You have not seen all Vancouver has to offer until you've enjoyed a day at Wreck beach (summer....yes). Located near UBC on the tip of the land, the scenery is amazing. The beach has incredible life and activity. If you've never been to a clothing optional beach before then then this is a great beach to start with. You'll see every form of clothing optional.

Spent an entire day there in early July, 2013. In fact it was my last full vacation day in Vancouver before flying to Toronto for a few days, then back home. It was also the only day for which the weather was awesome. Took lots of photos of the area including a Great Blue Heron grazing around the waters. Lots of amenities including food stands, small beach stores and friendly beachgoers!

I have so many amazing memories from this beach. Yes it's a nude beach, if you go in the summer you will probably see bodies of all shapes and sizes, but if anything it's a positive reminder that we're just people with bodies!
Once you've got over the naked people it is truly one of the most beautiful Canadian beaches! Gorgeous views, very calm atmosphere during quiet times and during the summer a very fun, lively place to go with friends and also a great place to make some new ones! There are guys selling margaritas and beers discretely along the beach in the summer and the last few times I was there there were naked people serving up very tasty burgers and fries!

I love Wreck Beach. Of course, from time to time, you'll get those annoying people playing their music too loudly, or the old guy wearing nothing but socks and sandals walking by you one too many times, but the general vibe is GREAT. Wreck Beach attracts so many different kinds of people - you're almost guaranteed to meet someone interesting. In the summer months, you'll find yourself rummaging through piles of imported clothing from India and Thailand, eating a veggie burger prepared by the nude chef, and being offered everything from beer to LSD. If you're shy, you might think this is not your place, but give it a try, perhaps it will help you open up to being in your natural state infront of others. No one can deny swimming naked is a wonderful feeling - especially when you're surrounded by big mountains and cedar trees!

Wreck Beach is very popular clothing optional beach situated in Vancouver. This offers picturesque views with great ambience to enjoy. The water of the beach is crystal clear, which is surrounded by the sand. Beach is the place that offers quality time, which you can spend with your lover and know about each other. We found this place quiet relaxing and peaceful. People of older age also and enjoy there with their partner. Moreover, there are several options there, where you can eat and purchase things to protect your skin from sun. You will find vendors selling food, drinks, sunscreen, clothing and more beach stuff at affordable price. This is the nice place to visit and spend some proper and quality time with your loved ones.
