Since it is located on the main Queen’s Highway, it is easily accessible by road from other main centre. There is a long golden sand beach at Pacific Harbour and views out to sea to the picturesque island of Beqa and the encircling Beqa Lagoon. Most resorts on Beqa Island transfer guests from Pacific Harbour across to the island. There are luxury as well as budget resorts on the island.
