Sandy Cove – Utilising Our Assets

Sandy Cove, to the south of the boat repair slipway and the South Pier, forms part of the harbour estate.

An under-utilised asset for many years, we have recently improved this part of the harbour, and tenants include heritage boat restorers and community groups.

Sandy Cove also provides containerised storage for fishermen, start-up business premises and car parking, as well as shore access for gig rowers, canoeists and anglers. 

For further information about parking permits, storage or facilities, please contact the Harbour Office.
