Orford Quay. Delightful spot to stop overnight or just for lunch. There are a number of Visitors Mooring Buoys available on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. These are identifiable via their pink pick-up buoys, which have ‘Visitor’ printed on them. It is advisable to call the Harbour Master on 01394 459950 as you approach the moorings, to check availability. We paid £10 for the night. The moorings are exposed to strong winds from S and SE and there is a strong tidal current, especially on the ebb. It can get quite choppy, when there is wind over tide. You will need to use your tender to get ashore. The village is picturesque and has a few good pubs that serve food. Fresh fish and sea food can be purchased from a kiosk near the sailing club.
