Photograph Sunset Point in Tofino

Rate this Adventure Canada Sunset Point - Tofino

Added by John Entwistle

Amazing rocky point just north of Cox Bay Beach south of Tofino, British Columbia.

You can park at the public beach parking at Cox Bay Beach Resort and make your way out on to the beach. Once you are on the beach, head north until you get to the "Sunset Point" trail sign. The trail walks through the woods for ~100m until you join up with a boardwalk that takes you out to the point. Follow the boardwalk approximately 500m until you get to a rocky outcrop with a picnic table. Once you are here, it is a bit of a choose your own adventure. Be extremely cautious of the waves, as they crash very high up on the rocks. Always keep your distance from the edge of the water. An amazing place to catch a winter storm, but make sure you are prepared for the weather! 

Pack List

  • Camera
  • Waterproofing for your camera
  • Rain gear - Even if it is nice out, the ocean spray can get you wet real quick! 
  • A picnic lunch if you want to use one of the many picnic tables or benches
  • Hiking boots - The ground is quite uneven, and can be VERY slippery
