Sunset Cove

Closed until March 2016

Sunset Cove at Lanier Islands is the hottest lakeside spot for day play and nightlife in Georgia! With its own stage for live entertainment, delicious beachfront dining options, an expansive powder white beach, regulation and recreation beach volleyball courts, and two fire pits with Adirondack chairs, you’ll never want to leave Sunset Cove! If you’re in need of beach essentials or clever keepsakes from your adventure, head over to Breezy’s Beach Shop.

Sunset Cove has quickly become a hot location on Lake Lanier!

LanierWorld Boating

Sunset Cove offers hundreds of dock slips across the 2 sets of docks along the shores of LanierWorld, Lake Lanier’s very own Lakeside Entertainment District! You can dock at Sunset Cove and be right at the hub of the party and entertainment, or just a short way down the beach, you can dock at Big Beach on our newest docks. At Big Beach, you’re only a short walk from Sunset Cove, but you are still close to the entertainment and dining options on Boardwalk. Enjoy Gianni’s Italian Bistro or the new Sunset Cantina and get a refreshing drink from Dockside Bar.
