The island is blessed with spectacular scenery, bays, coastal paths and cliff top views and the fact it is car-free means it is a world away from the rest of modern day Britain. A horse and carriage ride is the perfect way to explore the island. Sark is known for its seafood and its wide range of flora and fauna, while if you head to L'eperquerie, on the northern tip of the island,you'll discover a granite rock overlooking the islands of Guernsey, Jethou and Herm which was carved with a mantra by a visiting Buddhist monk from Tibet. Sark has miles of breath-taking coastline and plenty of sandy bays and pebbly coves to explore, though many of them involve a combination of steps and paths which can be fairly steep. per person on selected departures Prices from: Ferry Flight Sep 7, 2019 959 929 1109 1079 Sep 21 919 849 1069 999 Oct 12 849 799 989 939 Jun 20, 2020 949 1099 Jul 25 999 1199 Sep 05 999 1149 Oct 10 799 949 Rooms for sole occupancy from £799 A Channel Island Sojourn.
