The views of Beaulieu River from your boat are unique as the lower reaches of the river are not served by a footpath.
As you pass up the river there are many features of note including: Gull Island with rare colonies of nesting birds, Mulberry Dock where a floating dock was created for use in the D-Day landings, and Gins where the monks of Beaulieu Abbey kept their fishing boats and trading ships.
The lands bordering the river contain an exceptional variety of habitats which support an equally varied assemblage of wildlife. Access to areas of the reserve is available to the public by permit issued by the Beaulieu Estate Office.
The boats on the water belong to a variety of yacht clubs, these can be identified by their burgees. Click on the pdf below to assist with identifying the more commonly seen burgees on the Solent:
