( Seems like a a nude beach may be gone...
There are those who look for a reason to close nude beaches. Be careful not to give them one.
So, I have been interested to go to a nude beach for quite some time. Not to gauk, but to feel the freedom of it all. Most importantly to try it out, and hopefully enjoy it. I have lived in the monmouth county area for over 20 years now, and just never went. Well I finally made it out today, 5/25/16. Went fully naked as soon as I got myself situated. Wow, you guys arent kidding about the hike. Mostly kept to myself, and just took it all in, and enjoyed sunning in the nude. A very different, in a good way, experience then I anticipated. Was nervous about other people. Seems the same thing every new person from what I have read is feeling before they go. Definately looking foward to going again! Could turn into one of my favorite NJ beaches.
Both 28 looking for other young couples who go to gunnison beach. Would love to chat and maybe skype so when we meet on beach ain't that weird lol. Let's us know
Who is going Wed? Always like to meet new people
The weather looks very good for Wednesday. Hopefully many people will feel the same way and make plans to go to the beach.
Looking to share a ride from Trenton area, close to Rt 1 and I-195, walking distance to I-295 exit ramp.
I have a Senior National Park pass to allow half price entrance.
I am 64, intelligent, well educated, well rounded, and a good conversationalist if you choose.
I'll be there!
Stuck with weekends, wasn't much to work with this week. But the WWII people were going to be at the Gunny bunker today, so I figured it was worth a shot.
Walked onto the beach, 11am, raining. Less than ideal beach weather. But there were people out there! Leave it to Gunny. I set up my umbrella and waited out the weather. Sun came out!! At least for a while. Was mostly cloudy but warm enough. Really was not a bad day at all. Typical... about 4pm the south wind kicked in and chilled down the beach. Had to leave then.
Some notable observations....
South end was still open.
The bird people roped off a section in the middle of the main beach. Can't see anything inside, except shells.
There was a photo shoot. 3 clothed dudes and a blond nude model. They had a step ladder. First time I have seen a ladder at Gunnison.
Water is still very cold. Went in, but only for a brief time.
Something else new, a bell.. ringing out to sea. Could be a buoy. Not sure. Been going to Gunny for years, can't remember hearing a bell.
Oh, and the WWII thing was very cool. Those guys deserve a lot of credit. All volunteer, and they are restoring the Gunnison battery, and giving really informative tours. I highly recommend taking advantage of those, next time they are there.
I used to drive into NYC somewhat regularly but it has been at least 15 years since I've been there. Just stumbled onto this story on FB that an all nude cast put on the Tempest in Central Park. They did the show for two days. Would have been fun to go to. The most annoying thing is the comments on the FB post from people condemning how horrible nudity is. One of the "best" posts was from somebody saying, how dare they do this in the park, people take their children there! Yeah, that's a big danger, children seeing nude people acting in an outdoor play...not to mention all of the violence they see on tv, the drugs they are exposed to at school, etc.
I've never seen the beach this empty...
The weather has been cold, bad, suckie, annoying and a few other unmentionables, but has anyone been there and is willing to give a beach report?
Please clarify: I've read in various posts that the blue mats are & probably the beach is under water. Is that a condition that has passed or is the area still flooded? Hope to make a visit on Friday and would like to know what to expect.
Thanks for the update,

I went to Gunnison for the first time last year in June and while it was a fun experience the water, combined with the wind velocity, made it a far nippier day at the beach than I had expected! At what velocity do you find that the wind speed is just too higher for a beach day? And what isyour ideal temperature for a beach day at Gunnison?
