“Tidepools, surfers, crashing waves on a long sandy beach.”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Beautiful, absolutely beautiful! Teens(16 yr olds!!) spent over 3 hrs first day checking out the tide pools and didn't want to walk the beach. Just loved watching the crashing waves, the surfers and smelling the ocean air...it was relaxing. Nighttime bonfires were allowed when we were there and we wished we had booked more days to make that a reality. Another time for sure.

“Awesome views!”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

What a great place for a family! We loved seeing parents teaching their little ones how to surf. The beach itself is a beauty and you can walk for long distances. The entire Tofino beach area, either here or closer to the city or in the city itself is beautiful. The new beach in town is also a good place for a short hike and lunch!

“Hanging on the Beach”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Love the bay and how the water rushes in then takes flight to leave the sand all rippled with wave imprints.
