What We Love

The dramatic and iconic black cliffs of Ucluelet. The soothing serenity of sea, sand, sky and storm. You can't help but become part of the landscape at Black Rock. Created by the pounding surf of the Pacific Ocean, Vancouver Island’s outpost is edged by miles of winding coastal trails and pristine sandy beaches, secluded coves, rocky headlands and intertidal areas. This coastline boasts some of the most spectacular beaches in the world and offers unique beachcombing, hiking, picnicking and storm watching opportunities. Feel sand between your toes and marvel at the ocean stretching to the horizon. The floor-to-ceiling windows in the spacious suites beckon nature indoors while the balconies put you at one with nature. If it's not too chilly, it's worth leaving those balcony doors open at night so you can fall asleep to the sound of ocean waves.
