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.

  • This is a bit of west coast history that still has importance in the present. Outside viewing only. Go directly by road and a short walk or enjoy the nearby loop trail. Parking for all sized vehicles....  more »
  • Lovely easy walk with great views and stunning scenery. Cannot visit inside light house. Lots of signs with information along the walk  more »
  • Go for the trail. The lighthouse is cute but it’s just an extra. Beautiful walk, gnarled trees, views of the ocean. Definitely worth it!  more »

  • Such a great walk doing the Wild Pacific Trail. Staying in Tofino, we wished it were closer because it was so great. Couple kilometre loop of easy walking on gravel paths, takes you to dozens of little lookouts at beautiful scenes of ocean and nature. So much to see, including the old lighthouse. Loved this and will be back again the next time we visit!
  • Powerful. Pacific coast and pounding waves. Rugged unspoiled beauty. Trek the wild coast trail. Awesome!
  • First time there. Very nice. Views are really great. I like the sound in the distance of one of the bouys. They say in a sign, do you hear the baby whale calling for its Mom, but it's actually just the bouy making the sound.
  • Well maintained, easy loop trail. Mostly level for strollers or mobility issues. Lots of lookouts and benches.
  • The views are good. The lighthouse loop trail is short and an easy walk. There are also plenty of spots to stop and take in the beauty of the ocean. This is definitely one of my favourite places in Ucluelet on a stormy or sunny day.
