Resort is located on Cox Bay where the surf is consistent. Do the walk to Pettinger point at sunset to get amazing photos. I preferred to get coffee at the front desk and newspaper in the morning, then sit on patio looking at the ocean.

Rented a two bedroom beach house with another couple. Beautiful accomodations, fully equipped kitchen, living room and deck on the beach downstairs, master bedroom with elevated tub and deck and bathroom upstairs as well as second bedroom with ensuite (no view). Master bath is way to shallow to have a comfortable bath unless you are kid size though. Service great...

We stayed in a one bedroom lighthouse suite which was very nice. All rooms are small but very comfy for two people. The location of the resort is right on the beach which is great for surfing or just watching and listening to the surf. Very comfortable bed with quality bedding. I had requested a 2nd floor unit and was...

Once again,our yearly girls get together at Pacific Sands was stellar! After walking the beach, bike riding and kayaking it was great to relax in our deluxe two bedroom condo, slip into those comfy complimentary house coats and chat for hours on end. The unit was impeccable and kudos to the housekeeping staff who did a great job tiding up...

We just spent 4 nights at Pacific Sands which is always a highlight for us as a family. To be able to come to Long Beach and enjoy the natural beauty, the waves is always a pleasure. The accommodations at Pacific Sands are first class, we stay at the Beach House which is perfect for our family needs.

We have stayed here many times over the years and yet, it is always perfect. Super-clean. Amazing staff and you can't beat the location. Amazing beach. A favourite for sure. If you are looking for a truly relaxing get-away, this is the place. You can either eat out in town, or go buy groceries and cook your meal inside, looking...
