WorldNorth AtlanticNorth SeaUnited KingdomEnglandPoole Harbour

Poole Harbour is a beautiful natural harbour on the south coast of England. It's an easy days sail from the Solent or Portland.

The harbour is not particularly welcome to cruisers unless you arrive in a superyacht. In general, if you would like to stay in a marina you should book. Most marinas are 100% full with berth holders and have been known to offer little assistance to cruisers even when in distress.

Despite this, it is a beautiful harbour and there a few good anchorages where you can drop anchor. It also offers excellent protection from all directions from the sea so is a good safe haven in the event of adverse weather.
