Be buff by the bluffs at Crescent Rock Beach, Surrey’s original naturist refuge on the rugged and secluded 6.5 km of coastline between White Rock and Crescent Beach on the Semiahmoo Penisula. Take in the panoramic views of Boundary Bay and the Gulf Islands while basking clothes free in the sun’s warming rays for a beautiful all-over tan.
Enjoy the relaxing solitude of this isolated beach, sheltered by the adjacent Ocean Park bluffs. See the aerial ballet of bald eagles and ospreys soaring overhead from their nests in the giant Douglas firs. Watch great blue herons hunting for a meal in the shallows amidst flocks of migratory ducks and shorebirds. If you keep an eye on the waters of Boundary Bay you might spot sea otters, harbour seals, resident Orcas, or grey whales passing through on their coastal journeys.
This scenic shore was named after the 120 tonne Crescent Rock boulder, a large glacial erratic composed of white granite that was carried to the water’s edge during the last ice age. It sits on the point of land south of Crescent Beach where it is clearly visible from the public walkway.
Crescent Rock Beach has a long history of naturist use dating back to the1950’s when Sunny Trails Nudist Club first opened in Surrey. Many of the people who had homes or summer cottages near the beach would walk beyond the clothed crowds to this secluded shoreline and sunbathe au’ naturelle or go skinny-dipping.
Today, Crescent Rock Beach draws residents and visitors from across the Lower Mainland and the Fraser Valley. Why drive all the way to Wreck Beach in Vancouver when there is another naturist hot spot so close to home? SUN hopes that you will fall in love with Crescent Rock Beach and make this special place your nude-friendly getaway.
Be comfortable in your own skin and have fun in the sun “naturally” at Crescent Rock Beach. Make sure to tell your friends, or bring them along so they may experience the freedom of the naturist way of life.
