Amphitrite Point Lighthouse, Ucluelet

4.5
Visit Amphitrite Point Lighthouse, an early 20th-century lighthouse that today acts as a local landmark and symbol of the town. Located on the Ucluelet peninsula, the whitewashed beacon displays a distinctive squat form and occupies a scenic position on the coast, offering extensive ocean views. An original wooden lighthouse was built on the site in 1906, in response to the shipwreck of the Pass of Melfort a year before. Destroyed by waves during a storm in 1914, the wooden structure was replaced by the current lighthouse in 1915.

  • I spent a few days watching the wave action after a wet and windy few days. the tides were extra high and the waves for at times about 9 meters high. .  more »
  • I've seen a lot of lighthouse and this one is not overly special in anyway - but there's a nice, short hike and a few places to sit and enjoy the ocean.  more »
  • My husband and I spent a few hours scrambling over rocks and watching the stormy ocean. The lighthouse is pretty underwhelming, but you feel like you're at the edge of the world and the scenery around...  more »

  • Beautiful view of Pacific Ocean! I just love spend hours looking and recording at the waves crashing on the rocks! Such a nice place to see the sunset!
  • This place is a beauty! Great sunsets, big waves but a fair amount of people. Trails are super easy
  • A very cool piece of coastal history on Vancouver Island with a visit to this lighthouse now well over 100 years old. Beautiful year round but to experience during a big storm swell and huge waves crashing on the rocky shoreline will make a memory of a lifetime.
  • A very pleasant walk around the point, through the forest. Beautiful views of the inlets to the north and the Broken Islands to the south. Highly recommended
  • Very nice walk along the Uculet coast line. Fresh air, incredible seascapes and a well maintained trail.
