The Accommodations

Pacific Sands Beach Resort offers deluxe beachfront accommodation on beautiful Cox Bay in Tofino. The resort is great for couples looking for a romantic retreat, as well as families looking for a beach getaway.

Located on beautiful Cox Bay Beach, the accommodations at this resort give you front row seating to some of the most spectacular West Coast ocean views. The resort offers suites and beach houses, as well as a 4-bedroom private home.

All of their units come with a fireplace and a fully equipped kitchen. If for some reason you feel you are missing a gourmet pantry item, guest services will most likely have it, and they are just a phone call away.

Splurge Worthy

If you can swing it, stay in a Signature Suite for the private hot-tub looking out over the spectacular view! This is the ultimate beachfront accommodation.

Pet Friendly

The resort is definitely dog friendly and has a few pet designated suites. When you register your pet, they’ll be provided with dog dishes, treats, and a pet towel upon arrival. The resort also offers pet wash stations (for after that sandy beach run), as well as waste bags and disposable containers.

Where to Eat

Although Pacific Sands doesn’t have an indoor restaurant, they do have a Surfside Grill. Enjoy fresh local seafood, along with classic beach food (fish and chips, burgers, tacos, etc.) for lunch and dinner each day until 7:00 pm.

 If you are there during the winter months, it’s the perfect comfort food for curling up by the fire and watching the storms roll into Cox Bay from the privacy of your room. For the warmer months, there’s an outdoor seating area for you to enjoy.

Need coffee? Coffee is supplied in each room, if you’re looking for something a little more gourmet, you’ll find ‘Beans on the Beach Espresso Bar‘ at Guest Services. Enjoy your speciality coffee, tea or hot chocolate curled up on one of the comfy couches, or take it to go.

If you’d like to utilize that fully-equipped kitchen, the front desk carries a wide variety of grocery items. You’ll find everything from the basics (bread, milk, bacon, and eggs) to ready-made favourites, such as pizza, burritos, ice cream, and waffles.

And let’s not forget…Pacific Sands Resort is ideally located, and only a short 5-minute drive from the town of Tofino where you’ll find grocery stores, liquor stores, and many delicious and unique restaurants.
