Our sister Island recorded a 50% increase in tourism between June and July this year, making the demand for hotel beds higher than three years ago – before Covid-19.

More than 12,000 visitors travelled to the island via passenger ferries last month, with an approximately 2,500 more arriving by private boats.

Sark hotelier Paul Armorgie says 2022 is looking like a record-breaking year with visitors from Guernsey and the UK, as well as Europe.

'Sark is enjoying a really positive, upbeat year.’

Guernsey's tourism trade is also showing a strong-recovery from the pandemic, with guest accommodation forecast to be at more than 80% full for August. That's compared to 75% during peak-summer before Covid. Read the latest occupancy data here:
