    Not a typical visitor destination, Wreck Beach is difficult to access (you must hike down a forest path to reach the beach). Worth the hassle? Absolutely. Read more

    Check tide charts if you go right at bottom of Trail 6. Also note where debris from previous tides is located on the sand. You get trapped in certain areas & have to slog through water & rocks.

    Been here a couple times; it's so close to campus! A popular location for friends to get together and sit around a bonfire. Definitely a social atmosphere. Also happens to be clothing-optional.

    Students: take a break & head down Trail #6 at the end of NW Marine Dr. for the most stunning view on campus. Bring swimsuit & a towel and be transported to a world far, far away from your textbooks.

    Prepare to descend a lot of stairs to reach the beach from the entrance at University Blvd. and Marine Dr. They're well worth the climb down and back up!

    Respect the culture, you will be fine. Hide your booze, no canned music, and be friendly. You will have fun, the cops will leave you alone.

    For those who like and feels comfortable in the middle of a bunch of naked people. It's a great place. Beautiful beach!

    Bring plenty of SPF, food and "drinks" a plenty on site, just remember you still have to get up that hill at the end of the day, so everything in moderation!

    Walk down the concrete path five min up the road from wreck beach entrance, past the shacks and the fence to the end of the world!!!

    Main trail stairs: turn right if you like a laid back vibe, turn left for more activity. If you are hung up with nudity go to Kits

    head to the right at the bottom of the stairs at the main beach and walk the coast to find a less 'busy' area.

    The decent is easy, keep your eyes to yourself but it is a hard ascent.

    Best place to go if you prefer hitting up the beach in the buck. :)

    To paraphrase the late, great Douglas Adams: always remember to bring a towel!

    No one judges here, but it WOULD BE NICE if there are more crowds with fit physique.
