We are delighted that the judges voted for our marina over the other nominees. The marina has provided not only a new, full service facility for yachtsmen to both base their boats long term and to visitors of the area, but also a new destination for visitors who enjoy the shoreside offering. With the superb choice in shops, bars, and restaurants along with our events calendar, a good time is guaranteed. Our occupancy rates continue to rise as we keep improving the marina and facilities, with most recently, the extension of our breakwater that provides increased comfort.”
