Trip Planner: Canada / British Columbia / Vancouver Island / Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District / Barkley Sound / Ucluelet / Amphitrite Point Lighthouse
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.

Amphitrite Point Lighthouse reviews
The lighthouse is simple and the views are interesting. Short walk from the parking area. There is a loop trail that is an easy trek. No really a place to go out of your way, but a pleasant stop. more »
This is not a place to come if you want to learn about the history of this local lighthouse. It’s a place you pass as you enjoy the scenery of the trail. 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!
