Boating & Fishing Recreation


Shingley Beach Resort is one of the closest Accommodation Houses to Abel Point Marina. Situated on the banks of Abel Point Marina and Shingley Beach it’s less than a five minute stroll to the departure point for an amazing selection of boat trips that leave daily for the Islands and the Reef.

BOAT RAMPS: Five minutes from either Abel Point Marina double Boat Ramp or the double boat Ramp at the VMR in Altmann Ave Cannonvale.

We have off street parking for Boats & Trailers, an easily accessible Boat Wash Bay.

Marina Berths: We can arrange for you to have your boat moored in one of the Marina berths, no pulling it out every day, come back tie up and chill out, relaxing on your balcony overlooking your prized possession. 

Sailing & Bare Boat Charters: The Resort's convenient location is a popular choice when chartering a boat for a sailing experience that no other destination in the world can offer.

We can arrange a Marina Berth for your Yacht or Catamaran while staying at the resort.

Airlie Beach Race Week : Annually held in the second week of August from the Abel Point Marina. Categories exist for yachts, Mutli-Hulls and Sports racing boats. What better place to house your crew during race week only a stone’s throw from all the hype and activity.

Fishing :

Shingley Beach is a tidal beach and a favorite fishing spot, with mackerel, coral trout, whiting, barramundi and cod all commonly caught. Either fishing of the beach, along the Marina Breakwater or along parts of the Waterfront Boardwalk. There are a number of Charter Fishing Tours we can arrange all leaving from your door step.

Why not hire a boat for a day, whether for fishing or go for a day sail from Abel Point Marina right on our doorstep.

The Queensland Whitsunday’s is the perfect location for the family to holiday, relax and unwind. Airlie Beach is the gateway to the travel destination of the Whitsunday Islands and the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.
