Welcome to the surfing capital of Canada.

Tofino was named the “Best Surf Town in North America” in Outside Magazine's 2010 Editors' Choice Awards and was awarded top spot in TripAdvisor’s 2011 Traveler’s Choice Awards “Best Beach in Canada” category.

Explore 35km/22mi of easy-to-access beaches with year-round surfing. Popular spots to catch waves are Chesterman Beach, Cox Bay and Long Beach.

Ocean temperatures average 10°C/50°F, but a wetsuit will take the chill out of cold water surfing. Visit one of the nine surf shops in Tofino to rent surfing equipment or to take a surf lesson – instruction for all levels of expertise and ages is available.

While Tofino may not boast a tropical climate, the rugged, pristine wilderness and dramatic winter storms makes this a one-of-a-kind surfing destination. Enjoy its laid-back vibe, award-winning cuisine, oceanside accommodation, and plentiful outdoor activities.
