Sands Harbor Marina

Located just minutes from the Hillsboro Inlet, Sands Harbor Marina is a popular vacation resort with 50 wet slips for vessels up to 120 feet. The close proximity to the inlet allows convenient access for fishing and diving among exotic artificial (sunken ship) reef systems. Guests can also utilize onsite fishing charters and rental services, while the beach bums in your group have easy access to the sandy white beaches of Pompano just a block away.

The Sands Harbor Marina houses a five-acre luxury hotel with spacious rooms, waterfront views and a patio bar and grill popular among guests and locals for its Rum Runners and live music on the weekends. The resort pool is open seven days a week, and shoppers can peruse local retail stores while gourmands partake in fresh seafood at either of the two waterfront restaurants.

“Cruisers from all over South Florida flock to Sands Harbor on the weekends to enjoy the great food and music,” says Berk Cekli, marina manager. “Sands Harbor Resort and Marina is full throughout the year and has a waiting list in the winter season. Our level of clientele continues to increase as the resort owners have recently invested in upgrading the entire marina infrastructure and guest areas.”

Cekli also praises the dedicated staff at Sands Harbor. “The Marina staff is second to none. All are trained and experienced cruisers.” The marina offers a full-service fuel dock, a bait and tackle shop with a variety of live bait, and a convenience store for snacks and refreshments.
