With direct access to the private beaches within the Ucluth Eco Resort, the Wya Point Yurts have full amenities including summer kitchens, barbecues, fireplaces, wrap-around cedar decks, oceanfront beach access and cedar lounge chairs. For those looking for a more luxurious experience, the Lodges at Wya Point offer deluxe accommodation in self contained, architect-designed lodges complete with fireplaces, modern kitchens, spectacular ocean views and walk-on beach access at Ucluth Beach.

Upon arrival at Wya Point Resort, unwind in your private beachfront yurt. The platform tents are perfectly suited to those wishing to connect with nature while having access to key amenities and offer spectacular views of the private beach and Pacific Ocean beyond. Cozy up to the fire in the comfort of your beautiful yurt as the sound of crashing waves lulls you into a restful sleep.

For surfing newbies who wish to hit the waves when the beach is less busy, fall is the perfect time of year. At the Wya Point Surf Shop expert surf instructors will guide you through an outstanding wilderness surfing experience on the shores of Pacific Rim National Park Reserve – the place to surf in Canada. After a morning of surfing, pick up lunch to go at the Wya Surf Shop Café.

After a satisfying lunch, sit back and enjoy incredible views on an 80-minute boat ride, then disembark at a trailhead which winds through an old growth cedar forest to Hot Springs Cove. The geothermal springs come out of the earth at 120°F, cascading down a waterfall into a series of soaking pools naturally cut out of the surf rocks. After a morning in the surf, it’s the perfect place to soothe tired muscles.

For dinner, retreat to Kwisitis Feast House, Wya Point Resort’s new beachfront restaurant that celebrates local ingredients and the traditional foods of the Yuu-tluth-aht First Nation. While enjoying the ocean view, linger over a delightful lunch of dishes such as hot smoked salmon, fragrant fresh bannock, crab legs with drawn garlic butter, halibut and chips, and Dungeness crab club.

    We’ve heard about Wya Point, but haven’t stayed there yet. Looks like we should! Ucluelet traditionally was the “ugly sister” to Tofino (hipper, more deluxe lodges, loads more restaurants). But that’s changing. The Wild Pacific Trail is a spectacularly scenic walk.
