Fresh water is available at Normandy Pontoon and Batson Quay. 


During June, July and August fresh water is available to visiting yachtsmen on the Visitors’ Pontoon in the Bag between 1000 & 1100 daily - harbour staff operate this service via a water barge pressurising the hose reels on the pontoon deck when they are in attendance.


There are two Harbour Authority showers for visiting yachtsmen at Whitestrand, please refer to signage on the doors regarding usage, pin code printed on your receipt.  Alternatively, Salcombe Yacht Club is happy for visiting yachtsmen to use their showers at the Yacht Club situated at Cliff House (Yacht Club Facilities currently closed).


We request that all Harbour users recycle as much or their waste as possible.  Recycling points are located afloat opposite Normandy Pontoon and on the Visitors’ Pontoon in the Bag.  All afloat refuse facilities are for waterborne waste only, anyone dumping waste from properties ashore will be fined.  Shore reception facilities are at Batson adjacent to the Car and Boat Parks.


We separate our waste for recycling:

  • Glass bottles and jars

  • Plastic and cans

  • Paper and cardboard

  • General waste for landfill

  • Waste oil, batteries and clothes shoreside at Batson


Commercial Refuse

Please contact the Harbour Office if you have commercial waste to dispose of.

International Catering Waste

We are required to enforce the rules on handling International Catering Waste landed in the UK.

International Catering Waste (ICW) is any food waste landed from vessels that have operated outside the EU.

If since being in your charge the vessel has travelled outside the EU, you need to speak to a member of the harbour staff on arrival and will need to complete a declaration regarding ICW.
