From France's smallest port (Port Racine in Saint-Germain-des-Vaux) to the most modern multipurpose ports, via deep-water ports and organised anchorages, each port of call in Manche offers an opportunity to discover the great diversity of its landscapes.
MANCHE (5,801 berths; 672 visitor berths)
6 structured marinas: Carentan (310 berths of which 50 visitor berths); Saint-Vaast-la-Hougue (704 berths of which 88 visitor berths); Port Chantereyne – Cherbourg-Octeville (1,560 berths of which 250 are reserved for stopovers); Port Diélette (sheltered harbour, 460 berths afloat of which 70 visitor berths); Barneville-Carteret - Les Îles (333 in-harbour berths + 60 visitor berths; 95 berths aground); Granville - Port de Hérel (1,000 pontoon and catway berths of which 150 are reserved for visiting boats; 197 berths aground in the outer harbour). In 2009, the port of Cherbourg-Chantereyne welcomed around 9,000 stopovers for a total of 26,000 bednights. It is one of France's most popular ports of call for pleasure boating enthusiasts. An extension project initiated by the Associated Normandy Ports will ultimately increase the port's capacity by a further 600 boats (around 400 berths afloat and 200 dry berths). Within the framework of its marina development plan, the Manche Council plans to increase the number of pleasure boating berths to 7,400 by 2015 (a 30% increase involving the ports of Granville, Barneville-Carteret and Port-bail). Anchorage/grounding harbours: Goury – Auderville (40 anchorages); Port Racine – Saint-Germain-des-Vaux (27 anchorages); Port du Hables – Omonville-la-Rogue (54 buoy anchorages and 4 visitor mooring posts); Querqueville (60 anchorages); Port des Flamands – Tourlaville (100 anchorages); Port du Becquet – Tourlaville (90 anchorages); Port Lévi – Fermanville (80 anchorages); Roubari – Gatteville lighthouse (31 anchorages); Havre de la Sinope – Quinéville (130 anchorages); Havre de la Pointe d’Agon-Coutainville (80 anchorages); Havre de Regnéville-Regnéville-sur-Mer (120 anchorages); Barfleur (130 anchorages); Port-Bail (200 anchorages)…

Marina: welcomes boats on a yearly or visitor (stopover) basis. Boats are moored alongside floating pontoons. Certain marinas are equipped with mooring zones, in other words permanent anchorage points comprising deadmen (blocks of concrete placed on the seabed and attached to a buoy by means of a chain). Anchorage port: area sheltered from the wind, located on the coastline and within which a boat can safely stop over by mooring with its anchor. Dry harbour: harbour with an insufficient water level at low tide for boats to remain afloat; they consequently rest on the seabed at low tide. Hard standing harbour: hard standing harbours are land-based facilities designed to welcome boats outside their sailing periods.
