RE:Where have you been?

Haven't been to Sunny Rest yet. Maybe this summer.We met a couple that frequently goes and they painted Sunny Rest as a wild swingers place, which kind of turned my wife off.

I was there with a day pass in 2019 and I didn't notice anything like that, but I left before dinner so it might change in the evening. I did notice that the gift and snack shop had a lot of revealing lingerie and they host lingerie optional dances once a week.
I also asked a friend who has been involved in nudity longer than I have and he said that it was a swingers place some years ago, but they have largely cleaned up their act since.

RE:Where have you been?

Ive only been to Caliente. (Last year.) And Haulover beach. (Two weeks ago.) But i really want to try Paradise Lakes in FL. My wife got turned off by Caliente. Too many people having sex in the open at the pool at night. She can't get into the swinging thing and I agree with that. But I want her to try the nude thing, she's kind of shy. I think Paradise Lakes is more laid back and friendly, without the open sex. I wasn't put off by it, people will be people. I just like being nude, and could go 24/7/365 without clothes forever. Does anyone have experience with Paradise Lakes? let me know. I am also thinking about a nude cruse in 2022, does anyone have experience with that? Let me know.

We havent been to Paradise Lakes, but I know when I was really looking at resorts in FL for a trip we had several years ago, we settled on Cypress Cove. Like you, we were looking for a great nudist experience without the swinging, sexual environment, etc. We thoroughly enjoyed Cypress Cove and would definitely go back but its a long haul from California.

Were in the opposite boat. We really liked Laguna del Sol, but its a hike from New England, so we now go to Florida. We love going to the Cove, but we are at Lake Como right now (right next door to Paradise Lakes). Lake Como is laid back and friendly, as is Cypress Cove. We will now have the dilemma of picking which to go to!

Weve also been on six nude cruises. There is one company that does nude cruises (Bare Necessities). You can be nude anywhere onboard except the main dining room. They abide by AANR rules, so no sex in public at all unless you want to get kicked off the ship. Then there are several other companies that do lifestyle cruises that advertise nudity (only up by the pool). These are primarily swingers cruises, which should be obvious when they advertise their play room as a feature of the cruise. Weve only done the true nudist cruises and they are a lot of fun, too.
