Chesterman is a gorgeous beach with many B&B properties on its shores. Had I know how nice some of them are, I would have booked my accommodations there!

Georgeous beach with fabulous rocks covered in mussels and star fish at low tide. Site of the beautiful Wickaninish Hotel.

Loved this beach! Lived in Ucluelet 30 years ago and did not visit this beach! Wow, sure missed this one, sunset and sunrise both beautiful here. At low tide you can walk out to Frank Island and see the Pacific from the rocks! (Be aware this is private property, so be respectful.)

OK, so we're not the first to figure this out, but this place is wonderful. There in mid-September, and we were welcomed to Tofino by a heavy rainfall. It's been said that in Tofino (and this part of the world generally), there is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing choices. But after a 5+ hour journey to get here, we were at first disappointed, even with gore-tex (including rain pants).

Our outsides were, of course, soaked; but our insides started to grin almost immediately. Chesterman's is both wide and long; you can do nearly 1-1/2 hours on a round trip Wickanninish Inn on the north side to the rocky point on the sound side. Along the way, even, as we learned, on very rainy days, you'll encounter smiling people, dogs thrilled to tear it up the sand and the surf, scores of surfers, really beautiful seascapes with offshore islands and rocky points, and plenty of space. What more would you want?

Awesome. Humbling. Sublime. Stunning. Sacred. Majestic. Profound. Peaceful. Exciting. Ever changing. Forceful. Tranquil. Meditative. Enlivening.

Even blissful.

Again, words fail because being in this nature overwhelms. You even have a chance to see how infinitely big and small we all are simultaneously.
