Not the biggest or best beach but certainly one that will keep all adults entertained especially during summer. Leave your inhibitions at home and come enjoy the warm waters and hot bodies. :-)

Bad sand quality, and full of cigarette butts. Dirty water -- Wreck gets all the effluent from the Fraser River including the Iona wastewater treatment and god knows what kind of chemicals and fertilizers from the Fraser Valley. I seriously would't swim in that water...More

Whatever pre-conceived notions you have of nudist beaches does not apply here. The atmosphere at Wreck beach is very laid back and cool. People respect each other and just come here and do their own thing - mostly naked. Their is no pressure to strip...More

Almost 500 steps to get there... and of course to come back from. But it's a nice area, people is free to wear whatever they want... even nothing! It's worth it... even just to take a glance... and keep in shape ;-)

I understand the attraction of a place like this -- barren, mostly unspolied clothing-optional beach at the literal end of the landmass. But those 500 steps .. the climb back up poses a serious challenge to anyone with cardiac problems, or simply 30 years past...More

Wreck Beach is quirky, rustic and off the beaten path, especially for those who appreciate a counterculture feel. The hundreds of stairs you must climb down is a bit daunting, but totally worth it! Once there, you're met with an amazing view including Bowen Island...More
