Long Beach, Tofino

4.8
#2 of 148 in Beaches in Canada
The longest and widest beach in Pacific Rim National Park, Long Beach stretches for over 16 km (10 mi). You can spend hours exploring the beach, which is known for the amount of driftwood, seashells, crabs, and starfish that washes up on shore. Watch surfers ride the waves, go surfing yourself, or if the tide is low, swim. When the tide is high, exploring the beach can be dangerous as the logs on the beach can be swept into the ocean. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Long Beach by using our Tofino tourist route planner.

    Great beach for surfers is very popular, but also to the walk. And for children to play. Full on the weekend.

    Stunning setting and such an empty beach. There are lots of free parking spaces along the miles and as each lets onto the beach, there are a few people but largely it's just empty and stunning. Watch ...  more »

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.
