Ucluelet & Tofino At A Glance:

Recreational property buyers are attracted to the communities of Tofino and Ucluelet, situated 40 kilometers apart on Vancouver Island’s west coast, for the rugged natural scenery. The region is known for surfing, whale watching, kayaking, fishing, hiking, camping, beaches and the ancient rainforest that connects the two communities. The temperate climate on the coast allows for year-round access and the two communities provide magnificent vistas of the Pacific Ocean during storm-watching season in the winter. The Long Beach unit connects Tofino and Ucluelet year-round and serves as a beautiful destination within the heart of the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve.
