Sunset Cove at Lanier Islands is Open!
First we see bright red cardinals. Then, a couple of perky robins on our lawns. They’re the two immutable signs that Sunset Cove at Lanier Islands is about to open for a new season! Oh, yeah … and spring is on the way.
Saturday, March 4th was the first day of the 2017 season for fun in the sun at Sunset Cove. The dandiest sand known to man!
Don’t want to dip a toe in the water? No problem. Dine by the beach and relax until you feel the urge to splash into Lanier.
Sunset Cove Restaurant
This open-air eatery provides stunning views and lakeside breezes, as you munch char-grilled burgers and sip something cool. Absorb the suns rays and live music. You can watch your favorite team on one of the flat-screen TVs or build a sand-castle with a stranger, if you prefer.
Sunset Cove at Lanier Islands will only be open for weekends — starting at 11 AM — for the first month or so. After that … it’s summertime, summertime, sum-sum-summertime!
Yes, it’s $15 to pay for parking — including walking, jogging, bike riding or simply standing around looking all buff and adorable. No, that doesn’t include admission to Sunset Cove. Even if you pay $10-15 dollars to hit the beach, you get a $10 voucher for food. Sounds like a good deal to me — and I’m cheap!
Closing time is a bit flexible too. If it’s a beautiful day and everyone is having fun, they’re not going to kick sand in your face and yell at you to go home at 7 PM on the dang dot. They might be cranking out the fun at 8 PM or 9. Roll with it.
That’s livin’ the life at Sunset Cove.
