Bland modern housing estate ruining the local beach. Absolutely no character or sense of geography. A true blight on the local landscape.

Nice to watch the boats, (dream and pretend!) something for everyone food wise. Relaxing. Quriky little shops, a bit like the Lanes in Brighton.

I regularly go to the harbour to walk along the sea front, eat & drink with friends old and new and to take photographs.(Especially at night). It is not a large area which I think is part of its charm. Mainly a residential area as many beautiful apartments nearby. It's a wonderful place to people watch and sip a glass... More

If you enjoy marinas such as Puerto Banus, or even Poole Quay, don't bother with this one! I expected lots of bars, shops, some sort of ambience...what I got was blocks of flats, shops you'd find anywhere and a Harvester full of buggies - not my idea of a relaxing Sunday afternoon! Lots of boats to look at and a... More

If you are sailing in from the east, maybe from Dunkerque or Calais, you will have aimed to hit HW off Dungeness to have the tide with you all the way. However, this means you will reach Soveriegn on the last of the ebb. Take care, as the entrance frequently silts, and give the Barnhill (wreck to starboard) a reasonable... More

Loved this place. Nice promenade along the harbour with beautiful boats on display. Excellent indoor and outdoors dining available. I was there in February but it must be buzzing in the summer!
