The trail takes visitors around a football ground near to Port Soif beach which leads to a pond and small area of marshland.
We start at Fort Hommet, a fascinating headland which combines a nature reserve and important historical site. Both Vazon and Cobo Bay are popular areas with locals and visitors and, as such, are full of great places to eat ranging from fine dining to beach kiosks, traditional tearooms and a popular fish and chip shop. In fact, one of the most popular things to do in this part of the island is head there for an evening picnic and watch the beautiful sunsets.
At the far end of Cobo sits the impressive Chateau Grandes Rocques, once a school, then a hotel and now a private residence. Beyond is Port Soif, a horseshoe-shaped bay which is home to both rare species of birds and a popular and safe family-friendly beach with a lovely sheltered kiosk.
