We stopped here for a lovely walk along the coast, in through the trees and enjoyed various quiet little beach spots on that walk. This is not a difficult walk and it is really lovely to walk for about an hour and explore a trail...More

I nice walk to stretch the legs and be rewarded with a lovely beach to sit and rest. The trail is well marked.

This is a short hike from the community centre in Tofino. Less than an easy 1 km gets you to Tonquin beach. Beautiful forest and scenery.

We were staying at Middle Beach Lodge and used the Tonquin Trail to get to Tofino and back. The hike was easy and provided several ocean and beach lookouts and also access to several beaches. Would do it again.

Was told it was a 5 min trail to the beach... more like 15 mins, mostly stairs, pretty challenging for me, and downright hazardous where it meets the beach at a four foot dropoff of exposed roots and sharp rocks, with no easy way down,...More

Tonquin Beach is a real hidden gem. It is a beautiful beach with hardly any visitors which makes it the perfect place to go! A 20 minute walk from Tofino, perfect!
