What's the score with the boats, do you put them in the harbour & make your way to the campsite or is there mooring in the bay by the campsite? Questions questions😄

Just looked at the chart, it's only 1/2nm from Braye to Saye. Do you drop the gear off in Saye & take the boats around to Braye?

Dave last year, and planning the same tomorrow is boats into braye harbour - land gear ashore, boats onto visitor moorings.
Into supermarket (beer) by harbour then taxi with everything to campsite.

Yes but you have to check in at the harbour masters office first where you'll get a form to fill in and then pop it in the post box. Then you can either get a taxi (sometimes the locals give us a lift) or take your rib to Saye beach to drop your stuff off. I think if you land on the beach first you might be breaking a law?

The only other law I can think of is you can only camp at the campsite and nowhere else on the island. However the Alderney State has invested loads into the campsite with log cabin shower blocks & caffe etc

The atmosphere is absolutely awesome, especially next weekend

When you come into Braye harbour follow the breakwater along to the visitors buoys, a water taxi takes you to the pontoon

If you come we'll meet you on the beach and carry your stuff over the sand dune to the campsite, so you don't have to beach the craft
