Surfing capital of Canada, chic and laid back at the same time and a favorite weekend destination for those living in Vancouver. Tofino is one of the coolest islands I have been outside of Europe.
Tofino lies off the coast of Vancouver island, which in itself is already a destination worth going. You can drive to get to Tofino which is a stunning drive I have been told but I decided to fly which was exhilarating and one of the most beautiful views ever.
I stayed at the Wickaninnish Inn, a fantastic hotel right on Chesterman beach with The Pointe one of the best restaurants on the island and the fantastic Ancient Cedars Spa
Tofino has a population of 2000, it has one taxi for the entire island and it’s home to one of the most famous food trucks in the entire country, where Tacofino started, serving the best fish tacos you have ever had. The queue is there all day long. But so worth it.
And the sunsets. This island is famous for it. Every day a true spectacle. Check out #tofinosunsets on Instagram.
Surf, eat, sleep. That’s life in Tofino.
