Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Oh! That View!

As soon as you walk into Anchor Bar you are instantly struck by the most majestic sea views that open out before you like a picture-perfect postcard right before your eyes.

Renowned for being the ‘retreat from the street’, Anchor Bar is tucked away, a few minutes’ walk up the hill from the main street of Airlie Beach, at the Terraces Resort.

Prior to becoming Anchor Bar, the venue was known as Terraces and very much a part of the resort complex.

It was a proud moment for Josh and Leah when Anchor Bar became famous in its own right, known as the ‘secret gem’ with the stunning views that you ‘simply must visit while you’re in town’.

The view is made even more spectacular by the scenic swimming-pool that sits at the centre.

Guests who are dining at Anchor Bar are welcome to sign-in and will receive a fob key that allows them full use of the swimming-pool.

This means that a lunch-time catch-up can easily lead into an afternoon session by the pool and locals only need to walk up the hill to feel like they are having a holiday in their own town.

All seating at Anchor Bar is styled around the view and every table has stunning vistas out to the Coral Sea.

In the winter months guests can watch whales as they breach in the baby, often with their calves in tow.

Frequently, cruise ships can also been seen from this serene aspect atop the hill.

With a casual beach atmosphere and the feeling you are on a permanent holiday, Anchor Bar transports you to a time where your cares are distant memories and your pleasure receptors are on fire.
