Slip into island time

Sitting on the west coast of Vancouver Island, Ucluelet is Tofino’s smaller yet just as enchanting neighbor. It embodies the island’s laidback lifestyle, with friendly locals and plenty of cafés and craft stores to explore. Most of the action is centered around the harbor, which is lined with a handful of Ucluelet vacation rentals. This means you can step out of your condo and straight onto the lively Peninsula Road strip. Ucluelet is also a jumping-off point to some of Vancouver Island’s best outdoor activities. Whether you want to fish, surf, or gaze at grizzly bears, this pint-sized town serves up big adventures.
