The first thing you need to do is decide how you are going to travel. The Tofino Airport is located 20 minutes from the resort if you wish to fly direct. If you prefer to drive, there are several ferry routes to Vancouver Island. If you wish to leave the driving to someone else, there are bus or limousine services available.
If you wish to explore Vancouver Island you can also fly to Victoria, Nanaimo or Comox and drive from there.

Driving to Reef Point Cottages
Once you are on Vancouver Island, you will need to drive to the resort. The Island Highway runs the entire length of Vancouver Island from Victoria to Port Hardy along the east coast of the island. The route to the West Coast is via Hwy 4 with an exit just north of Parksville.
Depending on your arrival to Vancouver Island, proceed north on Hwy 1 (from Victoria) and then Hwy 19 past Nanaimo to the Hwy 4 Exit to Port Alberni. Drive through Port Alberni and continue to follow the signs to Ucluelet/Tofino. 1 ¼ hours past Port Alberni you will reach the Tofino/Ucluelet junction on the West Coast of the Island. Turn left on the Tofino/Ucluelet Highway with only 8 kilometres to go.
This Hwy turns into Peninsula Road as you drive through Ucluelet. Continue south past the Co-op and upon reaching the new development of Reef Point Beach Estates on the right, you will encounter Reef Point Cottages on the left. The check-in center is at the corner of Peninsula Road and Boardwalk Boulevard. See you there.
You should always check the weather and road conditions before leaving as the road to the west coast is windy as you drive through steep mountain passes.
