Is It Legal To Sunbathe Nude In Florida?

Discussing nude beaches in Florida can be considered a taboo conversation for some. While some like to drop their skivvies and others like to keep them on. 

Many people enjoy the freedom to sunbathe for an even tan without pesky tan lines.

As a warning before stripping down, in most places here in Florida public nudity is considered illegal and against the law.  Be cautious as violators could possibly be arrested.

Many of the nude beaches in Florida have their own set of rules. If you’re a newbie, it is advised you research what is and isn’t allowed at that specific nude beach.

Located on the south side of Bal Harbor inhabits Haulover Beach, which is one of Florida’s oldest, more established kinds. 

Haulover Beach is one of the best nude beaches in Florida for first-timers. Don’t worry about feeling shy stripping from your swimsuit. Many locals and tourists visit this park to go sunbathing and swimming in the nude. Trust me, there is nothing they haven’t seen before. 

Haulover Beach is one of the most populated nude beaches in Florida and is recognized as a clothing-optional beach in the state. 

This Miami nude beach cost $2 per vehicle to park.  Also, be sure to check some of the events held here such as the Nude Drum Circle and volleyball competitions. 

2| Blind Creek Beach

For gorgeous untouched scenery, visit Blind Creek Beach on Hutchinson Island or also known as “Florida’s Treasure Coast.” This clothing-optional beach makes the list as one of the best nude beaches in Florida. 

One thing that has drawn many people to this beach is its remoteness when compared to other beaches here in the Sunshine State.

Since it is located about 8 miles from the Jensen Beach Causeway, there is little to no development. So get naked and enjoy being carefree if you choose to visit.

3| Playalinda Beach

This beach is one of the most distinguished and beautiful beaches on the space coast. It is 24-miles of underdeveloped as well as protected shoreline. 

Playlinda Beach is a perfect spot for a day full of sun and surf. One of the things that makes it so great is its crystal-clear blue sea and shell-laden beach. Also, while here be sure to check out the premier rocket launch viewing area. 

Beachgoers can continue the fun by visiting Titusville nearby, the space coast’s most happening town. 

Entry fee is $20 per vehicle and is valid for a whole week. For a cheaper option, you can walk or ride to the beach by bicycle for $10 which is good for 7-days.

4| St Lucie Inlet

The St Lucie Inlet is not recognized as officially one of the nudist beaches in Florida, so you have to visit this incredible beach at your discretion. 

Admittedly, this beach is one of the best clothing optional beaches in Florida. So during your visit here,  proceed with caution before ditching your suit on your towel. 

Even if you can’t strip down, the views of the water from the inlet are definitely worth the trip. 

The entry to enter costs $3 per boat and kayaks/canoes go for two bucks. 

5| Boca Chica Beach

Located in Key West and home to South Florida’s largest Naval Air Station is the remote Boca Chica Beach. 

Known for not being necessarily polished it is one of the most natural nude beaches in Florida. With an assortment of flowers, hermit crabs, and mangroves, it provides a ton of fun to visitors. The Caribbean waters at this beach are clearer than crystal and are a haven for snorkelers. 

Due to its presence of seclusion those who practice nude recreation will find it easy to unwind and relax at this destination.

6| South Beach – Lummus Park

One of the most famous topless beaches in Florida is of course South Beach. Miami is known for having topless sun bunnies. However,  here it is not so common to see total nude persons around this beach. 

Although it’s not officially classified as one of the nude beaches in Florida, it has recently become the perfect hang-out spot for nude sunbathers. 

For timid sunbathers, you may want to visit early during the weekday or opt for one of the more private alternatives mentioned in this post. 

I suggest doing South Beach topless, instead of going full-nudity (which isn’t advised) and keeping your eyes open for gawkers who may be taking photos without your permission. 

Also, when in Miami, don’t forget to catch one stellar sunset cruise through Biscayne Bay and South Beach.

7| Bunche Beach Preserve

The Bunche Beach Preserve in San Carlos Bay of Fort Myers comprises a gorgeous beach that includes breathtaking mangroves. 

Additionally, other foliage makes this beach stand out. Guests come here to sit or stand naked under the sun and experience diverse kayaking and wildlife. 

What’s more, this beach has so much to offer it that it would be hard for you not to return several times for a visit. At this preserve you can experience the best nature has to offer. Also, don’t forget to sample the fantastic array of restaurants and shops within the Fort Myers area.

Entry is free; however, parking is $2 per hour. 

8| Apollo Beach

Another beautiful nude beach in Florida deserving of your visit is Apollo Beach. A secret nudist sanctuary situated along the Canaveral National Seashore. 

However, Apollo Beach is not recognized as one of the official nudist beaches in Florida, but nudism here is not illegal. Therefore, if you keep to yourself, you won’t have any problems. 

For those who want to be completely nude, you may want to consider searching more for a remote spot on the beach. Taking the extra trek to a more secluded area you can be sure to avoid issues.

    Clothing Optional Beaches In Florida Precautions

    As with any nude beach, there are precautions to consider before visiting. 

    • There is a high risk for sunburn. Private areas are exposed so be sure if you are not experienced wearing your birthdate suit to keep those parts protected from the sun. 
    • Florida’s sun is near the equator so it receives very strong sunlight. Be sure to wear protection and protect yourself from the risk of skin cancer. 
    • Be sure to check the laws of the specific beach you plan on visiting to avoid getting a ticket or even being arrested.
