  • There are 500 stairs to get to and from this beach. There is a nice view. The beach is certainly unique.  more »
  • Back in the sixties this beach was famous because it was one of North America's few nudist beaches. It is harder to get to than Vancouver's other beaches so it is less busy.  more »
