Wreck Beach


It’s a bit of a workout getting down to Vancouver’s legendary clothing-optional beach — look for the steep staircases of Trail 6 at the west end of University Boulevard to find your way to beautiful Wreck Beach (part of Pacific Spirit Regional Park). Come for the beautiful nature views, but please give other beach-goers their privacy. There are often vendors selling snacks and drinks on the beach, but it’s a good idea to come prepared with your own supplies.
