  • 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 »
  • Love wreck beach as it offers great views of the surrounding area. In the summer there are a lot of young people and a number of natural wearers. Dogs are permitted also.  more »
