Recreation in our Harbours

Langstone and Chichester Harbours are hugely popular areas for marine-based recreational activities. There are several sailing clubs and activity centres based around the harbours that offer opportunities to sail, foil, windsurf, paddleboard, canoe and much more. The harbours act as a relatively safe and controlled zone for young sailors and water sports enthusiasts to learn new skills, and are a hotspot for wild swimming clubs and individuals. The area is also incredibly popular for recreational fishing, bird watching and walking.

The two harbours span one of the busiest areas in Europe for recreational water-based activities, with an enormous number of local people and visitors enjoying all that these rich marine environments have to offer every year.

The harbours are also an important site for wildlife – find out more here.
