Blind Creek Beach is one of the most scenic Florida beaches, and it's the only clothing-optional one in St. Lucie County. This pristine, expansive shoreline with rolling dunes is located off the coast of Hutchinson Island, where you can find picturesque shorelines, nearby attractions, and coast naturists.

For many years, nude sunbathers have visited Blind Creek Beach to enjoy sunbathing, seacombing, fishing, and watching wildlife. In 2016, nudists were officially permitted to hang out on this stretch of beach.

The waters are clear, and the sun is almost always shining. Families, couples, and solo beachgoers all enjoy hanging out here! Although it can get crowded, especially during summer and on weekends, the beach has a peaceful vibe. It's the ideal destination for those who appreciate a natural, no judgment, laid-back beach experience.

In this guide, we'll tell you all about this fan-favorite beach and how you can enjoy a vacation in Fort Pierce, FL and at Blind Creek.

About Blind Creek Beach

Blind Creek Beach is an 8-mile stretch of beach with 36 acres of clothing-optional space. The beach offers a comfortable environment along the Florida coastline in the town of Fort Pierce. It welcomes all kinds of beach lovers, including families.

Blind Creek Beach has been a local naturist's favorite nude beach for decades. However, thanks to the local community's labor of love, the city made it an official nude beach in 2016. Some spaces don't legally permit nudity, but everyone doesn't follow this guideline.

For years, nudists from St. Lucie County have worked together to keep the beach a place for naturists before it was official. Today, the regular beach goers keep it a welcoming and clean beach for all visitors.

You can find free parking for Blind Creek on both sides of the highway between Frederick Douglass Beach Park and the St. Lucie Nuclear Power Plant.

Several beach access points make it convenient, and you'll see signs for the clothing-optional section. There are only a couple of areas where clothing is optional, but there's plenty of space for visitors to spread out and spend a few relaxing hours.

While you won't find many amenities at this natural beach, it's easy to spend time sunbathing, enjoying the views, and swimming in the warm waters. There's also a boat ramp for the Indian River Lagoon.

When you arrive, you'll find lots of parking in a paved or grassy parking area. There's also street parking along South Ocean Dr. When you park, you'll see signs for the clothing-optional beach entrance sections.

Blind Creek Beach Reviews

"Beautiful clothing optional beach. Awesome people, respectful, friendly, no judgements zone."

"This place is so quiet and beautiful. Great place to sit back and relax."

"This is a very nice beach. I loved that it was a family friendly clothing optional beach too. Took my family, and all my kids had a blast playing in the giant waves without having to wear their bathing suit."

"This beach is amazing and it’s a freeing experience. The signs make it clear where clothing is optional and everyone acts likes it is a normal beach."

"This beach is one of the most serene beaches I have been to. Very clean and not much seaweed like other south Florida beaches. The volume of people has always been low when I go."
