The Island of Sark enjoys a superb and varied coastline. From golden sand to earth-toned pebbles and a sea of ever changing blue and green hues, Sark's 40 miles of rugged coastal cliffs boasts a great number of bays, inlets, caves and rock pools.
Visitors to the island will be spoiled for choice as each bathing spot has its own particular character and attributes. At low tide the expansive sandy bays are wonderful for shallow water bathing and playing beach sports, whilst the many secluded rocky outcrops are perfect for a deep water dip or simply relaxing with a book and listening to the gently lapping waves of a rising tide. As Captain Ernest Platt wrote in the early 30's, “The greatest sport of all in Sark is without a doubt that of bathing”.
