The most beautiful beach in the world… that happens to be a nude beach. Wreck Beach is a little slice of nonconformist heaven twenty minutes from downtown Vancouver, directly below the University of British Columbia, yet almost entirely screened from the city. Vendors peddling delicious food and drinks, textile-free zones, violent games of beerball: Wreck Beach has everything you could want and more. It’s survived erosion, development and attempts at eradication by local politicians. A combination how-to guide, history and oral chronicle of its outspoken defenders, this book tells you everything you wanted to know about Wreck Beach, but were afraid to ask.
