Just one and a half miles wide, three and a half miles long, it’s truly a world apart. With walks and paths taking you across commons and beaches, along the cliffs and around town, the best way to discover Alderney is on foot.
Discover dramatic cliff walks, dotted with Victorian and German fortifications, the bird sanctuary island of Burhou, a designated RAMSAR site, and golden beaches.
It’s a bird watcher’s paradise where 260 species of birds have made the island their home including 7000 pairs of nesting gannets, puffins, pulmars, guillemots, Dartford warblers and peregrines. It’s even home to the Blonde Hedgehog, which is unique to the island.
