I know the Island of Sark very well as my grandparents lived there when I was little and we have a bench there to commenrate their memory. Sark is only reachable by boat with the majority coming from Guernsey however one now and again from Jersey. On reaching Sark you reach the new harbour which is the main harbour now for all the boat traffic. However when walking through the tunnel there is another harbour which is nicknamed the Old Harbour. Whilst waiting of the bottom of Harbour hill which is so steep you can choose to walk up or there is a bus service this consists of Tractors and a pulllong trailer with seats and the locals nickname it the toast rack.

We wanted to experience the stress free style of living on Sark and arrived at around 10.45am. Opting for an exploration on foot, which is easily achievable in the few hours you have on the Island, our only disappointment was to discover that the shops, as few as they are, close for an hour at lunchtime. With the ferry due to leave after 3.00pm the 'visitors' are on the Island for some five hours maximum and the place comes to a standstill. Stress free, yes. Civilised, I'm not sure. Perhaps the happy Islanders do not need the income from tourism. However, undeterred, I have since tried to buy an item on line only for the web site not to be recognised.

I had a day trip to Sark this year; I was led to believe that this island is a quiet backwater in the vast hubbub of life, with the only transport by horse drawn carriages or by bicycle. On arrival at Sark harbour from Jersey using a fast catamaran boat service I found that this was nearly but not quite true. There was a tractor pulled train waiting to transport the passengers up a long steep hill to the main village in Sark, and while there is no motorcars or buses, there seemed to be a lot of tractors. (So much for no cars!). The Island. Sark itself is only about 1 ½ miles long and 1 mile wide with a small island (Little Sark) joined on at one end ... Read the complete review

Sark is one of the smaller Channel Islands at just three and a half miles long and one and a half miles wide. Accessible only by sea, this little island offers a peaceful and beautiful place to spend a holiday (actually I'd like to live there but a holiday will do for starters) So what makes Sark unique? Firstly, it has no cars - transport is by horse, bicycle, tractor or public transport (horse and carriage!). As there are no cars, there are also no roads, just a series of dirt tracks and numerous short cuts across the fields - the short cuts are regularly used because there are no fences (not even to keep cattle in) and the people are so friendly that ...

If you get sea-sick, Sark is not the place for you as this island has no airport, so your only way of reaching it is by sea. Cars are not allowed in Sark and the only motorised form of transport is tractors, which often have trailers on for transporting people up the long, steep hill from the harbour. Alternatives are pony and trap (don't worry, they come with drivers) or shanks' pony. You can also hire bikes once you get to town. Because there are no cars, there are no tarmacked roads, only tracks, which adds to the feel of a land out of time. However, they have electricity, banks and all modern appliances, including the internet, so ... Read the complete review
