The first weekend in March will be one I never forget. I finally got to experience Tofino for the first time and with my best friends! It was a trip I was beyond excited to put together and I felt like I was in a dream the whole time it was incredible! We were all amazed at how lucky we got with the weather, we had warm beautiful sunshine the whole trip and considering it was supposed to be storming all weekend we were really excited for the sun.
My best friends Anneke, Blaire, Sarah and I went up for a 4 day girls weekend. We all really needed a fun break to forget about school and spend some quality time together. I was so excited to work with Pacific Sands Resort for our stay, I had never been to Tofino so I was only going off photos I had seen, and my friends raving reviews. All my friends had been before, Blaire was in Tofino constantly grown-up and Anneke and Sarah are from Port Alberni so they are a short drive to get to Tofino.
We left Nanaimo after our classes on Thursday and of course being girls we were a bit behind schedule trying to pack a few extra things, so once we got to Tofino it was dark out, but I was so excited to wake up in this beautiful room the next morning looking out at the ocean. It was a pretty magical way to wake up to say the least.
I honestly can’t get over how amazing this place is. We stayed in a 2 bedroom Beach House and it was Perfect for the 4 of us, we had a full kitchen, 2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a stunning living room and fireplaces in the bedroom and living room. It was so cozy and fun we loved having the space to relax and hang out without feeling cramped up in one room. Not to mention the main bedroom has the most amazing tub, it sits elevated over the rest of the room so you can look out the windows, I had a bath every night and it was heaven!
I loved how most mornings we would all end up in Anneke and my’s bed to laugh and talk and try to decide what we wanted to do that day. It was honestly the best time to refresh ourselves and let go of any stress we had.
Pacific Sands is located on Cox Bay and wow what a great location, it is great for surfing so Sarah was able to get out surfing twice, and let me get some epic drone footage! We were there the last weekend of storm season so we really were expecting any kind of weather but it was so warm and sunny the whole time it felt like spring time.
One little thing I loved about Pacific Sands was the rain jackets that are in each beach house, perfect for stormy days. And while I’m not complaining about the amazing sunshine we had, they were such cute jackets we couldn’t resist wearing them one day while walking around the beach and sure enough they made for the cutest photos! Seriously this entire resort is photo location heaven!
We took so many amazing photos on this trip I warned the girls they might get fed up of how many photos I take, but honestly we all love how many amazing photos we have to remember that trip!
We loved spending our evenings around the fireplace chatting, and one night we went out the the beach and watched the stars, it really is magical when the stars are so clear and bright, it was a fun 20 minutes before we were really cold and went inside.
On the resort grounds there is the Surfside Grill, and oh my gosh I loved this cute beachy grill, and the food was really good to! The perfect spot to grab lunch, or go in the evening and sit around the fire pits!
Also don’t forget to check out the video of our trip, and subscribe to my channel because there will be more Tofino videos in the coming weeks!
We always did something really fun during the day, but I was always excited for sunset, nothing gets me like a good sunset. The first night we played around with photos and videos, and I couldn’t contain my excitement for the amazing images I was seeing on the camera. It was so beautiful to laugh, play, and watch the sun go down.
While Sarah and Blaire are both into surfing, Anneke and I liked to pretend that we were, actually we just wanted to use Sarah’s board for photos! Thanks Sarah!! I am loving these cute photos we got, and the crazy looks we got for being in bathing suits on the beach in winter.
If you are still reading thank you!! I know this is a monster on a post and there are lots of photos! But how can I hide so many amazing photos from you! I want to give a big thank you to Avenue PR and Pacific Sands for the most amazing girls weekend and one I think we will all cherish forever! I also can’t thank my friends enough for being the best people in the world. I love you girls so much <3
