11 Best Airbnb Rentals and Cabins in Tofino for Nature Lovers

Located on the west coast of British Columbia Vancouver Island, Tofino is a sleepy fishing town best known for its surfing, food scene and access to unparalleled nature. Surrounded by islands, mountains and the sea, the natural landscape is made up largely of sand and pebble beaches and ancient rainforests, making Tofino a year-round destination for outdoor adventurers, while the city sees an increase in beachgoers and the hikers during the summer months, storm watchers and surfers make Tofino their top fall and winter destination.

Getting to Tofino takes some effort, but it’s worth it. From the Tsawwassen ferry terminal on the mainland south of Vancouver, it’s a 90-minute ferry ride to the Swartz Bay terminal north of Victoria, followed by a 4.5-hour drive to Tofino. Or if you feel like a spendthrift, you can always treat yourself to a seaplane ride and get there in just 45 minutes from Vancouver International Airport.

Anyone who has visited Vancouver Island will tell you that the trip is worth it. Once there, you are free to play in the ocean and explore Clayoquot Sound by kayak, gray whales and humpback whales cruise through the waters or trek through thick forests of old Douglas fir, western red cedar and Sitka spruce. And after a day of surfing and adventures along the rocky shores, take part in a local Tofino tradition as you head to the original Tacofino truck and binge on fish tacos.

Although Tofino is small and remote, there are plenty of great Airbnb cabins and other Holiday rents to stay there right away. Whether you’re staying in Tofino proper or the nearby and equally cool town of Ucluelet, here are the 11 best Airbnb surf shacks, cabinsand cabins to call home on a Tofino vacation.
