Sark is located about nine miles east of Guernsey and twenty three miles north of Jersey with access only permissible by boat with regular ferries to Guernsey and Jersey where there are international airports. Flight time to Gatwick is about thirty minutes by jet.
Sark is spectacular in both its scenery and its simplicity; its tranquil beauty is unmarred by cars or tarmac roads and yet enhanced by excellent modern facilities for residents and visitors alike.

Transport on Sark is restricted to the horse and carriage, the bicycle and ‘shanks pony’. Tractors are, however, allowed by licence for general farm work, carting of goods from the harbour, and personal transport by arrangement. Everyday shopping facilities are available on Sark together with a selection of excellent hotels, restaurants, and public houses.
TAXATION: Sark does not levy any income tax, property gains tax, capital gains tax, inheritance tax or value-added-tax on its residents. Other local taxes are very moderate.
