Wreck Beach. What a place! Some say the most beautiful beach in Vancouver and the most fun! Wreck Beach is a hotbed for hippy activity surrounded by the rugged mountains. Situated near the University of British Columbia campus, Wreck Beach attracts all sorts of people. Nudes are especially welcome and so to are the clothed. Students practice their ball skills and camouflaged men scour the sand with their metal detectors. My friend saw a whale from the shoreline and I myself watched the bald eagles soaring high above. I first came here on a sunny but cold spring day. The nudes were out in force. One man accessorized a woolly hat with a jumper and no underpants! On a hot summer's day, Wreck Beach is party central with groups enjoying boozy picnics, nude vendors selling anything from magic mushies to cold beverages and most of all, everyone having a ball and behaving themselves. And just in case you are wondering, you can get here by the number 99 bus from Broadway or the number 4 bus from Downtown.
