Florida Nude Beaches

Florida Nude Beaches

Enjoy the Sunshine State, Sunnyside up!

The Sunshine State boasts one officially legal nude beach - perhaps one of the most well known nude beaches in the world - yet several shores are discreet enough to allow for clothing-optional escapes.

From the scenic Gulf Coast to wildlife refuges and the bustle of Miami, these beaches should be a bucket list toppers for anyone looking to experience the Florida's nude beach scene.

Haulover Beach

Set in Miami of Dade County, Florida, Haulover Beach is one of the most famous nude beaches in the country. A fully legal nude public beach (the only one in Florida), the white-sanded Haulover Beach spans .5 miles, and also offers volleyball, boating, and nightlife.

South Beach

Stick around the Miami area for another familiar beachfront, South Beach - where barred-all beach goers are no strangers. Nude sunbathing is common, while other activities include shopping and nightlife.

Playalinda Beach

Found on the Canaveral National Seashore along Florida's eastern coast, Playalinda Beach neighbors cities like Titusville, New Smyrna Beach, and of course Cape Canaveral. Also known as Playa Lynda, this wildlife-heavy beach is discreet, though not an official nude beach.

Apollo Beach

Also found on the Canaveral National Seashore, Apollo Beach is yet another discreet stretch of sand known traditional as a nude beach. Neighboring Mosquito Lagoon, Apollo Beach attracts many low-profile naturalists to its unofficial clothing-optional shores. Nearby activities include golf at the Apollo Beach Golf Club, horseback riding, and ranger programs with the Canaveral National Seashore.

Hobe Sound Beach

Located on Jupiter Island in southeastern Florida, the Hobe Sound National Wildlife Refuge is known as a crowd-free stretch where naturalists may tan in peace. Once you've had enough sun, be sure to see the Jupiter Outdoor Center and the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse, or check out some of the multi-million dollar mansions on Jupiter Island.

Air Force Beach

A former nude beach of the 60s and 70s, Air Force Beach - known officially as John D. MacArthur Beach State Park - is set along a stunning barrier island in southeast Florida. Though legal nudism was nixed in 1982, Air Force Beach can still be clothing-optional if the sunbather is discreet.

  • Blind Creek in Fort Pierce is nice
    • Visited Haulover beach a few. Years ago. Great beach,but found the ocean a little rough.
      • I picked the WRONG decade to leave Florida...LOL
        • I wish we still had Navarre Beach, Fl. (panhandle) as a nudist beach. It was located on Eglin A.F.B. property and was nude friendly from 1979 until 1999. It became a no nudist beach when the Eglin A.F.B. commander changed and the new one allowed the local police to ticket and arrest people for only being nude. I was one of those arrested for only being naked. Fifteen people were taken to Milton Fl. jail , it took me 8 hours and $500.00 to get out of it. I thought we had Red necks here in Al. but WOW!
          • I loved Haulover Beach when I was there. I need to go back, it has been nearly three years.
            • Blind Creek Beach is a nudist beach, permitted by St Lucie County in Jensen Beach, Florida. You tote along a beach sign that says "Nude Sun Bathers".
              • I went to playa linda for 3 years before I moved to NC.Very nice people(mostly older) and friendly.Beautiful beach ,no amenities.Bring water and refreshments.Usually only busy on weekends. Parking is limited so go early or later in day.Bring shade,it gets hot in summer and lots of sunscreen.
                • Haulover is one of my favorites!
                  • You need to add Blind Creek Beach on Hutchinson Island north of Jensen Beach. It is an awesome beach that has received official status from the Sheriff's department and is a beautiful beach. Just spent 2 glorious days naked working on my all over tan
