Vancouver Island’s Pacific Sands Beach Resort Tofino, Where Eco & Nature Meets Luxury


Next time you’re in Vancouver Island in British Columbia, check out the Pacific Sands Beach Resort, where you have authentically west coast, Tofino lodge and suite accommodation with front-row seats to nature’s greatest water park. The resort is located beach-front on spectacular Cox Bay on Vancouver Island on the edge of Pacific Rim National Park, a short scenic drive from Long Beach as well as the charming, seaside village of Tofino – famous for local culture and artisans.

Rooms have private decks where you can take in the ocean air and fully equipped kitchens should you decide to cook in. There’s also a variety of restaurants within walking distance as well.

They tout themselves as eco-friendly and are inspired by and committed to sustainable practices that preserve the delicate balance of nearby resources.

From a geo-exchange system to using wood killed by pine beetle infestation for building materials to our participation in the Clean the World program, eco-friendly is an understatement here.

They even take recharging to new levels with a new Electric Car Charging Station.

Beyond low-flush toilets, every tree, every material is evaluated in all resort decision-making and development based on a crystal clear, environmental mandate to set an example for responsible tourism.

Pacific Sands has been awarded a 4 out of 5 Key rating for excellence in environmental and social responsibility in all operational areas in the Green Key Eco-Rating Program.

From fully-equipped, family-friendly kitchens to cozy fireplaces, relaxing hot tubs, and social BBQ areas, they offer rooms with jaw-dropping, panoramic views steps from the surf.

Rooms range from 520 to 1,400 square feet and have fireplaces are available.
