Reached by a well marked trail from the edge of Tofino. The trail system is being extended to reach other beaches. Great trails through the rainforest and then you get the stunning views. Great for families.

This is a nice hike with great views of the ocean.. Nice slightly steep hike through the forest to several lookout points over the ocean.

This was a really nice walk along the pathway to the beach. There was lots of sealife at the beach to see. You could find starfish under the rocks if you looked closely. The cave was really cool.

The beaches were gorgeous with soft sand, rocks, and cool looking inlets/caves! Be careful climbing/walking on the rocks as even with grip, you can fall! Lots of beautiful properties along the beaches but doesn't take away from the natural beauty itself! So glad we checked it out!

We took a hike down the Tonquin Trail and enjoyed the fresh air, trees and the natural setting along with the exercise. The park and beach were all right although this particular beach is rather small compared to the other beaches in the area

This is a small beach which requires a hike in. The trail from the community centre is okay, but it seemed more like a logging road, with deep tire ruts from a maintenance vehicle. The trail out to the road had boardwalks which were nice. Signage could be better from the beach, with a map showing where each trail led... More

Walking along here was very tranquil. We walked along the beach and managed to get close to an Eagle's nest. Walking in the path was peaceful and an easy walk. I loved the businesses carved into the boardwalk for their support.

A short stroll from town takes you to Tonquin Park and beach. Our waitress recommended it and we were glad she did. She also gave us the tip to walk the wrong way round. Signage says go left from the street but if you go right you come to the beach by an easier and quicker route. Up to you... More

We were there on a beautiful sunny warm September day. People were sunbathing, and playing croquet on the beach. Lots of people walking the trail. Easy trail from the parking lot to the beach, about 1km. Trail is very well-maintained.
