Key time to cruise: All year round
What we enjoyed: The lack of vehicles and using bikes to get around.

Sark is an island in the Channel Islands in the southwestern English Channel, off the coast of Normandy, France. It is a royal fief, which forms part of the Bailiwick of Guernsey, with its own set of laws based on Norman law and its own parliament. It has a population of about 600. Sark is one of the few remaining places in the world where cars are banned from roads and only tractors and horse-drawn vehicles are allowed. In 2011, Sark was designated as a Dark Sky Community and the first Dark Sky Island in the world.

The island can be enjoyed by walking, horse and cart or for the more adventurous by bike. The crew had a great time cycling from the main port over to Little Sark. It’s a steep climb to Little Sark but a well-deserved lobster lunch and refreshment was enjoyed by all.
