Ryde Marina

Built from reclaimed land, the 'new' Ryde Marina is a place where the rich (or not so rich) can moor their boats when they visit Ryde. This is right on the seafront near the pier and bowling alley/ice rink and is only a few hundred metres from the local shopping streets. Just over the wall is a huge sandy beach with smooth golden white sand.

Its a nice place to visit in the summer and the beach is pretty much always packed on a hot day.

The sand building up along the side is purely due to the new harbour and I wonder how what other adverse effects these man made harbours have on the environment.
