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.
