A small residential area that lies north of the Gulf Point Marina is often referred to as being a part of Outer Harbour (though it still lies within the boundaries of North Haven).
The suburb is served by a primary school, North Haven Primary School, and the local high school is Ocean-View High School, in nearby Taperoo. The western coastal side of the suburb is also graced by a newly constructed Surf Lifesaving Club (completed in 2007), and the Gulf Pt Marina which is home to a large sailing community. The marina, lined with exclusive and desirable houses, is protected by two artificial breakwaters. Attached to the marina is the Cruising Yacht Club of South Australia, one of Adelaide's largest yacht clubs, whilst around the entrance to the Port River lies the Royal South Australian Yacht Squadren. There is a retirement village on Lady Gowrie Road, and there is a small shopping centre on Osborne Road.
The local cricket club is the North Haven Cricket Club which fields numerous teams in Adelaide and Suburban Cricket Association.
The 330 bus services both Lady Gowrie & Osborne Roads and Osborne and Victoria Roads. The Outer Harbor railway line terminates at Outer Harbor railway station, which is actually in North Haven. The suburb is serviced by two more train stations, North Haven railway station and Osborne railway station.
