Testimonial

After staying in various marinas along the coast, the Soldiers Point Marina is by far the best value for money, has the most friendly and supportive staff and presents the most breath taking sunsets to set off the end of each perfect day
Throughout the summer months, each occupant of the marina is greated with free morning coffees and daily papers and free cocktails to enjoy at the end each afternoon 
Boasting beautifully maintained bathrooms and surrounded by restaurants hugging the Marina's edge, this Marina has so much to offer that nearby other marinas are left wanting in every instance. 
Becoming a "resident" of the marina is to be welcomed into a large family where everyone's needs are seen to seemingly immediately with no fuss or bother. Whether it's coffee and lunch from the floating cafe or drifting slowly away from the berth into the pristine waters of the bay, Soldiers Point Marina presents every feature, benefit and peace of mind that anyone could ever want from this first class facility of this standard.
