Beautiful Honfleur, but packed with people ashore on a Wednesday evening in August – photos by Colin Le Conte 2016

A beautiful old inner marina looks amazing and at the end of August 2016 was not too busy.

It would appear the inner harbour can get very busy based on this marinas.com… photo

The inner marina is a magnet for visitors and was crowded with people on the busy market Wednesday evening.

If you want a quieter area, then you can moor on the outer pontoon which is closer to the lock gate.

Navigation

The approaches to Honfleur is not covered in this page, other than you need to pass through outer lock gates to enter the port. These may be open for free flow or closed for lock access. The outer pontoon is then accessed easily, whereas the inner old harbour has a swing bridge which only opens occasionally.

Tie points float up and down in the lock – good idea

The marina office is near the old harbour and the facilities are near the outer pontoon.

The public facilities next door were good so the marina facilities should be of a similar standard
