My wife and I have been into the nudist lifestyle for several years now and just love traveling the country checking out nudist spots. Each state is different in what they offer the local nudist which leads to the question of “What is available for North Carolina nude beaches and resorts?”
In general, there are a few options available for North Carolina nudists. While there are no official North Carolina nude beaches, there are a few North Carolina nudist resorts that give you a legal option to sunbathe in the nude. North Carolina nudist groups will provide additional options.
So let’s take a look at what this state has to offer the North Carolina nudist. We will look at North Carolina nude beach options, North Carolina nudist resort options, and North Carolina nudist group options. We will also look at some travel options and some wilder North Carolina alternative lifestyle options.
North Carolina Nude Beaches
Unfortunately, there are no official public North Carolina Nude Beaches. According to findlaw.com exposing your “private parts” is illegal in North Carolina and can involve up to 60 days in jail and up to a $1000 fine (punishments are more severe if involving a minor).
However, according to a recent article, it is not illegal to go topless in North Carolina so that definitely gives some options. So while going topless may leave you feeling out of place, it is not illegal.
There are a number of spots listed as North Carolina Nudist Beaches but remember that these are not official nude beaches and you can get in trouble with the law. If I was a North Carolina nudist, I would much rather go to one of the North Carolina nude resorts listed below and avoid any legal issues.
If you are looking for some great nude beaches that are legal. I suggest checking out Top Nude Beaches in Florida. I know that involves a lot of travel but at least you don’t have to worry about getting arrested.
The table below contains a short list of some spots that are listed as having unofficial nude areas. Most of them are secluded areas and you are basically counting on not getting caught. Once again, I highly recommend traveling to a real public nude beach or a North Carolina nudist resort.

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.
