Wreck Beach is one of North America's great nudist success stories, a quirky mix of musicians, sunbathers, and volleyball players who together form a unique nudist community.

I clearly remember my first naturist experience, and it was at Wreck Beach in 1979. I was 21, had just finished an undergrad degree in eastern Canada, and flew to Vancouver for a visit to meet a buddy who had a summer job near UBC. We went to Wreck Beach one day (which turned into 2 visits), and it was exhilarating and wonderful at the same time. I'm almost 55 now, and have embraced naturism since then.

Best friend introduced me to Wreck Beach 12 years ago. Have been numerous times over the years, and enjoy the folks we have gotten to know. Now we're members at the Van Tan Club N. Van (a beautiful place)for two years. Wife n' I just got back from a month there in our RV... It was a life changer for me 12 years ago, and I've never looked back. Clothes are way over rated! Bonus, my bride loves the lifestyle as well. Judy, key spokesperson for Wreck has done a fantastic job...
Note: The "Journey" down to and up from Wreck will leave you breathless. ;)

The regulars were very gracious and welcoming. They policed themselves and other bathers politely and appropriately. My wife felt so comfortable after talking with the regulars, that she too embraced the lifestyle and let her "sisters" take a deep breath.
The afternoon reached its pinnacle when I participated in beerball. Naked men contesting in sport with smiles and laughter.I wish that I could live nearby so as to become an expert at beerball. An experience that makes a lifetime.

Wreck Beach is unlike any other clothing-optional beach. It is a truly unique experience. Yes there are a lot of stairs to go down and go back up at the end of the day. Take your time; it is well worth it. People are clothed and naked in equal proportions.

My wife and I and two good Canadian friends visited Wreck Beach last year. It was great. Good walking beach and we never felt uncomfortable. Well-behaved crowds. We will return.

A lifelong naturist and having read about and watched videos of Wreck Beach I decided to break into my stash of air miles and fly 300 miles to spend a weekend on Wreck Beach. No one ever mentioned the climb down.
I'm 68 and getting back up took three rest stops. It was a gloriously hot weekend and I loved every minute I was there and was happy to be counted among the many naturists and non-naturists who bared it all for the Skinny-Dip count.
