Visiting The River

Visiting vessels are welcome in the Beaulieu River. The masters of vessels arriving inside the limits of the river must report to the Harbour Master within 24 hours.

Visitors are welcome to enter the marina at any time, day or night. Berths for overnight visitors can be reserved in advance, subject to availability. Alternatively, you may be offered a visitor pontoon or mooring upstream of the marina but a dinghy will be required to get ashore.

The Harbour Master’s Office is manned 08:00-21:00 in summer; 08:00-16:30 in winter (08:00-16:00 weekends in winter).

To make an enquiry about visiting the marina, please call us on 01590 616200.

For enquiries regarding permanent annual moorings or berths, please complete our enquiry form.

Navigating the Beaulieu River

We sometimes hear from people who are concerned about navigating the bar at the entrance to the Beaulieu River. But as author and sailor Tom Cunliffe says, it's the 'friendliest bar' he knows!

Watch his video for some great advice on how to navigate your way into the river and up to the marina.



Enjoy spectacular views of the Solent on one of our new visitor moorings. Located just ten minutes from the entrance, our new visitor buoys offer a cheaper alternative to our marina. There are 8 swinging moorings marked with a green V that can accommodate vessels up to 40ft.


£10 / night

Short Stay


*Maximum stay 7 nights.

We also offer a variety of swinging moorings further upriver, which are marked with a yellow V. Please see below for prices.
