About Falmouth Marina
Falmouth Harbour is one the largest natural deep-water harbours in the world, offering shelter in any weather, with creeks to discover and glorious Cornish countryside to explore. Falmouth Marina, Cornwall, is located on the south side of Penryn River – the first creek on the west side of the Fal Estuary. The South Coast marina is divided in two by a cill which dries to 1.8m above chart datum. However, there is 2m depth either side of the sill so there is plenty of water.
Once onshore, Falmouth Marina offers Premier Marinas berth holders first-class facilities, including a welcoming bar/restaurant (UpperDeck) serving great food. You will find award winning facilities, including luxury toilets and showers as part of Premier's ongoing investment programme, alongside a chandlery, a brokerage and even a hairdressers onsite. These facilities, along with the marina’s stunning natural setting and its fully serviced boatyard, make Falmouth an outstanding marina and a worthy recipient of The Yacht Harbour Association’s Four Gold Anchors award.
Beyond the South Coast marina, south-west Cornwall offers plenty of things to see and do including wildlife spotting and fantastic coastal walks to beautiful beaches.
Falmouth town is also about a 15 minute walk away along a Victorian harbour front. Here, Falmouth’s steep high street is flourishing with interesting local shops, salty pubs and restaurants and, at Discovery Quay, you’ll find the award-winning National Maritime Museum that charts Cornwall’s rich maritime heritage.
If you prefer to explore on the water, The Fal Estuary provides wonderful, protected cruising for boaters. On a spring tide or with a bilge-keeler, the river is navigable as far up as the old port of Truro. South west of Falmouth is the Helford River, considered one of Britain’s most beautiful cruising grounds with plenty of anchorages and visitor moorings. And just a day’s sail away from the marina are Fowey, Plymouth, Salcombe and Dartmouth. For the adventurous, Falmouth Marina makes a great start point for The Channel Islands 100 miles east, Brittany 140 miles south-east and, if you are heading around Land’s End for Ireland or Wales, Falmouth Marina also makes a great stopover point.
