Amphitrite Point Lighthouse, Ucluelet

4.5
#5 of 42 in Things to do in Ucluelet
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.

    Old Historic lighthouse on the edge of town. Connects directly with the Wild Pacific Trail. Worth a visit! Fun fact, local TV station has a continuous video webcam pointed at the lighthouse.. smile and wave!

    Pretty lighthouse. Not much to do but scour the rocks surrounding it. Make a point to take the trail around the whole peninsula.

    Worth checking out this little piece of history while on the west coast! Beautiful view and great trails near by.

    Superb location to see a classic lighthouse and the rocky western shores of Canada. A photographer and landscape painter's dream.
