Well worth the trek out all the way out to Wreck! I've been saying for years that Wreck is the happiest place in the world! Wreck is not for the modest however: while there are varying degrees of nudity, it is first and foremost a nude beach. If you're comfortable with this, please do yourself a favour and check out Wreck! Vancouver's most eclectic flock to Wreck's pristine shores each day as soon as temperatures allow: hula hoopers and skim boarders litter the shore, hot dog stands pepper the tree line, and in between people of all walks of life laugh and chat and enjoy the sun of Vancouver's best beach.
There’s something for everyone in Vancouver, and Wreck Beach is the perfect spot for those who prefer to wear their birthday suit. More than just a nude beach, this section of Spirit Park is also part of the University of British Columbia Endowment Lands and the Westward facing point offers stunning views of the Gulf Islands and Vancouver Island.Note that beach access is via a very long staircase fashioned of wood and mud, so this may not be the best option if you’ve got shaky knees.
Wreck Beach is Vancouver's only nude beach. It's also the nicest beach in all of the lower mainland. If you aren't put off by nudity make sure you check out this gem. The vibe is easy going and its always a few degrees hotter on this beach as its tucked away into a cove.While you're there try one of the fresh coconuts, bbq, and pick up a cool hippy blanket from one of the beach shops!*note: you do not need to be naked to be on the beach, just know that you will see naked people.
