Tofino has long been the unofficial surf capital of Canada and many people who visit this bohemian backwater choose a beachfront accommodation, but there are more reasons than ever before to spend time on the marina side.

If one were to picture the epitome of serenity, it would probably look something like Tofino Resort + Marina’s new floating sauna. Moored in the frigid waters of B.C.’s Clayoquot Sound, the sauna combines the peace of nature with the physical release of a day at the spa.

With Americans clamoring to visit Canada again after a long border closure, here’s where to go off the beaten track. Set on the rugged west coast of Vancouver Island, Tofino is a surfer’s paradise and nature-lover’s retreat.


The thing about places like Tofino is you don’t simply end up here by accident. It takes effort and once you’re here, you feel part of a special club – where even its longtime members seem genuinely happy you’ve arrived.

It takes horseback rides and helicopters to get to these spectacular, remote retreats where the only company you’ll have are grizzlies or stingrays, and an exceptionally trained staff, of course.
The Telegraph

The hip home base of this ocean-front community on Vancouver Island’s west coast is a full-service, one-stop shop, delivering comfort, fine dining, a lively watering hole, water taxi, and an ocean adventure centre ready to whisk you away to the region’s islands and inlets.


Finding a full-service resort to stay at, with its own dock and friendly, relaxed staff, only a short stroll from the oceanside community’s artisan shops and surf shops is the hard part. At least, it was until Tofino Resort + Marina opened in February.

And yes, even the journey to get there is part of the adventure.
