2015 my wife dragged me down to Gunnison. (I know, I know, its usually the other way around..lol.) We sat right on the line of where the clothing optional beach started. Still fully clothed, we started drinking tequila. Within a half hour my wife turns to me and says "i dont know about you but, I came here to get naked". Not to be outdone,(thanks to the tequila) before she could undress I jumped up and removed my bathing suit before she did. We both burst out laughing.
Then the ranger came by and asked us to please move over into clothing optional area.
We were both hooked and try and make it down as much as possible now. Met some really nice folks along the way. Looking foward to 2017, it cant come fast enough. I wish we discovered this years ago.
Question: How does Gunnison compare to other nude beaches? It seems the social atmosphere at Gunnison is unmatched compared to other places we have read about.
I'm not new to nudity, just new to this site. I have attended the spa parties in Delaware and have gone to the beach a couple of times. I haven't been in a couple of years but I miss it a lot so I will be back soon. I just wanted to say hello to everyone and to say keep on living clothes free!!
While sitting at July Duty this morning with nothing to do but watch the snow fall I started to search twitter. Low and behold I found @GunnisonBeach. Other than my post a few weeks ago it looks like the last post was in 2011. Has anyone ever used it?
As we are anxiously awaiting warmer weather and our return to Gunnison I had an interesting thought.
Many of us are members of this forum & not just readers and some are frequent commenters. Here’s my thought: what if someone designed a logo of some sort so that we could all share. Download, purchase, etc. Then, when we go to Gunny we could post the logo somewhere near where we sit and then fellow members could quickly recognize that we are one of them. It would be an easy way to get acquainted in person and perhaps develop an even closer Community.
Just throwing it out as food for thought. What do you think?
Crappy winter! No beach days so far. Shitty weather even borked the polar plunge. Argh!
Last year was awesome. Made a bunch of winter trips.
Has anyone been to Gunnison recently? Beach report??
Might go tomorrow (1/21). No sun, but 50 and light winds. I can make that work. Not expecting a big crowd though.
I have heard from an electrician friend who's been working at the food consession at Gunny that they do not plan to reopen the consession this year but will still have food trucks to choose from. Just in case anyone might be interested.
Can anyone give me some information about nude experience at Playalinda beach? I had enough of this cold waether. Wanna shed my clothes and have some good time. But, I'm not sure about the crowd size during winter. I will appreciate any feedback.
Thanks in Advance
One of the most frequent questions posed is "How do I ask friends to go to the nude beach with me?"
You just ASK. It worked for this newcomer (link), read it for yourself: "Yesterday was my very first time to a nude beach, nude anything really. I had a blast. My friend who is a seasoned veteran goes all the time and she asked me the day before if i wanted to go and i gladly accepted."
See how easy that is? No worries, just enjoy.
Just saw this story and had to share it!!!!!!
The following is from the December 2016 issue of the Haulover Beach Newletter.
First serious concern: We are now faced with a new threat to our naturist beach. The percentage of visiting and regular beachgoers who wear clothing appears to increase each month. Haulover's naturist beach is a public beach and therefore requires the label of a clothing-optional beach. But "clothing-optional" are the code words for a nude beach.
New visitors who want to try the nude beach experience as well as old-time naturists feel uncomfortable when they find themselves surrounded by clothed beach visitors. Most are minding their own business, but there are always a few that ruin a naturist's beach experience by their rude behavior.
Secondary issue: These clothed visitors take up the limited parking spaces in the North Parking Lot as well as at the north end of Parking Lot No. 1. (That is the lot with several "Lake Haulovers" in the middle of it.) We have received phone calls from visitors complaining about the issue. One new visiting couple stated they would not be returning because they did not want to be "eye candy" for gawkers.
Has anyone here been to the Delaware Spa Parties? My girlfriend and I have been enjoying Gunnison during the fair weather months, but now are looking for something to do during the winter months. We were eyeing up the party on Dec 10th, but wanted to poll the group to see if anyone has been to these, and what we can expect there.
Hello to all,
Just an introduction. Have been lurking for a while and thought it time to say hi. I've been going to Gunnison a couple times a year for past couple years. Married to a textile who's not against my trips to CO beaches however she's not inclined to try it herself. :( She will accompany me though. We just got back from Apollo Beach and Blind Creek Beach earllier this month.
I've more or less been a home naturist all my life. Finally, in my late 40's I got it together and started to visit Gunnison. Am now hooked! Sad it took me so long, especially since I live in South Jersey. The area around Gunnison also holds special memories for me as I grew up going to Asbury Park and Bradley Beach as a kid. I'm also into bicycling and Sany Hook is like Nirvana to me with the awesome trails, historical sites and abundant wildlife. Can't wait for another season!
Saw the weather report and had to do one more trip to Gunny today. Wind was 13 out of the SE, 60* and the sun was bright. Put up the windscreen and I was good to go. Almost 100 people, singles, couples and about a half dozen dogs. Stayed about 3-1/2 hours and got a nice sun burn. It was my first trip in about 6 weeks. It will probably be my last till March or April. The day was great until I walked back to my car. Someone's dog pooped on the board walk and the owner did not clean it up. If you didn't go you missed a great day!
