      Natural place for naturists
      The beach is in easy reach from Manhatan although the ferry price is quite steep. The trip takes 45 min and costs 46 USD return. The beach itself is covered with gold sand and is very wide. Clothing is fully optional so you can either walk all natural or dressed in your newest swimwear. There is a mix of people coming. Lots of them are enjoying their retirement but there are also college students and professionals. The crowd is mixed both straight and gay. Water is a bit chilly but after you get use to it you can enjoy a good swim.

      Gunnison is fabulous!
      I am a regular day tripper to Gunnison... lovely beach, nudity, beautiful! I normally go on weekdays, because parking fills up quickly on weekends - if I go on a Saturday, I get there early. Highly recommended.

      Sandy Hook "Au Naturale"
      For our friends who shun tan lines, Gunnison Beach section of Sandy Hook National Recreation Area is an "officially" sanctioned, clothing-optional beach! Part of the Sandy Hook unit of the Gateway National Recreational Area, Gunnison Beach is the only nude beach in New Jersey and is the largest clothing-optional beach on the East Coast. Gunnison attracts over 5,000 naturists per weekend in the summer months and is fully sanctioned with National Park Service Lifeguards (no hassels) with facilities at the entrance. There is also a "snack shack" on the beach. There is a large group of volleyball players at Gunnison Beach. The net is in place from early spring to late fall. If you love to play volleyball, come try your luck at beating their championship team. The beach fills so quickly on the weekend that they close it down to car traffic around 11AM - then reopen around 2 PM. Enjoy your beach experience "au naturale!"
