Day 3: Island of Sark
After breakfast, your coach will take you to St Peters Port for your boat crossing to the second smallest of the Channel Islands, Sark. Sark is the crown jewel of the Channel Islands, and it nestled in between Guernsey and Jersey, with spectacular scenery, bays, coastal paths and cliff top views. Almost two islands, Great Sark and Little Sark are linked by a dramatic causeway which plunges down to the sea on either side. A visit to Sark is like taking a step back in time. Journey time to Sark is approximately 55 minutes by boat. When you arrive on Sark, you will then take what is called the 'toast rack' - a tractor pulled bus which is waiting to take you to the top of the hill and to your waiting horse and carriage. These experienced drivers will take you on a tour of the island which lasts approx 2hrs. There are no cars on Sark and cycling is the best way to get around, The only motorised transport allowed on Sark is tractors, either for farm work or transporting luggage for those holidaying on the island. After your tour you are then free to wander the main street, enjoy one of the cafes and shops or explore more. You can get the toast rack back down to the little harbour for a small coast, or you can walk, it’s all downhill. Your boat will return to the harbour of St Peters Port.
