Tofino For Two

April 7, 2011

Overcast, rainy days call for bundling up with you honey and walking
along the beach hand-in-hand. If youre on the search for a romantic
getaway, get to Tofino and brave the end of storm-watching season up
close, or create your own action (wink, wink) behind closed doors.


Beach Lodges
original property, Lodge at the Beach, is also known as
the adult-only hide-a-way. The cosy rooms have no distractions like TVs
or phones, but when you do want to emerge back into the (somewhat) real
world, the plush couches and oversized chairs around a large fireplace
in a common great room await. Not to be missed: fresh-baked cookies are
served nightly at 8 p.m. Rooms from $99, Middle Beach Lodge, 400
MacKenzie Beach Rd., Tofino, 250-725-2900,

Whether you need the aphrodisiac or not, start
your candlelit meal at Shelter
with fresh shucked Vancouver Island oysters ($3 each). Afterward,
recreate the classic pet-friendly big-screen romance scene with the
delectable smoked salmon and manila clam linguine ($24). Shelter, 601
Campbell St., Tofino, 250-723-3353,

A couples massage like no other, the Cedar
Sanctuary at the Ancient
Cedars Spa
is a quaint hut just steps from the spa that includes a
fireplace and French doors that open onto the beach for the ultimate
romantic R&R. Couples massage from $300. Ancient Cedars Spa at The
Wickaninnish Inn, 500 Osprey Lane at Chesterman, Tofino, 250-725-3100,
