Clothing Optional Beaches
A nude beach is a beach where users are legally at liberty to be nude. Nude beaches are relatively few and usually located off the beaten track - access can be difficult and few facilities are available. The terms "clothing-optional" beach or "free" beach are sometimes used. Nude beaches may be official (legally sanctioned), unofficial (tolerated by residents and law enforcement), or illegal.
Please make sure to confirm with local authorities about clothing options before you disrobe.
