Wreck Beach reviews
There is no "official" parking lot, so you need to get there early mainly on summer to park near the stairs you need to take to reach the beach. I consider the beach a small size so again, it will be crowded on summer after 3 PM. Additionally, a lot of people arrange fire pits and they leave the remaining wood there and you must wear shoes. I has a splinter in my feet twice when shoeless.
a little slice of heaven in Vancouver ... I love how chill this place is and the regulars are so friendly. best place to have an honest conversation with a complete stranger. a body positive sanctuary where you can be authentically yourself. go get your naked on and be free.
