Chapman's Pool

Tides and tools
Overview





Chapman’s Pool is a small horseshoe shaped bay located a mile north by north-west of Saint Alban’s Head on the south coast of England. When settled conditions are accompanied by offshore winds it offers a remote anchorage in a magnificent natural setting.

The small cove offers a tolerable anchorage in winds from north and east. It is, however, subject to any swell from the south-east around to south-west to which it is entirely exposed. Daylight access is straightforward.
