Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Location! Just spent 2 weeks at The Sand Castle with 3 other elderly ladies and found the location perfect, away from the noise of the town and lying in bed at night listening to the waves while falling asleep. From the lounge sat looking out the large windows watching the cargo ships coming in and out. At night could also see the lights of the port of Portland and also lights of ships out at sea waiting to come in the next morning. We travelled to Warmambool, Port Fairy, Narrawong, Cape Bridgewater etc. for day trips. Enjoyed morning and afternoon walks along the beach too. Would recommend The Sand Castle to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday by the beach.
