Proceed north on Hwy 1, then Hwy 19 past Nanaimo, to the Hwy 4 Exit to Port Alberni. Follow the signs to Ucluelet/Tofino. 1 ¼ hours past Port Alberni you will reach the Tofino/Ucluelet junction on the West Coast of the Island. Turn left on the Tofino/Ucluelet Highway .
Once in Ucluelet
The Highway turns into Peninsula Road as you drive through Ucluelet. Continue south past the Co-op, Schools, and Little Beach. Your next road on the right will be Reef Point Road, leading to the BeachEstates. Follow straight ahead to the cul-de-sac to find unforgettable He-Tin-Kis Lodge.
You should always check the weather at www.theweathernetwork.com and road conditions before leaving as the road to the west coast is windy as you drive through steep mountain passes.
