Unforgettable nature
Approx.  15 km from the French coast there is a real oasis of quiet and unspoiled nature. Alderney is the second largest and most northern of the islands, belonging to Bailiwick of Gurnsey and are also called Aurigny by the Frenchmen. With its varied landscape, fresh air and beautiful sand beaches, Alderney is an ideal holiday destination for people wanting a simple and peaceful holiday in quiet surroundings . But you should not be fooled by the first impression, as when you arrive to the island either by boat or by plane, Alderney appears as windswept and unapproachable. There are hardly any trees on the island, except a few in the two smaller valleys. But by further inspection, the more comfortable and peaceful side of the island appears.

Stamps from Alderney
The postal independency of the island has come in stages. First Bailiwick of Guernsey became postal independency in 1969 and thereby their own stamps, which naturally also were valid for Alderney. Since then the need for freedom and independency in Alderney grew and thereby the need for their own stamps, which were issued for the first time in 1983. Alderney belongs to the few areas, which can still be collected complete – and even at an affordable price.
