Big Beach

Big Beach is a recreation destination located in the community of Ucluelet, BC, Canada on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. It is the largest public beach destination in the community providing the most services and amenities.

The beach park includes a picnic shelter, some picnic tables, a playground and washrooms. Inland there is an open area with a large grass lawn for blankets and picnics.

Not far away there are a few sitting benches, a trail map and access to the Wild Pacific Trail. The trail is an 8 kilometre hiking trail exploring the coastline of Ucluelet. It was not until 2002 the community created an access trail from Big Beach to the trail.

Big Beach is just that - a big beach park. It is a park situated in a large bay with a good-sized beach. The bay is backed by rock outcroppings and jagged cliffs providing a natural shelter from the winds.

The beach is, both, pebble and sand. Low tides reveal tidal pools and more wet sand. The beach shoreline is always lined with piles of driftwood logs thrown a shore by the west coast storms which batter the coastline every winter.

Activities enjoyed at Ucluelets' Big Beach include sightseeing, birdwatching, storm watching, picnicking, hiking and wildlife watching. Some of the wildlife sightings include bears, eagles, whales and cougars.
