Brixham is situated at the southern end of sheltered Torbay, in the lee of Berry Head. It is a picturesque old Devon fishing harbour with easy 24 hour access and boasts one of the largest fishing fleets in the UK coupled with a thriving fish market. It is hardly surprising, therefore, that seafood is a speciality of the many restaurants in Brixham. The harbour area is very much the focus of this popular cruising destination and here you will find a replica of Drake’s Golden Hind as well as many unique shops and watering holes clustered around it.
Brixham Marina is in the heart of the town and offers safe access in all weathers and at all states of tide. As well as 485 fully serviced berths, fuel and basic provisions are also available along with a bar and restaurant on site.
Brixham Yacht Club has a visitors’ pontoon with moorings available on a first come, first served basis for vessels up to 12m LOA. Pay the bosun or at the bar. There is also a summer shuttle service to and from the moorings.
Brixham Harbour also offers small craft moorings for vessels up to 30m LOA each side of the fairway and a Town Pontoon. Call on VHF Ch 14 before entering the harbour for availability and berthing instructions.
It is also possible to anchor north west of the fairway or in Fishcombe and Elberry Coves, west of the harbour.
