Nude (Naked Sunbathing) Beaches – Florida


Where oh where can you legally get entirely bare?

Summer is here and vacation is the name of the game, but cheap is also in this year – what better way to save $100 per family member than to skip that new bathing suit?

Nude sunbathing is in this year more than ever, perhaps because it eliminated that need to buy an expensive bathing suit!

But you have to know where it is both safe and acceptable.

Starting with Florida, I believe there is only one actually “legal” nude beach, Haulover Beach on Collins Ave, North Miami Beach.

But this is not for sight-seeing or you might get pinched.

A non-sanctioned but apparently safe beach (according to is South Beach on Ocean Drive, Miami Beach. Reportedly this area is very “European.”

There are other non-sanctioned nude clothing-optional beaches in the Sunshine State, but you may wish to consider the many private clubs.
