Read on for our complete guide to the beach. Expect to find both clothed and naked people at Pirate's Cove. The clothing optional part of the beach is at the far end from where the trail reaches the sand.

A beautiful secluded beach that we had no idea was a clothing optional beach! Glass like crystal This coastline hike along the Bluffs and down to the beach is a lot of fun. Views are amazing This is a very funky hard to get too steep drop rutted dirt path. The reward is crazy naked old people that like to walk up to you while you are sitting on your towel and show you what the have to offer for viewing
San Luis Obispo County doesn't have a lot of places for beach recreation of any kind, whether you want to do it with your clothing on or off. The county includes the south end of Big Sur , but in that area, the cliffs there are too high and steep to allow beach access. South of Big Sur, you'll find a lovely, quiet clothing optional beach among majestic sand dunes—and one of the state's best-rated nude beaches.
This south-facing cove is somewhat protected from the weather and attracts many locals looking for a comfortable clothingless beach atmosphere. One such trail called the Shell Beach Bluff Trail begins at the north end of Indio Drive in Shell Beach where a small public parking area can be found. This is a section of the state-long California Coastal Trail. From this lot walk east on a path and a sign will point you to either the beach or the main cave. The cave is actually a tunnel through the rock which leads to a stunning viewpoint of the ocean and San Luis Bay.
