Keyhaven is a small fishing harbour situated just to the east of Milford on Sea and about three miles west of Lymington. The harbour offers well protected moorings with a small quay and a good slipway, usable at most states of tide. The harbour, although very quite at times, becomes very busy on summer weekends and bank holidays due to it's popularity with dingy sailors and holidaymakers. Several charter and commercial fishing boats operate from Keyhaven which offers easy access to the fishing grounds of Christchurch Bay the Needles and within the Solent.

Pickup Point

A high tides, pickups are normally arranged from the Quay itself which can be accessed easily from the main car park. At low tides the pickup point will be from the landing stage which can be reached by turning right at the quay and walking along the harbour wall. The landing stage will be found on the corner, just beyond the Hurst Ferry stage.

Directions: From the M27 junction 1 take the A337 for Lymington. On arrival in Lymington, stay on the A337 and follow the signs for Christchurch. Two miles beyond Lymington, at Everton village, turn left onto the B3058 for Milford. At Milford, turn left down the side of the village green, then left again into Keyhaven Road. Follow the road for about a mile into Keyhaven. The car park will be found on the left, opposite 'The Gunn' public house.

Car parking charges are about £5 for the day and a toilet block is situated in the car park. Keyhaven's only pub, The Gunn, offers real ales, good food and an excellent atmosphere.
