Ucluelet

4.3
A haven for surfers on Canada's west coast, the small town of Ucluelet offers rugged, rocky scenery to complement the powerful waves that crash against its shores. Inhabited for at least 4,300 years by indigenous First Nations peoples, the town's economy has traditionally been based on logging and fishing. However, as tourism in Ucluelet grows on the back of excellent conditions for surfing, more and more locals have turned to seasonal, tourism-based work as their main source of income. The town enjoys a relatively moderate climate, with cool summers, mild winters, and high levels of rainfall year-round. Ucluelet is in Barkley Sound.

Where to stay in Ucluelet

People visit Ucluelet to enjoy the area's pristine nature, so most local accommodations can be found outside the town center. Guesthouses, bed and breakfasts, private cottages, and cabins represent the most popular options here, with most guests looking for a coastal retreat rather than a luxury vacation. Coastal views are particularly sought after, but regardless of where you stay, you'll never be far from the beach.
