best nude beaches miami

Miami does not only stand for parties, beaches and nightlife. The second largest city in Florida is also a popular destination when it comes to nude sunbathing etc. In the following guide we give you tips on where to find the best nudist places in Miami.

Best Nude Beaches in Miami

  • Haulover Beach Park
  • South Beach
  • Hollywood Beach
  • Crandon Park
  • Oleta River State Park

Haulover Beach Park

Compared to the other nudist places in Miami this nudist beach is by far the most popular one. It’s located at a very touristic location directly on the Atlantic Ocean next to Bal Harbour and Sunny Isles Beach, however it can be accessed by car or public transport.

There are about 3 km of rolling white sand along the Atlantic, so there’s enough space for everybody even when it gets crowded here in winter (especially weekends). Haulover Beach is clothing-optional since 1990 and every year more popular. There’s only one disadvantage: you can’t be naked all day long. At about 5 pm the beach attendants start to put out the “No Nudity” signs and there’s a $100 fine if you ignore that.

There is a snack bar, three restaurant pavilions and a parking lot of almost 400 spaces. There are shower facilities with fresh water and restrooms for changing clothes. Nevertheless it’s better to go there early (before 11 am) in order to find a nice spot.

South Beach

Nudist people love to hate this district of Miami known for its chic, upscale nightlife. But if you ignore the many bars and clubs around Ocean Drive and Collins Avenue it’s a nice place to be.

South Beach is a narrow sand bar about 11 km long and it’s primarily visited by the gay community, but there are also some heterosexual people as well. In general there aren’t many naturist places in Miami, but South Beach is one of the rare exceptions with dozens of clothing-optional beaches from 12th Street all the way up to 23rd Street.

Many of them are small private beaches with just enough space for a couple of sun beds and it’s difficult to relax there without being disturbed by passers-by or beach attendants. The easiest solution is to rent an umbrella, chair and table which works out cheaper than buying drinks at one of the nearby bars and restaurants.

If you go early in the morning (before 10 am) it’s even possible to find a nice spot without any disturbance at all. The downside is that they are often crowded in late afternoon when everybody comes back from work or partying the whole night long. In my opinion this narrow sand bar is more suitable for surfing, reading and taking pictures than for naturism.

Hollywood Beach

The third best known nudist beach in Miami is located just west of South Beach within a residential district called Hollywood. There’s no official nude beach, but on Hollywood Beach you can see people swimming and sunbathing on the west side of the pier.

Crandon Park

The fourth best known nudist place in Miami is located less than 20 km south of Haulover Beach next to Key Biscayne. Here you find the events plaza that hosts several major sports competitions. That’s a popular place for naturists during the day, but rarely at night.

Oleta River State Park

Last but not least this park located within a short distance from downtown Miami is another good option for nudists who don’t want to go to South Beach. The main entrance is located just south of the intersection of I-195 and NW 36th Street/NE 2nd Ave, but there are several other access points as well which makes it possible to avoid the often congested main entrance.
