Channel Islands

Sitting between England and France, surrounded by turquoise waters, are the incredible Channel Islands. This hidden gem of golden sand beaches will leave you thinking you have crash landed in the Caribbean. Heaven on earth!

For two years, Gemma lived and worked here, exploring the golden sands and soaking up the local history. Living on the second largest of the islands, Guernsey, Gemma frequently travelled to the smaller islands of Sark and Herm. Together, we also explored the largest of the islands (and home to the government of the Channel Islands), Jersey.
