Frequently Asked Questions
1. Where can I find a nude beach?
If you don’t already know of a nearby nude beach, ask someone who knows. A good source is The Naturist Society, a membership organization that has grown from the Free Beach Documentation Center to become the most respected authority in North America on the topic of nude beaches. Reach The Naturist Society toll free by phone: (800) 886-7230, on weekdays from 8 AM to 5 PM Central time.
2. Why not just go to a nudist park?
Private nudist parks, camps and resorts are wonderful places. They are businesses that cater to selected segments of the nude recreation industry. Nudist facilities range from tiny to large, rustic to posh, and inexpensive to pricey. They typically offer amenities you won’t find at a beach. But for many people who are looking for a natural experience that doesn’t involve a concrete swimming pool behind fences, walls and gates, nothing will ever come close to the open freedom of a nude beach.
3. Nude beach etiquette.
Over the years practical guidelines have evolved for clothing-optional beaches. Please respect them, for your own sake and the sake of others.
4. What is “clothing-optional”?
Most nude beaches are more accurately described as clothing-optional. Just as no one is forced to wear clothing there, no one is forced to be nude. It’s a reciprocal tolerance that makes sense. Of course, since they can be dressed almost anywhere else, most people choose to be nude at a nude beach.
5. Who’s behind Nude Beaches YES!?
The Naturist Action Committee (NAC) has paid for the signs and this Web site. Many of those carrying signs are NAC volunteers. The inspiration for the project and much of the energy for it comes from the Body Freedom Collaborative (BFC).
