Whilst sandy Long Beach on Vancouver Island's west coast is the region's most famous, the unique beaches of Ucluelet and the southern peninsula are great for hikes and beachcombing. Many of Ucluelet's beaches have access to the Wild Pacific Trail, with its incredible vistas of ocean, forest and islands.
The town of Ucluelet offers waterfront promenades, restaurants, unique shops and galleries, a mini aquarium and a range of accommodation choices.
Highway 4 connecting Tofino & Ucluelet, BC, is undergoing some major construction between June 15 – September 15, 2018. Highway 4 is the only east-west corridor on Vancouver Island that services the region. Upgrades are planned for a 1.5 kilometre stretch at the junction where the road splits between the two popular tourist towns. This upgrade will be challenging for any persons driving to these two areas during the peak season, as there are going to be road delays and closures. There may be no access to the highway between the times of 9:00 PM to 7:00AM, PST, to accommodate construction. Please note this will affect entry into both Tofino & Ucluelet.
