#pacificsandscontest – Give Us Your Best Shot

UPDATE: Our popular contest was retired in 2023 – thank you for sharing your photos with us!

From the beauty of breaking waves and the simple splendor of a tide-pool, to adventurous action shots or candid selfies against our rugged shores, there’s no shortage of Tofino photo-ops! Show us what made your stay special and Instagram your way to our Monthly Photo Contest prize of a 2-Night Getaway, including complimentary wine on arrival and Vij’s Curry To-Go dinner entrees for 2.
