    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.

    No tan line tanning

    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

    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.

    An escape from other busy Vancouver beaches. Remember to be sun safe!

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

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

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

    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.

    There are actually a lot more young people here than I expected. Just don't go staring at them bewbs too much

    The nude beach at Wreck is to be experienced at your own risk. But do try the cookies.

    Don't come here when it's warm and sunny. A nudie beach in that weather.

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

    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!

    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!

    Wear that is.

    Don't be shy - all types come here, and no one judges!

    Great place to watch the sunset.

    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

    It can get a bit nippily ;-)

    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!!!

    J Cuaig · July 2, 2010

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

    Rolf Brulhart · May 26, 2010
  • Jodie L.

    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.
