Creux & Maseline HarboursThe old harbour, said to be one of the world's smallest, is only used by passenger ferries when weather conditions cause landing difficulties at Maseline. It is very picturesque, enclosing a small beach and reached by two tunnels cut through the reddish-brown cliffs. It is mainly used today, by the local fishermen, and visiting yachtsmen.
The jetty construction at Maseline was begun in 1938, before the German occupation, and finally completed in 1949. It provides deep-water mooring and is used by the Isle of Sark Shipping Company to bring visitors to the island. Foot passengers walk through the tunnel at the end of the quay, out along the unmetalled road, to experience their first ride in the 'toast-rack'. This unique transport takes visitors up and down the 300 foot Harbour Hill.
