Ferry Point is at the westernmost tip of Hayling Island in Hampshire, England, overlooking the fast tides of Langstone Harbour entrance. The Langstone Harbour Master has his base here.

There is a small cluster of houses and a pub, the "Ferry Boat Inn" (originally the Duke of Norfolk), and a passenger ferry to Eastney in Portsmouth. Hayling Island golf course backs on to the point and the Kench (a small bay) lies just eastward. A single lane leads east toward Sinah and the rest of the island. There are good views north to Portsdown Hill and Butser Hill.
