Proof that the world recession isn’t wholly a bad thing.
The City fathers of Key West, Florida are “considering whether or not to allow nude bathing at one of their beaches”, citing the success of the designated naturist beach at Haulover Beach Park on Miami Beach.
The clincher may be the economic situation. Commissioners point to the success of Haulover and also the increased tourist revenues of nearby Cuba, which has official nudist beaches.
The commissioners hope to put it to the ballot in October. Let’s keep our fingers crossed!
Hi, I’m back
It’s been some time since I last posted anything to my blog.
I’ve been so involved in updating and publishing the new edition of my book
Nudism and Naturism Guide cover
“The Complete Guide to Nudism & Naturism” ( ISBN-13: 978-0385491679) plus taking a two week Mediterranean cruise that for the first quarter of this year I’ve been virtually incommunicado.
Anyway, the book’s published, the vacation is over, and I’m here back in the harness.
Not too much to report on the nudist front though: the news in the UK is dominated by swine flu and the scandal of MP’s expenses: the first issue is potentially too alarming and the other is just too shabby for even me to put a nudist swing on.
One thing did catch my eye, though.
According to Herald.ie, an Irish website, online bookers Hotels.com have nominated two Irish beaches amongst the world’s top ten nudist beaches. I have to say that I’ve been unable to find any reference to this on hotels.com website, but I hope it’s true, as one of the beaches is the delightfully named “Inch Beach”!
Must be the cold!
See the article here.
Another of the world’s notable nudist beaches.
College Cove. Humboldt County. California, USA
Google Map here.
There are actually two beaches at College Cove, usually designated as north and south. The northern beach is easier to reach, and therefore tends to get busier.
The beach is a crescent shaped cove with about a quarter mile of sand and tons of driftwood. The water can be very cold, and this stretch of the coast is subject to fog.
· Take US 101 North out of Eureka.
· Take the turnoff leading to Trinidad. You will come to an intersection that forks either to Trinidad or Stage Coach Road
· Take the Stage Coach Road fork. Look for and park in a dirt lot less than mile down on the left.
· The north trail goes to College Cove North while the south trail leads to College Cove South.
Not clear. Is widely known as a popular and frequently used nudist venue, but has a history of some law enforcement. Use with caution.
Who goes there:
· On a good day, about 50 / 100 visitors over both beaches. Both beaches are popular with young singles, although most of them are textile. There is a higher percentage of nudists on the south beach, but even there they are in the minority.
· Some gawkers.
At low tide it is possible to walk between the two beaches.
Do you know this nudist beach? Is it nudist family friendly? Are pets allowed? Is it suitable for the infirm or disabled Please help us help the nudist community and make any helpful additions or corrections.
