Wya Point Resort is located on the west coast of Vancouver Island. It is a sure sign of change in this very picturesque region. If you know anything about the area you know it was nothing but a shaggy surf town. However, in the last few years it has evolved into a region tourists love to visit. The addition of Wya Point Resort is one of the main reasons so many people are now visiting the region. It added a whole new element that was missing before.
Over the last few years this region has slowly opened to tourists. It started off with a small campground that was built into the rainforest. This campground was a few short steps to the beach. After that they went on to build a series of yurts. The purpose of these yurts was to appeal to those who prefer the glam over camping. The circular tents, which happen to be permanent, include everything from a fireplace to power. And the views…they will leave you speechless.
The most recent addition was the Wya Point development. If you are looking for something a little rustic you will love this place. Its rustic yet you will still feel pampered. All power at the resort comes from generators. If you want water you will get it from a bottle. And if you need your daily Facebook fix you can get it from a Wi-Fi connection that’s a bit spotty. You won’t be able to use your cellphone as you will be way beyond cell phone range.
If you love to surf this is the place you want to be. You will find surfboards draped all over bicycles everywhere you look. When compared to other nearby resorts you will find Wya Point to be very quiet . It has connections to the First Nations which is another reason it attracts so many people.
The tourists come for three things. Good waves, awesome whale watching and some of the best food you will find anywhere. Be sure to check out Tofino’s Spotted Bear Bistro. The halibut is unbelievable! When you add all of this to the amazing people in the region you will never want to leave.
