Naturist Beach Etiquette for Blind Creek Beach
• Gawking is rude, just as in clothed society. Refrain from this uncivil behavior.
• Dress before leaving naturist beach areas. The parking lot and trail are for the dressed.
• You are encouraged to walk along the shoreline, where the sand is firm. Not only is it more refreshing, you'll avoid kicking sand up as you pass others.
• Observe all local beach rules, safety regulations, county ordinances, and state laws. Review posted signs with beach rules and regulations, including park closing hours.
• When the situation fits, consider carrying a towel when you leave your beach spot. Avoid surprising "textiles". Use your towel as a hygienic place to sit when visiting with others.
A Wish List of Advisory Signs for Blind Creek Beach
Signage can assist in avoiding potential problems. By educating people about reasonable limits, we set the foundations for a stable naturist beach.
• No glass containers on the beach. Bring non-breakable eat-ware. Practice safety.
• Pets are not permitted on the beach. Nearby Walton Rocks Beach (two miles south) is the only designated "dog beach" in St. Lucie County.
• Refrain from generating noise pollution. Use earphones or keep radio volume low. At the beach you are invited to experience nature's sounds. Listen to her.
• Please exercise common courtesy with cameras. Do not photograph people without their permission. Practice politeness by asking first. Never photograph any children but your own.
• Apply the golden rule. Your nude beach conduct should be the same as your textile world conduct. Practice politeness and consideration.
• Respect the privacy of others. If there is a lot of room, then give people a respectable distance. Recognize when you are unwelcome.
• Never walk on the dunes. Respect wildlife and environmentally fragile areas. Some places were never meant for humans to tread.
• Avoid endangering the natural habitat with fire, pollution, or even potentially dangerous foodstuffs.
• Public sexual activity is inappropriate and illegal. Your beach neighbors may call the sheriff when inconsiderate individuals violate lewdness prohibitions.
• Please help keep the beach clean and remove your trash. The beach is not an ashtray. Carry out cigarette butts. Pack it in, pack it out, and leave only footprints.
