Miami's Nude Beach: They Take It All Off



Finally, a history of Miami's nude beach at the north end of Haulover Park, which is the most popular in the nation. These guys -- and gals -- take it all off.

The beach has been around for about a decade. I decided to shoot a video of it after founder Richard Mason called to complain when we named it one of the best places to have covert sex. There are three sections of the beach: the gay part, the swinger area, and the just plain folks place on the south end.


When I was there, a volleyball game was underway, and most everything was good clean fun. Without further ado, listen to the founders talk about the place they go when it's warm.
