Embrace the outdoors

One of the Alderney's most impressive features is its stunning landscape. Put on your walking shoes and warm jacket and take a stroll along our coastal footpaths to witness the very best of the island's winter landscape, from the beautiful wind-blown south cliffs to the vast sandy beaches of Saye and Longis.

Why not top it off with a well-deserved meal at one of our excellent pubs or restaurants next to a cosy log fire.
