The African Beach B&B is located across the street from North Chesterman,
one of Canada’s premier surf beaches.
It’s a place where
you can get a glimpse of Tofino surf culture at its best – you
can get up early, wander a few steps across the road to check the surf,
suit up for a session, surf until you’re surfed out, and then stroll
back home to warm up and grind a gourmet breakfast before going back
out to do it all over again.
There’s surf every day of the year
in Tofino - North Chesterman cranks on moderate and large winter swells,
and the southeast storm winds blow offshore, grooming the swells into
steep, walled-up waves as they hit North’s steep sandbars.
North is an ideal spot for beginning surfers, and South Chesterman,
within walking or quick driving distance, picks up the prevailing long-period
The rest of Tofino’s surf spots – Cox Bay and
the breaks in the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve – are all within
short driving distance.
If one dreams of surfing green swell all day
and talking story by a beach fire at night before crashing in a funked-out
cabin, there may be no better place than the African Beach.
