We love coming to Sanctuary Cove and it feels like a great escape from the crowds. So many lovely shops and restaurants and something for all tastes. The views are to die for and the boats are amazing too.

Iconic Sanctuary Cove. Thank you Christopher Skase for coming up with this idea all those years ago. Golf, convention centre, hotel resort, marina and canal ways, all at your beck and call. Definitely worth a visit.
