Park officials have been turning a blind eye to this clothing-optional stretch of sand for years.

Looking for a no tan lines summer? This quick road trip is for you.

Known affectionately to regulars as “Okapulco”, this long, sandy beach located on the north shore of Lac des Deux-Montagnes is secretly one of Quebec’s most popular nudist beaches.

On busy weekends, the beach at Oka Provincial Park—a wide body of water downstream from the mouth of the Ottawa River—can draw between 300 to 500 nudists. 

While nudity is officially not tolerated (the presence of “no nudity” signs is one tip off), park officials have historically turned a blind eye to the large crowds of naturalists.

To get to the beach at Oka Provincial Park, situated about 50 km from downtown Montreal, go north on Highway 13, west on Highway 640 to Highway 344 West, following signs for Oka Provincial Park. The entrance to the park is at the end of the highway.

Once you’re on the main beach, walk east from the Littoral Visitors’ Centre until the beach becomes more rustic. The nudist beach is located to the left when facing the water.

Montreal and its surrounding areas are filled with glorious beaches and water parks, and the beach at Oka Provincial Park is no different.

Home to a volleyball court, toilets, showers, picnic tables, free access to drinking water, bike racks, it also has a bistro that’s typically open on weekends and during the summer holidays.
