I would suggest St Aubin as it is a pleasant ride along the coast on the bus. There is also the petit train which also runs along the coast if you fancy one way. Plenty of pubs and restaurants for most budgets at St Aubin plus a fort that you can walk to at low tide and a harbour. Just a nice quaint little place.

Try a trip to the East of the Island. If you get the Number 2 bus from the bus station in St. Helier, that will take you direct to St. Catherine's. You can take a walk along the breakwater, visit the sand sculpture and then have a coffee in the cafe next to the bus stop. Hop back on the Number 2 and get off at Gorey. You can spend time looking around Gorey, visit the castle and walk to the very end of the pier, then have lunch at somewhere like The Moorings. The Tennerfest is currently on so it is good value. You can then pop along to The Dolphin which is a few doors away for a few drinks before catching the Number 1 bus back to St. Helier. The Number 1 takes in the coastal route and is a lovely drive, it runs about every 15/20 minutes during the day.

If it is a nice day, you can walk from St. Helier to St. Aubin, it takes just over the hour. You follow the promenade all the way and it is very nice indeed as it is next to the sea. There are quite a few beach cafes along the route where you can stop for a break. If you don't want to use the 'Petite Train' back to St. Helier, the buses from St. Aubin back to the bus station in St. Helier run approximately every 10 to 15 minutes, sometimes more frequently.

If you are really energetic, you can walk all the way to Corbiere lighthouse, following the old railway path that has now been turned into a beautiful walk and cycle route.
