Barfleur

Hi,

Does anyone know what the LOW tide mooring is like at Barfleur on the Cherbourg peninsula? There seems to be a beach just to the North. Can one anchor there for lunch at low tide.... or is there a bit of harbour still with water in it? Neapish tides!

Thanks

Mike C

Hi Mike
We were in Barfleur last year, April...albeit by car, but I had a good look around. I would suggest you pass the massive light-house to starboard, about 2 nm North from Barfleur enroute from Alderney, and actually proceed into the little harbour. You can chuck the pick in just past the pier-head (does not dry out)on the right and have your lunch etc.

Here's a picture.....
