Experience What Makes Pacific Sands Beach Resort Extraordinary

Located beachfront in spectacular Cox Bay on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Pacific Sands Beach Resort has been the Tofino accommodation of choice for returning families, couples, and outdoor enthusiasts for decades.

TripAdvisor agrees, consistently rating Pacific Sands Beach Resort one of the top hotels in Tofino. We love the accolades, but in addition to the world-renowned destination of Tofino, we believe it’s the Pacific Sands experience that keeps our guests coming back. Maybe it’s our make-yourself-at-home philosophy around onsite resort services and authentic, west coast hospitality. Or the we-think-of-everything extras like our approach to pets, the environment, and onsite wellness services.
