Alderney (or Aurigny), is less well-known than Jersey or Guernsey, yet has a rich history strewn with old French-English rivalries, remains of which can still be visited along the hiking trails. It is an unspoiled island, home to diverse flora and fauna and a paradise for northern gannets. A haven for northern gannets, you can also encounter puffins, seals and dolphins.
Sailing from Cherbourg to Alderney will take 3-4 hours, starting at the Cotentin Peninsula then crossing the Raz Blanchard, famous for its strong currents. The afternoon can spent either sailing or hiking, depending on your own preferences. The night will be spent moored to a buoy or anchored. The next day, you will visit Saint Anne, capital of this little jewel, for a complete change of scenery, leaving you with fantastic memories. For more information on Alderney click here.
