This iconic Amphitrite Lighthouse, south of the town of Ucluelet, guards the northern entrance to Barkley Sound and overlooks the Broken Group Islands. This point provides stunning panoramas in true West Coast style. The ragged black rocks and wind swept trees offer a dramatic backdrop, showcasing “Life on the Edge,” as Tourism Ucluelet describes the area.
Along the trail, spruce and cedar-framed platforms, provide viewing points, as waves crash upon the rocks below.
There is a parking lot along Coast Guard Road and a smaller lot at the end of the road just before a short gravel trail to the lighthouse.
