About Tofino

At Pacific Coast Retreats you are at the midway point of Chesterman Beach: an easy walk to North or South Chesterman depending where the surf is and a wonderful place to walk out to Frank Island and explore the rocks and view of the lighthouse from the west side.

Pacific Coast Retreats is close to neighbourhood shops for ice cream and chocolate treats, groceries, and to the village for surf rentals and lessons, restaurants, whale watching, fishing charters and kayak rentals.
