Events in the Marina:
There’s a real spirit and sense of community at Breakwater Marina. Many long term tenants visited years ago and simply decided to stay. An annual social and events calendar brings people together regularly. Musical jam sessions share the unseen talents of floating residents, whilst BBQ’s and the big screen TV are dragged out to celebrate various competitions on the sporting calendar.
An indoor games room has been created to offer Marina customers an all-weather respite from their boats it’s a social place to catch-up or chill out and by all means feel free to connect to the Marina’s free Wifi. A free communal BBQ Area with adjacent herb gardens is available anytime you need to catch up with friends.
