Be a Part of Pettinger Point

Have you ever taken a boardwalk stroll to Pettinger Point? The magic of the whimsical, wooden trail as it weaves through a towering canopy of old-growth forest. Massive, moss-covered trees lining the meandering path like gnarled, yet welcoming gatekeepers breathing the same intoxicating air you are. The thick salal shrubs opening up to grassy seaside flats with the pounding surf of Cox Bay to the south, Rosie Bay and Chesterman Beach to the north, and nothing but Pacific Ocean and Japan to the west.

Climb up the rocky bank and you reach the windswept precipice of spectacular that is Pettinger Point—a landmark on the edge of Pacific Sands’ west coast perch that showcases some of the most breathtaking sunsets you’ve ever seen.

Sound about right? Well, for a limited time you can purchase a part of Pettinger Point with your own personalized boardwalk plank.

Named after the Pettinger family—the visionary entrepreneurs that saw an opportunity in 1972 and created Pacific Sands Beach Resort—Pettinger Point has been the backdrop for countless moments and memories.

From generations of family reunions and celebrations of life, to proposals, weddings and innocent strolls that led to life-changing revelations, Pettinger Point was there.

But after years of back/forth wear and tear, the boardwalk needed some TLC. So we are now in the process of replacing it with beautiful, sweet smelling cedar planks.

And we decided to mark decades of memories with a personal touch—engraving names of guests who have shared special moments at Pacific Sands on individual planks. We’re 60% complete with some of our most time-honoured guests already represented.

Want to be a part of it?

<< If you/your family would like to imprint your name or a lasting memory at Pacific Sands, we’re offering the opportunity to buy a personalized plank on the boardwalk to Pettinger Point for $150—includes engraving of a name or inspirational message (up to 30 characters with spaces). >>

This is a non-profit initiative that simply covers our costs, because for us, it’s all about sharing this incredible place with you, and making your next journey along the boardwalk to Pettinger Point even more magic.
