Family Friendly Tofino Resort
Crystal Cove Beach Resort is a family friendly resort and we strive to cater to the younger members of the family as much as the adults. We have an adventure playground made of “useable art” that is always popular with kids of all ages. It includes a climbing apparatus with slide, a tire swing, horse swings made from tires, a log teeter-totter, a surf board on springs, and a climbing wall with a tunnel underneath.
Check out our tree house cabins with a kid’s tree house out back for playing or sleeping. Ask us about cots and sleeping bags for the kids to use for their overnight adventures in summer. Our rainforest cabins are the only cabins with outdoor fire pits that are perfect for family time around the camp fire in the evenings. S'more kits are available from the office in summer, and be sure to pick up a couple of our roasting sticks. These sticks are made locally by a retired gentleman and are perfect for roasting marshmallows or wieners over the fire. For a truly special experience, small fires are allowed on Mackenzie Beach away from the cabins and below the high tide line - your kids will fondly remember those beachside s'mores for a lifetime!
Cabin and RV park guests staying at Crystal Cove on selected weekends during the spring and summer months will enjoy our "Kids at the Cove" family activities such as Easter egg hunts, pancake breakfasts, scavenger hunts, nature explorations, and more. If all of this isn’t enough to keep the kids occupied, you can always venture down to the beach. Mackenzie Beach is protected by several small islands, which means it’s the only beach in town with smaller waves that are perfect for the kids to play in. Kids can dig in the sand and build sand castles, paddle in the surf and run along an almost 1km stretch of sand. Older kids will have fun trying their hand at stand-up paddle boarding or skimboarding. The whole family is sure to enjoy the amazing colours as the sun sets into the ocean each night.
