Attraction details
Owner description: Long Beach, the longest beach of Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, spans an extraordinary 16km (10mi) along the west coast of Vancouver Island. Described by locals to be magical, you will be astonished by the amount of life that call the tidal pools home. You will be sure to find crabs, shells, starfish, sea urchins and much more. As the surf comes crashing in, you will find surfers from around the world carving through the peaks of the waves. As the water settles, it gracefully rides up the beach with peaceful trickles and shimmering light from the breathtaking sunset crossing the colourful horizon. Long Beach is truly a rejunivating getaway for all ages. Whether you're looking to kickback, explore, adventure, hike, surf, or just take one of those long walks on the beach, Long Beach has it all.

“Long Beach”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

A beautiful sandy beach on the West Coast of Vancouver Island known for its length. Great for walking, photography, beachcombing and playing in the surf. A must see when visiting Tofino. I like the beauty and the sound of the surf - lovely at sunset!

“One of the Most Beautiful Beaches in the World”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

This is my go to place for recharging the old batteries. It's beautiful and goes on forever, so you can walk as long or as short as you like. Beautiful whitewashed driftwood everywhere and the ever-changing tides and sand, all to the music of the crashing waves. Go here if you ever have the chance, especially on a sunny day.

“Beautiful and clean”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

Tried surfing here in October, we saw the locals sitting in their trucks in the rain staying warm and dry while they watched the swells..probably thinking what are those 2 girls doing out there! It was a great beach, clean and beautiful!
