The Beachside in Bloom

A brilliant bouquet of wildflowers bloom along the beaches and line the streets of Tofino. A popular spring sight is the robust rhododendron; a flower that seems to take turns popping from May to July like crimson, violet and fuscia fireworks.

Native to the Pacific Northwest and abundant around the globe, the rhododendron comes in many colours; saturating scenic routes and adding a colourful contrast to local nature walks. With hundreds of species, they create a wonderful attraction for late spring and early summer travellers. Mixed among them are little buds that graze your ankles and tiny blossoms above your head that fall like a gentle flurry when a strong wind blows. There is no shortage of nature on our peninsula and the views are ever-changing! 




Welcome to our little slice of paradise, our temperate rainforest, our wild and bountiful botanical garden!

"Relaxing, delicious and beautiful stay!"
We went for a pre-wedding weekend away together and had the most incredible time. Ocean view room had us sitting near the sliding glass door with our books and beverages for hours. Really just soaking it all in. The food was so delicious and such great quality. 10/10 highly recommend.
"Perfect in Paradise"
Couldn't have been better. A beautiful/spacious room overlooking the ocean/sunset. A finer dining option right below us, a more casual one close by at the Surf Club, complete with hot tub and cold beers on tap. The place is immaculately clean, the service excellent. And the lodge is literally right on the beach. What could be better, indeed.
"Ultimate Tofino Experience"
Long Beach Lodge resort is a comfortable and fun place to stay with friends and family. My husband and I stayed in a rainforest cottage with our husky for a week. We had friends join us on the weekend and my MIL came for part of the week. The Great Room restaurant served delicious food and had a great BC wine list. My MIL watched my husband surf over mimosas and brunch in the Great Room. My husband loved the surf rentals on site. The housekeeping staff was so friendly and checked-in everyday for what our needs were durign our stay. The kitchen in our cottage was well stocked and we cooked quite a few meals. We loved walking along Cox bay with our dog and relaxing at the water front fire pits on the clear nights. The private hot tub at the cottage was also a hit and housekeeping serviced the hottub everyday.
