Tofino, on Vancouver Island, is home to tons of stunning beaches. Frequented by surfers, couples on a stroll or those just looking to grab some rays, the beaches here can pack out quickly. Florencia Bay in Ucluelet, however, is far more secluded and the perfect place to watch the sunset.
Seriously stunning, Florencia Bay is nicely situated for those heading just to Ucluelet or to Tofino. Far less busy that any of the other beaches nearby, this spot looks directly at the incredible sunset to the west. It’s magic.
Here, you’ll be able to catch some sunset waves with a bit of a chiller crowd and enjoy the pinky skies from the water. Over 5km long, this beach has soft sand and incredible cliffs, making it a long hidden stretch from the busyness of the area in the summer.
Almost like out of a movie, this beach is far less frequented that those a bit farther north in Tofino. You and your buddies will have this stunning location for sunset almost all to yourselves. Just follow the beautiful path through the woods.
Directions: Turn on Wickaninnish Road. Look to your left look for the sign with the parking lot for Florencia Bay Beach.
