Rock Sand Resort
Agoda Rating – 7.8/10

Everywhere you read about claims to be unique. Rock Sand Resort, however is a unique place to visit and stay. It perches on top of the one rocky outcrop that divides White Sand Beach into its busy Southern and quiet Northern sections. So, as you’d imagine, the views are great. There is no road access either so you need to walk about 400 metres down the beach to get there. All of this means peace and quiet.
The rooms at Rock Sand Resort all perch on the hillside and so they all have great views out to sea. The rooms range in style from simple bungalows with fan and shower to bigger air-conditioned family suites so there’s a range of comfort to suit nearly everyone.
