A concrete pier, now used for visitor parking, protects the east side of the man-made harbor. There is a break wall to the west. The port offers a variety of docking options, from unserviced wall locations, with first night free, to fully serviced slips available through the immaculate municipally run Cobourg Marina. The harbor is large enough to accommodate anchoring, although some silting occurs close to the western wall. One of the best beaches on the north shore lies just east of the pier. All the usual amenities sought by cruisers are within a 20-minute walk.
