About Newport (Isle of Wight)Located at the heart of the Isle of Wight, Newport Harbour is reached by a safe, easily navigable channel. At the furthest navigable reach of the Medina river, Newport was a market town with a busy port until the mid nineteenth century.
Newport is situated 4km up the River Medina from its estuary at Cowes. The ancient port has excellent modern facilities for yachtsmen. Visitors' pontoons have water and electricity available. On the quayside are toilets and showers. There is also a plentiful supply of dry berths for winter storage.
Occasional cargoes of shingle are also handled at Blackhouse Quay, although it is understood that there is a possibility that this operation will be transferred to Stag Lane, in Cowes, in the near future.
