Tides and tools
Overview





Newtown River is located off the south coast of England within the Western Solent and on the north-western shore of the Isle of Wight. This is an anchorage on the Isle of Wight’s coastline immediately off the western edge of the approach to the entrance to the Newtown River.

Situated on the coast in the Western Solent this is a tolerable anchorage in settled conditions, just out of the full run of the current. Access is straightforward in almost all states of the tide, night or day.
