Default Topless or clothing optional??

Are there any beaches that are clothing optional or places to check out if this stuff was of interest to me? I heard there was a bar called the Garden of Eden or something like that, but I was mainly interested in beaches. Thank you.

To the best of my knowledge there are no clothing optional beaches in Key West. The closest I know of is The Atlantic Shores, a resort/motel on the Atlantic end of Duval which has a clothing optional pool area. It is popular with locals and guests and would be my suggestion. Last time I checked they charge 3 bucks for a chair and I would suggest a tip to the pool boy. They do request "bottoms up" when you leave your chair and go to the bar or grill.

There is a bar on Duval that advertises clothing optional.

Garden of Eden atop the Bull & Whistle Bar on Duval Street is clothing optional, day and night. There are even lounge chairs to soak up the sun.

Naked Lunch is the clothing optional restaurant just off Duval. Can't say I've been.

kal....great webshots! Are you the photographer? If so, what type of camera were you using? Love the bicycles in a row.

Nope not a professional photographer, but have been taking pictures for MANY years. I just look for ideas that capture the moment and speak "a thousand words". Those images were taken with a small Canon digital (S400). IMHO, Canon has the best imaging processing technology of any digital camera.

If you're interested, go HERE for a few more images.

Thumbs up

Great pics. My husband & I both do photography....he more than I. He is a die hard Canon fan while I still stick by my Nikon. I have to admit, his Canon digital does shoot a better pic than my Nikon did (before I lost it! ). We will have to post some pics when we get back. Looks like you had perfect weather for those pics, hope we have the same.
