Wreck Beach is both one of the largest and most relaxed beaches in Vancouver. Stretching along the coast of Point Grey, it has marvelous views and is guaranteed to draw crowds. Sections of the beach are clothing optional, but it is 5 miles (8 km) long, so there's plenty of room for all levels of nudity. The gay section here is located to the left as you enter from the stairs. Visitors should be aware that these stairs are steep and can be difficult to climb.
