Where to Get Nude in San Fran

This week we take you through the Redwoods and to two San Francisco Nude Beaches.

Because we went over the holidays and in the winter there were actually many clothed tourists at both Marshall and Baker Beach. We are told that is very NOT typical. But, it explains all the clothing we have on.

Cheers!

Marshall Beach

Level of Nudity:The Full Monty

What You’ll See: Marshall Beach earns the distinction of being a mainly gay nude beach and having one of the best views of the bridge, so if both of those are your thing, get on it.

The Nude Part: Apparently all of it, though in particular the driftwood/rock cabana things that some past nude sunbathers have built.

Baker Beach

Level of Nudity: Game of Thrones

What You’ll See: As the largest urban nude beach, this place attracts the largest crowds and almost a Burning Man-type atmosphere with artwork, drums, and frisbee. Disclaimer: if you act like a weirdo and just stare at people, you will be told to leave.

The Nude Part: When you get to the beach, go to the right, past the “Hazardous surf, undertow, swim at your own risk” sign.

Naturism in Costa Rica

Columbus named this land Costa Rica because he saw a ray of sunshine on Uvita Island’s golden sands, located on the Caribbean coast, and he confused it with a rich treasure. Nowadays, this treasure corresponds to its 51000 square kilometers, which 50% is protected under state laws. 

This beautiful, green, and peaceful country has many getaways for being nude surrounded by nature, hot springs, and more.

Manuel Antonio: It is the most visited beach town in Costa Rica. It is located on the Central Pacific Coast, and here is the most visited National Park named Manuel Antonio National Park. Inside of this Park, you will find many white sandy beaches, trails, and private beaches. But, between Manuel Antonio and Quepos, you will find the only legal naturist beach in Costa Rica: Playa La Macha (Macha means “blonde girl” because many European blonde girls visited this beach)!

How to get there? From Quepos Expeditions, you need to walk down until Playa Las Vacas ( The Cows Beach). Then, you will see a Trail which it connects to La Macha Beach.

South Caribbean: The South Caribbean Area of Costa Rica has many white and black sandy beaches surrounded by forests. The visitors take skinny dipping at hotel pools and beaches like Punta Uva, Gandoca – Manzanillo, and Cahuita.

 

Nicoya Peninsula: It is located on the west side of Costa Rica and is named as one of five Blue Zones (where people typically surpass the global life expectancy – home to some of the healthiest, happiest people in the world) thanks to its weather, food, people, and nature. In this area, there are three hippie beach towns named Montezuma, Santa Teresa, and Mal País. These beach towns are famous for their beaches, yoga, surf, and open-minded hippie residents and visitors. 

Nosara: It is located at Guanacaste Province, West of Costa Rica. It is famous for being one of the most important surf and yoga beach towns globally. Naturism is received kindly and  accepted at hotel pools, yoga schools, and private beaches like Playa Guiones.

South Pacific: This region has 5% of worldwide biodiversity, and the beaches are virgin and surrounded by pristine forests, so, is the ideal place for being nude. 

Arenal Volcano Area: Located in La Fortuna de San Carlos, at the North Region of Costa Rica, the fantastic Arenal Volcano was the third most active volcano in the world from 1968 to 2010. La Fortuna is currently a small town with many hotels, hot springs, National Parks, Lakes, and several souvenir shops. You can be nude at some hot springs.
