Things to do in the Channel Islands

The size of the Channel Islands and the relatively flat terrain makes for a great opportunity to explore the islands on bicycle or by foot, with numerous tracks around the island.

The huge ratio of coastline to land also means that water sports feature high on the list of activities available on the islands, including kayaking, kite surfing, swimming, SCUBA diving, surfing, water skiing, windsurfing, sailing and fishing.

Land-based activities also abound, with abseiling, climbing, archery, blokarting, shooting and golf also all available. Then after a hard day's adventuring, guests can visit one of the island group's range of spas, or relax by the fire in your own self-catering holiday cottage.
