Informations about Lighthouse Beach - Long Island Nude Beach
***UPDATE*** As of February 12, 2013 Lighthouse Beach is not any longer a clothing-optional beach. National Park Service has announced that they'll now be applying New York state law, prohibiting nudity. Just click here to read the Superintendent's notice concerning this policy change. There have formerly been dilemmas on Lighthouse Beach, but Hurricane Sandy (fall of 2012) was really the last nail in the coffin.
The hurricane completely destroyed the dunes along the playa, which is among the reasons cited by NPS for the nudity prohibition. (The dunes previously functioned as a visual block to the naked sunbathers.)
The Naturist Action Committee (NAC) is currently working on solutions to the issues cited and looking for a means to save this lovely naked beach for naturist and naturist use. Nevertheless, it is a very complex situation and will take a while and work to try to resolve it. To further comprehend the situation, read an interview with Chief Ranger Lena Koschmann.(Please note: Ms. Koschmann has been quoted in several locations giving misleading information on the legality of women going topfree on the strand.
The legality here isn't "tricky" or unclear whatsoever as she has promised it to be. It is entirely legal for women to go topless on public beaches in NY state, regardless of what rubbish you hear from NPS.)
Its rank is well-deserved as the plage is pristine, beautiful, and the water is clean. The nudist beach is situated just next to Robert Moses State Park, where the dunes are thick with plant life and dwelling to some fair amount of wildlife. Its name originates from the prominent lighthouse situated between the clothes optional segments.
History Of Lighthouse Beach
No one is sure when bare sunbathing began on this particular part of the coast. The first reports of the action date back to the 1950's. The Robert Moses Causeway enormously improved 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 historical landmark draw has ignited controversy over the existence of nudists on the sand. It really is open to visitors, which included teachers with groups of schoolchildren. Some teachers complained about the visible nudists and some just didn't want to have explain to children that we're all, in fact, naked under our clothes. There was also concern from http://macgallery.net who parked at field 5 for its handicap access, or who entered at field 5 after taking the ferry with their kids, and would see the unclothed sunbathers.
Members of the Lighthouse Preservation Society had differing opinions, but didn't need to prohibit anyone. Dialogues resulted in a small part facing the lighthouse becoming fabric. Consequently the once long expanse of clothing optional beach was split into two huge segments, with a textile part in between. The western c/o segment is sometimes known as Kismet West to differentiate it from the eastern c/o part. The sections are clearly marked by signs, so you will know where nudity is permitted and where it's not. Obviously, it really is legal to go topfreeon all public beaches in NY state since 1992.
General Information and Tips about Lighthouse Beach
Lighthouse Beach is fairly narrow and can get a bit crowded when the weather is right, although western segment is supposedly less congested. Overall it's an incredibly agreeable setting, and most of sunbathers are naked. Visitors represent an extensive variety of ethnic backgrounds and ages. Some of them are families, as it's a very family-friendly surroundings.
Park Rangers periodically drive through several times a day to check up. There are no lifeguards. There is a shop carrying beach essentials at the Field 5 parking lot, but no concession stands on the playa. The closest bathrooms are found on the rocky road off the boardwalk or at the parking lot. There aren't any trash bins on the beach, so carry in, carry out.
Price and The Best Way To Get to Lighthouse Beach on Long Island
Once you arrive at Robert Moses State Park, it's a quick drive down to Field 5 to get to the clothing optional sections. The price is $10 per car or a season pass can be acquired for $65. The sand is a 5-10 minute walk in the parking lot.
Though it's a much less suitable way to go, it is reachable 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 is approximately a 30 minute walk to Field 5. LIRR offers a roundtrip train bus package for $19. (Then entrance to the beach is free.)
As a substitute, take the LIRR to Bay Shore station, then walk to the Fire Island Ferries and take the ferry to Kismet. After on Fire Island, walk south to the plage. See the ferry site for more information: http://www.fireislandferries.com/
Lighthouse Beach Naked Etiquette and Politics
Whaa? I simply need to love the beach!
Well lucky for us, Lighthouse is an established clothing optional beach located on Federal land. While NY state law would forbid bare sunbathing, National Park Service chooses to honor the conventional unclothed use and not apply the law. However, the inescapable truth is that the NPS could choose to stop this tradition at a moment's notice and start enforcing state law.
Hence it is very essential for visitors to conduct themselves in a respectful manner and obey all laws and regulations. Improper sexual activity is frequently seen as the largest issue facing bare beaches, as it can be adequate reason to shut a unclothed beach like Lighthouse. Please behave responsibly and read over the etiquette summarized here before your visit.
http://shynudists.com can find two naturist organizations of notable presence on the plage: SaveLighthouseBeach.org Plage Ambassadors and the Long Island Travasuns. young nudism pics work to inform visitors of proper etiquette and help patrol the strand to stop unwanted behaviour. (The strand ambassadors normally create an information table next to the boardwalk and also can be seen by their distinguishable hats.)
