Gateway to the Whitsundays and Great Barrier Reef

Coral Sea Marina Resort, located on the beautiful tropical coast of Queensland, is the gateway to Airlie Beach, the Whitsunday Islands and the world-renowned Great Barrier Reef.

Formerly known as Abell Point Marina, on 1 July 2019 the marina merged with iconic Whitsunday hotel, the Coral Sea Resort, and rebranded to become Coral Sea Marina Resort. The merger marks the beginning of a new era for the marina and with the addition of a 77 room hotel, the Coral Sea Marina Resort will become a premier Australian tourism destination.

With impeccable facilities, an outstanding team of professionals and direct access to unparalleled cruising grounds, Coral Sea Marina Resort has gained the well-earned reputation of being the ideal destination to stay, play and explore the natural wonders of Australia.

Coral Sea Marina Resort was awarded the first 5 Gold Anchor Global Accreditation in the world in 2016, providing benchmark standards for the international marina industry in terms of customer service, innovation and first-class marina facilities. In 2019, Coral Sea Marina Resort was awarded Marina of the Year 2019/2020, as well as Major Tourism Attraction at the Queensland Tourism Awards and Superyacht Business Service Provider of the Year in 2018 and 2017 respectively. All three accolades are testament to the quality experience you can expect when visiting Coral Sea Marina Resort.

We go the extra nautical mile

Located a short walk from the tourism town of Airlie Beach, Coral Sea Marina Resort has a vibrant marina village, 77 hotel rooms, 520 wet berths, a range of premium shore-based facilities and a passionate team focused on turning your visit into the ultimate holiday experience.

It would be our pleasure to welcome you as a guest here at Coral Sea Marina Resort.

    Went to Abell Point for fuel and while booking a slot, asked Amy who took my call, where in Airlie I could get a few A4 info pages printed and laminated. Not only did she offer to do them for me but was at dockside when I arrived to personally deliver them....with blue tack...with compliments. Great service above and beyond expectations!

    Thank you so much for all your fast, ready updates & all your information regarding our week of TC Iris movements, it’s very appreciated.  I have to commend your Security for letting me know of Island Explorer’s movements, especially as the wind was just picking up.  This gave my staff ample time to get the vessel properly secured.
