It is not really much of a harbour, hence the need for a very long pier. The actual yacht harbour is tidal and quite small compared with many marinas. The main attraction is watching the hovercraft going in and out.

We spent a couple of hours before our ferry enjoying the delights of Ryde Harbour. There are ice creams to eat and frequent Hovercraft to watch, not to mention spotting landmarks in Portsmouth if you happen to have binoculars!

I was so impressed with all the staff and crew on the Ferry and its surrounding area. You all do such a good job, and often, I am sure, with trying visitors! But, most impressed, and about time the workers got a thumbs up!

Popped down with the grandkids. Simple small harbour but plenty for them to look at with interest. Able to purchase food etc from several places so that also helped.
