Why choose between a beach vacation or an inland hiking destination when you can have both? Located on Vancouver Island, Ucluelet is home to surfable beaches, the Wild Pacific Trail and Pacific Rim National Park Reserve. Explore everything this coastal town has to offer, then rest your head at one of these hotels and resorts.

1. Black Rock Oceanfront Resort

The Black Rock Ocean Front Resort allows guests to experience West Coast life with easy access to Vancouver Island beaches and the Wild Pacific Trail. With 133 suites ranging from studios to two-bedrooms, you’ll be comfortable here whether you’re travelling solo or with family. In the winter months, take advantage of the storm-watching package, which includes a pair of binoculars and a Drift Spa voucher in the price of your suite.


2. The Cabins at Terrace Beach

Choose from three different themes to find the perfect cabin for you and your family — oceanfront, forest or spring cove. The cabins give you access to Terrace Beach and the Wild Pacific Trail and if the weather permits, you can learn to surf with Relic Surf Shop and Surf School. Cozy up next to the fireplace on cold and rainy days.


3. The Francis

If you’re looking for something romantic, book a room at The Francis. This adults-only boutique inn has four suites with king size beds, a modern rain shower and even access to a hot tub. Bonus tip: owner and operator Sandra Hinder will give you great local tips for best things to do in the area.


4. The Outside Inn

Surrounded by five acres of rainforest, the Outside Inn is the nature enthusiast’s go-to for restoration after a long day of hiking and surfing. The inn is located across the street from the Pacific Rim National Park and within minutes of surfing beaches. Stay at the Coastal Cottage where you’ll have a full kitchen, private bedroom and a patio with a barbecue.


5. Pluvio

The four rooms at this boutique hotel are simple, elegant and charming. You’ll find locally made art and the furniture is handcrafted by Port Alberni carpenter Chad Miles. Eat at Pluvio’s onsite restaurant for an intimate dining experience then take a walk to the Ucluelet inlet and take in that calming ocean air.
