Tips about Lighthouse Beach -
***UPDATE*** By February 12, 2013 Lighthouse Beach is no longer a clothing-optional beach. National Park Service has declared that they'll now be enforcing New York state law, prohibiting nudity. Click here to read the Superintendent's notice concerning this policy change. T here have previously been problems on Lighthouse Beach, but Hurricane Sandy (fall of 2012) was really the last nail in the coffin.
The hurricane utterly ruined the dunes along the sand, which is one of the reasons cited by NPS for the nudity ban. (The dunes previously served as a visual block to the bare sunbathers.)
The Naturist Action Committee (NAC) is currently working on alternatives to the problems mentioned and seeking a means to save this wonderful naked beach for naturist and naturist use. Nonetheless, it's a really complicated scenario and will take a while and work to try and solve it. To further understand the situation, read an interview with Chief Ranger Lena Koschmann.(Please note: Ms. Koschmann has been quoted in several locations giving deceptive information on the legality of women going topfree on the playa.
The legality here isn't "tricky" or cloudy whatsoever as she has maintained it to be. It is entirely legal for women to go topless on public beaches in NY state, no matter what junk you hear from NPS.)
Robert Moses Nude Beach or Lighthouse Beach, on the Fire Island National Seashore off of Long Island, NY continues to be ranked as among the top 10 bare beaches in the U.S. Its rank is well-deserved as the playa is pristine, amazing, and the water is clean. The nudist beach is situated just next to Robert Moses State Park, where the dunes are thick with vegetation and dwelling to some good amount of wildlife. Its name originates in the notable lighthouse situated between the clothes optional segments.
No one is sure when naked sunbathing started on this part of the coast. The first reports of this activity date back to the 1950's. The Robert Moses Causeway enormously enhanced access to the park in 1964, and its popularity seems to have taken off from there.
Since the 1980s, use of the Lighthouse as a historic landmark attraction has ignited controversy over the existence of naturists on the playa. It really is open to visitors, which included teachers with groups of schoolchildren. Some teachers complained about the observable naturists plus some just did not need to have explain to kids that we're all, in fact, naked under our clothes. There was also concern from parents who parked at field 5 for its handicap accessibility, or who entered at field 5 after taking the ferry with their kids, and would see the bare sunbathers.
Members of the Lighthouse Preservation Society had differing opinions, but did not need to prohibit anyone. Negotiations resulted in a little portion in front of the lighthouse becoming cloth. Consequently the once long expanse of clothing optional beach was divide into two large sections, with a textile part in between. The western c/o section may also be known as Kismet West to differentiate it from the eastern c/o part. The sections are all clearly marked by signs, so you will understand where nudity is allowed and where it's not. Needless to say, it really is legal to go topfreeon all public shores in NY state since 1992.
General Info and Suggestions about Lighthouse Beach
Lighthouse Beach is fairly narrow and can get a bit crowded when the weather is right, though the western section is allegedly less congested. Overall it's a really nice feeling, and most of sunbathers are nude. Visitors signify an extensive range of ethnic backgrounds and ages. Some of them are families, as it really is a very family-friendly surroundings.
Park Rangers occasionally drive through several times a day to check up. There aren't any lifeguards. There is a shop carrying beach essentials at the Field 5 parking lot, but no concession stands on the beach. There aren't any trash bins on the sand, so take in, carry out.
Price and How Exactly To Get to Lighthouse Beach on Long Island
The strand is about 1 hour to 1.5 hour drive from New York City. Once you arrive at Robert Moses State Park, it's a quick drive down to Field 5 to get to the clothes optional sections. The price is $10 per car or a season pass can be acquired for $65. The playa is a 5-10 minute walk in the parking lot.
Though it's a considerably less suitable strategy to use, it really is accessible by public transportation. Directions: Take the LIRR train to Babylon. From there, take the S-47 Suffolk bus, which will get you to Robert Moses Field 3 in about 20 minutes. From there it's about a 30 minute walk to Field 5. LIRR offers a round-trip train bus package for $19. (Subsequently entrance to the plage is free.)
As an alternative, take the LIRR to Bay Shore station, then walk to the Fire Island Ferries and take the ferry to Kismet. Once on Fire Island, walk south to the plage. Visit the ferry site for more information: http://www.fireislandferries.com/
Lighthouse Beach Unclothed Etiquette and Politics
Whaa? I simply want to love the strand!
Well lucky for us, Lighthouse is an established clothing optional beach found on Federal land. While NY state law would forbid nude sunbathing, National Park Service picks to respect the conventional unclothed use and not enforce the law. However, the unavoidable facts are the NPS could pick to end this convention at a minute's notice and start enforcing state law.
Improper sexual activity is often seen as the largest issue facing naked beaches, as it can be adequate reason to shut a unclothed beach like Lighthouse. Please act responsibly and read over the etiquette outlined here before your visit.
There are https://s3.amazonaws.com/naturist2020/family-nudist-pics.html of celebrated presence on the playa: SaveLighthouseBeach.org Strand Ambassadors and the Long Island Travasuns. These organizations work to educate visitors of proper etiquette and help patrol the playa to stop unwanted behavior. (The playa ambassadors usually put in place an information table next to the boardwalk and may also be seen by their distinguishable hats.)
