Last year, the Garden Bay Hotel, Pub and Marina was sold. The old docks have been cleaned up and the pub’s food is still good. Dining out on the deck overlooking the harbor on a sunny day is a part of its allure.
Fisherman’s Resort and Marina was sold to a new owner from Vancouver and continues to operate as it has in the past.
Sunshine Coast Resort Marina also has new owners. Prior owner Ralph Linnmann, known for his service and hospitality, is still managing the property.
Two new restaurants are within walking distance of the Madeira Park dock. One is a sushi bar and Japanese restaurant called Mama’s Japanese Kitchen and the other is Emelle’s Madeira Kitchen. We haven’t tried them yet, but they’ve received high marks from locals.
