Wya Point Resort, Vancouver Island’s new year-round eco-luxury destination offers a storm watching experience with its new West Coast Adventure Packaging. Tucked into a lush coastal rainforest next to an exclusive beach, the Ucluelet, BC resort offers a two-night stay in a rustic oceanside yurt, along with adrenaline-pumping surfing and a boating excursion that transports guests to a soak in geothermal hot springs. Wya Point Resort’s West Coast Adventure package celebrates Mother Nature at her best.
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. Wya Point Resort’s expert surf instructors will guide guests 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.
During your stay on the wild west coast, explore clifftop trails which meander through the rainforest and feature panoramic views of Barkley Sound and the Broken Group Islands. Home to secluded sandy coves, clear water and hidden rock pools, the rugged beaches at Wya Point Resort provide endless recreational fun—no matter the season.
