Best for Getting Naked
Wreck Beach, British Columbia
It's well worth the quick trip across the border: This clothing-optional strip of sand at the base of the University of B.C. attracts beachgoers eager to indulge in a freer lifestyle. Regulars include Watermelon, a sultry burlesque performer and baker (think pot cookies), and a naked chef named Norman who grills up buffalo burgers. A free-enterprise atmosphere means just about anything's available, from mixed drinks to massages. Nights begin with a bonfire and a hootenanny-style jam. Be careful how fully you enjoy yourself – the 417-stair climb back to reality can take its toll.
