Ocean Sands is conveniently located within walking distance to many attractions and great restaurants. Be sure to stop by the in house restaurant Johnny Manannas and check out the amazing tequila menu.

Every room in the place has a ocean view, stay in the tower and get up as high as possible if you can and you can watch the beach day and night from a birds eye view....
