Chalkdock Point

Tides and tools
Overview





Chalkdock Point is a headland within Chichester Harbour, which is situated on the south coast of England. It offers a secluded anchorage downstream of Itchenor that can be considered the administrative centre of the harbour.

Set within the estuaries’ channels it offers good protection in most conditions. However it is exposed to a large body of water from the west where in strong winds it becomes uncomfortable. Chichester Harbour's channels are well marked making access straightforward in most conditions, day or night and at most stages of the tide.
