More info: Long Beach is the largest and longest beach in the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve on the west coast of Vancouver Island and spans 10 miles (16km) The total distance includes Schooner Cove, Long Beach, Wickaninnish Beach and Combers Beach. Each of these beaches is separated by rocky headlands, but at a very low tide the sand beaches are referred to collectively as Long Beach. The classic stretch of Long Beach between Schooner Cove and the headland at the north end of Wickaninnish Beach is about 6.5 km.
Looking out to sea, gray and humpback whales are sometimes spotted in the distance and winter storm watching on Long Beach can be a dramatic event as powerful tides flood the beach. Surfing is a year-round activity in Tofino, with some of the best rides being caught during the winter.
