The condo is on the top floor at the Ridge, a luxury condo development that sits high on a hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Big Beach. The only sound you hear is the waves in this quiet neighbourhood.
Ucluelet's largest beach is across the street and down a quick path. You can bring wood down and have a beach bonfire when it's permitted by the parks board. There is also an 1890's shipwreck on Big Beach to explore. It's an amazing feeling to stand on it and think of how survivors must have felt when it was nothing but forest.
Wild Pacific Trail:
The trail head to the world famous Wild Pacific Trail is just on the side of Big Beach, a quick walk from the Ridge. Within minutes you are deep in nature, surrounded by trees and looking down at the waves crashing on the rocks from high on the trail. Local artists have built unique viewpoint crows nests all along the trail. Hike it for a just short time, or take the 2-3 hour round trip.

The Big Rock hotel is just a quick walk up the street. They have a great restaurant for fine dining and really cool bar/lounge where you can get a drink or order food.
