Headed to Tofino? Make sure to add Hot Springs Cove to the itinerary. The remote pools lie in a unique and spectacular setting, cascading over a waterfall and into a series of natural pools in a large rock cleft leading directly to the ocean. The springs are located on Vancouver Island at the north end of spectacular Clayoquot Sound in Maquinna Marine Provincial Park.
For years, I had wanted to go to Meares Island to see the huge cedar and spruce trees around which so much controversy was swirling in the 1980’s. During a recent visit to Tofino, I finally had the opportunity to visit these ancient giants, some of which are 1500-2000 years old.
