Here are a few of our favorite day-trips from the Sunnyside Marina.
EMERALD BAY – drive about 20 miles due south of the marina and you’ll come across Emerald Bay. One of the most picturesque spots on the west shore, Emerald Bay is a great place to stop for a relaxing picnic on the boat. Fannette Island, in the middle of the bay, is beautiful landmark to float around or even hike to the top of. Remember, the bay has a speed limit of 5 mph.
SAND HARBOR – directly across the lake on the east shore, is Sand Harbor. Look for the 3 large scratches (they look like claw marks) on the mountains across the lake; Sand Harbor is on the shore directly below. Drop anchor near the boat ramp on the north side of the park and enjoy the emerald waters. This is also a great place to swim, as the water temps are usually a few degrees warmer than the rest of the lake.
