Where is AANR-Florida?

This month, AANR Florida visited Suwannee Valley Resort over the Fourth of July to celebrate our Freedom and the Nation’s Birthday in style.   We also had the honor of presenting AANR-Florida Man and Woman of the year in front of a huge crowd.   The weekend efforts were geared to supporting the resort’s efforts to raise money for the Veteran’s Dental Program in Lake City. 

We spent a great weekend supporting Nude Recreation Week at Haulover Beach celebrating with nudists from all over the state, county and world.   There is nothing like being naked in the ocean in the warmth of July, thank you to SFFB for their hospitality. 

AANR hosted a booth at Cypress Cove for Nude Recreation and Body Painting Competition.  Artists from all over came in to celebrate Nude Recreation Week by exhibiting and competing in the art of body painting. 



Upcoming Events:

AANR Convention – Sunny Rest – August 12 - 18

Nuda-a-Palooza – Cypress Cove Resort - October 25

Veteran’s Day Naked Golf Classic – Sunny Sands Resort – November 11


Petition to Make Caspersen Beach Clothing Optional Started


The well-known Suncoast Naturists, a non-landed club of nudists and naturists with members throughout Sarasota County and beyond, has kicked-off a petition drive targeted at Sarasota County Commissioner, Charles D. Hines.

The objective is to get a ¼ mile stretch of the under-utilized Caspersen Beach Park designated as clothing-optional. 

“The popularity of clothing-optional beaches in Florida and around the world is growing at a dramatic rate, and there is nowhere near enough supply to satisfy the demand,” says John Schlinz, the petition’s creator.

“As Pasco County has shown, clothing-optional businesses are an important part of their tourist economy.  And in Sunny Isles Beach – just north of Miami and home of the world famous Haulover Beach Park – the nudist / naturist visitors to the clothing-optional portion alone contribute millions of dollars, annually, to the local economy.”

AANR-Florida has pledged its assistance and resources toward seeing this initiative succeed.  Says Jonathan Duffield, Co-Chair of the Government Affairs Committee,
“We will do whatever it takes.”

But we can’t do it without you.  Please visit…

…and sign the petition.  With enough support, we can make this happen.

The Suncoast Naturists organization was founded in 2000 to serve the recreational interests of nudists and naturists from Sarasota to Venice and throughout the area.  John Schlinz is a committed activist and, among other capacities, serves as SCN’s newsletter editor.
