Nude bathing or complete suntanning at the beach in the United States is more practiced than you think; very little is known about these nude beaches outside the U.S. Although nude bathing is practiced on many beaches, lakes, and meadows, you’d need to clearly distinguish which of the beaches permit it and the ones that don’t or you may be required to pay a fine.
Of course, the latter is not discussed here, as it is expected wherever where nude bathing is not tolerated. Nevertheless, the top locations for the best nude beaches are Miami, Florida, and San Diego, California.
Many of these beaches have been famous nude environments for years, and are even tolerated by the police, as long as you do not do more than just being naked! Here are some of the most exciting nude beaches that we discovered:
Situated on 10800 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach (Haulover Park Beach) is the perfect beach environment for those who want to drop the covers in public without the creeping fear of being handcuffed or having to spend the entire evening in a police cell. Haulover Park Beach is well-attended in the city. The nude beach is so official (supported by the city) that those in charge even want to make it the # 1 in the US.
Nude bathing is generally not allowed in Key West, but "being topless" has established itself and is mostly tolerated. But how about a pub where you can be unclad? The famous “Garden of Eden" nude area is located above the pub "The Bull" on 224 Duval St. corner Caroline & Duval St.
The nude section is located in the "Canaveral National Seashore" area at the southern end. Hardly any parking spaces available! Parking lot 5 is the closest. At marker 29, the nude area begins. The nudist movement asks that visitors stock up on their food, sun cream and more at the local shops and also tell the storeowners why they have come to the vicinity. This is to encourage shop owners to support the naked movement because they benefit from tourists.
There are many places that are used for nude bathing, but most of them are not legal. This means that you should always keep a watchful eye if you do. The official description of these nude beaches is popularly called 'clothing optional beach', otherwise known as Nudist beaches. But this also means that theoretically clothed bathers can be found. Many stretches of beach exist where it is tolerated as long as there are no difficulties. But you would have to decide which of the spot if you feel most comfortable.
Unclad bathing will be tolerated as long as there are no complaints, otherwise, the officials may ask that you put on your clothes again. The parking lot has to be paid for as it fills up very quickly especially on weekends. You should consider maintaining a safe distance from the last Life Guard tower. And avoid going too far to the naval base. There are several hundreds of people here, and the majority of the population here are men. It is generally not as crowded as Black's Beach.
This is the best-known beach in the area and in the entire US for nudists. Located in La Jolla, north of San Diego – just south of Torrey Pines State Beach. Black's Beach is large and mostly very crowded, with a population of up to 10,000 people. At the north end is the homosexual corner, at the southern end, the men-women relationship is mixed.
Hippie Hollow Park, Austin: Nude bathing has a long tradition here. Since the 80s, the authorities at Travis County have been quite benevolent to nudism. small daily fee is charged, but there are also sanitary facilities, parking lots, etc. The park is open from April to October, from 9:00 in the morning - for approximately 12 hours.
The nude area has been used for years by lots of students who have Spring Break. The zone is just south of the 200-mi-long island; north of the South Padre. Nude bathing is tolerated here (of course without any guarantees).
