    Sorry folks, This beach has never been a nude beach! Nudity is totally not permitted on it period! The north privet end of the beach up in the dunes was years ago, But now zero tolerance of nudity! I have three acquaintances arrested for nude sunbathing back up in the dunes with in the past two years!
