Depends on the beach.
No matter were, I always drive nude.
When I go to Black's, it is just a towel and sandals for the hike down from the glider port. As soon as my feet hit the sand off comes the towel.
When I go to Bates it is gym shorts and sandals. Since Bates is no longer officially a CO area I cannot get nude until I am far enough away from others to avoid anyone complaining.
When I used to go to Playalinda all the time I just wore shorts and flip flops over the boardwalk. Like others, when my feet hit the sand they came off. I'd never wear a shirt to a beach, unless it's cold and I'm always commando so no underwear.
If you are on a nudebeach you only wear your birthdaysuit, but what do you wear when you are traveling to the beach. And what do you wear if you leave the beach.Please tell us....
When leaving home and driving all the way up, I wear any clothes I'd normally wear to any other casual place, like pants or shorts and a t-shirt. More often than not I'll just wear the loosest, comfiest shorts with no t-shirt and no undies if I can. Sneakers, not flip flops, because of driving laws.
Once I've parked my car, I'll often change behind it -- or in it if there are people lingering nearby. At my local nude beach, there's no access leading straight to the point where you can go naked, so instead you have to leave your car at a normal road and walk past a restaurant and the whoooole textile portion of the beach. You walk along the shoreline to get to the other end of it and you have wear clothes at this point. To keep the weight of my bag at a minimum I'll just put on a swimsuit, OR a pair of lightweight shorts, OR just a microfiber towel around my waist as it goes in the bag in any case. I've seen guys cross the textile area in briefs.
If I leave at night when the textile area and the restaurant are empty, I can just walk butt naked back to my car. Otherwise, same as before: either a towel or whatever I put on earlier.
