Directions: From San Francisco, head west to Ocean Beach, then go south on the Great Highway. After Sloat Boulevard, the road goes uphill. From there, curve right onto Skyline Boulevard, go past one stoplight, and look for signs for Funston on the right. Turn into the public lot and find a space near the west side. At the southwest end, take the sandy steps to the beach, turn right, and walk to the dunes. Find a spot as far as possible from the parking lot. Do not go nude here on the weekends. And if you don't like dogs, go elsewhere.

 

LAS TRAMPAS REGIONAL WILDERNESS, CASTRO VALLEY

Nudity's banned in the East Bay Regional Park District, but if you tell that to the nude hikers who will be once again walking across park land July 23 and Aug. 22 — at night — they may moon you en masse. On America's only naked "Full Moon Hikes," participants leave the grounds of the Sequoians Naturist Club in Castro Valley fully clothed at dusk and walk through meadows and up hills until the moon rises, before heading back down the slopes with their clothes folded neatly into their backpacks. Says Dave Smith, of San Leandro: "It's truly wonderful. Except for deer, we're usually the only ones on the path." Agrees James, of Fremont: "It's one of the best experiences I've ever had. You're walking in this silvery light. The moonlight is flooding everything. You feel like you're in the middle of a beautiful dream."

Directions: Contact the Sequoians Naturist Club (www.sequoians.com) or the Bay Area Naturists (www.bayareanaturists.org) for details on how to join a walk. Participants usually meet at and return to the Sequoians Club. To get there, take Highway 580 east to the Crow Canyon Road exit. Or follow 580 west to the first Castro Valley off-ramp. Take Crow Canyon Road toward San Ramon 0.75 mile to Cull Canyon Road. Then follow Cull Canyon Road around 6.5 miles to the end of the paved road. Take the dirt road on the right until the "Y" in the road and keep left. Shortly after, you'll see the Sequoians sign. Proceed ahead for about another 0.75 mile to the Sequoians front gate.

 

DEVIL'S SLIDE, MONTARA

Will they be having a devil of a time in paradise? For the first time, rangers say they'll begin enforcing state anti-nudity regulations if offended beachgoers complain about the nudists who visit Gray Whale Cove, which is commonly called Devil's Slide. The good news: It's a nonissue because cell phones (used to summon rangers) don't work on the beach, so by the time cops arrive, the offenders have long since suited up or left. And the beach's top enforcer told us he won't be telling rangers to bust nudists they see. Most visitors love the long sandy shore, where nudies, about 20 percent of visitors, hang out on the north end.

Directions: Driving from San Francisco, take Highway 1 south through Pacifica. Three miles south of the Denny's restaurant in Linda Mar, turn left (inland or east) on an unmarked road, which takes you to the beach's parking lot and to a 146-step staircase leads to the sand. "The steps are in good shape," Ron says. Coming from the south on Highway 1, look for a road on the right (east), 1.2 miles north of the Chart House restaurant in Montara.

 

Comments

As a long time resident of Muir Beach I am in no way opposed to having nude sunbathers on the beach. As an adult, I am also not opposed to men walking around with hardware dangling from their units. What I am opposed to is lewd conduct on the beach that may offend any of my neighbors and their children.

I have seen just about everything you could imagine, including men jerking off and walking around the beach with hard-ons. This to me is not what I would call sunbathing.

The only thing a sunbather has to remember when coming to Muir Beach, is that, if they are cited for indecent behavior, its very likely that they could be tagged as a sex offender. This is a label that will be difficult to remove. So, you corporate types, yes the Google, Sun Microsystem and BofA worker this won't in anyway enhance your career. Try getting a job at the NSA when you have to explain that you were cited 8 years ago for walking around a beach with a set of rubber bands around your nuts.

Bathers beware!

The other day I saw two men nude on Market and 4th. They are often seen walking around the Castro. They were holding some sign to elect someone for something.

I honestly don't know what they are thinking. If it was really just about being nude they wouldn't have been wearing cock rings with their penises semi-erect. Also, if a person is going to be naked.... go to the gym!!!

The bad news is what ever statement they are trying to make is not the one that is coming through.

It's perfectly natural for people to walk around in the nude all over the world.But westerner's are so blasted uptight and twisted about it. All the gawking by the men on women and men on men.I thought the purpose was to enjoy the water and sun.If you want to have a contest of who has wins whatever award for this category go have a contest on the internet/cable for that.
Stop trying to make these beaches all about your selfish ego driven pleasure center's.
You want all this freedom but will not take any responsibility. The way we treat ourselves,each other and the Planet. It's really time to get real people. sorry. Just telling you how it looks from angle.
I am all for fun. someone has to clean up the house after the party.

peace to all-

Harold, what are you saying? Nudity is ok with you, but not lewdity?

Posted by johny why on Sep. 18, 2010 @ 7:28 pm

That is not right at all.. Walking naked on Market St? Have a little respect to your self - naked person!!

Posted by Guest on Aug. 23, 2010 @ 9:56 pm

the naked body is the most natural and beautiful thing in the world (ok, maybe not all bodies). be proud, naturists, be proud! share your bare with the malls of humanity and the halls of justice!

don't let Christian shame besmirch your good name.

but i agree that lewdity should be discreet. i don't want to see other people's sexual activities in public. that is disrespectful.

Why be opposed of a man's hard on. Some men like myself have a big dick. My dick looks like I am hard and sometimes I am.That may be lewd to some but impressive to others. If a hard on is caught by someone being stroked then that is one thing but if my dick is just hard and I am mining my business then that is another. That is no difference than some women with big butts and some with their butt hole exposed because their tiny butts. who can judge why some people body is different.
