Tofino: What to do and Where to Go?

Once in a while visiting a remote island might come as a required respite. Looking for such a destination, I came across Tofino. This is a small town where you feel like you are getting away from the city. However, you will find all sorts of things to do here. What’s best is you can visit this city at any time of the year. Here are some attractions that you can check out when you are in the city.

Walk Along the Beach

When you visit the city, you cannot miss out on the 16-kilometer long beach. This is in the Pacific Rim National Park. This beach can be accessed from different points. I spent a relaxing time on this beach. The beach is flat which makes it the perfect place to work. I came across this incinerator rock; this is a large rock which you can see from a great distance.

Go Surfing

The long beaches in the city make just the ideal destination for surfing. As a matter of fact, you will be able to surf all throughout the year. Since I am new to surfing, I took some lessons before taking part in the activity. Lessons are offered on different beaches. In case you are living in a beachfront resort, you can ask them if they can arrange it for you.

Go Hiking

There are several hiking trails in the city. The view that it offers is spectacular. There are old growth forests which have some documented trees that are pretty old. You will come across trees like Sitka spruce, fir, and western red cedar line. Some of the trails will lead you to empty beaches and secluded coves.
