The Quest for Clothing-Optional Beaches
Defining Our MandateSouth Florida Free Beaches/Florida Naturist Association, Inc. is an organization advocating for a fair share of public beaches and other suitable public commons for nude recreation in Florida, including the designation of clothing optional areas.
Free beach means a naturist or clothing-optional beach, which allows the option of skinny-dipping and nude sunbathing, commonly known as a nude beach.
Naturism is a philosophy advocating the intrinsic nobility of the human body as a creation of Nature; more at: Naturism 101
Haulover BeachSFFB/FNA founded the clothing optional section of Haulover Beach Park in Miami in 1991 and mentors it through its volunteer Beach Ambassador program, establishing the model for an urban nude beach.
