If you are a die-hard surfer, this is the place to visit - even in the middle of winter. If not, you'll just enjoy the great scenery.

The immense beach was all ours to enjoy on what was a bracing December day. The crashing waves and golden beach were hard to beat. Lovely...

Doesn't get any better on the West Coast. Low-tide walks in the sunset are amazing. I spend countless hours just aimlessly exploring the tidal pools for wildlife. If you're lucky enough to be staying close to the beach the winter storm-watching season there's special kind of natural drama there which is not seen in many other places worldwide. Awesome spot for a romantic getaway.

Super surf and great winter storm watching. In our November visit we had it all from spectacular sunset, to torrential rain, to howling winds with assorted kite surfers, and ending in warm sunny low tide walk on a beach that goes for miles and numerous brave surfers.

Chesterman is the best beach for walking with the dog. At low tide the causeway opens up to Frank Island, although it is private property so hiking on the rocks is not encouraged. The vistas along this stretch of beach are breathtaking. Stop at Tacofino for a fish taco after your walk for a perfect end to a morning or afternoon.
