RE:What to wear when you go to or leave a nudebeach

I leave the car park wearing just beach shorts, commando, and thongs (flip-flops). There is a short walk to the beach past a restaurant and the SLSC. The first part of the beach is not clothing optional, so the shorts stay on. When I reach the demarcation sign I stop to remove my shorts. I walk the water's edge where the sand in firm and cool, as the main beach can be too hot for bare feet during the summer. When leaving the beach at the end of a great day I am naked until I reach the sign, where the shorts (reluctantly) go back on.

Thanks for the clarification on thongs for those of us from the US.
We were visiting my brother in law in Australia last February and we took them to a rather nice restaurant.
There was a sign near the entrance that said men wearing thongs were allowed in the bar, but not the dining room.
Since thongs in the US generally refer to swimwear or underwear, I was puzzled.
Or nephew explained that in Australia thongs generally mean what we call flip-flops.

Surprised so many wear a shirt.
Would any of you share why?

I've lived in Australia long enough now to call them thongs, but they remained "flip-flops" to me for a long time. In the UK "thongs" were worn by women like a cheese wire between the bum cheeks lol.

I usually wear just shorts, commando of course,and sandals to the beach and I like staying as naked as possible so I just wrap a towel around me to walk back.

I don't get to the beach as much as the spa, When I go, I usually just wear my tan through shorts and a t-shirt.
They are quite sheer, so if anyone is focusing, they will see a bit more than normal. I am usually carrying a bag so I can use it to somewhat shield myself if necessary. As far as my back side, don't really care. What's a little butt crack!

We used to have to carry backpacks. Down to San Onfre in California. But yes once you hit that sign off game the shorts. But ahhh when you had to go back to that sign When youre leaving and you had to put your clothes back on. I would resist as long as I could. But then all day in the sun I guess it was a good day. Cant wait to be that way all the time. Hoping to retire this year

When driving to the beach after work I would strip naked while driving there. I usually have a state parking pass so when I go to SanOnofre I would just show my pass while driving in and they wave me through so I never have to put something on until I get to the spot to get out of my car. I then put on my swim trunks or gym shorts only. Once I get to a certain spot on the beach I strip naked again which is usually before the nude area because the lifeguards cant see that Im nude. Same thing on the way back. Once I get in to the car if no one is around Ill strip naked again and toss my shorts in the trunk then in the car and drive home. Somewhere along the freeway Ill get dressed.

From the parking lot just gym shorts, hat and flip flops. Off comes the gym shorts once I pass the clothing optional sign and They take up very little space in my gym bag. Why wear more than you have to since you are going to getting naked anyway. Love the freedom of walking naked to the beach and enjoying the warmth of the sun on my naked body.

Just like me except I don't wear a hat.

For me it's the same as a textile beach : t-shirt and swim trunks. This is for two reasons. One, going from hotel room to car to parking area is not clothing optional - at least where I have gone. Two, shirt provides comfort since I am carrying chair, umbrella, backpack with water, towel, sunscreen.
