Silver Sands Resort is located in Mandurah, south of Perth. With the new Forrest Hwy, you can get to Mandurah in under an hour, and the drive is actually quite enjoyable. Mandurah was traditionally a small tourist town, but it has grown considerably and now has every amenity that you need! Silver Sands Resort is located only a few minutes’ walk from town, the beach and a variety of shops. It is a four star resort that has been running for a long time now, and as such has built a popular reputation for being a great holiday destination! It is often full of guests, which says it is a good place to go for a break.
Where is Silver Sands Resort?
The resort can be found on Mandurah Terrace, near Adonis Road. To get there, make use of the new Forrest Hwy, which joins onto the end of Kwinana Freeway. Take the exit from the Forrest Hwy onto Lakes Road. This avoids all of the built up area north of Mandurah as well as the slower zoned areas which are easy to misread! Lakes road joins onto Gordon Road. Follow it to the end, and then turn left onto Mandurah Terrace. 600 metres along the road on the right you will see a big resort, which is Silver Sands Resort! Parking is at the north eastern end (the first part of the resort you see following Mandurah Terrace).
What does Silver Sands Resort have to offer?
Silver Sands is designed in a manner that will allow you to completely de-stress. It is fully sealed off from the public with fences and gates that only the visitors and owners have keys to. This means that if you have little kids that want to run around, they can only go as far as the fences. There are two pools, one indoor and one outdoor. They both have a range of depths designed for various aged people. There are several spas, a sauna, mini golf course, tennis, squash, pool and table tennis, darts, movie hire, barbeques, play ground and children and adult games rooms. There is more than enough to keep you occupied for several weeks, whilst unwinding and enjoying a swim in the pool!
