  • San Onofre Beach

    Does anyone know the current status of San Onofre Beach, whether nudity is permitted or not? I may be in SoCal in August and would like to visit the beach if there is no problem with nudity and the officials there.

    Nudity is alive and well down at this beach! The nude section is very limited though. Down at the end of trail 6 take a left and head past the last lifeguard tower, you should be able to see the volleyball crowd just past the entrance to the canyon. This is the start of the nude section. Goodluck and let us know how you liked it.

      No other way to put it but the way NudeAl says..."nude use at this beach is alive and well."

      We try to get down there several times during the summer but with hectic schedules and grandchildren, it's tough.

      Follow NudeAl's directions and you'll have a nice day.

        We have Texas beach here in Richmond. Is said to be semi nudist area but I have been there a couple times and never seen anyone nude there. Is difficult to get to but is a nice area. Can be dangerous in faster water after a good rain.

        Just the way it is here!

          I have been to San Onofre one time. The one thing that I remember the most is just how cold the Pacific Ocean is there compared to the Atlantic in Florida.

          I started to walk out into the water and immediately stopped and backed up. I am really glad that I didn't just go running into the water. The use of wet suits by surfers sure makes a lot of sense.

            Thanks to all!

            Yes, I know the Pacific is cold. But I still hope to give it a try, especially at San Onofre this time.

            Are there any other comments? I appreciate all that can be said.

              I swam in the Pacific Ocean,at Vancouver, B.C.
              Canada in June, a few years ago.
              It was a little cool,but the body adjusts!
              Wade in slowly. Splash water on your upper body as you go into the deeper water.
              Within a minute or two, should be great for swimming.

              Enjoy.

                  What would you like to know? Do you have specific questions? We frequent this beach, as I stated before, and are members of the Friends of San Onofre Beach.

                  We can answer most of your questions.

                    Thanks for all the good tips, especially the link to last year's discussion of San Onofre.

                    I must admit from last year's discussion San O sounds like a great beach to visit as long as this 63 year old can make the hill down and up!

                    Here's another question: since I will likely only have one day out of my trip to California, would you recommend the beach, or a visit to a club like Glen Eden? I've never been to either since I'm just beginning to explore naturism. My guess would be I should do the beach since I'll be in California, and visit a club at a later date. But I'm open to suggestions from people with experience.

                    Thanks in advance. I'm so appreciative of all the good comments.

                      I would choose the beach. We were there last weekend and it was a beautiful day. Great weather and great crowd. By the way, the water felt great. There were a number of sufers sufing nude. It is worth the hike down and up.

                      Have fun!

                        I would also choose the beach over Glen Eden for this trip. The "hike" up and down the service road isn't too bad unless you've got a bad back or bad knees.

                        We've seen many people just stop midway and take a breather before assending the steepest portion.

                        Remember, there are no services down on the beach. Restrooms are at the trail head and your only option, on the beach, is back in a couple of canyons. Be sure to take plenty of water and something to eat, unless you're not going to stay too long.

                        The Marines have been inconsistent about allowing people on their portion of the beach. When you get there you may see several people, couples south of the Marine Corp fence line. They run the risk of either being escorted north of the fence line and or given a ticket(rarely happens). Most times the Marines will just tell you to move north of the fence line.

                        There are several regulars that frequent this beach and the Friends of San O Beach members help police inappropriate behavior so we don't lose our priviledge to be nude there. If you should see something, please don't hesitate to speak up and remind those, acting inappropriately, to stop what they are doing so we don't lose the beach.

                        You should have a great time. Lots of people, lots of activity and a nice section of beach that is clothing optional tolerant. Be sure to take some sandles or walking shoes for a stroll on the beach. This time of year there are lots of beach rocks exposed and it makes it difficult to walk the beach barefooted.

                          Here's another question: since I will likely only have one day out of my trip to California, would you recommend the beach, or a visit to a club like Glen Eden?

                          You can go to a club anywhere. The California beaches would be a more unique experience. You might also want to check out Black's Beach in San Diego. It is absolutely breathtaking. The only draw back is the scaling the cliffs (even though there is a pretty good trail) to get down to the beach; not to back going down but it may be challenging climbing back up. Just take your time and you'll be fine. But, be sure to wear good shoes for tne climb (not sandals).

                          Black's Beach is a lot of fun and has a nice mix of ages; although the majority of naked people are guys. It's great for walking, surfing, swimming, frisbee, volleyball, it has it all. Be sure to stay in the clothing optional area, north of the trail from the glider port, stopping a the muscle shoals beach to the north. It's where the rocks extend into the water.

                          Have fun where ever you go!

                            I've been to both beaches and I prefer San O'. I know some people like Blacks and I have enjoyed watching the para-sailers above the beach. I like the waves better off San O' I like to boogie board. I know I prefer the traffic around that area it gets kinda crazy near Del Mar. Both are good just different kinds of attitudes I find San O' more laid back.
