Beautiful site with beautiful views of the water. As for the lighthouse, it is bery small and unimpressive. Not worth the detour. Parking on site. Easy trails.

The lighthouse itself is unmanned now but it's neat to see the views and read the nearby plaques to understand the history. The hike itself around the lighthouse is a good length and not challenging. A must-see while you're in Ucluelet.

The lighthouse itself is fine, though not very tall or interesting. It's what it's connected to that's worth the visit: the lighthouse loop. This trail is part of the Wild Pacific Trail, and is absolutely amazing. It's a loop that goes through the forest and then out along the coast, and it is incredibly well-maintained, with plenty of lookout spots.... More

This is a short ( 4 min) drive from town. An excellent trail goes all the way around the lighthouse area and provides wonderful views in three directions. A great place to watch for sea life, of just take in the raw beauty of the Pacific coast

You can do the trail here as well as just looking at the great view. Take bear spray, though, as they warn of wolves, bears and cougars in the area.

The Amphitrite Point Lighthouse was an easy find in Ucluelet and worth the visit while in town. There's plenty of free parking, paths, and a short easy walk to a wonderful view. The highlight was while there, a former lighthouse keeper and his wife were visiting from Alberta and we heard first hand what life was like living on-site. How... More

We visited this area a few years ago and had to make a quick stop before we headed back to Nanaimo. The hike is a easy short loop back to a large parking lot but we only had time to visit the Lighthouse. There are incredible views and unfortunately we didn't have enough time back be sure to visit and... More

This isn't the nicest looking light house you'll see but it's a lovely scenic hike that's not intense and can be completed by most people. You really don't want to miss this. It's truly a west coast expderience.

Loved this scenic little hike. It is definitely not intense, I walked it in flip flops. We made the little stop on our way out of Tofino, wished we would have had time to do more of the trail.

Not an attractive lighthouse as on the east coast but still interesting to read about it and see the view and crashing waves. If you are unable to walk too far, you can just go from the parking lot to the lighthouse and back and it isn't too strenuous.
