  • 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.
