The most northerly and third largest Channel Island, Alderney boasts over 50 miles of cliff walks, fortresses, World War II batteries, and a nine hole golf course.
Just 3 miles long by 1.5 miles wide, the island offers a relaxing retreat and we are often asked for Alderney to be twinned with Guernsey. Direct flights from Southampton and Guernsey mean you can continue your holiday without going back on yourself.
This quirky island — only ten miles off the French coast — is home to the rare blonde hedgehog, which can sometimes be seen scavenging for food in the capital of St Anne’s. Wildlife watchers will be treated to dozens of fascinating birds and animals, many unseen on mainland Britain.
Alderney is an island of contrasts. Beautiful sandy beaches and grassy dunes are found on the north and east coasts, while St Anne’s has picturesque cobbled streets, and a choice of bars, restaurants, and eclectic shops.
A great time to visit is early August, where the annual Alderney Week festival (the largest of its kind throughout the Channel Islands) is perennially popular with locals and tourists alike.
