Our Location

Pacific Coast Retreats is located 6 km south of the small coastal village of Tofino at the furthest western edge of Vancouver Island. At Pacific Coast Retreats you are 200 feet from spectacular Chesterman Beach, an easy 2 minute stroll across the road and down a tree lined path on to 2.7 km long – white sandy beach on the Pacific Ocean. We are midway point to South Chesterman Beach where the surf is and a wonderful place to walk out to Frank Island and explore rocks and caves at low tide with view of the lighthouse from the west side.


Pacific Coast Retreats is close to neighborhood shops for ice cream, chocolate treats, gourmet take out, groceries, yoga studio and to Tofino village for surf rentals and lessons, restaurants, whale watching, fishing charters, kayak rentals and so much more.

Tofino is an easy 5 minute car ride – or ride your bikes along the 6 km multi use path (MUP) in to the Village. Pacific Rim National Park with its 16 km long stretch of breathtaking beaches is a short 10 km drive from our location in opposite direction of Tofino.
