"Wreck Beach. Sometimes called..." Wreck Beach Tip by DiamondDave

Wreck Beach, Vancouver: 9 reviews and 8 photos


Wreck Beach. Sometimes called UBC Beach
To my knowledge, it is the only 'clothes optional' beach in North America. Even if you're too shy to be in the buff, head down there. Have an 'icy cold Kokanee' (beer), sample the treats from the Watermelon girl or delight on the 'buds' - whatever your fancy, it's all delivered right to your towel by enchanting, butt-naked serving men and women. NOT TO BE MISSED. Oh and hey, leave your camera in your bag!

Address: NW Marine Dr., Vancouver, BC V6T 1Z2, Canada
Directions: It'a little hard to find the first time. But it's down a series of stairs on the South side of UBC campus. Everyone on campus can give you directions if you're not sure.
