  • A lovely stretch of beach which is quite isolated given its location in Vancouver. The walk down is ok but the stairs back up are a killer.  more »
  • This is Vancouver's nude beach. Sun reaches it after 10 am. There are no vendors here. Privacy is respected. The stairway approach is steep so take it easy. Great place to watch teh sunset.  more »
  • A long way down through old growth forest and onto a tree littered beach. A nudest beach if you want. Very atmospheric in March. No bathing today. A nice vista when on beach  more »
