Havre des Pas is a mainly residential area with some very attractive examples of late 19th century houses.
The small beach and Victorian lido is home to many hotels, cafes, bars, and restaurants. It is less than a 15-minute walk from the Royal Square.
A cycle track starts here and goes all the way along the seafront for about 5km to the harbour at St Aubin and a regular bus goes to Gorey from the main beach road.
WHERE TO EAT:
Moita’s Bistro on the seafront is our favorite Portuguese restaurant in Jersey, the cataplana 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 the breakfast/ brunch classics and some great veggie options.
Drifters is a friendly bar/ bistro serving good food right on the seafront.
A couple of doors down and also right on the seawall, The Marina Hotel has al fresco dining through summer and early autumn.
Petisco Tradicional serves great value Portuguese dishes as well as old favorites like homemade lasagne-huge portions- with chips.
WHAT TO SEE & DO:
Howard Davis Park is an oasis of quiet on the edge of the town centre and 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.
