Sunset at Mackenzie Beach

Canada Mackenzie Beach Tofino

Added by Brayden Cogdale

  • 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.

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!
