Fred, my best advice on avoiding law enforcement hassles is pay attention to who's nearby, which is pretty easy when you're a mile away from anybody. In 20 years of nude sunning on Masonboro, Lea and Hutaff Islands, I saw a sheriff's deputy only once. That came after some snotty kid on a 4-wheeler -- who drove by us FOUR TIMES to get a good look -- called 911 from a cell phone to complain. The deputy arrived by boat, and said: don't worry about nude sunbathing, just don't parade around when there's somebody nearby. Since then I've learned the Sheriff's Dept. has pretty much abandoned its boat patrol for budget reasons. On the Outer Banks, rangers have said pretty much the same thing: you're cool unless there are other folks nearby. But that's been several years ago, so not 100% sure what the story is at Cape Lookout seashore.
Fred, I don't know about the southern end of the S.C. coast. But in North Carolina, places to consider are:
* Bird Island, right on the NC-SC state line, accessible on foot or by boat from Sunset Beach
* Masonboro Island. This is an eight-mile long barrier island beach between Wrightsville Beach and Carolina Beach. It's accessible only by boat. You may need to walk a few hundred yards to get away from "textile" areas at each end of the island. The middle is pretty much deserted all the time and perfect for nude recreation.
* Lea and Hutaff Islands. Barrier islands much like Masonboro, but smaller. Between Figure Eight Island and Topsail Island, accessible from Wilmington or Topsail by boat.
* Bear Island (Hammocks Beach State Park.) Free pontoon boat ferry. Be prepared to walk a mile or more to get away from textile crowds.
* Cape Lookout National Seashore. The Shackelford Banks, Core Banks and Portsmouth Island segments are all totally wild, but accessible by private boat or by U.S. Govt.-franchised ferry services.
What all these places have in common is wilderness and seclusion. There is no organized nude-beach movement in NC, sorry to say, so don't expect much of a social scene like you'd find in parts of California or Florida (or even New Jersey!) But for a pure natural experience, I haven't found any better places anywhere.
There are nudists in NC, but they do seem to be scarce. If you aren't comfortable at a resort -- and there is a very nice one in the southeastern part of the state -- there are wonderful secluded beaches where a body can soak up the sun undisturbed. And, of course, some of us also like to hang out nude at home and would welcome more social contacts with fellow nudists.
Our winter is not over yet.we have to hide behind our cloths.It is chilly for us to see other people without anything during our winter.
You are hiding behind everything.Can you expose yourself to see how you look like?
