Chesterman Beach, Tofino

4.7
#1 of 147 in Beaches in Canada
Beach Nature / Park
Take a walk along the long stretch of sand at Chesterman Beach, as surfers ride the waves and friendly locals walk their dogs. Find a spot to sit and enjoy the sunset, or build a fire after dark and watch the stars. At low tide, you can stroll out to the rocky island outcrop and explore the exposed tidal pools. Keep an eye on the time, though; the tide can rise very quickly and could leave you stranded on the rocks.

  • Rain or shine this beach is amazing. Very popular spot for surfing.
  • Stunning. Must see. Surfers everywhere having a great time!
  • Good waves, if this beach is low try walking south to the next beach.
