Situated between the rivers Plym and Tamar on the coast of Devon, the city of Plymouth has everything you could want from a British seaside holiday – the spectacular natural Harbour of Plymouth Sound, the majestic beaches of Whitesand and Bigbury Bays, Dartmoor National Park to the north, a wealth of heritage and cultural centres and some of the finest wining, dining and entertainment the UK has to offer.

Plymouth has long been a favourite with sailing and boating enthusiasts as the area has much to offer. Explore the stunning coastlines of Devon and Cornwall or venture inland along the lovely Rivers Yealm or Tamar and discover places of breathtaking natural beauty. To compliment Plymouth’s love affair with all things seafaring, there is the Barbican Maritime Village, a positively cosmopolitan area literally steeped in maritime history where the ghosts of Drake and Raleigh walk cobbled streets flanked with cafes, bars, restaurants, galleries and specialist craft shops.

The city centre is a thriving, bustling place with world-class shopping centre, traditional pubs, gourmet restaurants, fish bars, specialist markets and cafes. Visit the awesome Drake Circus centre with its forty-eight shops and restaurants or the ever-popular pannier market with one hundred plus stalls and famous farmers market. There are two excellent theatres – the Royal Theatre, with its programme of West End previews, and Plymouth Pavilions for variety shows, comedians and concerts. For those in search of nightlife there are the casinos, multiplex cinemas and countless bars and clubs that stay open well into the early hours.

For a more peaceful day or evening why not head over to Saltash. The yacht club there can normally provide a mooring, you can contact them on 01752 845988, or just simply cross the Tamar Bridge to get there. Once there you must go and relax in the "Just Be" Coffe and Wine Bar. There you can sit and look out on the water watching the world go by.

So whatever it is you want from your holiday, relaxation, hospitality, excitement, entertainment or surprises Plymouth has everything and much more.

The picturesque villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo lie on each side of the secluded Yealm River. A couple of pubs (the Swan and the Ship are in Noss Mayo and Newton Ferrers is home to the Dolphin.) There is also the welcoming Yealm Yacht Club, a few Shops and the Post Office are located in Newton Ferrers. The Harbour Office and showers are located at the bottom of the Yealm Steps at the inner end of the main dinghy pontoon. At the outer end of this pontoon is a water supply. There are three visitors swinging moorings. The first is located between Misery Point and Warren Point and will take a 60' / 25 ton displacement boat. There are 2 more swinging moorings on the south side of the channel opposite the Spit Bouy which can take up to three yachts each. There is a Visitor's pontoon in the Pool which can take around twenty yachts and a further Visitor's pontoon upstream off West Shore which provides about twenty berths. A two knot tide can run at various states of tide so some care should be taken when mooring.
Anchorages can be found in the entrance to the river and at Cellar Bay. The River Yealm can become busy at weekends in the high season. On these occasions when the visitor's moorings are full it is possible to pick up an empty private mooring but his is at your own risk and you must seek approval from the Harbour Master before you leave your boat. The Harbour Master and his staff are on the river from early in the morning to late in the evening fro April to October. The Harbour Master can be contacted by telephone on 01752 872533

Weir Quay Boatyard, just up the Tamar from Plymouth, has a haul out and re-launch offer. They are happy for you to work on your boat and also have engineers/shipwrights on hand if you need help. Great place. Worth checking out.

HI Ray
Our charts are accurate as they are reproduced UKHO charts. We have a licence agreement with them to feature them on our site. Our agreement stipulates though that we have to put a disclaimer on them. This is for legal reasons, and must be adhered to.
Hope this clears a few things up for you, and carry on using the site

How accurate are your charts on your guides? Each one has a disclaimer on them. If they are accurate why do this? I use your site for all sorts of information,as it covers all the things I need when visiting a marina, but not sure about the charts. Can someone explain?

Lorenzos Restaurant Plymouth:
We have had some experiences on our travels..Some pleasant and some not so.However Lorenzos has got to be THE most unpleasant experience! Dont waste your money..We have tried several other of your restaurants on this guide and have found no problems with the rest.
ps we dont usually complain but we thought this needed mentioning, it was that bad.

Wow, just stumbled accross your site whilst searching for marinas Plymouth, would just like to say what a great idea. Where do you get the money from to produce all this information? and will you at some time start charging people to use the site? Myself and Frank found it very informative, and will certainly be using it again in the future (Hopefully it will still be free!)

Have Started using Marine Engineering Looe recently for engine check ups and general repairs and would be confident in reccommending them.

New Continental Hotel by Alan And Beryl Mc
Great location, right in the centre, big spacious hotel with restaurant. Stayed here some years ago and it was getting a bit tired, returned recently and was delighted to find that it has undergone a facelift. Great improvement.

Just Be by Clair & Josh (Stilromin)
Unusual in a good way. Very quaint. Best to visit on a sunny day, but be warned, you may not want to leave in a hurry. We found it very relaxing. Food good too!

Just Be by Fran and John Derby
What a lovely place. We just sat back and relaxed. Get a table by the window and watch all the boats passing by. Very hypnotic and such a great change from all the hustle and bustle of the city.

Lovely Indian restaurant,. Can't wait to come back.

Suphas by Carly & Josh
Just trying out some of the restaurants on your guide, gotta say this is a great find. We both love Thai food, as we have travelled there extensively. This is as close to being there as it comes.

Tried contacting this company with no response. tried calling and they were rude, claiming they had nothing to do with BAL Marine. Are the numbers correct on your website??

Suphas by Roger and crew
About time there is a Thai restaurant that tastes like it does in Thailand. Suphas does just this. Bravo.

Suphas by Sarah and John Roberts
Stumbled across this place and the Hidden Olive on Harbourguides, both great places to eat. Having visited Thailand many times we find it difficult to find a restaurant that really represents the true taste of this beautiful country. Well Suphas does just this. The taste and the aroma of the food took us back thousands of miles away back to Asia.
Top class!

What a pleasant surprise! Lovely host and we really enjoyed a relaxing afternoon here.

New Continental Hotel by Peter Jackson and crew
Stayed here a few years ago, and its just brought back memories of when we were waiting to crew on a delivery yacht going to the Med. I was surprised to learn that it is actually a family run hotel. A large one. Would deffinitely stay again.

Duke of Cornwall Hotel by Lisa veleham (was Entwistle)
Got engaged here a good few years ago. came to see my uncle on his boat but decided to stay in hotel rather than his boat and met my future husband. Just stumbled across your website and it has brought back a lot of happy memories.
Think we might return for our next anniversary.

The Ship Inn by Nirvana crew
Great time in this place with great hosts, Lisa and Charly. Will return next time we sail by.

The Minerva Inn by Karen Cooke
This is a very friendly and historic pub situated about 5 minutes walk from the Barbican in Plymouth. It is only small and can get very busy at the weekend with live music. It has a friendly cosy atmosphere and there is a small rear room if you want to sit in a quieter spot.
There is a quiz on a Monday, Karaoke 1st Wednesday of the month and a jamming session on a Thursday.
My favourite is on a Sunday tea time when J D & Coke are on.

Diagnosed the engine fault within minutes and we were back out to enjoy the sea that afternoon all fixed up. Thankyou again for a quality service. Already recommended through our marina. Best of luck for the future.
