Popular Clothing-Optional Beach

Canadians pride themselves on being more open and liberally minded than the old-fashioned conservative crowd. And this is especially the case on the west coast. Vancouverites celebrate life and diversity with zest, and Wreck Beach is one of the most popular local outdoor hangouts.

Of course "hangout" conjures different visual concepts here. Many people consider nude or clothing optional beaches to revolve around stereotypes of modern hippies, drum circles, and strange-named beachcombers wreaking of patchouli and side alley herbs. But that's not what you'll find here.

Wreck Beach is in its purist form, a beach. It's meant for personal freedom and enjoyment. All are welcome, respected, and never pushed or prompted to go beyond their comfort zone.

Utrip Tips

*This is, in case you couldn't tell, a nude beach. Feel free to stay clothed or not. Just don't be creepy.
