We walked from Mission Bay to St Heliers it is a very nice flat walk and any body can do this. The main street is on the water and lots of eateries to take in the view

A very pretty beach and surrounding area for a relaxing outing and swim. Take a picnic or visit local cafe, fish 'n chip shop or bakery instead.

Nice beach. Good eateries near by but shopping area lacks a shop to provide things like football, fishing equipment, surf boards so make sure you come prepared.
