“Private Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

Maybe just the locals know about this park, but it's a treasure! Once we walked along the fun boardwalk through the woods, it opened up to a fantastic beach!

“Hidden Gem in Tofino”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

We were told about this beach by one of the locals. The trail to the beach is very pleasant - lovely forest and a boardwalk to the beach. The terrain is a bit steep - not wheelchair accessible without assistance.

This is a fun place with rocky areas, great places to sit and watch people, wildlife boats, etc.. Very gentle surf at lower tide.

Private homes above the beach area - no restrooms at beach level.

“Who knew?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

Discovered this little gem a couple of visit's ago and now i come here as often as possible! It's a very quiet beach with great rock formations, wildlife and just an overall sense of beauty and serenity. Some very lucky home owners have a beach all to themselves and i'm quite jelous

“Private and Calmer Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

Nice trail walk and very well maintained staircase down to the beach except the last step down to the actual beach is a bit steep. It is a true hidden beauty. It has much less traffic. You will be so impressed as soon as the beach comes into sight. Every turn you will be surprised.
