It sprawls on a peninsula within Clayoquot Sound, characterised by wild natural scenery including lakes, inlets and ancient rainforest. Sandy beaches with year-round surfing facilities include Cox Bay, Chesterman Beach and popular Long Beach, part of the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve.

Children’s Programs: No. Although they welcome your children, they do not have any supervised children’s programs.

Extra Info: For several thousand years, the Tla-o-qui-aht Nation (anglicized to Clayoquot) have lived and settled in the region, including the village of Opitsaht, across the water from Tofino on Meares Island. A nation of skilled fisherman and master carvers, the Tla-o-qui-aht were once led by Chief Wickaninnish, from whom the Inn gets its name (meaning “No one goes before him” or “He-who-no-one-sits-in-front-of-in-the-canoe,” depending).
