Clothing Optional Beaches
San Onofre State Beach
Getting naked is tolerated, but when complains arise, officials will ask you to put your clothes on. It's all about playing by the rules.
There is a small fee for the parking area, which fills up soon at the weekends.
How to get there: Take from I-5 the Basilone Road southwest until reaching the State Park.
Then walk on Trail 6 in southern direction until you find like-minded fellows.
This area compromies the southern section of the beach from the life guard tower to a fence where Camp Pendleton military base begins.
Keep a slight distance to the life guard and don't cross the line to the military base.
Probably the most popular optional clothing beach of the area and the west coast.
The beach is situated just north of San Diego in La Jolla and south of Torrey Pines State Beach.
Take care that you don't mistake Black's Beach (State) with the one of the city, where clothing optional is not permitted.
A steep trail, beginning at Torrey Pines Scenic Rd, leads down to the beach.
This zone is mostly quite crowded, sometimes up to 10,000 persons have been counted.
How to get there:
From San Diego drive I-5 northwards and take exit Genessee Ave. westwards.
When reaching North Torrey Pines Rd, turn left and the next possible road right.
This should be Torrey Pines Scenic Rd.. Drive until you reach the start point for the paragliders.
