The Quest for Clothing-Optional Beaches

Welcome to Haulover Beach!

Welcome to Miami and to Haulover Beach! You've picked a perfect time of year to visit. The air and the water are warming up, but we're still in the dry season, meaning lots of sunshine.

Haulover Park caters to a wide variety of activities and communities. South Florida Free Beaches / Florida Naturist Association founded Haulover's naturist beach in 1991 and continues to mentor it as the recognized organization representing the interests of naturist beach patrons.

In case you're interested in Haulover's European-style, family-friendly, naturist beach, please review an introduction and guidelines here to make your visit more comfortable and enjoyable. For a deeper read about the history of Haulover Beach and how it fits into the "free beach" movement, see "Guidebook to the Naturist Beach" at this link.

The Miami-Dade County Parks, Recreation, and Open Spaces Department, which operates Haulover Park, including its beach, has asked beach stakeholder groups such as ours to share its April 4 news release, advising the public of enforcement of the Miami-Dade County rule against flotation devices in the water at the County's public beaches.

IMPORTANT: Please do *not* take any flotation device into the water. More details about this rule and its enforcement are provided in the post here. Please read it thoroughly to avoid any surprise. Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you this weekend!

P.S. Special thanks to all the volunteers on the Floatnik 2017 Litter Prevention Team (link)! We love and treasure a clean Haulover Beach, and we are grateful for your commitment to help keep it that way. You're the best!

Help the continued effort to add clothing optional beaches to the Florida coastline.

Tampa Bay

Tampa Area Naturists (TAN), in alliance with the B.E.A.C.H.E.S. Foundation, is seeking the (re-)establishment of an officially-designated, European-style, family-oriented, Clothing-Optional (naturist) section of beach in the Tampa Bay area due to the complete absence of a designated naturist beach on the entire West Coast of Florida, to satisfy local demand and to enhance the attraction of the Tampa Bay area as an international tourist destination, with considerable benefit to the local economy and the hospitality industry.

Please help by signing the petition here.

Caspersen Beach

The goal is to designate a 1/4 mile of Caspersen Beach Park in Venice, Florida, as clothing-optional.

The popularity of clothing optional beaches around the world is growing at a significant rate. As Pasco County has shown, clothing-optional businesses are an important part of their tourist economy. Part of the success of Haulover Beach is due to supporting organizations such as the B.E.A.C.H.E.S Foundation Institute and South Florida Free Beaches. If a 1/4 mile of Caspersen Beach is designated as clothing optional, Suncoast Naturists will work with supporting organizations such as AANR-Florida and those mentioned above to make this a successful decision.

Please help by signing the petition here.

MacArthur Beach, Palm Beach County

The Palm Beach Freedom Beach Initiative was formed with the sole purpose of having a stretch of beach available for clothing-optional sunbathing in Palm Beach County, Florida. For information on a new effort to bring a clothing-optional beach back to Palm Beach County, visit and "like" their page here.
