    My GF suggested we visit one in a couple weeks. It actually sounded like a good idea so I agreed. I'm getting a little adventurous in my "old" age. Anyone have any experience or suggestions? I know sun block in sensitive areas will be a must!

    When I was 15 I went to Blacks Beach north of San Diego. It just so happened to be the same time that soem college kid decided was a good time to commit suicide by driving his car off the cliffs. We helped the firefighters lug equipment to the site and wound up on TV that night.
    imagine explaining to your parents what you were doing at Blacks Beach to begin with. [​IMG]

    I couldn't imagine being at a nude beach at 15. I'm 43 and concerned that I won't be shall we say "relaxed" with the situation, especially with my GF naked next to me all day.

    2nd Honeymoon in Maui.

    We were looking for the red sand beaches. We found them but
    no one bothered to tell us that it was nuddie beach.

    When in Rome, politely turn around and leave if you don't
    want to do what the Romans are doing.

    Not my kind of scene but everyone seemed to be quite happy
    laying around butt-naked and the same color as the sand.

    Yes, back in 1982, at a large lake north of Denver. Everyone was very relaxed and casual. Even had city? lifeguards, who wore orange trunks (boo).

    I wonder if the nude beach is still there?

    Yes, bring along sunscreen.
    And remember, it is equal opportunity nudity....
    ("hey, dude, aren't those your parents?")
    But, hey, that's cool. Something has to temper the...um..."excitement".

    South Beach Miami is topless--highly recommended.
    I've never been to a completely nude beach. I burn too easily as it is, so I can't see myself revelaing my most sensitive parts to the sun!

    I was just at the local nude beach this weekend.
    Indeed, sunscreen is very very important. And when your friend/companion assures you that he/she has put enough sunscreen on your back, get someone else to double check. Damn, my back is so itchy now. [​IMG]
    The other thing to remember, if your local beach is anything like the one here, people are not there to ogle or be ogled at. They are there to relax and be liberated. It's really a very benign, non-sexual naked in my experience. Of course, every so often someone will come by who, well, you know... just remember what Seinfeld said about cleavage: Don't stare...just get a sense of it, then look away. [​IMG]
    Oh, and unless you are planning on participating (ie. getting naked), best to stay away...clothed people are generally frown upon as it is often assumed they are just there for an eyefull.
    Don't worry if you're nervous though...you'll soon find that if you are the only clothed person amongst hundreds of naked people, YOU will feel like the conspicuous one.

    Well not a dedicated one, but we have luckily a small nice lake nearby where we often drive to in the evening or at weekends for a swim , and most people there can´t be bothered with wearing bathing clothes, including us. If you get used to it, you don´t want to go again to a conventional swimming pool where bathings suits are obligatory, and them clinging to you wet and cold after swimming, brrrrrr!

    Yep...

    There's a beach called "Hanlan's Point" at the Toronto Islands that is designated nude. It's a small strip in between regular beach areas that is fenced off with a sign stating "Clothing Optional".

    About 3 years ago, my x-girlfriend and I were rollerblading past the beach area, and she mentioned to me that we were passing by Hanlans. Being interested in seeing what it was all about, we took off our rollerblades and went on a quick stroll (hand in hand) on the beach.

    It was nothing special. Mostly male (and from what I understand it's very popular with the gay community here), and mostly an older croud. I did see a few people there who looked like there were there only for the show. My girlfriend definately got many looks from some of the guys, expecting her to start stipping down to the buff. She was a tall, thin, incredibly attractive redhead, so I'm sure she was a popular object of attention. She didn't take kindly to the idea, so we left.

    No big whoop. It's a beach with nekkid people. I've seen it before. And trust me - we're not talking supermodel nekkid Playboy playmates.

    If anyone wants a visual of some of the ladies, think Rosie O'Donnel in her birthday suit... (uggghhhhhh.........)

    Although, I don't know who the hell would want to swim in Lake Ontario, much less in the Nude!

    Moe.

    Orient Beach in St. Maarten (the French side), and as Moe said, there are many Rosie O'Donnells (as well as people in their 60s, 70s, etc.); young "models" were certainly few and far between!
