The Channel Islands are owned by Great Britain and lie in the English Channel at the entrance to the French Golfe de St-Malo. There are four main islands namely Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney, and Sark. The two main towns are St. Peter Port on Guernsey, and St. Helier on Jersey. The islands are a major tourist spot in the summer months with a delightful French flavour. Two well-known breeds of dairy cattle called Jersey and Guernsey were first raised on these charming Channel Islands.
