Beautiful beach. Great to walk when the tides out. Eagle souring adds a great dimension to the environment. Be aware of the tide schedule as it is a large change.

The iconic & highly-regarded travel guide, Lonely Planet, has just this January 2024 —- in its always highly anticipated & regular reviews — named Chesterman Beach in Tofino, on Canada’s Wild West coast, the 6th best beach in the world.
Chesterman Beach is certainly impressive with its 1.7 mile long firm sandy arching beach.
In addition, to one side it has an interesting cluster of tidal rock pools, & if the tide is right, one can walk out to join with the area of Frank island.
Tofino has a good selection of beaches at which to surf, to walk on, do yoga on, or to contemplate the world from, as well as beaches close by in the Pacific Rim National Park—- the spectacular stretch of land, connectingTofino to its non-identical twin ocean village, Ucluelet, or Ukee, as locals affectionately refer to it as.
This coast is blessed with a significant number of beaches along the tantalizing Pacific Ocean.
Chesterman offers many moods over the day, often starting with romantic foggy mornings, invigorating times with waves, walking & exploring in the day, ending with enchanting sunsets in the evenings.
As a life-commited ocean lover, I have travelled to a fair number of great beaches on five continents — also, too, discovering secluded gems in the process, & with that I am delighted Lonely Planet decided to include Chesterman Beach — just up the road from where I now live in Ucluelet — in its top 10 beaches on the planet.

Beautiful beach, you would walk along it for hours. The tide was low when we went, so we were able to walk and walk, including out to Frank's Island. A great place to experience the beauty of the Pacific Ocean.

Absolutely beautiful beach - largely empty when we visited. Paid-for parking and toilets are available a few minutes' walk from the beach. No refreshments available other than at the (very posh) Wikkanninish Inn at one end of the beach.

Beautiful beach with close access from parking lot. Endless sandy beach to walk and separate rocky areas with tidal pools too. Clean washrooms at trail entrance. People of all ages enjoying the outdoors.

Chesterman Beach features mikes of golden sand. The Pacific Ocean is chilly with wetsuit-clad surfers if all ages. We went in June 2022 for sunset viewing after dinner before the cougars and wolves. We were there until about 10:00 because the sunset was around 9:00. We actually encountered two cougars outside our in-town Tofino Airbnb upon our return.

A beautiful beach with tide pools to explore which we really enjoyed. A lot of people cycling on the beach too as it's nice and firm. The only let down is that you have to pay for the parking and we really really struggled to find anywhere to park an RV. It was $12.25 to park for the day so not the end of the world but not great either.

It’s really nice place to go vacation. The Legislation building is really beautiful. But hard garden is nice also. If we have time we’re going to Torino but need more day to stay. Malahat Skywalk are awesome too. Nice to spend vacation.
