Best on an low incomming tide. Nice beach break with good walls. It is possible to get some big rides here.only park in gravel praking lot, or owner of Pacific Rim Resort will tow your car.
When it's really big it's pretty hard to get out - try North Chesterman's instead.
Very steep at low tide.
Better with upcoming tide.
Locals from Tofino are all over this spot.
Nice glassy rides can be found at both ends of the protected bay along the sides. Also very good A frames in the middle.
Rosies Bay is just north of here it also breaks well but requires a rocky entry.
Can get a little crowded when there's a nice swell in the summer, but it's never too crowded since it's a pretty big beach.
Really nice wave.

sharks - i laughed at the guy who is scared of sharks here. white sharks don't like the canadian cold water coastline. they only come up to oregon and very rarely reach washington coastline. there have only been a couple attacks in washington in history. nothing has ever been seen/recorded in the tofino area.

cox bay can rip - i was just in the area it was good (6 ft and calm winds) when cox isn't going try incinerator rock just down the road it gets sick there also chesties (a little finicky but can get good when others aren't) in general a real nice area people crap on about localism but i have never had a problem in the 6 or 7 times i've surfed round there also neah bay is cool in washington just go to the pub there, buy the locals a round (or two) and you'll have no probs, sick waves round there
