Ucluelet, British Columbia
Ucluelet (pronounced /juˈkluːlət/) is a village (population about 1,700) on the west coast of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. Ucluelet means 'safe harbour' in the indigenous Nuu-chah-nulth (Nootka) language.
It is located at the northern edge of Barkley Sound between two sections of Pacific Rim National Park Reserve: the Broken Group Islands and Long Beach.
Ucluelet is making the transition from a resource-based economy to a tourism-based economy like its neighbor Tofino.
The Wild Pacific Trail, a popular wilderness trail that begins near the mouth of Ucluelet Inlet at Amphitrite Point, follows the rocky headlands north into the Weyerhauser lands, recently rezoned for residential and commercial development.
