This is a good beach and has a nudist section. Though the nudist section is quite small... It can get fairly busy over the weekends or holidays. parking facility is ample and you have to pay for it using parking meters. Since it is a public beach some of the bathroom could use some upgrades... Especially more showers... 😀
Some drug addicts can also be seen around bathrooms... So need to be careful and not to leave stuff..

I only utilize the clothing optional section of beach. Parking for that section is the North Beach Parking Lot. There's ample parking unless you go in the afternoon on a weekend. It's best to download the pay by phone parking app as the lines at the parking machine can get pretty long. There's a tunnel that goes under Collins Avenue that leads to the beach so no need to take your life into your own hands dodging traffic. The beach is awesome, nice and clean...trash cans everywhere, lifeguards are on duty to watch the activity in the water but will call the police when on the rare occasion that some unscrupulous individual violates the etiquette put in place for that section of the beach. I've been going there for 20 years and have only observed that twice. Regulars pretty much police the area themselves and the issues are minimal. Bring lots of sunscreen and enjoy the naturist freedom.

Great place to go. We came by boat so didn't access the land areas of the park. Plenty of places to anchor and shelter. The sandbar is a popular place particularly on weekends when there are hundreds of boats and even takeaway food services on the water. Many party goers can be found here. Plenty of places to go via boat if you want to get away from people too but not so much on weekends. Several islands allow boats to tie up and visit. The water is very clear and we visit regularly even though its a 2 hour sail one way just to get there.
