Amenities & Services
This seaside resort town may be small, but its offerings are impressive: restaurants with world-class chefs, upscale hotels, fishing resorts, quaint B&Bs, boutique shops and adventure tour operators.
The district’s most recent additions include the new Ucluelet community centre and the luxurious Black Rock Oceanfront Resort. An expansion is in progress at the Ucluelet Aquarium.
Shopping & Dining
Dining options range from casual eateries to elegant oceanfront dining. Shoppers will find one-of-a-kind treasures in locally owned boutiques and galleries throughout Ucluelet. You won’t see any megastores here now or probably ever. The closest Wal-Mart is over the mountains in Port Alberni, a 1½ hour drive.
Year-round festivals and events celebrate everything from the Pacific gray whale migration to live local music. Ucluelet also has a very active Parks & Recreation program with youth soccer, little league baseball, new multi-use sports fields, a new skate park and new basketball courts.
Schools & Services
Residents of Ucluelet and nearby Tofino share schools and services. Among the two communities you’ll find schools, doctors, dentists, a hospital, medical clinic, libraries, churches, community newspapers and post offices.
