Clothing optional/Nude status of the NPS beaches, OBX - Outer Banks Forum
I need to know the rules and regs. Wife and I find it to be no big deal but it tends to be frowned on in some areas. I don;t think you'll find that welcome on NC or SC beaches - they are family places.
Have a good day. I don't know of any NC beach that allows that. You have to follow the same laws on the beach as if you were on a public street in NC.
I guess if you were up around Carova or an isolated beach banks houses around you could go topless It is not supposed to be allowed at sexy tennis players nude northern beaches, though I have nude it. Usually people tuck themselves away from the shoreline.
Public nudity is not allowed anywhere on the Outer Banks They outer fine you heavily, However it is done and there is beaches society that has a web page supporting it.
