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).

  • Great park walking distance from downtown Tofino. Hang out on this regionally unique beach and/or walk a rainforest trail with viewing platforms unlike any other in Tofino (similar to Wild Pacific Trail in neighbouring Ucluelet).
  • Beautiful. Wooden stairs and boardwalk to get there, so not accessible to a wheelchair.
  • Beautiful beach with lots of things to discover. Tide pools are fun to explore at low tide. Easy trails near by.
  • Great beach. Go there during low tide.
  • Fantastic weather in beautiful park
