The framed view through this natural wind in the Rock on the island of Sark is nothing short of magnificent. Well worth the cycle and walk down through the woods to experience the jaw dropping view. Be careful though as there is a sheer drop...More

This was a real treat seeing the view from the Window but beware of just how sheer the drop is! The view is just as good if you walk to the left of the window too!

I visited Sark in November, which is NOT a tourist month! Most everything is closed but if you enjoy hiking and no tourist, there are numerous things to see. The Window in the Rock is one. No one knows why it's there, but it it...More

Wow! On so many levels! On the one hand, this is a dangerous place - a few well placed rocks on approach (to slow you down?) and a little danger sign is all there is to defend you from a vertical plummet to the end...More
