Islands Without Cars

Most of us crave a simpler life. Imagine a place without cars, trains or buses. Talk about the ultimate in getaway destinations!

ISLANDS WITHOUT CARS is a unique series that takes a rare and whimsical look at life on islands without cars, where with a few exceptions, everyone travels and transports goods by donkey, bicycle and other non-motorized vehicles. The charming and engaging host, comedian and actress Kira Hesser, introduces us to six gorgeous locations including: Italy's Aeolian Islands, Croatia's Dalmatian Coast, The Channel Island of Sark, Ireland's Inish Meain, The Greek Island of Hydra and France's Isle of Porquerolles.
