Looking for a place to stay in Tofino? I recently stayed at Cox Bay Beach Resort
and had an awesome time. Four things in particular made my experience ultra-enjoyable:Hot tub near the beach:
Even in the pouring March rain, the resort's hot tub rocked. It’s right near the beach, so I soaked in the view while soaking in the tub.Beds:
Soft mattresses, comfy pillows and super fluffy duvets. I’m not normally one to notice these things, but it was pretty cozy.DIY Spa:
To create my own personal spa sanctuary, I poured the sac of complimentary bath crystals into the gigantic soaker tub and set the heated tiles to high... the resort’s big white robe and candles took my budget-savvy relaxation night to a whole ‘nutha level.Location:
You can’t get much better than this. Set on Cox Bay, the resort is close to good surfing, an incredible beach/sunset viewing point (the trail is just a 10-minute walk through the woods), birdwatching and lots of sandy beach.
Next time, I’ll bring my bike, as I realized that Cox Bay is the southernmost point of the Tofino MUP (Multi-Use Path), making it easy to bike into town.
