Sunset at Chesterman Beach
Canada › Chesterman Beach
Added by Kyle Frost
Catch sunset on the incredible expanse of Chesterman Beach. Just a short drive from town, or a walk from many of the local accommodations, this is not something to be missed while visiting Tofino.
Just minutes from downtown Tofino, Chesterman Beach is a great spot to catch the sunset, go for a run, or just walk down the beach towards Frank Island. The parking lot is just seconds from the beach.
Head to the right and scramble on the rocks to find a spot near the point, or walk to the left down the beach and catch views of offshore islands and kitesurfers (if the conditions are right!).
Be sure to to check sunset time, depending on the time of year!
- Jacket (coastal winds can definitely pick up)
