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.

Reviewed June 3, 2014

My friends and I absolutely loved this beach. We kept going back during the 2 nights we stayed at Tofino. Such a beautiful and sandy beach with clear water. Not too many people there. Had an awesome time! Must go!

“Great for Surfing! But that's about it.”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

While long beach is an amazing surf spot, it really kind of lacks a lot of other amenities that would make this beach a great place to visit. While we went to surf and had an amazing time, we could help but notice the lack of drinking water taps, though bathrooms and showers were provided and very useful.

“One of the Best!”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

We had amazing weather....sunny and warm with less wind than I would normally expect. We were actually wading in the surf. This is one of the "Must Sees" if you visit Vancouver Island.
