What can you say about one of gods creations. This is one of many incredible beaches in the area. Beautiful place for a long walk while listening to and warching the pounding surf. Loved it!

Visited on a cloudy afternoon and still managed to get some great photos. The beach is beautifully clean and there are plenty of interesting drift wood, drift logs and drift trees to see!

What an amazing beach, so clean, tidy and just beautiful. We walked to frank island as tide was out great views. Could imagine ourselves coming back in the summer and spending a lot of time here...

The tranquil beauty is best admired at sunrise with a low tide. The expansive beach, roar of the surf, salty fresh air makes one feel grateful to be alive. Watching our young kids and dog running free will light up any parent and/or dog owner.

Went here with friends who skimmed & surfed. They really enjoyed it. We enjoyed the vast beach & openess. Very clean. Absolutely beautiful. Parking close by.

Love Chesterman Beach lots of similarities to Long beach but more of a whale tale shape and during low tide you can walk out to some small islands. Soft sands, brilliant views, where does one complain. Parking lot off Lynn was nice and only minutes...More

Very calming walk along a nice long beach with rolling waves. It goes a long ways. Easy to Access as well. As Andy Warhol once said: “my mom called the sofa a chesterfield.”

We stayed on Chesterman Beach in a VRBO house. What a beautiful place to spend a week with family and friends. We walked the beach morning and night, enjoyed a couple fires, bodyboarded everyday (even in the hail).

It's about 2 or 3 kms. I really haven't checked between north and south chestermans. It's a long walk .

Yes. It's a great place to take the dogs. They can run for hours and hours.
