Experience the Coast like a Local  > Sunshine Coast Tourist Guide

We traveled to the Sunshine Coast for a family vacation, and this resort was exactly what we wanted. The views are fantastic, especially at sunset, since it overlooked the harbor directly. In addition, there are a number of crab traps the resort has for guest use at the end of the dock, and they even provide a large pot for boiling the crabs upon request. We rented one of the boats from the hotel and took it to go fishing for a few hours, and the owner helped us set up the rods (available for rent) and gave us very straightforward instructions on where to go and how to drive the boat and how to fish. Would have loved to stay another few days since the area is so beautiful.” » read more reviews on Trip Advisor
