The Village of Ucluelet on the southern peninsula of Vancouver Island offers several beautiful beaches that are popular for hiking, surfing, beachcombing, storm watching, whale watching, and picnics. A short walk from town and connected to the Wild Pacific Trail, Big Beach is a blissful sand and volcanic rock beach for relaxing, watching sunsets and enjoying incredible coastal views. The beach also has a gazebo and sheltered picnic area near the trailhead. Also located along the trail, Little Beach is a small sheltered beach with amazing views of the shoreline and a British Columbia Heritage Site where archaeologists found remains of the old First Nations. Near Amphitrite Point lighthouse at the south end of Peninsula Road, Terrace Beach is a quiet sandy beach set among trees adjacent to Wild Pacific Trail. A 15-minute walk north of Ucluelet, Fletchers Beach is a beautiful secluded beach that is reached from the trail across from Fletchers Cove.
