Tonquin Park, Tofino

4.7
#8 of 15 in Parks in Tofino
Walkers of all abilities should be able to tackle Tonquin Park, a scenic trail that passes through rainforest and the Pacific coast. Meander through the lush forest before alighting on the pristine beach as your final destination; round-trip, the hike totals 2.6 km (1.6 mi). While sturdy boots are always advisable for treks, the gravel road here gives you more grip than many other coastal and forest walking routes.

  • Confusion where the event was, and frankly not the best plan for a wedding, but no one died or got lost after the event  more »
  • A very nice trail which leads from a small parking to the beach which can be accessed by walking down guite a well maintained stair. Rest rooms are at the park entrances, not on the beach.  more »
  • The walk through the forest is well set out and wooden stairs were a great help in places. Loved the beach at the end. We stood and watched porpoises in the bay.  more »

  • Quick and easy trail if you only have 45mins to spare. We were in and out to the beaches. Trails were well maintained and not rigorous at all. Kids can definitively do this with the parents.
  • Beautiful little beach just a short walk down a boardwalk staircase
  • Spectacular views and good easy trail.
  • Spectacular beach. Just a short walk along a boardwalk, then prepare to be amazed!

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.
