Wreck Beach Vancouver

Wreck Beach Vancouver is unique among the area beaches—it's a gorgeous destination as well as the first Vancouver BC nudist beach. It is over three miles of absolutely breathtaking sand and surf that stretches from the Musqueam Reserve to Spanish Banks West, ending not far from Locarno Beach and Jericho Beach. Around a half of a million people visit Wreck Beach each and every year, and it is not uncommon for upwards of 15,000 people to descend upon the beach over the course of a full day during the peak travel and tourist season. If this sounds like it is right up your alley, you may even want to consider booking one of the hotels near Wreck Beach.

The beauty of Wreck Beach Vancouver cannot be overstated. It runs along a broad promontory that is covered with lush vegetation and gorgeous forest atop a 200-foot cliff. The sand is fine and soft and there are a wide range of public facilities should you need washrooms, showers, or even just a place to sit down and picnic. You are sure to witness nature in all of its beauty at this Vancouver BC nudist beach, from the population of blue herons and exotic parrots, to eagles, kingfishers, and many more. The forested cliffs provide a perfect habitation for many of these birds that then fish in the bay to survive. It is a most memorable and enchanting place to enjoy the beauty of outdoor Vancouver. If you are not averse to the clothing-optional rule, then you should consider paying this beach a visit. If so, book your hotels near Wreck Beach as far in advance as possible. Rooms book up and availability is never a guarantee during the peak spring and summer months. Some of the best accommodations within close distance of the hotel include the Oceanside Hotel and the Best Western Sands.
