Where to stay in Tofino

Many options cluster around the township itself, in the island's north, with those near the beach or the town's marina usually proving the most popular. If the town feels too touristy, look farther south--you can find plenty of small hotels, guesthouses, and private holiday rentals along the coast, just off the Pacific Rim Highway. Make sure you reserve your accommodations in advance if planning to visit between June and September, the height of the season.
