ONE DAY IS NEVER ENOUGH
BOATING UP THE COOMERA RIVER AND INTO SANCTUARY COVE’S MARINA, YOU’RE LIKELY TO FEEL LIKE YOU NEVER WANT TO LEAVE. THE BEST PART IS, YOU DON’T HAVE TO.
Whether you’re planning on staying for a day or a week, there are so many things to do at Sanctuary Cove that you’ll be hard-pressed trying to squeeze them all in. Fancy a spot of shopping down Masthead Way? A bite to eat along the waterfront, or some time on the green at one of two internationally acclaimed golf courses? From eating and dining in The Marine Village to recreational activities on the luscious greens, Sanctuary Cove is jam-packed with options – it’s almost overwhelming.
The Sanctuary Cove crew suggests arriving by boat (with more than 200 moorings, you’re sure to get a park) and then exploring the area on foot. Dining options abound with everything
from quirky cafes to Thai food and sushi and, of course, exquisite seafood at George’s Paragon. Plus, the shopping is to die for.
Susie Mcdonald, who owns both the Sanctuary Resort Shoppe and Calypso Resort & Swimwear and has been in the area for almost 30 years, says the laidback vibes and friendly faces are just unbeatable.
“There’s no noise and everyone is either a local or on holidays, so it’s very relaxed – it’s worlds away from a busy shopping centre,” Susie says.
You can pop in and check out the luxe labels at EEV Fashion and treat yourself to a new Camilla kaftan or Holster staple. From classic denim and unique homewares, to quirky gifts and delectable treats, the shopaholics among us will probably spend days in the stores alone.
It’s hardly surprising that many call this waterside paradise home. If you’re keen to fully immerse yourself in all that Sanctuary Cove has to offer, check out (or check-in to) the Intercontinental Sanctuary Cove Resort or make yourself at home in one of the comfortable holiday homes.
