Located off the Normandy Coast of France, The Channel Islands are a wonderful mix of an England of old, combined with French influences. Positioned at the mouth of the Gulf of St Malo, the Channel Islands enjoy a mild, maritime climate, with summer sunshine hours well above the UK average.
Regarded as British Crown Dependencies, yet with their own separate governments and currencies, the Channel Islands are made up of two separate bailiwicks. The largest of the five main islands is the Bailiwick of Jersey whilst the Bailiwick of Guernsey comprises Guernsey, Alderney, Sark and Herm.
The Islands are a gastronomic delight with an abundance of fresh fish, lobsters, crabs, scallops and the local delicacy or ormers, native to Channel Islands’ waters. You’re never more than 10 minutes from the sea on any of the Channel Islands.
