Where to Stay in Tofino, BC

One of our favourite Vancouver Island getaways is to Tofino. Tofino is known for its beautiful beaches, great restaurants, and surfing.

On our recent trip to Tofino, my family surfed, boogie boarded, had campfires on the beach and took in every bit of west coast charm that we could.

One thing that I appreciate about Tofino is that there are many types of accommodations available. There’s something for every type of traveler in Tofino.

For the Adventurer

Looking to book fishing excursions, go whale watching or bear watching? The Tofino Resort Marina has you covered. This newly renovated hotel has an adventure center located on site ready to take you on a wide array of excursions.

My family enjoyed breakfast and dinner at 1909 Kitchen and dinner at The Hatch Waterfront Pub. We appreciated the kids’ menu at both restaurants and loved everything on our plates.

We loved staying in our upstairs studio. It was the perfect size for our family of four. The kids enjoyed the grounds at Ocean Village (especially the kids’ maze) and we all enjoyed being able to stand up paddle board at Mackenzie beach.

  1. I have been to Tofino a long time ago but don’t remember much about it really. I do like the idea of the Tofino Resort Marina for those who want to do a lot of fishing etc. The Ocean Village sounds like a dream for families too.

  2. We’ve only been once. We were a group of about 10 people or so and rented out a whole (large) cabin. Definitely need to go back.

  3. omg… these places look amazing! Tofino is totally on my bucket list of places to go and things to do! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Ocean Village is our absolute favorite spot. Oh goodness what awesome memories I have had there. Can’t get much closer to the water than that. BEST LOCATION EVER!

  5. Love it there and haven’t been in years! Your studio looked like a fun place to stay and I think our family would love that too, but a trip to the Wickaninnish Inn would be amazing!!
