The figure-of-eight route shown in red on the map can be undertaken on foot and is also suitable for pushchairs (in the dry, summer months). The route is generally unsuitable for wheelchairs, due to bumpy terrain and a narrow bridge part-way along the path which runs adjacent to the Chichester Chanel. At low tide, it is possible to walk along the shoreline. This can only be undertaken on foot, due to the pebbly beach.


The route shown in blue on the map is surfaced and is suitable for bikes and pushchairs. It may also be a better option during the wet winter months, when parts of the red route can become muddy.


There is a gift shop selling ice-creams at the marina, as well as a popular cafe with indoor and outdoor seating. The pub at Dell Quay can get very busy. On sunny days we advise getting there early to grab a table overlooking the quay.


NB: There are no public toilets at the Marina. The toilets in the Boathouse Cafe are for patrons only.
