Things to see and do at St Helen's Duver

Pack a picnic, the children and the dog then set off for a day at St Helen's Duver. There's something to keep everyone busy from rock pooling on the beach to wildflower and bird spotting and plenty of grassy open land for running amok.

The Duver

St Helen's Duver is a wonderful open space to wander, fly a kite, walk the dog, watch the birds, or just sit and enjoy the tranquillity. In May it is carpeted with thrift, but at all times of the year there is so much to see.

Beach at Nodes Point

The beach at St Helen's is great for rock pooling, as well as for making sand castles or simply sitting and watching the ships pass by.

Rockpooling by the shore

Nodes Point is one of the best places in southern England to explore rock pools amongst the limestone ledges.
