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.

  • 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
