Whitestrand pontoon dries out and can get very crowded - look out for other boats props rubbing on your pride and joy.

I'm afraid there are charges - the hut at Batson will take your money and the website has all of the details.

OK just phoned the harbour reception - very helpful indeed.

She informed me that the website prices were very confusing and the 40 odd charge is annual and daily rate is 6 odd.

Im going down Friday all day now. Had to admit 40 odd sounded V expensive!

Another option is if the tides are right you can launch the boat in the morning at Kingsbridge, be out on the water all day and take to boat out at Kingsbridge again in the evening.

You do need the tides to be right, if they arn't you only get about 2 hours either side of high tide to use the slipway in Kingsbridge.

We pulled into there on a Sunseeker when heading from Poole to Ireland last year. It was a bit un-planned, but woah, what a night! When we landed on the pontoon we met 2 familes out on a RIB who have a holiday home there. We had a chat and headed for the bar. About a zillion hours later we fell out of the bar and ran into one of the familes when attempting to make it back to the boat. They invited us in, and before we knew it, the sun was creeping up!

Great place, wish we could have stayed longer
