Whiteharbour lies along the coast about 1km SW of Whitehead, it is identified from sea by the substantial limestone block sea wall.
TRAVELLING BY SEA?
The entrance to the harbour by sea is at the SW end of the limestone harbour between the rounded harbour end and a basalt rock armour sea defence. Two red triangular reflective beacons are positioned to guide vessels into the port side of the outer mouth, then a 90°turn to starboard takes you through the inner mouth (4metres wide) and into the secluded mooring points.
A sill at the inner mouth retains a 1-2 metre mooring depth at the pontoon fingers.This sill inevitably restricts depths on entering at low tide so please take extra care on approach, a depth gauge will be visible on the inner mouth to assist you. Although periodically dredged depending on recent weather conditions the outer mouth can silt up to a similar level as the sill.
BY ROAD- Access to Whiteharbour is by a private lane passing local residential homes & for this reason access by road is unfortunately restricted to birth holders, 'Friends of Whiteharbour' , so give us a call if you'd like a look around.
