Suites On Chesterman's Beach
Chesterman's Beach, approximately 3 kilometers of white sand and scattered rock outcroppings, from the North West end by the Wickanninish Inn to the South East where it terminates in a rocky shoreline penetrated with crevasses and caves. About mid point the beach swings off in a spit to the South and at low tide joins up with Frank Island. During severe winter storms the ocean pounds on the island with such severity the waves actually crash over the rock formation at the center point creating two islands.
Surfers from all over the world come to Chesterman Beach to challenge the raw forces of nature. For the first time ever a Cold Water Classic surf championship was held on Chesterman Beach with the honour of first place going to Peter DeVries a local Tofino born resident. Young and old gather on the beach to experience the thrill of riding the surf. There are many surf schools and equiptment rental outfitters in Tofino to supply you with all the gear and training required. Here at Sea Star we provide beach side accommodations with racks for the surf boards, out side showers and a hot tub to warm up after. Happy Surfing.
In recent years, storm watching has become a major winter attraction for the Chesterman Beach and Tofino area. With hurricane force winds buffeting the coastline producing massive waves which explode like fireworks against the rocks sending spray rocketing skyward in an awesome display of nature at it's wildest. Walking the beaches and trails with the ocean and wind pounding down around you takes you into a surreal world of sailing ships and ancient explorers. Weather on the West Coast changes dramatically and can take you from sunshine and blue skies to a full blown storms all in one day.
