Great spot to visit especially if you haven’t chosen your tours - all the companies in one spot. Some cute little markets, an ice creamery and a pub! All your needs in one spot! Stunning views of the boats and water.

Returned to the Marina when we discovered that the market was finishing up for the day. Headed into Lure Restaurant where we enjoyed lunch and then set out to explore. Had a cursory look at the boats at the marina and then headed to browse the shops. SHOPS? Most were closed, a few souvenir/gift shops open with members from our tour group purchasing souvenirs. A number of tour operator establishments were open but, other than the restaurants the entire area was devoid of atmosphere or activity. Great views over the marina from the boardwalk.

Thanks for taking the time to review our marina, Dan. Our marina mall is currently awaiting redevelopment however Crystalbrook Collection remains fully committed to the revitalisation and enhanced marina experience - watch this space! We are glad you were able to enjoy a delicious meal at Lure.

Great place to stop for a drink and food but don’t expect much from the shops - Most of them are vacant. It’s a shame because this is a nice location beside the marina, not many super yachts mainly commercial tour boats.
We really enjoyed Hemingways Brewery for lunch the food was good pub fayre but the beer is exceptional. There are great views over the marina from the outside seats and the service was good but you do have to order at the food station.

We're glad you were able to enjoy a delicious meal at Hemingways and got a chance to head out on one of the unique reef, sailing or Daintree experiences on offer from our numerous Tour Operators, departing daily from Crystalbrook Superyacht Marina. Sorry you missed the Superyacht season - they tend to head south for cyclone season but will be back from Easter time next year.

The Marina is lovely, a short walk from Macrossan Street, with views over the water of all the yachts and other amazing boats moored there. We kept going back to Hemingway's Brewery, we loved it, such a relaxed vibe, good food and drinks and great service. I can recommend the Gin Paddle!

We enjoyed the Marina. If you go on a Wednesday the market is there. Choo Choos is great for coffee and many of the tour boats leave from there.

This is a lovely marina but in the 10 years since our last visit all the shops are closed (except one) probably due to Covid, it is a shame as it has a nice atmosphere and this was missing due to the vacancies. Hopefully when we go back aga8n the place will be buzzing,

We found a $50 million yacht. The Marina and surrounds are lovely. Shops to browse. Have a beer or a meal. Wander around and look at the amazing boats.

Largely vacant with only a few restaurants and the Marina to visit. The brewery was doing a great trade.

Short walk away from our accommodation at Port Douglas Apartments. Great place to have lunch overlooking the Marina. Some good shopping if you are looking for reef wear or swimwear.

The only purpose for this place is to catch tours. Otherwise it's a vast empty space, with a couple of souvenir shops. Desperately need improvement and development!
