visiting brighton marina © copyright 2013
A few years back when the marina was built, only a few flats, houses, a pub or two and a couple of restaurants existed, but now, the marina has grown into a sizeable waterside residential area with many facilities, being a marina, there are leisure, sailing, working fishing boats and, some sightseeing boats that can take you on fishing trips and tours around the marina.
The marina has shops, restaurants, supermarket, a petrol station plus entertainment in the form of a cinema, ten pin bowling, casino plus more entertainment during the year, and if you want to keep fit, there is a fitness centre here too.
Want to stay here, then, the marina also has a hotel called The Seattle which overlooks the harbour and is conveniently located to everything you may wish to do during the day or evening.
The marina definitely has that chill out feeling, nothing rushed, especially noticeable in those hot summer months while sitting outside the restaurants, eating, having a relaxing drink and watching the world go by.
Close by to Brighton marina is a pebble beach, the undercliff walk and cycle path, (always be aware of pedestrians), it is flat passing Rottingdean and, finally reaching the end of the path at Saltdean, great for any exercise or just as a relaxing walk along the coast with the family, well worth a visit, and is located near the entrance to the sea wall. Fishermen fish on the wall, and, it is also possible to walk on the wall weather permitting (it does not go all the way round), getting great views of the sea, the marina, and, on a good day you are able to see Brighton Pier and beyond, possibly as far as Worthing.
Not far from the marina is Brighton, which has a large shopping centre, many unique shops, a beach, the pier, plus further fun and entertainment, it is possible to walk and cycle to Brighton, but, if you are not feeling too energetic, you can get a taxi or catch a bus from the marina into town.
