Lighthouse Tourist Spot
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.

  • Right next to the sea with a beautiful view, nice place to take pictures in the evening. Easy access via the wild pacific trail (at about 1 km).  more »
  • The lighthouse has a history - must see when you're in Ucluelet. Very accessible by car, you can park 100 meters from the lighthouse.  more »

  • This is a breathtaking place. It was very windy though. But very beautiful specially before sunset. There are very nice trails called wild pacific trail
  • 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.
