The marina has 228 berths, where there’s also storage available ashore for more than 200 boats. From its modernised slipway to the access pontoon, boat hoist and crane, there are marine trades such as yacht brokers at the marina, as well as plenty of parking space for cars. In addition to facilities such as showers, toilets, electric vehicle charging and even a laundrette, there’s a lounge to relax in at the marina, as well as a sun terrace and cafe. Salt Shack Cafe Northney is right by the water’s edge, with seating available both inside and outside. The cafe serves everything from barbecue breakfasts to afternoon tea, with the option to eat in or take away. Whether you’re after a full English, ciabatta, homemade soup, salad or fresh seafood, the cafe’s fare is well presented and reasonably priced, while dogs are also welcome. It’s worth noting that the Northney Marina cafe is usually closed on Mondays, except for bank holidays. It opens from 9:00am to 5:00pm every other day during the summer months, with slightly shorter hours over winter.
If you’re driving to the marina, take the Havant and Hayling Island roundabout south off the A27 onto the A3023. After crossing Langstone Bridge, take the first left onto Northney Road and the marina will be right in front of you a few hundred metres up the road. To arrive by public transport, you can catch a train to Havant Station, which offers direct services to London Waterloo taking around an hour and 20 minutes. Hop on the number 30 or 31 bus at the station, and get off at the stop just after the bridge. This will leave you with a short stroll to the marina.
Whilst you wait... just think about being in your swimmers, the sun's out and the smiles are big
