Pay for parking at one of the designated areas and be sure to walk both segments and go up to Frank Island at low tide.

Water is very cold. Heed all warnings posted, especially with regards to rip currents.

What a wonderful beach to walk and relax. Whether your there to surf or beach-comb or just take in the amazing views you will have a great experience. Easy paid parking is now in effect but the small amount to pay helps the town and it’s worth it.

A beautiful beach with tide pools to explore which we really enjoyed. A lot of people cycling on the beach too as it's nice and firm. The only let down is that you have to pay for the parking and we really really struggled to find anywhere to park an RV. It was $12.25 to park for the day so not the end of the world but not great either.

We only had one day to visit Tofino and Chesterman Beach was the one most people suggested we see. The beach is beautiful- the sand and surf are first class. I was hoping that the smoke and fog would clear for our visit. In fact during the 90 minute drive to Tofino, the skies were glorious and the sun was out, however as we got closer it because overcast yet again. It still didn't prevent us from enjoying several hours walking along the beach.

Absolutely beautiful beach - largely empty when we visited. Paid-for parking and toilets are available a few minutes' walk from the beach. No refreshments available other than at the (very posh) Wikkanninish Inn at one end of the beach.

Took a morning walk down this beach at low tide and wandered out to the island (which I suppose is actually a peninsula). Very cool having the ocean on both the left and right while walking on the beach, and it was great to take a poke around the tidal pools. Even surfed at the south end of the beach the next day. Lovely spot.

Not our typical beach comparing to Mexico, Cuba and such. Overall amazing place to visit. Still cold in April to go swimming, but if you have a wet suit and love to surf. It’s one of the places to go. Beautiful beach and relaxing.

We arrived to watch some friends surf right as the sun was setting. It was breathtaking. If you can go watch the sunset, do it. Definitely worth planning and stopping by. Easy access to the beach and parking is decent. We enjoyed a fire on the beach with some friends. Windless night and a nice 16 degrees. Can't get any better than that!

Beautiful beach, you would walk along it for hours. The tide was low when we went, so we were able to walk and walk, including out to Frank's Island. A great place to experience the beauty of the Pacific Ocean.

Chesterman Beach is a must see when in Tofino. The beach is great to walk upon and or ride a bike as many people do! There is ample parking and access points to the beach. Take your time and enjoy the serenity of the waves and surrounding landscape.
