Lots to see and enjoy just walking round the area. Boat rides, lots of different places to have a meal and drinks. Very nice shops to browse and collect souvenirs. Or just watching the boats coming and going. Lovely day out.

I love the sea and boats so wherever I am in the country a marina or harbour is a magnate and my wife is dragged along to see whatever is on offer. There are several OK restaurants and the usual array of shops and I drop in if we need to go shopping near by but Brighton, just down the... More

On an Sunny autumnal day the perfect setting to dine al fresco at the waterside. Good choice of restaurants with extensive menus. Time to sit and watch the world go by. A very good shop to walk around containing a good selection of unusual quality gift ideas. Free parking.

Just come back from a fabulous walk along the front to the Sovereign Harbour. We started at Princes Park and walked back again. We stopped at a cafe in the harbour and sat outside for some breakfast . Lovely !

Walking around the marina harbour is a joy. The variety of boats is so interesting. We go onto the beach and look out at people sailing, wind-surfing, surf-kiting, jet-skiing, kayaking etc and then walk around to the lock gates and see the lock mechanism working and the people and boats passing through. The variety of cafes and restaurants means that... More

Lovely ambience around the harbour. It was a beautiful day when we were there so we did a lovely circular walk around the harbour. There is a very small selection of shops, nothing much to write home about but to be honest we didn't go there to shop. Glad we visited and would recommend going there.

Our second visit .Walked to this place from Eastbourne last year-it's a longer walk than anything locals tell you but nice walk. Lovely marina. Second visit made to find food. Plenty on offer & free parking.

This is a development of flats and a lovely harbour full of private yachts. Plenty of restaurants and places to chat. Great place for a sunny afternoon. Boat trips too.
