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.

  • Red and white lighthouse, in a short, solid style, set on a rocky point. You can scramble on the rocks and stand on a rocky Beach area, but cannot get inside. The Wild Pacific Trail is definitely worth the walk, though. Be sure to explore all the view-points along the way!
  • What a great vista! You really feel the enormity of the ocean. Easy parking, short walk. Plenty of spots for quiet contemplation. Rigorous terrain! if you don't hang back and venture outwards.
  • Beautiful wide trail along the coast. Many people walk down on the rocks. Bring proper shoes if you'd want to do that. The trail itself is dirt and safely tucked in from the edge, so great for kids. Lots of viewing points and lots of photoops.
  • May27/2018 I have been coming here for many years,this place grows on you because of the beauty of the ocean and shore line. The views here are endless.No matter if it’s a clear day or not,the more wind the better,you get to see better wave action.An easy walk along the trail will take you along the waters edge,the views are fantastic. Have fun and play safe.
  • Great location to look at the beautiful Pacific ocean. Free parking located about 1 minute walk from the light house. Connects to the Wild Pacific Trail which is an easy walk with lots of benches to sit and enjoy the views!
