Ucluelet is a small community rich in tradition and natural beauty, situated on the Ucluelet Peninsula on the west coast of Vancouver Island. To thoroughly enjoy the spirit of Ucluelet, you’ll want to stay a few nights; we recommend one week. Then, allow yourself enough time to hike Vancouver island’s top-rated Wild Pacific Trail, explore nearby beaches, watch eagles take flight, and enjoy the magnificent sunsets.
Close To The Wild Pacific Trail
The Wild Pacific Trails is one of the top things to do on Vancouver Island. This family-friendly, 9km trail network is the perfect destination for photographers, storm watchers, bird watchers, and hikers of all abilities. Overlooking Barkley Sound and the Broken Group Islands, it’s the ideal place to spend an early morning, afternoon, or catch a sunset.
Close to Beaches
Ucluelet is a place of spectacular, rugged beauty with one of the world’s most pristine coastlines. Just 15 minutes away, you will find the sandy u-shaped shores of Florencia Bay. At Florencia Bay, you will find a constant stream of waves, making it a fantastic location to surf, relax, swim, or beachcombing. Most of the surf comes from groundswells, and the ideal swell direction is from the west. The beach break offers both left and right-hand waves. Travel another 10 minutes, and you will find yourself at Long Beach.
Long Beach spans an extraordinary 16km, and you will be amazed by the amount of life that calls the tidal pools home. As you explore, you will be sure to discover crabs, shells, starfish, sea urchins, and much more. Long beach is a great place to relax, explore, hike, and surf.
Lots of Activities
There is so much to choose from when it’s time to find an activity. So, pick your adventure; wildlife tours, kayaking, surfing, paddleboarding, scenic flights, ziplining, fishing charters, or sunset cruises. In one day, you can take surf lessons on Long Beach, kayak through the Broken Group Islands, and take the family on a wildlife adventure tour.
