4. Surf Tofino
Tofino, B.C., on Vancouver Island has some of the best surfing in North America. Explore 35-km of easy-access beaches for year-round surfing (though in wintertime, temperatures require a wetsuit). Beaches have sandy-bottoms and its safe waters also make Tofino a great place to learn to surf. Expert surfers will find more challenging remote reef breaks scattered along the coast, and Chesterman Beach provides good waves in summer and big winter swells.
