Tonquin beach is referred to as the “local's beach” and it is much quieter than the other well known beaches around Tofino. It is really the only beach in Tofino itself. A short walk along a paved path leads to a gravel trail and steps leading to the beach. Follow the main road through Tofino, turn left on 1st Street,... More

The sign says its a 5 min walk, but pretty sure it was shorter than that. A beautiful walk through the forest to a small beach. It was raining the day we went and it was a wonderful thing to stand at the edge of the forest and listen to the waves!

We went there by walk from our hostel. Everybody pointed this place as a beautiful and romantic place to watch the sunset. They were so right. It was breathtaking, not only the sunset, but all the way to get there!!!

Hidden away after a pretty walk thru the woods, the small but picturesque beach near our B&B was perfect for some photography and a good book.

Walked over from the place we were staying in Tofino. It's a short walk from the "downtown" - passing Sobo's and the park near the end of that street. There are a few entrances, so check a map. It used to be just a walk to Tonquin beach, but it has been expanded to include a nice walk through the... More

We have been going to Long Beach and area for over 30 years and had never heard of Tonquin Beach so when we spotted it on the map that we were given we thought would be fun to go and check it out. It is about a 20 minute stroll to the beach and it is well worth the effort... More
