  • Great walk on a rain-free day. The trails(s) are reasonably well maintained. Tonquin And the other beaches are very nice and uncrowned at this time of year. Some excellent viewpoints along the trail. ...  more »
  • Tonquin beach is absolutely lovely, very secluded with great tide pools at low tide to explore. The brand new (looking) wood lookout that they have built along the trail system at one of the points is...  more »
  • The Trail is very quiet-few climbs/downhill. Basically 3 paths that are not too long and with 4 lookers. The Way is near the Village then the entrances/exits give directly to it. As It is a place with enough warning about wolves no food. It is forbidden to camp and drink also on site (with fine prediction) We Came in the winter so the cool is to go early because it darkens the 16:00h Rain and wind but still bearable (we saw elderly and children of lap on the trail). But in order not to pass any discomfort, better to go prepared with waterproof coats and appropriate boots (walking with the wet foot in the cold is the right formula for a flu). The Whole route can be done (with pauses to admire the scenery and take pictures) in 2:30h. It Fits a lot in the morning script.

  • Awesome fairly secluded sandy beach. Easy walk from tofino community hall parking lot, one set of stairs at the end to Tonquin beach. Took less than 20 minute to walk in. There are more trails down to third beach and middle beach. To see all the trails it would take between 50-70 minutes. All trails are well marked with signs and maps.
  • It's nice, with small and sheltered beaches. I prefer the scenery at Comber's Beach down the highway about 20 minutes... For me, if I'm in the area, I like seeing and hearing the big waves, not the sheltered nooks, but if you are looking for something different, fill your boots. There is an outhouse near the parking lot.
  • A lovely, though weathered, stroll through dense forest will lead to numerous beaches. Can't recommend it more.
  • Nice park, bit of a walk. So you know. But, views are beautiful.
  • It's a nice beach, easy access.
