Ride the waves or just soak up the good vibes—these surf towns welcome all comers.

Tofino, Canada

3 of 16

British Columbia draws serious skiers and oenophiles, and surfers, too, have come to adore B.C.—especially Tofino, on the west coast of Vancouver Island. The 2013 Rip Curl Pro surf competition shredded here in June. The rustic buildings around Main and Campbell streets are worth a glance. Shelter Restaurant is replenished daily by Tofino’s fishermen, and locals gather in the bar to watch Vancouver Canucks hockey. Eagle Aerie Gallery displays the works of award-winning Canadian artist Roy Henry Vickers.
