Sark, Channel Islands, England Overview
Sark consists of two main parts, Greater Sark, located at about 49° 25′ N x 2° 22′ W, and Little Sark to the south. They are connected by a narrow isthmus called La Coupée which is 300 feet (91 m) long and has a drop of 330 feet (100 m) on each side.Protective railings were erected in 1900; before then, children would crawl across on their hands and knees to avoid being blown over the edge. There is a narrow concrete road covering the entirety of the isthmus, built in 1945 by German prisoners of war under the direction of the Royal Engineers. Due to its isolation, the inhabitants of Little Sark had their own distinct form of Sercquiais, the native Norman dialect of the island.
The highest point on Sark is 374 feet (114 m) above sea-level.A windmill, dated 1571, is found there, the sails of which were removed during World War I. This high point is named Le Moulin, after the windmill. The location is also the highest point in the Bailiwick of Guernsey. Little Sark had a number of mines accessing a source of galena.At Port Gorey, the ruins of silver mines may be seen. Off the south end of Little Sark are the Venus Pool and the Adonis Pool, both natural swimming pools whose waters are refreshed at high tide.

Sea kayaking in Sark, Channel Islands with Jersey Kayak Adventures
Sark is a superb sea kayaking destination. It is one of my favourites on our offshore "mothership" sea kayak tours with Jersey Kayak Adventures. Sark is surrounded by 75m high cliffs so landing spots are limited. The big plus is that the coastline is riddled with caves.
