Escape the city and discover this serene oasis near Tofino. These BC hot springs are only accessible by boat or plane—making them the most magical local getaway.

Hot Springs Cove is a hidden gem nestled in Clayoquot Sound of Maquinna Marine Provincial Park—just 30 km northwest of Tofino.

Remote and rustic—two of the best things a hot springs pool can be. The spring water flows down a cliff into a series of small rock pools below. Take a dip in one of the hot springs to relax in nature. The pools range in temperature from 109 degrees Celsius to 50 degrees Celsius.

To reach the pools, you first embark on an easy 1.5 km trek through the old growth forest.
