When the weather is as hot as it has been there is nothing more exciting and simpler in life than getting out on the water and taking a leisurely course to a stunning UK seaside or harbour to enjoy the sunshine and sizzling temperatures.
At Adec Marine we specialise in safety and security while you’re out on the water, but we also like to ensure our customers have fun too, so here are our top 5 boating harbours to set your anchor this summer, whether you’ve got a small sailing boat or yacht, there’s something for everyone.
#1 Weymouth, Dorset
Named one of the topUK coastal destinations, due to the fact that the Olympic sailing took place here, Weymouth is a safe and easily accessibly destination for boaters. However, as well as the attraction of the water, it is also a beautiful coastal town with a beach that holds blue flag status meaning that it is clean, safe and full of wonderful appeal to families with young children. The bay is famous for its safe bathing and a range of water sport activities and to ensure maximum security at all times, the bay works alongside Dorset Marine Police and the National Coast Watch Institution. All you have to do is to ensure that your life rafts and lifejackets are fully servicedto enable efficient safety in the event of an accident along the way.
#2 Penzance, Cornwall
A western town in Cornwall but worth every part of the journey. However because depths of the harbour here are shallow it is not recommended to travel or anchor here when onshore winds are rough. The nearby town of Newlyn provides a solution when this is the case. A town full of charm and one of the largest in Cornwall – but with temperatures a lot milder here than other areas in the country- it offers an excellent opportunity to develop a tan on the beautiful stretch of beach. The nearby beach of Newquay also promotes one of Britain’s top 10 beaches.
#3 Lynmouth, North Devon
If you own a fishing boat and want a delightful little spot to anchor and watch the world go by then this beautiful place is just that with many artists popping by to paint the landscape. The village curves along a wooded shore where the Lyn River joins. It is also home to a stunning cliff railway which is worth checking out on your travels.
#4 Stonehaven, Scotland
Anyone travelling here has a choice a great anchoring destination in the form of the main harbour which although has long been in need of rebuilding, is still one of the liveliest public harbours in the UK. Originally a fishing village, it is built around a high street and has a vast sense of history to explore.
#5 Barry, The Vale of Glamorgan, Wales
A seaside favourite for holidaying Brits because not only does it boast the charm of a seaside town but it also has some of the best facilities for water sports and social occasions to rival most seaside towns. As well as a beautiful beach it also has incredible cliffs and even more beautiful beaches surrounding the town. It was also where Gavin and Stacey was filmed. Furthermore, the village has its own yacht club and an excellent harbour for mooring. Stop in one of the many yachting pubs for a pint too and enjoy the scenery.
