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.

  • 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 »
  • This is a great place to visit for the history, and to watch and feel the powerful waves crashing on the rocks at the bottom of the lighthouse  more »
  • So, its a light house on a rock. But the view is nice. Dont expect to be able to get in the light house, it is closed.  more »

  • An absolutely stunning place. Wonder sights and sounds of nature, but to feel the sheer power of the Pacific Ocean barreling down on you! Wow! A must see. Beautiful lighthouse and point great surrounding walk.
  • The staff were friendly and fun to talk to. I had the turkey, cranberry and brie toasted sandwich which was to die for. The breakfast tea was great too.
  • Gorgeous walk with amazing scenic viewpoints! Probably one of the best coastal-views that I have ever seen combined with refined pathways that are easily accessible. lt also includes descriptive signage about the lighthouse, as well as nautical factoids.
  • The hike to get there is fantastic, you cannot go to Ucluelet and not walk this trail. Everywhere you look at is beautiful, with pine trees, cliffs, beaches, clear waters, huge waves, mountains, islands, haze, sun, rain, everything at the same time!
  • Beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean and a fairly easy hike through the trees. Would highly recommend checking this out while in Ucluelet.

Where to stay in Ucluelet
