The Nudist Traveler

A Day at the Beach

One of my favorite places to go nude is Apollo Beach in the Canaveral National Seashore near New Smyrna Beach, FL. I have been there a few times, the most recent time being last fall. I had a fantastic time last fall and walked a long ways down the beach, maybe a little too much due to the burns I had afterwards.

I also enjoyed skinny dipping out in the ocean during my walks. I used to play out in the surf, as a kid. Not so much as an adult. I was having the most fun I've had in a very long time those days.

I remember a very memorable day, maybe 10 years back. I was needing a naturist day when we were in South Georgia for a vacation. I drove all the way down to Apollo Beach for a walk, but when I got there, there was a storm brewing off the coast of Florida and it was windy, overcast and a little rainy, but that didn't stop me from getting out for a walk! The beach was deserted, but that was the most fantastic walk I've ever had!

I recommend Apollo Beach! Go on the weekday or get there early on the weekends to find a parking spot! Go to the last parking lot. Walk several hundred yards to get to the nude area! Have fun! :)


Over the past 25+ years I have been enjoying life and traveling to well over 40 countries mostly Western Europe, just recently I have had the pleasure of experiencing the very friendly, laidback, and idyllic island of Antigua. The island belonged to the UK until the mid-80s so that influence can still be seen, although the sincere charm of such an island paradise is readily apparent.

Literally 100s of beaches, none of which are crowded, so without much effort one can easily find your own private little paradise. Eden Beach is the only official clothing optional beach on the island which is conveniently located by a resort on Hawksbill Bay. I so very much enjoyed the vast quiet beach with its vibrant, almost neon blue warm waters, coconut trees, exotic birds, and quiet unspoiled atmosphere.

It is a multinational setting, which I think really adds to the overall experience and is infused with the cliché' don't worry be happy attitude. No need for TVs, watches, laptops, etc., rather lots of sun tan oil and Raybans will suffice.


In 2007 when I drove east my first stop was Shangri La in Arizona. I really like this place. After checking in and walking the dogs I walked to the pool. There were about a dozen people in the pool so I joined them. The water seemed cold to me so I swam over to where the pool thermometer was to see what the temperature was. It read 86 degrees! Then I saw that the air temp. was 114! Sure is nice to be able to get into a nice cool pool! The next day I drove to Wildwood in Texas, I told them I had read about them in N magazine. They said the article was about Bluebonnet. I stayed at Wildwood and went to Bluebonnet when I left. Both places were nice, friendly.
After leaving Texas, my next stop was in Oaklake Trails in Oklahoma. I like Oaklake trails. The people are friendly and the grounds are nice.
From Oaklake Trails I drove to Memphis to Wal-Mart to spend the night. The next day I drove to Murfreesboro, Tenn to Rock Haven Lodge. It was my first visit there. It's a nice, friendly place. They have a model car race track and a model railroad that is big enough for kids to ride. I then drove to Crossville,Tenn. To Cherokee Lodge. Cherokee Lodge is one of my favorites. I have visited it before.
I than drove to Carolina Foothills Resort in SC. Foothills is a small resort, very friendly and pleasant to visit. After my visit I drove to my niece's in Rock Hill. SC. Had a nice visit with her and her family. I stopped at Bar-S- Ranch in NC and White Tail Resort in Va. White Tail is a great resort, especially if you are there for the beach party! From there I drove north to my family gathering in Maryland. I stopped at Maryland Health Society for a day and than I spent a day at Pine Tree Associates before going to the KOA for my visit with my family.
On the way home I stopped at Sunshower Country Club in Centerville, Indiana. From there I drove home on I-80. No nudist resorts along I-8.



On my trip east to visit my family I drove down to Las Vegas to go east on I-40. I have found that the nudist resorts along I-40 are spaced about two days drive at my pace. I stop at Wal-Mart or Sam's Clubs between my stops at nudist resorts. My first stop is usually Shangri La in Arizona. I like Shangri La. They have two pools and the folks are friendly.
From Shangri La I usually stop overnight at the Wal-Mart on the east side of Albuquerque, NM. My next stop is Oklahoma City Wal-Mart. From there I stop a OaklakeTrails in OK. From Oaklake Trails I drive to Memphis Tenn, overnighting at Wal-Mart again. The next day I drive the Cherokee Lodge in Crossville. The next stop is Carolina Foothills. From there I drive to My niece's home in Rock Hill, SC. From there I drive to Bar-S-Ranch. I drive to Pine Tree before I go to the KOA near my niece's home for my family gathering.
This year I visited Paradise Gardens near Cincinnati, Ohio. This is a nice resort, but the RV spot I was assigned left a little bit to be desired. The Electrical was faulty. My next stop was Sunshower Country Club in Indiana. From there I drove home on I-80.

Trial By Fire.......

July 4th weekend and we needed to find an RV park near OK City as a stop on our cross country trip to Canada. All places were full except Oaklake Trails, and after reading more about it and seeing the video, we knew this was the place for us. We have always been nudists in our home but this was a great way to commune with others and practice our beliefs.

What a fantastic park and incredible members! We felt so comfortable we came back on the turn around and now keep in touch with the great friends we made. We quickly joined AANR and will always keep up our membership to help promote a social and political change in attitude toward nudity in our society.

So, I guess we were led to this wonderful park for a reason. We hope the more we travel, the more we can meet other members and get involved in the cause. Thank you to everyone we met, especially our delightful hosts.
