New York Nude Beaches and Resorts: Nude fun in the Empire State

New York Nude Beaches and Resorts

My wife and I love visiting nude beaches and resorts. We have been trying to compile a list of nude beaches and resorts across the United States and to visit as many of them as possible. In our search, we have tried to answer what is available for New York nude beaches and New York nude resorts?

New York does have some great options to spend time in the nude. While New York nude beaches are fairly limited, there is a nearby option that is one of the best in the country. There are a few New York nude resorts and some travel options that are pretty easy and affordable.

So let’s take a look at all that New York has to offer. We will look at New York nude beach options, naturist club options, New York swinger resorts, and a Special Note to Men that are new to the nudist lifestyle and may need some extra confidence.

New York Nude Beaches and Resorts Table

Empire HavenMoravia, NYResort/CampgroundNaturist

** Gunnison Beach is not in NY but is very popular and used by many New Yorkers

From the table above, you can see that there are a few options to go nude in New York. Considering that this is a cold-weather state, the options are not that bad.

While there are no New York nude beaches where you can go totally nude, topless sunbathing is legal in the state. This is pretty acceptable on at least one New York beach. Additionally, New York is right next door to one of the busiest nude beaches in the country.

You will also find a couple of New York nude resorts listed in the table. These are not the big resorts that you might find down south but they are nice additions to the list.

On the table above, you will see that each resort location has a designation of naturist or swinger lifestyle. If you are new to visiting nudist spots, you may not know the distinction.

You can find out more about the distinction by reading Naturist or Swinger Nude Resorts and Beaches.

If you are researching the nudity lifestyle, then I suggest checking it out for yourself. My wife and I have found that this lifestyle is very fun and we have met so many awesome people. Be sure to check it out at a place that fits your interest whether that is naturist or swinger.

If you are a guy and have some of the insecurities that I had about going nude be sure to check out Special Note to Men. I put off visiting these places for way too long and I wish that I had started years ago.

New York Nude Beaches

Tennessee Nude Beaches

Unfortunately, there are no public New York nude beaches that officially allow complete nudity. New York’s public lewdness law makes public nudity illegal.

While there are some public places in New York where public nudity is said to be accepted, you go nude at your own risk. Be very careful in these situations as you do not want to be put in a situation where you could face arrest. Especially, when there are other options.

Additionally, topless sunbathing is legal in New York is legal (source). So basically women can go topless at any beach but this is still not socially acceptable at most of them.

I have included below sections on two beaches. One is Lighthouse Beach where it used to be acceptable to go totally nude but now has a different policy. It is still reported to be a popular spot for some to go nude.

The second beach section is on the nearby Gunnison Beach which may be your best shot at a nude beach. This beach is one of the most popular nude beaches in the country is right next door to New York.

A great alternative to New York nude beaches would be the nudist resorts and campgrounds. So while these are not technically New York nude beaches, they are places where you can legally soak up the sun poolside while being naked. See the New York Nude Resorts for Naturists section below for more details.

If you are set on visiting some great nude beaches year-round, I would recommend checking out Florida Nude Beaches for some of the best nude beaches in the country.

Lighthouse Beach Fire Island

New York nude beaches Fire Island

Fire Island, NY

This public beach is part of the Fire Island National Seashore on Long Island. Prior to 2013, it was a clothing-optional beach in some sections. Since 2013, nudity is no longer accepted and is not recommended as it is technically a violation of the law.

Some people report that they still utilize this beach as a nude beach, but you do so at your own risk. However, it is legal in New York for women to go topless and this beach is an area where this is more acceptable.

Gunnison Beach

Middletown, New Jersey

Ok, I know that this beach is in New Jersey and not New York. But it is really close to New York and used by tons of people from New York. For that reason, I am including it in the listings for both New York nude beaches and New Jersey nude beaches.

Gunnison beach is the largest nude beach on the east coast of the United States. It has a great view of New York City and is very popular in the summer months.

This is one of those rare beaches where it is not only socially acceptable but also legal to take it all off and enjoy the sun in the buff. You can find close to a thousand nude sunbathers here on a hot summer day.

You will find all different ages and body types here so do not be bashful about baring it all.

Visiting Gunnison Beach is free. Use parking lot G in the Fort Hancock area of the Sandy Hook Unit of Gateway National Recreation Area.

This is the best nude beach you will encounter north of Florida.

Additional Possible New York Nude Beaches

The following are a number of spots in New York where it is reportedly acceptable to go nude. Once again, this is not technically legal and you do so at your own risk.

Alice Falls

This is a reported New York nude swimming spot near a beautiful waterfall in Keeseville, NY.

Skinny Dip Falls

Skinny Dip Falls is a remote gorge with waterfalls and multiple swimming holes. There are rocks with painted signs indicating nude sunbathing areas. The entrance to this trail can be found off the Taylor Rd in Westfield, NY.

Coxing Kill stream

This area at Mohonk Preserve in Gardiner has been a traditionally nudist area with even official posted signs about nudity. Unfortunately, they started enforcing New York nudity laws in 2020 though some still go nude in the area.

Stony Kill Falls

Stony Kill Falls is located in Minnewaska State Park Preserve. This New York nude swimming spot has a swimming hole where it is said that nudity is generally accepted. There is even an AllTrails guide to reaching the nude area.

Potter’s Falls

Nudity is reported to be accepted at a deep pool located below the waterfall in Six Mile Gorge. There is an AllTrail map for the path that leads to this spot in Ithaca, NY.

New York Nude Resorts for Naturists

These New York nude resorts and campgrounds are for naturists. They are family orientated so public sexual activity is discouraged. These can be very relaxing spots to visit and get the ultimate downtime in the buff.

If you are new to the nudist lifestyle, these resorts can be an excellent way to have your first experience.

Empire Haven

5947 Sun Lane
Moravia, New York 13118
(315) 497-0135

This New York nudist resort is an excellent family-orientated naturist spot. Empire Haven is a beautiful 97-acre campground located in the Finger Lakes area of New York.

This means that this is a nonsexual spot that is open to families including children. So this place is not a swinger lifestyle-friendly park in any of the public areas.

Please keep in mind that nudity is required in certain areas such as the pool and hot tubs.

If you are looking for a family-friendly naturist spot then this is probably for you. Empire Haven receives great reviews from users with most saying that they plan to return.

The amenities at Empire Haven include a heated swimming pool, large conversation hot tub, smaller hot tub, sauna, snack bar, pickleball courts, children’s playground, fishing pond, volleyball courts, horseshoe pits and walking trails,

There are rental cabins, camping spots, and RV hookups available for overnight stays. The rates on all of these are extremely affordable. Camping sites start at $55/night for nonmembers. RV sites start at $58/night for nonmembers. Cabins start at $105/night for nonmembers.

Non-member day rates for Empire Haven are $35 for an individual and $40 for a couple. If you have overnight accommodations, these fees are included in your rate.

Full Tan Sun Club

1350 Carlisle Rd,
Sprakers, NY 12166

The Full Tan Sun Club is a little naturist resort/campground in upstate New York. This is a family-friendly resort with nudity required in the pool areas.

While this is not the biggest location to visit, it does receive good reviews and has a loyal following.

Amenities at the Full Tan Sun Club include a pool, onsite cafe, yard games, and bonfires.

Nonmember grounds fees day rates to visit are $25 per day for a single and $45 for a couple. Overnight stays include grounds fees and are very reasonable. Cabins start at $85 per night, RV sites start at $45 per night, and camping sites start at $35 per night.

New York Naturist Nudist Groups

An additional option for naturists in New York is to utilize one of the local groups. These groups often host events and provide a great opportunity to meet and hang out with local naturist nudists.

These are naturist groups so it is important to remember that these groups do not promote sexual activity at their events.

Most of these organizations do not have an actual physical location to go nude but do sponsor events where they takeover local places and you get the opportunity to have a nude experience.

Niagara Naturists

The Niagra Naturists is a group in western New York that promotes and holds several nudist events. While they are not technically one of the New York nude resorts, they do have a lodge with numerous events throughout the year.

Naturist Rochester

PO Box 283
Penfield, New York 14526
(585) 244-1219

This is a naturist organization that hosts events throughout the year. They do not have a resort but help members to meet up at events.

Northern Exposure Sun Club

PO Box 12541
Albany, New York 12212
(518) 872-9207

This is another naturist organization that holds events and other nude fun opportunities throughout the year. Once again they do not have an actual physical location but they do sponsor takeover events at some local places.

New York Swinger Resorts

Unfortunately, there are no New York swinger resorts. This probably has more to do with the cold winter months than anything else.

If you definitely want the swinger experience, you can check out some New York swinger clubs. While these clubs are not quite New York Swinger resorts, they can offer the full swinger experience. Check out this New York Swingers Club article for full details on these clubs. That article has additional information on some swinger groups that sometimes do hotel takeover events that will basically turn a local hotels into New York swinger resorts for a weekend.

My wife and I are big fans of the swinger resorts and highly recommend that you should check them out. The easiest way for a New Yorker to experience these clubs would be to hop a low-cost flight to Florida and check out the Florida swinger resorts. It is a fun experience that you will never forget.

Special Note to Men

Whether you are considering going to New York nude beaches, New York nude resorts, or New York swinger resorts, many men have similar concerns before going. I know that I had two big concerns myself before going.

These two big concerns were about my penis size and erection quality. After visiting a ton of these nude spots, I can tell you for certain that these issues are only important if they affect your self-confidence. But if they bother you, you do not have to be ashamed and you can try to do something about it.

Erection quality is very important to most men whether or not they are looking at going to nudist spots. But if you want to be active in the swinger lifestyle, it can be very important to you. I know that when I had erectile dysfunction that it kept me from wanting to try out the swinger lifestyle.

If you have erectile dysfunction or are just worried about erection quality, Check out the Being Able to Perform to find out how I fixed my erection quality issues. I was able to actually fix my erection issues instead of just covering it up with pills and injections.

Penis size concerns do not have to be a big deal if you can get over them. At naturist spots, no one cares about penis size. At swinger spots, penis size is way down on the list of what people are concerned about.

If you can’t get over it (I couldn’t), there is something that you can do. It is not fast or easy but there is only one scientifically proven method that worked for me. Check out the Making an Impression section for more details.

Being Able to Perform

I tried everything to overcome my erectile dysfunction without success. I tried the prescription pills, supplements, penis injections, and vacuum devices/rings. After everything failed, I thought that penis implant surgery was my only option.

That is when I discovered acoustic wave therapy. This type of treatment was the cure for my erectile dysfunction and changed my life around.

I personally used the Phoenix device to help overcome my erectile dysfunction and strongly recommend it to any man with concerns about his erection quality. The Phoenix is a fully functional FDA-registered device for home use with a 98% success rate.

The Phoenix device is shown to fix poor blood flow which is the leading cause of ED. Additionally, the Phoenix safely eliminates plaque in penile blood vessels and triggers the growth of more blood vessels. Do not just live with erection problems when you can do something about it.

Making an Impression

In regards to penis size, there is only one way to actually increase your penis size. This is not through the use of magic pills, lotions, or any other quick and easy fix. The use of penis traction devices is the only way that works but it takes time and effort.

This is the only method that has been scientifically studied and proven to work for penis enlargement. This is not easy and you need to really be committed to the use of these devices in order for it to work. With these devices and a commitment on my part, I was able to add over an inch of length to my penis.

To find out more about penis traction devices be sure to read Do Penis Traction Devices work? This article contains information about the devices, scientific studies about the devices, and my personal results using the devices.
