Haulover Beach – Miami Beach, FL

We have been wanting to go to a nude beach for some time and although Haulover was 4.5 hours away, we decided to give it a try.

The website says it has been described as one of the best nude beaches in the world.  We believe them!  The water was clear and the temperature in early July was perfect.

Our trip was awesome!  The only thing that could be made clearer is how everything is laid out for first time beachgoers.  Here are some tips for first timers, from some first timers.

  • The bulk of the parking is located across the street from the beach.  They charge $6.00 to park.  There is a tunnel under the street to get you to the beach.
  • When you come out of the tunnel, there is a lighthouse structure on your left – this is the lifeguard base.  Walk past it and look to your right at the little alleyways leading to the beach.  The first ones you come to don’t have signs that mention “naked bathers”, but if you keep walking you do come upon signs that do.  There is fence between the Nude and Prude beaches and when you see the signs, your on the other side of the fence.
  • They rent umbrellas, cabanas, and beach lounges if you don’t want to carry your own.  Lounges were $10 and umbrellas were $12.
  • Find a spot and set up camp.  Then take off your clothes, put on some waterproof sunscreen, and go in for a dip!  That’s another point, wear clothes that are easy to get off and on.  It’ll save a lot of time!
