Wreck Beach covers almost 8kms in the Pacific Spirit Regional Park and is currently North America’s largest clothing-optional beach. Many visitors are surprised to learn that the trailhead for the beach is only 15 minutes from Downtown gay Vancouver.
While the main section of the beach is generally visited by the general public including families, the area accessed by Trail #7 is mostly frequented by members of the gay community.
Because this beach does not have any official vendors and requires a short hike to get to, definitely pack all the essentials for the day, from sunscreen, towels, water, and food. Depending on the day, the beach accessed by Trail #6 (a 20 minute walk on the beach from the beach of Trail #7) may also contain more queer beach goers.
