Sark Island, United Kingdom (Pop.: 560)

Featuring more than 40 miles of gorgeous coastline, Sark is located in the English Channel. Only horse-drawn vehicles, bicycles and tractors are allowed on the island — though restrictions on some battery-powered buggies have been waived for the elderly. Passengers and goods arrive only by ferry as no airport exists on Sark and flyovers are strictly prohibited.
