Terrace Beach is in Ucluelet on the west coast of Vancouver Island. It is nestled between the two main sections of the Pacific Rim National park: The Broken Group Islands to the south and Long Beach to the north. Just a short 35-minute drive will find you in the world renowned destination of Tofino.
Neighboring Terrace Beach is the stunning Wild Pacific Trail. It begins at the Amphitrite Point Lighthouse which is near the mouth of the Ucluelet inlet. The trail travels north along the Pacific Ocean coastline through Big Beach Park for a healthy 8 km stretch. The final section extends to Halfmoon Bay in the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve. Most of the trail system consists of a smooth gravel walkway with the occasional set of stairs or boardwalk. Benches are peppered throughout the trail to provide stunning viewpoints of the rock bluffs and ocean vistas. The trail is accessible to all ages and abilities, including wheelchairs in most areas.
Pronounced “Yew-Kloo-Let” but affectionately referred to as “Ukee” by the locals, this quaint fishing village is part of the Nuu-chah-nulth First Nations traditional territory. The name means ‘safe harbor’.
Archaeological findings have indicated settlements dating as far back as 4,300 years ago. Nuu-chah-nulth oral histories date back even further! The town has a fishing village feel and until recently, logging and fishing were the main industries. However, eco-tourism and outdoor adventures are now starting to take the lead. The area offers rainforest hikes, beachcombing, ocean adventures and endless wildlife. Surrounded by 150,000 acres of Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, it is an outdoor enthusiast dream location. Getting here is an approximate two- and half-hour drive from Nanaimo (direct ferry access to Vancouver) and approximately a four-and-a-half-hour drive from Victoria. Originally built as a logging road and converted into something slightly bigger, the drive is a fun, twisty little road through old growth rainforest, over mountains, past lakes and out to the ocean. Alternatively, you can take a stunning 40-minute flight from Vancouver’s South Terminal to Long Beach Airport. Car rentals are available. The Resort Municipality of Ucluelet is situated on the edge of the Wild Pacific Ocean on Vancouver Island, BC. It offers visitors and residents the opportunity to live in and explore one of the world’s most pristine coastlines. A true west coast working harbour, Ucluelet is a place rich in tradition and natural beauty.
The village of Tofino attracts surfers, hikers, nature lovers, bird watchers, whale watchers, campers, fisherman and cyclists. The Tofino area has become one of British Columbia’s top year-round vacation destinations for those who revel in unspoiled wilderness. Vancouver Island’s rugged West Coast is uniquely wildand beautiful. The Pacific Ocean crashes on rocky outcrops and washes over miles of sandy beaches. Magnificent groves of old growth Cedar and Sitka Spruce stand tall over quiet rainforest trails.
Long Beach, on the West Coast, is located just 7 km south of the town of Tofino, 23 km north fromthe town of Ucluelet & literally just steps from the openPacific Ocean and Cox Bay beach. The Tofino area is a paradise for those who love the sea. Whether you
lean toward being in or on the water, or lean towardbeach combing and storm watching, you will not find a better place to unplug and rejuvenate.
Surfers come from all over the world to ride huge breakers onto miles of empty beach. Canoers and kayakers have a choice of exploring the sheltered bays or open coastline and islands beyond. Colonies of Sea Lions sun themselves on the rocks as Killer Whales view them with interest. To the delight of whale watchers, thousands of Grey Whales pass by on their long annual migration from Mexico to Alaska.
Whether this is your first time or you’re a seasoned visitor, Tofino is a magical destination. Close your eyes and imagine standing on the expansive beaches listening to the crashing waves. Envision the sun dipping below the horizon with the most beautiful shades of gold, red and purple with the silhouettes of evening surfers catching their last waves. Nothing compares!
