“Does it ever end?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

This beach is huge with great parking. When the tide is out you have to walk a fair distance to the water's edge. Just beautiful. When a storm is up it is unbelievable.

“A Beautiful Beach to Surf or Visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

Chesterman Beach is my favourite beach in Tofino! It has great beginner surf and sunrises and sunsets to die for. A must-see in Tofino and one of the most beautiful places in the world! As a bonus, if you liked the movie One Week with Joshua Jackson, his end scenes were shot here ;).

We loved this beach. We stayed on South Chesterman and walked it everyday. Sunset was amazing. Surfed North Chesterman....also lovely.

“Favourite place in Tofino”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

We stay on this beach whenever we come to Tofino. It's magical in any type of weather, and with just a glint of sunlight shimmers the most amazing palette of silvers and golds.

“nice walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

Great beach for a walk and a chance to watch some cold water Surfers too. The sandbar at low tide is extensive. Lots of kelp, seabirds and on windy days, lots of surf.
