I've seen a lot of lighthouse and this one is not overly special in anyway - but there's a nice, short hike and a few places to sit and enjoy the ocean.

My husband and I spent a few hours scrambling over rocks and watching the stormy ocean. The lighthouse is pretty underwhelming, but you feel like you're at the edge of the world and the scenery around it is beautiful

This is a great place to visit for the history, and to watch and feel the powerful waves crashing on the rocks at the bottom of the lighthouse

So, its a light house on a rock. But the view is nice. Dont expect to be able to get in the light house, it is closed.

I really enjoyed watching the sunset here tonight. Gorgeous rocks with waves splashing against them and even a snowy owl flying by. Magic.

Canada has hundreds of lighthouses, but this one is underwhelming and disappointing. No-one appears to spend more than 30 seconds looking at it. The best bit is the walk and the view of the sea - don't miss it!

Every few years we get out to Ukee and this is one of our favourite places on the whole island. Great walks and amazing scenery.

This lighthouse is over 100 years old and is monumentally set on a most western hard soil of Canada. From here all 180 degrees is clear Pacific at least 4500Km before any other soil. This place is full of good energy even in the vicinity...More

This was our first exploration trip around Ucuelet and it was perfect. The lighthouse itself has lots of history and is easy to access and the trail around it is fantastic. My husband's favorite part of the trip was climbing along some of the rocks...More

No words to describe it. A must see, amazing seeing the waves crash on the rocks. Some info to read about the Lighthouse and it's surroundings which is very interesting! Easy to get to with kids and older guests. Highly recommend!
