Sandy beaches with year-round surfing are found in Cox Bay, Chesterman Beach and popular Long Beach, part of the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve. The relaxed town of Tofino sits on the peninsula’s tip.
I was fortunate enough to explore The Great Bear Rainforest and its surroundings. From sea to sky, we travelled on fishing boats, kayaks, floatplanes and helicopters. We stood on mountaintops. We swam in the sea. We wandered through giants.
