A nude beach , sometimes called a clothing-optional or free beach , is a beach where users are at liberty to be nude. Nude beaches usually have mixed bathing. Such beaches are usually on public lands, and any member of the public is allowed to use the facilities without membership in any movement or subscription to any personal belief. The use of the beach facilities is normally anonymous. Unlike a naturist resort or facility, there is normally no membership or vetting requirement for the use of a nude beach. The use of nude beach facilities is usually casual, not requiring pre-booking. Nude beaches may be official legally sanctioned , unofficial tolerated by residents and law enforcement , or illegal. In some countries, nude beaches are relatively few and are usually at some distance from cities, and access is at times more difficult than at a regular beach and the facilities at these beaches tend to be very basic with a few notable exceptions.

Black Rock Beach is often mentioned as the only de facto nude beach on Block Island. However, If you want to go nude or topless or wear a thong or whatever, an easier beach to get to is below Mohegan Bluffs near the Southeast Lighthouse. You just have to climb down the last 30 feet or so. Walk to the right over all the rocks until you reach the first promontory and the beach becomes sandy. It's clothing-optional from that point on. Most people wear regular swimsuits, but don't let that deter you. You'll see topless and nudes mixed in.
