Observe seals and wildlife. Perhaps see dolphins en-route to the island. Enjoy the incredible experience of kayaking around tiny islets with fisherman’s cabins. Walk huge sand bars, which within a few hours will be submerged under many metres of ocean.

The archipelago is a site of unique interest and is one of Jerseys hidden treasures. It is now a Ramsar wetlands site.
