Best beach in the world! You can surf, walk, chill, fire, sit, stand, eat, hang, friends, and much more. Two parking lots that can get full quick but you’ll find a spot no worries

Chesterman Beach was one of my favourite places to see on our west coast trip. The sunsets here were incredible here! Beautiful sandy beach to walk. Loved seeing all the surfers young and old. The locals were lovely!

This is a huge beach. Fabulous for walking, watching the ravens. And enjoying the unspoiled nature. This is the first beach I've been to with NO garbage! No plastic bottles, no styrofoam. Just shellfish, rocks and sand. The way it should be. Absolutely pristine. Also,...More

We had the perfect winter day at the beach: warm sunshine, crisp cool breeze, sparkling water, high surf with lots of surfers out, moms pushing strollers, people walking their dogs and couples strolling hand-in-hand. It doesn't get better tan this.
