You just drop your anchor as far as I'm aware. The bottom is sand.

We usually choose the most friendly looking buoy. Last time we chose one marked "Do Not Moor Here" as it seemed like the best choice!

Yeah the pier is also similarly marked and we've moored alongside there a number of times as well. No one seems to mind unless you moor up at the point where the fee-paying pleasure boats come alongside

There's a really good fish'n'chip shop on the seafront.It's a tiny little shop to the right of the pier as you come into land. The owner owns the boat the fish is caught from.

A water taxi runs in the summer at the town end of the bay, i can dig the number out if you want,or why not try the top end of the bay away from the town.It is less busy ,water is crystal clear at the moment, great for swimming , water skiing e.t.c. and you can have a bbq ashore.

Well just a bit further round the coast there is Shell Bay fish restaurant as mentioned here a few weeks ago.

Cold beer in Poole

Food there is bl**dy good and you can drop anchor right outside

With a fair amount of kelp as I recall
