Liss's Travel Tips for Tofino

What are the best places to eat and drink in Tofino?

If you're feeling fancy, Shelter Restaurant has incredible food and spectacular harbour views (you may even spot an orca!). For something a bit more laid back but still with a fun vibe, I love SurfSide (located within Pacific Sands Resort on Cox Bay) and think they have the town's best salmon burger. For coffee and treats, my go-to is Savary Island Pie - it may be hidden, but it's a true gem! Lastly, for ice cream you cannot miss a trip to Chocolate Tofino!!

What are the best things to do in Tofino?

Grab a coffee (from Savary Island Pie) and walk down on First Street Dock for some views of the inlet. Explore the trails from Tonquin Beach over to Middle Beach. Watch the sunset from the appropriately-named Sunset Point (Pettinger Point) on Cox Bay. Rent an e-bike from Tofino Electric Bike Co and bike the stunning new MUP (multi-use path) from town out to Long Beach - don't forget to pack yourself some snacks or a picnic though as there aren't any spots out that way for grub!

What is the best tip for planning a bachelorette in Tofino?

Book the InnChanter floating B&B in Ucluelet Harbour for your bachelorette, it was an incredible experience and was absolutely perfect for our group! Include the chef because having it catered saved so much time and energy from the group too - and the food was absolutely amazing!!
