Nude Etiquette 101

Being in a clothes-free environment has absolutely nothing to do with sex. We are not a dating service. Everyone is here to relax and enjoy the peace and nature that Full Tan has to offer.

1. Where do I undress?

Here at Full Tan the parking lot is out of public view and many people undress there. You are also welcome to use our restrooms and shower area. It’s wise to bring along a large beach bag to store your clothes or you can leave them in your vehicle.

2. How do I safeguard my valuables?

We usually never have problems with personal belongings showing up missing but you should still take care. It’s a good idea to store your valuables in your locked vehicle.

3. Is nudity mandatory?

Here at Full Tan, we want you to feel comfortable for your first visit, but we want others to feel comfortable as well. Nudity is required in the pool, the surrounding common areas and at the club house. If you're not comfortable just yet, we do offer tent and electric sites. If you rent your own site, that is considered a clothing-optional area until you're ready to join the crowd.

We are Nudists! Not Ridiculous! If it's cold out, put some clothes on!

Whether you are dressed or undressed, maintaining eye contact is always a respectful way to communicate.

4. Do I have to dress for dinner or dances?

It is your choice, depending on the weather and other factors. Some of our dances have a theme that require a minimal amount of clothing or costume to express that theme.

5. Always shower with soap before entering the pool. This helps us to keep our facilities clean.

6. Always sit on a towel or wear bottoms, never on your bare bottom. Again, this is to help us keep our facilities clean and in consideration for others.

7. You sell food and drinks there. How do I carry around money with me?

Full Tan will take an imprint of a credit card or a down payment and we'll be glad to run a tab for you for your entire stay. Whether you're here for a couple of hours or a week, you won't have to worry every time you want a bottle of water or a sandwich from our Cafe.

A Special Word for those of you who may feel uncomfortable about your nude body in front of others...

Full Tan Sun Club is very much about self-acceptance and total relaxation in a stress-free environment. If you feel self-conscious about your body, chances are your concerns will fade away in no time and you are not alone!

Nudists come in all shapes and sizes and we accept each other based on our personality, rather than what style we wear.

You will be accepted as well. The relaxation you will feel will result in one of the healthiest physical and mental lifestyle changes possible – total acceptance of who you are on the inside. You will be free of the desire to judge yourself and others on the basis of physical appearance.

As nude recreation becomes more accepted in our society, people are discovering its healthful and empowering benefits.

People who come to Full Tan, come from all walks of life and span all age groups, races and religions, professions and physical conditions.

Full Tan provides a supportive environment for everyone... There are no pressures, and there is a feeling of community and mutual respect.

You’ll feel at home immediately. You’ll also find yourself relating to others on the basis of who you really are, rather than who your clothes say you are. Consider an investment in yourself by taking a natural, stress-free break from your busy life for an afternoon, a weekend, or an extended vacation. Leave the excess baggage at home.

Come to Full Tan where there are no strangers, just friends you haven't met yet!
