Dalvay-by-the-Sea, aka The White Sands Hotel


The elegant Dalvay-by-the-Sea stood in for the White Sands Hotel in the Anne movies. (Although, I was surprised on a recent re-watch of the first movie that the White Sands Hotel is different.) I had hoped to stay there during our stay, but it was a little outside of our meager budget. We settled for lunch on our first full day on the island. It was so, so good! I tried mussels for the first time, and then I’m a little embarrassed to say that I got a hamburger. But this hamburger is probably in the top 5 of hamburgers.

After lunch, we did a little bit of exploring around the hotel.




(That bench reminds me so much of this beautiful painting by William Merit Chase: A Friendly Call)




Can’t you just imagine yourself in a white linen dress playing croquet on the lawn or reclining with a book on one of those wicker chairs?
