I love Tofino for so many reasons. I love it for its cool, laid back surf culture. Spying a cyclist peddling her way along the Pacific Rim Highway in pursuit of the perfect surf break never gets old. I love the enduring west coast wet that the temperate rain forest thrives in. I love navigating a kayak through the collection of islands and cragged coves that encircle the peninsula. I love poking around galleries, looking for a piece of Tofino to take back home with me. But what do I love most about Tofino? The moments spent with my sister on our west coast camping trips. One memory in particular: sharing a laugh on a Mackenzie Beach log, sipping warm apple cider as the sun dips below the horizon. (See my own sunset on slide #12.)
Here is a selection of your gorgeous sunsets collected by Tourism Tofino using the hashtag #yourtofino, in addition to some photos taken by their own talented photographers.
