Exploring the night sky at Aquavista

Exploring the night sky at Aquavista

Our Waterside & Marina locations are not only ideal locations to get close to nature and enjoy tranquillity – but they are often also great spots to explore the night sky.

So, if you enjoy standing on deck in the moonlight and watching the stars twinkle, listening to the silence that surrounds you, an Aquavista marina might be the perfect spot for you.

So whether you’re a passionate stargazer or just someone that appreciates the blissfulness of day fading to night, take a look to see where your closest dark sky discovery site is – you may be surprised by how many are on your doorstep!
