Where to stay in Tofino BC

Hi there! Planning a trip to Tofino in September for 4 nights. We have never been there and would love ideas on where to stay - lodging and camping! TIA

As you mentioned camping: do you think of tent-camping? Do you have all necessary equipment?

We are big fans of Pacific sands resort, great beach, great for surfing, close enough to both towns.

If you are camping then in Tofino I would suggest Crystal cove, or Bella Pacifica both on McKenzie beach or surf grove beside LongBeach Lodge on Cox Bay. There is also camping in Ucluelet, not far away, and will be less expensive for both camping and lodging

On my most recent trip, we stayed at the Tofino Marina. Stunning waterfront views on the inland side, so not wide sandy coves and open ocean, but those classic misty island-filled inlets that BC is famous for. We had a really nice corner room, and Shelter Restaurant is on site. Its also an easy walk into Tofino village so you don't need to drive and park.

You do! And pay through the nose. It is truly a world destination now and very small. Locals who remember when it was a sleepy surfer town tend to avoid it in the summer now. Too busy.
