The walk through the forest is well set out and wooden stairs were a great help in places. Loved the beach at the end. We stood and watched porpoises in the bay.

Found this beach by luck. The walk started on an amazing set of wooden walkways and stairs and ended in a very secluded beach. What incredible views from this beach

Such a nice hike with beautiful views of the Rain Forest and crazy trees. Must take the beach offs to see beautiful beaches with very few people on them. A Must see in Tofino

Quiet and secluded part of Tofino sites. Worth the walk and the trek down the steep many stairs. Beautiful loop trails with look outs over the straight. Lovely easy hike to Middle Beach then across to MacKenzie Beach. Eagle's nest fully visible from Third Beach

This is my third time walking these trails. Well looked after and lots of direction points. The beach access is a little dodgy, however, it is the west coast and a tidal system will do that to any beach.

It is a bit of a hike to get to Tonquin Beach, but it is perfect for viewing a summer sunset. Stay for the whole show! our sunset was beautiful and people started leaving, but it appeared it might get even better and it did...More

The trail is really short, easy to walk & you have nice spots to see the ocean. There is more than one little beach where you can sit in the shadow or in the sun, whatever you prefer. Good for familys or with friends.
