South Florida offers sunshine almost every day of the year.
While most people prefer to take in the rays of the sun with
their bathing suits, there are some who prefer to go au-
natural – I mean why waste the sun’s energy on clothes?
Like most cities, South Florida, does have nude beaches but
with some restrictions. The only legal and officially
recognized nude beach in Florida is Haulover beach. There
are several other beaches but the amount of nudity is
limited and depends on how much tolerance law
enforcement has on that particular day.
Haulover beach is perhaps the oldest and most well known
of the nude beaches in south Florida. It is located on a strip
of land about 1/1/2 miles just north of Bal Harbour which is
located midway between Fort Lauderdale and Miami. It is
annually ranked as one of the top nude beaches on the
planet. Besides the white soft sands and pristine blue
waters, this beach is very family friendly, has ample
parking and all the other amenities are located close by.
The reason people prefer to go nude here is because it is
like a community and is relatively safe. Besides
heterosexual nudes, Haulover also attracts many gay
naturists from all over the globe.
There are clearly marked signs all over the place so that
people are not accidentally surprised by people disrobing.
The beach area is closely guarded and there are lifeguards.
Not only can one get a tan here, swim and surf but the
beach offers picnic facilities. People of all ages can be
found here every day of the week. The beach also gets
crowded during the weekends.
Haulover beach has also become quite famous for nudists
to have discreet sex, especially in the evening- and more
often then not; these people are either swingers or gay. And
they usually welcome onlookers to join them. So make sure
you have ample KY jelly and a dozen condoms on you, just
in case you get lucky.
The other two beaches that offer some degree of unofficial
nudity are Miami Beach and South Beach. These two
beaches are alive day or night. In the past 2 decades, the
arrival of Europeans who love to go nude at the beach has
led to some tolerance for topless sunbathing. There are
many people in various stages of undress but complete
nudity is not permitted. If you do take off all your clothes,
rest assured, you will be ticketed and even kicked off the
