Wreck Beach Vancouver

Wreck Beach – (Optional) nudist beach!

Yeah, Wreck Beach is an optional nudist beach. But that is not the only selling point for it; Wreck Beach is one of the longest and most relaxed sandy beaches in Vancouver, making it fun to have a relaxing walk and a picnic on a warm summer day.

The beach is located near the UBC school, so it’s drawing much of the university crowd. During summer, I like taking my frisbee there and playing in the water.

The beach is a 5-minute walk from the University of British Columbia, so it is very easy to reach from any part of Vancouver. You have to walk down a huge staircase to reach this beach though. You will hate me on your way back if you don’t like stairs.

And, as already mentioned, it is an optional nudist beach, if you’re planning to get a tan!

After the beach, there are some pubs in the University you can hit and relax! Summer or winter, on a sunny day, this beach is awesome!
