Summer – the season we live for, work hard for, and plan for. Time to slow down, regroup, and remember what it feels like to relax, grab a book and a slice of sky. Long days, warm nights, spontaneous barbecues with friends, and precious time with family.
Chances are your kids are already counting the sleeps until school’s out, so if summer vacation planning is still on your to-do list, how about a family playdate at the beach? From spectacular Clayoquot Sound adventures to the simple pleasure of a Cox Bay tide pool, come see why Pacific Sands Beach Resort is a consistently top-ranked Tofino hotel on TripAdvisor.
Tofino is a year round playground, but things definitely heat up around July and August. Check out some highlights:
Free Kid’s Camps
Always a hit with young campers (and a win-win for parents), our Kid’s Camps run daily in July and August. From animal tracking and survival skills to sea otter and whale workshops, it’s as fun as it is educational!
Family Surfing Lessons
Surf in/surf out – that’s what it means to be this close to the beach. Ready to ride? Our Pacific Surf Package welcomes fun-seeking surfers of all ages, all levels. Held steps from your suite right here in Cox Bay, it includes equipment and lessons with the pros from Surf Sister.
Stand Up Paddleboarding
SUPing is sweeping the planet as a fun, scaled down version of surfing that people of all ages and abilities can enjoy. Get on board with our Pacific Paddleboard Package including your choice of beachfront and ocean view accommodations, and lessons (including equipment) with our friends at Tofino Paddle Surf.
Nightly S’mores Roasts
Enjoy complimentary fireside celebrations of everybody’s favourite marshmallow treat, nightly from 6:30 to 7:30pm in the main Gazebo. From sticks to all the delicious ingredients, guests big and small are welcome to help themselves. More on Resort Services.
