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.

  • 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
  • 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

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.
