Haulover Beach Park

Park in North Beach

Where are all those tanned men in gold chains and Speedos going? That would be the clothing-optional beach in this 40-acre park hidden from condos, highways and prying eyes by vegetation. There’s more to do here than get in the buff, though; most of the beach is ‘normal’ (there’s even a dog park) and is one of the nicer spots for sand in the area. The park is on Collins Ave about 4.5 miles north of 71st St.
