Havre des Pas Beach - Jersey

© Man vyi

Havre de Pas is a popular beach on the outskirts of St Helier. The beach here is mainly composed of coarse sand with some seaweed exposed at low tide.

The main feature of the beach is the large tidal bathing pool originally built in the 1890’s and re-designed in Art Deco style in the 1920s. The pool fills with fresh seawater and provides a popular bathing destination for locals as well as tourists.

Havre des Pas is south-facing and is generally quite sheltered from sea breezes.

Toilets, shops and a choice of places to eat can be found nearby. Parking close to the beach is fairly limited but St Helier’s main car parks are not too far away.
