A popular tourist destination in the summer, Tofino's population swells to many times its winter size. It attracts surfers, nature lovers, campers, whale watchers, fishermen, or anyone just looking to be close to nature. In the winter it is not as bustling, although many people visit Tofino and the west coast to watch storms on the water. Close to Tofino is Long Beach, a scenic and popular year-round destination, at the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve. Nearby Maquinna Marine Provincial Park, with its natural hot springs, is located about 45 kilometres (28 mi) north of Tofino and is also a popular day-trip destination for tourists although it is only reachable by boat or float plane.
Due to Tofino's warm winters (warmer than both Victoria or Vancouver) yet cool summers, this makes the location the very definition of temperate. Tofino's winters are so mild that it can grow some of the most exotic palm trees in Canada. Summers are the driest season with only 76.8 mm of rain in July - still more than most other locations in BC for that month. During the cooler season however, there is a lot of precipitation with 492.1 mm in November alone. Nearly all of the precipitation that falls throughout the course of a year is rain with 203 days with rain and only 9.8 days with snowfall. However, this is only average; the median snow amount is 0, meaning most years do not receive any at all, making it the least snowy town in Canada. A seaside community in the Rainforest, unlike anywhere you've been in Canada.
Thirty - three acres of treed, inlet view property. Can be subdivided into 3 pieces without rezoning. Possible further subdivision with rezoning. This is one of the last large parcels of land in Tofino. Just right for a private institution, school, or community organization wanting space and privacy. Many excellent building sites out of the tsunami zone and walking distance to everything. The property abuts the proposed First Nations Economic Zone at Middle Beach. Road access from Industrial Way or the highway.More details
