Meet the Sandspit Community Society
The Sandspit Inn has been providing quality, clean and comfortable accommodations on Moresby Island for more than two decades and has long been the heart of the community’s social life. Its ownership was taken over by the Sandspit Community Society in 2014. The non-profit group is dedicated to promoting economic growth and stability in Sandspit and the surrounding region, particularly through encouraging tourism. As tourism advocates and supporters, the purchase of a business like the Sandspit Inn which provides such an essential service to the island made economic and philosophical sense. Profits generated by the Sandspit Inn are put toward projects which benefit the community of Sandspit and its residents.
The Sandspit Community Society is governed by a volunteer board of directors which is made up of members of the community, and society membership is made up of Sandspit residents. The Sandspit Community Society operates a number of local ventures, including the Sandspit Inn, the Sandspit Visitor Centre and the Sandspit Community Bus. Society members have a passion for seeing the community thrive, knowing that Sandspit has a great deal to offer both visitors and residents, including access to the spectacular sights of Gwaii Haanas.
There is more to Sandspit than its incredible beauty, though. There is a sense of community here that binds people together, and the fact that everybody knows everybody gives it a feel of being part of a big extended family. It is culturally diverse and home to talented artists, business people and very giving, caring citizens. Society members believe that the future is bright for Sandspit and that there is much opportunity to be found here.
Relaxing. Inviting. Serene.
Spend your Haida Gwaii vacation in comfort and convenience. The Sandspit Inn is located just steps from the Sandspit Airport on Haida Gwaii’s Moresby Island and within walking distance of the area’s hiking trails and beaches.
Sandspit is known as “the gateway to Gwaii Haanas,” one of Canada’s most magnificent national park reserves. From your base at the Sandspit Inn you’ll have quick access to a world of biodiversity, from aquatic and marine life to indigenous and endangered birds, to perhaps even the occasional bear sighting. The flora and fauna are as diverse as the wildlife, and visitors will be able to get up close to some of the most spectacular sights in BC.
The Sandspit Inn features 20 rooms, each with two double beds and ensuite washroom. Pass-through/adjoining rooms are available for family or group stays. Rooms include cable TV, radio/alarm clock, hair dryer and complimentary Wi-Fi. Guests can enjoy a delicious, expertly prepared meal or drinks at the on-site restaurant featuring a dining room and lounge
