Wreck Beach, Vancouver

Musqueam Reserve to Spanish Banks West
Point Grey
Vancouver , British Columbia
view web site ›'s insider take:

Canada's largest nude beach has become a mecca for an estimated 100,000 sun worshippers determined to avoid tan lines each summer. Officially, the 3.6-mile stretch of sand and rocks stretches from the Musqueam Reserve to Spanish Banks. On the northern flank, you find a greater concentration of gay men. The central stretch, removed from the water, is Vendor's Row, an ad hoc food court of falafels, empanadas, and cool drinks. There's often a good supply of cold beer and wine, too. On Wreck's southern edge, volleyball nets, boogie boards, Frisbees, and old hippies mix together happily. A strict code of conduct is upheld by the regulars who want to keep their stretch of sand peaceful and hassle-free, so don't come here to gawk and giggle.—Kasey Wilson
