Our little island is just a short hop from mainland UK. Climb aboard one of our little yellow Trislander planes or set sail across the waters and you will soon arrive in paradise . . . 

By Air

Alternative Airlines

Other airlines such as Flybe and Blue Islands operate routes to Guernsey from most major British airports and International airports in France, Spain and Italy. You are then only a 15 minute flight from Alderney.



By Sea


Alderney has some of the most challenging sailing waters in the world, it is also the first and last port of call when crossing The Channel, so it is no wonder we have a high number of boats passing through.

There are a few anchorages in Alderney’s sheltered bays, but these are only safe in calm conditions. Braye Harbour has 70 yellow visitor mooring buoys available along with anchorage. The Harbourmaster's Office is responsible for all moorings as well as providing weather information and facilities including dinghy pontoon, slipway, showers, WCs, launderette, telephones, chandlers and rubbish skip. The Sailing Club welcomes visiting yachtsmen and is open daily from 1800 – 2000.
