The Wild Side Guide to Vancouver Island's Pacific Rim

Long Beach, Tofino, Ucluelet, Port Alberni, Nitinat & Bamfield
"The Pacific Rim is my home. We now receive more than one million visitors every year, and I have come across many who came out here and missed out on some of the key west coast experiences. With this new guidebook, I hope to give you an inside look at the Pacific Rim—a little bit of background and history to enrich your visit, as well as some of my own hints about favourite places, where to go and what to see."
—Jacqueline Windh

Book Description

The Pacific Rim of Vancouver Island's wild west coast, with its picturesque coastal villages of Tofino and Ucluelet and expansive wave-washed sands of Long Beach, has become one of Canada’s top tourist destinations. In The Wild Side Guide to the Pacific Rim, longtime Tofino resident, wilderness traveller, author and photographer Jacqueline Windh shares her secrets about travelling around the region. Whether the reader is in search of a campsite under the stars or a five-star hotel, the locals' favourite diner or fine international cuisine, mellowing out on a quiet beach walk or being pampered in a world-class spa—Jacqueline Windh has it covered.

The Wild Side Guide to the Pacific Rim provides necessary facts and information on how to get there, where to stay, what to do, where to eat, as well as the little stories and inside scoops that will enrich any visitor’s experience. With Windh's beautiful photography accompanying the text, this useful guide will serve as an inspiration to visit and an enduring reminder to return to this beautiful place again.
