Try some island hopping and you'll also discover some fascinating history.
One of the most dramatic sights on Jersey, for example, is 13th-century Mount Orgeuil castle, built on the remains of an Iron Age fort a few miles east of the capital St Helier.
The islands proximity to France means there's a Gallic touch. Eavesdrop on conversations in an intriguing Norman-French patois. Buy a baguette and cycle, French-style, with it in your bicycle basket through streets whose names betray a strong Gallic influence.
On Guernsey walk through the maze of cobbled streets and steep stairways in St. Peter Port. Or enjoy a performance with the sea and the sky as the backdrop at Castle Cornet's open-air theatre.
And wherever you pause to eat, enjoy a crunchy, sea-fresh lobster or pile your plate high from a selection of succulent seafood. The Channel Islands have a well-deserved reputation for fine gourmet dining.
