Havre des Pas
Havre des Pas is on the edge of St Helier and is a mainly residential area with some very attractive examples of late 19th century houses and a recently restored Victorian lido. The small beachfront and promenade are home to some good cafes, bars, and restaurants.
TOP 5 PLACES TO EAT & DRINK IN HAVRE DES PAS
Dockyard Restaurant at Marina Hotel is right on the seafront on the promenade close to the Lido and is a very popular and friendly place for locals and visitors in the know. Reservations are strongly recommended for al fresco tables and for Sunday lunch.
Moita’s Bistro on the seafront is our favorite Portuguese restaurant in Jersey, the cataplana for two is especially recommended.
The Good Egg Beach Cafe is one of the best cafes in St Helier and it is right on the seafront. There are lots of breakfast/ brunch classics and some great veggie options. In the summer months try and time your visit with high tide and get a sea view on the upstairs deck.
Petisco Tradicional is a small friendly cafe/ restaurant just a block away from the seafront. It serves great value Portuguese dishes as well as old favorites like homemade lasagne-huge portions- with chips.
White Horse Beach Bar & Eatery serves decent pub food and has a small outdoor area overlooking the beach.
WHAT TO SEE & DO
Howard Davis Park is an oasis of quiet on the edge of the town centre and only a couple of blocks from the seafront.
Paddleboarding– SUP- is easy to master and a fun water sport that you can enjoy in the sheltered bay at Havre des Pas.
The restored Victorian Lido at Havre des Pas is photogenic, however unfortunately the Lido itself has a problem with anti- social behaviour and it is not recommended for families.
The beach/ Lido is less than a 20-minute walk from the Royal Square in the centre of town.
A cycle track starts here and goes all the way along the seafront for about 5km to the harbour at St Aubin. A regular bus from the station in town goes to Gorey and in the other direction along the main beach road.
