Pleasure craft offer trips direct from the Quay to Brownsea Island , Sandbanks and beyond, whilst anglers can book fishing trips at the Fisherman`s Quay . If you simply want to promenade along the waterfront past the visitors` marina and have a meal and a drink, then the Quayside and Old Town areas are packed with excellent restaurants, pubs and winebars offering huge variety and choice. From the Quay, shoppers can stroll up the pedestrianized High Street, with its wide range of retail outlets and facilities.

The Quay

About the marina/waterway

We are extremely lucky to have a location to rival that of the Mediterranean. Poole Quay Boat Haven is perfectly positioned to offer a base from which to explore Poole Harbour, the Jurassic Coast and the surrounding coastline. As well as being perfectly positioned on the quayside with a stunning view of Brownsea Island, the lively cafés, bars and restaurants are close by. The only difficult choice you have to make is where to watch the sun go down!
