By Dawn Henthorn. Florida can no longer cover up the naked truth. Nude and clothing-optional resorts are taking off. Organized nudity became the fashion in the early 20th century in Germany as a way of shedding the too-tight collars for less restrictive clothing. After World War II, the idea caught on as international tourism took hold. Today it is a worldwide practice, although not always widely accepted.

Are there any clothing optional beaches near Jacksonville? Just south of Ponte Vedra is Guana Beach. No nude beaches around here. Not only are there no nude beaches, but a couple years ago I heard thong bikinis were illegal! You'll have to drive for a couple of hours.
