Wreck Beach is a clothing-optional beach located in Pacific Spirit Regional Park, which is in turn part of the University Endowment Lands just west of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
Parking on a hot summer's day can be futile and stressful. All the free street parking disappears early in the morning and parking garages can be ridiculously full. The closest options for parking is the UBC West Parkade or the Precise ParkLink - both cost around $10 a day on weekends or $20 a day on weekdays and are a 400m walk to the start of the Wreck Beach stairs. You'll have more luck parking on a weekday or a weekend morning.
About 15 bus lines link the UBC Campus to the majority of Metro Vancouver and it is about a 20min ride from downtown Vancouver. The fastest bus is the #99 express which runs along Broadway to University Boulevard and Westbrook Mall. The walk to the Wreck Beach stairs is about 10mins from the bus stop at UBC and there are plenty of shops to stock up on food and drink if you need.
Uber and taxis will set you back upwards of $35+ from downtown Vancouver and aren't recommended.
