The trail to the beach is really easy to walk and you are rewarded with a gorgeous, quiet, sandy beach at the end of it. A little bit out of town, but you can walk there in 20 minutes.

Short 10 minute walk from trail to beach. Nice little spot and pretty quiet today when we were there. Not much to see if you been to another Tofino beach but it is such a short walk why not check it out.

Great walk down to the bay. It was a bit up hill and down dale but nothing too strenuous and well worth it. The trail extension to the next bay is still being worked on at the moment but we did sneak down there, beautiful.

This is an amazing trail, and they are adding on to it again. Lots of access to wonderful beaches and sweeping ocean vistas. This is a must do

The trail along the coast is amazing with great views, but the access routes were not great. Lots of loose rock, uneven and muddy. This being said we are at the beginning of the season so hopefully it will be fixed soon.
