Hikers and sunbathers in the buff can be found along this beach hike. The trail, which is mostly an undefined route along the rocky shore, starts on the north side of Point Grey at Acadia Beach. It passes two interesting WWII searchlight towers and ends with a steep climb: the 483 stairs at famous clothing-optional Wreck Beach. Nude sunbathers and off-leash dogs allowed October - February. Wreck Beach is Vancouver's only nude beach. On sunny days the clothing-optional attitude spreads along Tower and Acadia Beaches as well. Note: Beach rocks can be slippery, and there's not always sand to walk on. There is no fresh water along this hike. At hight tide, some sections of the shoreline may be difficult or impossible to access.
