THERE'S an island in the UK where cars are banned, has beautiful blue water and gorgeous beaches.

Not only that, but you can see seals, and puffins and go dolphin-spotting around the island.

Herm Island is one of the Channel Islands, and it's only three miles away from Guernsey.

To get there, you take the Herm passenger ferry from Peter Port Harbour in Guernsey, which takes just 15 minutes and costs £8 per person for a one-way ticket.

It is one of the smaller Channel Islands with only 60 people living there.

However, tourists often visit during the summer with attractions including the island's beautiful beaches and outdoor activities like archery, kayaking, fishing, and garden tours.
