Sunny day suggested, clothing optional.

You deserve to let it all hang out if that’s how you feel most comfortable – but where can you go in Calgary if a nude beach is what you seek?

Alberta is not known for its soft sand and high temperatures, but there are several spots where you can enjoy a day by the water – with or without a bathing suit.

According to Calgary Nude Recreation (CNR), those interested have two body-positive destinations that can be visited as long as it’s done respectfully.

Nestled between Glenmore Reservoir and Tsuut’ina Nation (Treaty 7) land, the Weaslehead Nude Beach has been recognized for two decades and is incredibly accepting.

“On a nice sunny day a few dozen people may be enjoying the area,” they write.

“This area is open to people of all body types, sizes, all genders, all sexualities, young or old, and clothed or naked. Nudity is not required.”

Alternatively, there is also ‘Hidden Beach,’ which can be found in Fish Creek Park – though you’ll want to wear comfortable shoes and prepare for a bit of a walk as it’s off the beaten path.

If you’re interested, please note that these beaches have been acknowledged by officials but are not designated – as CNR explained on their website. 

“There are only two beaches in Canada that are officially designated as clothing optional, located in Vancouver and Toronto,” CNR says.

“Every other nude area in Canada is “unofficial”. This location has been used for decades without issue, and its location and use for non-sexual naturism is well known to the authorities.”

This goes for both Weaslehead and Hidden Beach, but there you have it.

Check it out, but stay out of trouble, follow the rules, and be kind.

It’s going to be a beautiful season and everyone deserves to have a beachin’ summer.
