The Market at Saint Helier is a colourful and joyful place where you can post your letters (post office), have a nice cup of tea, or have some fish'n chips, buy flowers for your Valentine, or a Birthday cake, or simply walk around and do your daily shopping.
St Helier, and all of Jersey I guess, has one of the largest tide flows I've ever seen. When it's in it is right on the front but it disappears leaving what looks like a lunar surface when it goes out.
Good beachcombing opportunities?
Named after QE1 many years ago, the castle guards the entrance to the harbour. If the tide is out you can walk to it but if it's in the only way to it is by "puddleduck" an amphibeous craft - see a later transport tip.
Cost of entry for adults (2006) is £5.40 this gives you access pretty much all over, theres lots to see, mostly from the German occupation in WWII.
Be there around 12:30 to see the ceremonial firing of the cannon.
Good cafe for snacks and meals too, in good weather sit outside and watch the resident chickens try to steal your food.
We spent almost 3 hours there, very enjoyable.
Jersey War Tunnels
One of the most popular places to visit on Jersey, a short bus ride from St Helier.
This is a tunnel complex built by forced labourers for the occupying German army during WWII.
Originaly to be used as a secure base and then as a military hospital now it shows what life was like on Jersey during and immediately after the war. Several interesting video interviews with peolple there at the time.
We found it to be interesting and took arouind 2 hours to complete a trip around.
Pleasant but very busy cafe and visitor centre there also.
Well worth a visit.
Good place to shop for a picnic, fresh fruit and veg are great, or gifts to take home. A couple of cafes serving tasty food as well.
Excellent place to visit when the weather is not so good.
Havre des Pas
This was the best beach we found in St Helier. If the weather is good, a great place to spend time, if the tide is in (see later tip) there are seats on the prom too.
Outside the tourist information office, the monument to liberation from German occupation in WWII. Now a pleasant place to sit and enjoy a locally made ice cream.
On Harve des Pas seafront, the pier has a safe bathing area, patrolled by lifeguards in the summer. There are cafes and good places to enjoy the sunshine.
Spent a lovely cople of hours here.
