That’s why we’ve put together a list of the top five family-friendly resorts in Port Macquarie. As a beautiful town with tons to do, our fair town is quickly becoming the spot to enjoy beachside environments.
1. Sails Port Macquarie
Classic and modern. Luxurious and sparse. Value without sparing the best. Sails Port Macquarie, a 4.5-star resort with plenty of waterfront exposure, takes the cake.
Ample outdoor seating and attractively-designed interiors makes Sails a feast for the eyes. Awash in white, the clean aesthetic of Sails’ facilities and grounds will leave an image that lingers in the mind in memories for years to come.
