Sunset at Mackenzie Beach

Added by James Dake

Duration: at least a weekend. Picturesque sunset on Canada's west coast. Great photography opportunity. Secluded beach. Perfect for a late dinner or snack at sunset. Beautiful campground.

Grab a loved one, your family, or your closest friends and head to Tofino for the weekend.

You can stay at Bella Pacifica Campground, right near the beach at the end of Mackenzie Beach Road, and enjoy the beach while camping in the west coast rainforest. Have a picnic, play some tunes, and watch an unforgettable sunset.

During the day, this is also a popular spot for stand up paddlers, due to the calm, protected waters – there is the T'ashii Paddle School in Tofino.

Back at the campsite, build a fire, roast some marshmallows, have a drink with friends, and fall asleep to the calming sound of the ocean.

Tucked away beach

This is a beautiful beach that is tucked away in Tofino. Not a lot of swell gets in. Its a really fun place to explore!

A beautiful spot

I was here for sunset once a few years back - amazing! You can really spend the whole day here at the beach then enjoy the end of the day with sunset. Highly recommend if you're in Tofino!

Amazing spot. There are some geocaches around the area too--bring GPS!
