BC’s coast is dotted with charming seaside towns, each shaped by their unique surroundings and history. Find out how to experience a few of the province’s quintessentially West Coast towns.
UCLUELET, VANCOUVER ISLAND
With ragged shorelines and coastal rainforest at its doorstep, Ucluelet makes for the perfect cozy spring getaway.
Explore the sheltered waters of Ucluelet Harbour with Majestic Ocean Kayaking, or walk along the famous Wild Pacific Trail, where you can witness the waves barrelling in from offshore. Learn about local sea creatures at the Ucluelet Aquarium, or tour the Broken Group Islands with Archipelago Wildlife Cruises for a chance to see whales.
The luxurious Black Rock Ocean Resort makes for a relaxing spa retreat. Cozy up in the rustic Terrace Beach Resort’s rainforest cabins or stay in a secluded yurt near old-growth forest at Wya Point—located on the traditional territory of the Ucluelet First Nation.
