YNA Summer Meetup at Gunnison Beach
July 23 @ 10:30 am - 5:00 pm
YNA Meetup at Gunnison Beach, NJ
We had a great beach day on June 4, and now we’re set to do another Gunnison meetup on Saturday, July 23rd!
Gunnison Nude Beach is a clothing optional beach located on the federally controlled Sandy Hook off of Route 36 in New Jersey. It’s a great place to meet thousands of fellow naturists and nudists of all ages. Play some volleyball, engage in body painting and other games or just lay out and catch some rays. We will set up our own YNA “camp” where people can come and hang out with the group.
When: Saturday, July 23rd, 10:30am – 5pm. (Rain date: Sunday, July 24)
Gunnison Nude Beach Cost:
This event is free, apart from the $15-per-vehicle parking fee. But if you want to support these events and our work at YNA, then please become a member for $22 / year!
How to Find Us On The Beach:
Once you get down to the beach area, look for the black-and-white YNA flag (pictured below) and we will be there.
What to Bring: Bring a towel, sunblock, lunch and water or something to keep you hydrated. An umbrella or sun shelter is also recommended for shade.
There are no vendors on The Gunnison Beach itself.
Occasionally there is a vendor selling fast food by the entrance (which is a far walk from the actual beach area). Food and drink, including alcohol, are allowed on the beach (No trash cans, so you take out what you bring in). We will have some snacks to share, and if people want to bring something to share with the group, that’s great too.
Please be advised that glass is strictly prohibited! Four-sided tents are also strictly prohibited this year.
Also note that it’s a bit of a walk – about 350 yards – on mostly loose sand from the entrance to the shoreline, so plan accordingly. If you’re bringing a lot of stuff you might want to get a beach cart with wide wheels.
Beach Rentals – for the past few weeks there has been a vendor table for umbrella and chair rentals at the Gunnison beach entrance! This is new for the 2016 season. We don’t know if they’ll be there every weekend or on select weekends, but we will post more information if we find out.
Getting To Gunnison Nude Beach:
Gunnison Nude Beach is approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes from New York City. If you need a ride or can offer a ride, send us an email so we can coordinate carpooling: ynaevents [at[ gmail .com.
Address for your GPS: There is no street address for Gunnison, but we do have an address that will get you to Sandy Hook: 1 Hartshome Drive, Highlands, New Jersey 07732. Once you reach Sandy Hook, you’ll be looking for parking lot “G.” You can also try using this intersection for your GPS: Atlantic Drive and Ford Road, Highlands, NJ.
For public transportation: The Seastreak Ferry will take you from NYC to Sandy Hook. A round-trip ferry ticket is $45, and at the 1st ferry of the day you can get a discounted price of $30. From there, a complimentary shuttle can take you from the ferry landing to Gunnison Beach. You will need to check the times to see when the shuttles stop running from the beach back to the ferry. Taxis are also available to take you to the beach.
Parking at Gunnison Nude Beach: Parking is $15 for the day (or $75 for the season). Parking for the beach is at Lot G. Although the lot is quite large, it fills up fast, and it is difficult to find a spot after 11am on a nice weekend. (There are other parking areas, but you will have to walk somewhat to get from there to the beach). There is no separate fee to get on the beach, and carpooling is a good idea (for many reasons).
Accessibility: Sandy Hook / Gunnison has beach wheelchairs with wide wheels that can be borrowed for the day. It’s helpful to reserve it in advance. Call the Sandy Hook Visitors Center for more information: (732) 872-5970. Otherwise all the entrance facilities are wheelchair-accessible.
