The mid-island location on Hwy. 278 makes Shelter Cove one of the busiest communities on the island for shopping, fine restaurants, and live entertainment.
Shelter Cover Harbour features a 15.5-acre marina with 170 slips for boats up to 135 feet in length. A leisurely stroll along the waterfront is a must for viewing the assortment of magnificent yachts. Enjoy a plethora of water sports at the marina, from deep-sea and inshore fishing charters to sport crabbing, sail and power boat rentals, sightseeing and nature excursions and dinner cruises.
Shop for the latest fashions, souvenirs and unique gifts in the boutiques at Shelter Cove Harbour. The Mall at Shelter Cove and Shelter Cove Plaza are also popular shopping destinations. Natural parks with dock access to the water are integral features of this unique area as well.
On Tuesday nights during the summer, head for the harbour and join the crowd for the fun of HarbourFest. This weekly celebration features food, arts and crafts, live music and a fantastic fireworks display, with reflections shimmering on the water. The Shannon Tanner show onstage at the gazebo is fun entertainment for both children and adults.
