I recently wrote an article about "Nude Beaches in Texas" and, to my surprise, found that the Lone Star State has quite a few. When I first wrote the article I thought I would find only one or two nude beaches in Texas. Surprisingly, I learned there are several beaches and private pool resorts anyone over 18 can attend.

When in a work meeting earlier this week, we were talking about past articles we've written, and it was noted that content I had written last year about Nude Beaches in Texas was getting quite a bit of attention. Apparently, Texans want to know more about these "natural" destinations.

While we were on the subject I asked my coworkers: "Has anyone ever gone to a nudist beach?" I was stunned that half of my coworkers have visited nudist beaches; the other half were shocked that I even asked. The reason for my asking the question was curiosity. Where exactly does someone strolling a beach in the nude store their personal belongings?

I mean, just like any public place, you need to have your driver's license or state ID, car keys, money, debit cards, medications, and so on. So I did some research and here's what I discovered. First, the majority of naturalists look out for one another. Nude beaches have reputations for being extremely safe zones.

Nonetheless, here's some advice from the Naked Wanderings experts. They advise wearing a small backpack with your most essential belongings.

How to Keep Up With Your Belongings When You Have No Pockets:

  • Pack only the essentials (keys, ID, phone, debit cards, etc)
  • Wrap your cash, cards, and jewelry in an unused diaper in the backpack
  • Visit with friends and take turns watching the belongings
  • Use a small waterproof pouch to store phones and electronics
  • Some nude beaches offer paddleboard or locker rentals, rent one

Just remember to be safe, stay alert, and apply lots of sunscreen.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
