Set on 45 marvelous acres along Cox Bay, this resort offers a range of lodge rooms, waterfront suites, and beach villas with full kitchens, fireplaces, and private decks. The bay is a magnet for surfers, and the adjacent forest is a nature-lover's paradise. There's no on-site dining, but a convenience store in the lobby sells emergency rations such as pizza, ice cream, milk, and eggs. The Long Beach Lodge restaurant is a five-minute walk down the beach. There's the obligatory
rain gear for storm watching and walking. The front desk staff will help organize eco-adventure outings.
