Trip Planner: Canada / British Columbia / Vancouver Island / Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District / Clayoquot Sound / Tofino / Chesterman Beach
Take a walk along the long stretch of sand at Chesterman Beach, as surfers ride the waves and friendly locals walk their dogs. Find a spot to sit and enjoy the sunset, or build a fire after dark and watch the stars. At low tide, you can stroll out to the rocky island outcrop and explore the exposed tidal pools. Keep an eye on the time, though; the tide can rise very quickly and could leave you stranded on the rocks. For Chesterman Beach and beyond, use our Tofino tour planner to get the most from your Tofino vacation.
