A Hidden Gem
At just one and a half miles wide and three and a half miles long, you are never far from the charming town centre of St. Anne or our beautiful coastline. You can walk the stunning cliff paths, enjoy our quiet, uncrowded sandy beaches or tuck into our local produce. Go bird-watching, rock pooling or explore our history. Be entertained by a wide variety of events or simply enjoy a night of star-gazing under our truly dark skies.
Alderney’s unique position between the Normandy coast and England has shaped its history and at just 3.5 by 1.5 miles, wherever you are on the island you don’t have to travel far to find the past. From World War II bunkers to ancient burial grounds, forts and an Iron Age pottery – it’s all here waiting to be discovered.
Alderney may be a small island but the diverse landscape is one of its greatest assets and the wildlife and habitats that flourish here make it a truly fascinating place to visit whatever the season. If you love wildlife, you’ll love Alderney!
