SEE BC FIRST // We Can’t Wait to Return to This Vancouver Island Campground

We travel-starved and isolated British Columbians should enter into a covenant with one another — that when this nightmare ends we commit to enjoying a local adventure before travelling anywhere else.

We miss this beachfront campsite at Tofino’s Bella Pacifica campground, located right on Mackenzie Beach in a patch of old growth forest. There are about a dozen of them – some better than others – and most are booked long in advance. When you get one of the best sites, the weather is perfect, the fog zone firewood is dry, and your neighbours are quiet, it’s a very special place indeed. We can’t wait to be lulled to sleep by the woodsmoke and waves again…one day.

What are some of your favourite places that you’ll want to hit when normalcy returns? We’re stuck at home too and want to be inspired and uplifted by your shout outs and ideas for travel within BC. Share on Instagram via #seeBCfirst.

We're looking forward to shooting the breeze among the fruit trees up at Joiefarm (with some wine and wood-fired pizza).

This one of our all-time favourite summer drives, the hot asphalt snaking through some of the most dramatic terrain in BC.

Do Your Part and See BC First

When the nightmare of Covid-19 ends let's all commit to enjoying a local adventure before we travel anywhere else.
