New Jersey Nude Beaches

New Jersey nude beaches

If you live in New Jersey, you have access to one of the best nude beaches in the United States. Gunnison Beach is an extremely popular nude beach and nudity is officially allowed there so there are no worries about running into trouble with the law.

There are some unofficial nude beach locations in New Jersey but users should be really cautious. I do not recommend unofficial nude beaches especially when there are some legal options available. You can check out for more information on New Jersey public indecency laws.

Public nudity including women being topless is illegal in New Jersey so I would be really leery about going to any unofficial nude beaches. A lot of law enforcement officials are willing to look the other way but there is no guarantee of this.

Some great alternatives to New Jersey nude beaches include New Jersey nudist resorts. These resorts can give you some legal alternative places to soak up the sun in the buff.

If you are set on visiting some great nude beaches year-round, I would recommend checking out Florida Nude Beaches for some of the best nude beaches in the country.

Gunnison Beach

Middletown, New Jersey

New Jersey nude beaches include the world-famous Gunnison Beach.

Gunnison beach is the largest nude beach on the east coast of the United States. The only beach that is even close to it in size and popularity is Haulover Beach in Florida. It has a great view of New York City and is very popular in the summer months.

This is one of those rare beaches where it is not only socially acceptable but also legal to take it all off and enjoy the sun in the buff. You can find close to a thousand nude sunbathers here on a hot summer day.

You will find all different ages and body types here so do not be bashful about baring it all.

Visiting Gunnison Beach is free. Use parking lot G in the Fort Hancock area of the Sandy Hook Unit of Gateway National Recreation Area.

If you live in this area, you have to give Gunnison Beach a try. It is a must-visit for any nudist.

Sunset Beach

Lower Township, New Jersey

Other New Jersey nude beaches are unofficial nude beaches which means that the nudity is illegal and you use than at your own risk. People do get tickets or arrested here and I would not personally risk it.

An example of this is Sunset Beach in Lower Township, NJ. Apparently, a lot of people still utilize this beach to get a few naked rays.

There are numerous articles that you can find detailing how the Higbee Beach section is still used by many for nude sunbathing. Most articles mention that the beach is popular with gay and naturist beachgoers.

The Other Type of Nudists: Swingers in New Jersey

When someone is looking for New Jersey nudist resorts, it is important to take into account what you are looking for. A traditional naturist nudist resort is a completely different experience from a swinger clothing optional resort. Going to the wrong type may lead to some unexpected surprises for you.

In a nutshell, naturists nudists look at nudity as a natural state of being that is not tied to sex. Therefore these places can be family-orientated and sexual activity is not encouraged or allowed. Swingers look at nudity as being totally about sexuality. Sexual activity is allowed and encouraged.
