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.

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.
