The Best Places for Storm Watching in BC

With colder weather moving in, storm season is well underway in British Columbia, and there is no shortage of prime storm-watching locations along the province’s West Coast. This is the season for spectacular dramatic skies, wild rain, and big surf. Indigenous properties offer a front-row storm-watching experience, from hotels near the well-known surf town of Tofino to remote lodges along the rugged coastline of the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve.

Tin Wis Resort is located on preserved Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation land along the south side of Tofino, nestled in the protected cove of MacKenzie Beach. The resort is renowned for providing the perfect vantage point for storm-watching. Guests can stroll the beach and enjoy the exhilarating winds of the wild West Coast or choose to sip on a hot beverage from the comfort of the cozy suites while the winter surf unfolds.
