Nude beach? Resident wants Blind Creek Beach in St. Lucie County to officially be clothing-optional

ST. LUCIE COUNTY, Fla. - When you head to the beach, you expect to see people in minimal clothing.

But, in St. Lucie County, some people want to be able to sun bathe completely in the buff.

Blind Creek Beach in St. Lucie County is unofficially considered a nude beach.

But, a naturist community wants it to receive an official county designation.

They've taken to social media, forming the page "Friends of Blind Creek Beach.

More than 700 people have joined the page in support of making Blind Creek Beach the county's official nude beach.

Supporters say doing so could boost tourism in the area and attract people who are looking for a nude beach.

They would also like the county to put up signs warning beach goers that there are naked sun-bathers.

Additionally, they think the designation could help encourage the county to build restrooms and showers.

Charles Levy is in favor of the official designation. "I feel that it's more comfortable. It feels very natural. As long as I don't feel like I'm infringing on other's right, I think it's our right to do," Levy said.

The St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office says it is legal for people to lay naked on the beach, so long as there is no lewd or lascivious activity.

A county spokesperson says the county will have to work with Florida Power and Light to consider the designation.

FPL owns the beach, according to the county, while the county manages the beach access and parking lot.
