We are from Victoria so Island living isn't a new experience. Staying in this lovely resort certainly was though! Right on the beach. Lots of privacy. Fully appointed suite. A real gem on our Island. Don't really want too many to know about this little treasure bt the sea 😀

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Unit # 320 at Ocean Sands Resort! The unit was right on the beach with lovely views. It was super well equipped, nicely furnished and very clean. The staff on site were very friendly and helpful. We certainly plan to return in the future if possible!
