Taking a green approach to life, business and travel is an easy and essential way for all of us to protect the places we love and visit. As an added bonus, it often makes for a more rewarding, authentic travel experience, encouraging deeper connections with the people and places we visit. Not only do we benefit, but so do all the visitors and future residents who arrive after us, for years to come.

Waste Management and Recycling

We work hard to ensure all our waste products are managed in the most "green" way possible. We re-use whenever we can, and recycle all our appropriate waste materials. Our guests our encouraged to do the same! Please ask the front desk for the location of recycling bins.

Sustainable Energy Resources

The Surf & Sand Lodge is exclusively powered by renewable and sustainable energy resources. Our clean energy commitment helps to defend the environment, while fighting global warming and generating new jobs. As a guest of the Beachcomber, you are a part of the solution to global climate change.

Water Conservation

Our most precious resource is water. We have instituted many water conservation practices in our hotel as reflected in our grounds-keeping and laundry policies featured on this page.

Re-Use Towels

For guests who will be with us more than one day, we offer the option of fresh daily towels or the opportunity to reuse and "hang them up to dry."

Fluorescent Bulbs Conserve Energy

We support the conservation of energy resources by using fluorescent light bulbs throughout our hotel. Cost-effective, and an important and timely innovation, they last longer and make us shine!

Mugs to Eliminate Paper Waste

To eliminate the waste that comes from using paper cups, we provide sturdy coffee mugs with our in-room coffeemakers and tea service—all of which is available in our lobby throughout the day.

Extended Sheet Use

Like our towel service, our extended guests will be invited to re-use their sheets, up to 3 days, unless new bedding is requested.

Electric Vehicle Charging

We are proud to offer multiple charging stations for electric vehicles at the Beachcomber Motel, just across from the Surf & Sand Lodge. The charging stations supply 208-240 Volt AC power and are designed to control and monitor energy delivery from the hotel's electrical service to your eco-friendly car.
