“Little peaceful beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

Not very popular to tourist but a quiet, relaxing beach with lots of rocks to sit and watch the beauty of the ocean! Great when the skies are pretty!

“A wonderful find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

I've been to Tofino many times over the years & never knew the park existed, even though it is only a few minutes walk from the village centre, & what a treat to find it. I've seen the beach many times when heading out for a fishing trip & wondered how to get there. The town is doing a fantastic job of extending the park for a boardwalk which leads to a small, but very nice beach. From there you can access a trail which runs through the forest with lots of cutouts for great views (which the town is in process of extending). We walked for almost 2 hours and thought it a wonderful combination of forest and beach. A nice aspect is that you can do the walk as a loop, so you don't need to retrace your path as you return to the village. Highly recommended.

“Water coloring at Tonquin”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

A pleasant walk down boardwalk stairs leads to a secluded beach with a great view of Wickaninnish Island. One can sit on a log , sketch and watercolor for hours.
