There’s an extremely good chance that you’ve never heard of Alderney Island. That’s because it’s a tiny paradise located in the English Channel. There’s less than 2,000 people living on it and they must be keeping it a secret, because it’s beautiful. These pictures were taken by local photographers and it’s all you’ll need to see to be convinced to visit this unique getaway.
Alderney is the third largest of the Channel Islands.
You probably didn’t realize there were even islands in the English Channel…
The little islands are scattered throughout the channel like little private paradises.
Alderney in particular is only 1.5 miles long and 3.5 miles wide.
It makes up for in beauty.
And also the friendly attitude of its inhabitants.
Yes, this is the UK’s neighbor.
“So close. So different.”
Alderney has its own government and finance sector.
You don’t have to travel far from the UK to find paradise.
Because of its location, the island has a mild climate.
If you haven’t packed your bags yet…
The seasons still change on Alderney, but it’s much easier to deal with when you live on an island.
Alderney is also called “lapins,” after the many wild bunnies that can be seen on the island.
St. Anne, the main town, is rustic and beautiful, complete with a large church and cobbled streets.
An old and beautiful town, gorgeous coasts, mild weather AND bunnies? I’m sold. Visit theisland’s website for more information!
