St Helens is a beautifl village that is on the eastern most tip of the Island, close to Ryde and Bembridge.  The village boast Englands’  largest village green and this village is often missed by many.  It has it all, a quaint village shop, a pub and several, excellent restaurants.

 

The village overlooks Bembridge Harbour and a short walk takes you to the harbourside.  From here you can walk across the causeway to the other side of the harbour to St Helens Duver, which is now under the protection and care of the National Trust.  This area of sandy grassland fronts on to the Solent and is a great beach for all ages.  When the tide goes out, the kids will love exploring the rock pools on the beach.
