Visiting The River

Experience the beauty and tranquility of the Beaulieu River and visit us either for the day, overnight or even longer.

Berths for overnight visitors can be reserved in advance for the marina, subject to availability. Alternatively, you may be offered a mid-stream visitor pontoon or please pick up a vacant swinging mooring displaying a 'V', but remember a dinghy will be required to get ashore.

We politely ask that visiting vessels arriving inside the limits of the Beaulieu River report to the Harbour Master upon arrival. The office can be contacted during opening hours via VHF on channel 68 call sign “Beaulieu River Radio” or by calling 01590 616200.

The Harbour Master’s Office is open 8am - 5pm.

For enquiries regarding permanent annual moorings or berths, please give us a call or 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.
