Jaw-dropping beautiful beach with two tides that collide as they round a small island. We saw a rainbow, ravens, sunshine, and stormy skies all in the same space. Popular with local surfers. Long, clean, sandy beach. Absolutely gorgeous.

If you're visiting the west coast/ Tofino this is one of the nicest beaches and linked to Cox Bay when tide is out. We were in in early Feb so had rain, which was rather a mist that fell almost continuously but didn't hinder the...More

We rented a home right on Chesterman Beach. What an amazing view that you don't get tired of. We enjoyed the long walks each day on beach and the absolutely beautiful sunsets. Highly recommend you check it out.

We cycled along this beach during our Tofino stay and it was just stunning! It’s a great place to walk/cycle or just to watch the storms or surfers. I can imagine it can get very busy in the summer months. A must if in Tofino.

Yes. It's a great place to take the dogs. They can run for hours and hours.

My daughter, a Beach Patroller, was with me at Chesterman, advises that parents swim close to children under the age of 12yrs.
