The Long Beach component of the Park and its 50 km of sand beaches, rugged rocky outcrops and famous 11 km long Long Beach is located just north of Ucluelet. To the south of Ucluelet is located another component of the Park called Broken Group Islands. This is a collection of over 100 unspoiled islands located in beautiful Barkley Sound and is accessible only by boat.
