Well to give review of first time visit...... Wife and I were there Sunday the 8th. We were first to arrive in the lot so stayed in the vehicle to watch sunrise. Not much of one due to storm clouds, but the sounds of the surf was wonderful. We wanted a few people to arrive because we weren't sure as to where the C/O area started. Once we got down there and found our spot we were pleased with the secludedness, the wife is still a little apprehensive about nudity in public. A short time later we met a nice couple who are regulars there and were cleaning up the beach.(Rick and Sue)They had two full trash bags collected, and I thanked them for what they were doing and offered to help if they went back out. Later while strolling along the surf with the same couple we learned that we had something in common. We had both been to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba (GTMO) and did some scuba diving there. What makes this unusual is that we aren't Military Personnel and it's obviously a place you must have special permission to go to. We both commented on what a small world this is and how it was interesting that two nudists would meet on a beach and have someting like that in common. Also briefly spoke with another couple who were nice. We had visited both Playalinda and Apollo this weekend and wifey stated later that she felt more comfortable at Apollo, I had to agree. It was less crowded with friendly folks and more perfect for first timers. At high tide the beach is kinda narrow but it got wider as it went down to low tide. Apollo is a lot closer to hotels/motels and quicker to travel to as well. We asked for a late check out at hotel and were able to spend approx. 4 hours there before heading back to take shower and check out.

Hope this helps other first timers wondering about Apollo Beach.

Congrats on your trip and glad you tried both beaches. Some like Apollo and some like Playalinda but you just have to try both to find out which.

This is true Diger, for me I kinda lean towards Playalinda. Don't really know why, maybe because geographically and travel time wise it's easier to get to. I won't ever rule out Apollo or speak negative of either one. I'm EXTREMLY jealous that the area of Florida has two nice beaches that close together and the Gulfcoast area, where I live has none. I told the wife if we lived on the other coast of FL I would be on those beaches a couple times a month.

My wife and I returned to Apollo last Thursday and went every day through Sunday. We've got our routine down pat. Arrive at Apollo around 7:30 - 8:00, leave between 1 and 2:00. Stop at JB's for a burger and beer. Return to the hotel for a shower and a nap. Leave around 5:00 for cocktails either on the beach at Apollo (preferred) or a bar. Late dinner. Then the next morning, start it all over again. By the time we left Monday morning, we were totally relaxed and recharged. We decided we need to do this once a month...Great stress eleminator!

I'm with you, IMNeeked...... I wish I lived 3 hours closer because I would be there at least once a month.

Flnudist,

We have some friends that live 5 minutes from the gate at Apollo and we are there more than they are even though we live in Tennessee.

That would be nice but it is a 22 hr drive and the Aloha is reasonable but a private place would be nice.

Accommodation wise, with a drive of maybe an extra 5-7 minutes, consider renting a condo. While they pretty well insist on a week-long rental, a lot of condo owners will relax their terms and agree to a shorter stay if the unit's going to otherwise sit unoccupied. The Aloha's fine for a short notice situation, but it pales in comparision with some of the condos we've rented. Vacation Rentals by Owner has a website www.vrbo.com. Try it.

That sounds like us. We get there 8:00 ish, leave between 3:00 & 4:00, go get cleaned up, get something to eat @ JB's or somewhere else, come back and ride bikes, do a little fishing, or catch some live music on a weekend (or high school football on fall Friday nights).....and get up and do it all over again. We're coming down for a week the day after Labor Day.....and are counting down the hours.

Thanks for the link. The thing we like about the Aloha is the location for bike riding & fishing. The area is great for riding and a short ride into the park as well. There's close by fishing and manatee watching as well. Not having a pool isn't a big deal because we spend the day on the beach anyway, and it's walking distance to JB's.

Cheryl,

In November the temps may or maynot be good. You will more likely be fine but you can always have cold fronts move through. We have gone in cooler weather and used a wind break. As long as can get out of the wind you will be fine.

The only advice is go and enjoy it.

I will be in Fl,Nov 2 thru 12. Unfortunately, I'll be on the other side. I'll be at my sisters house in Bradenton.
My neice is getting married on the 5th so it'll probably be hectic until then, after that, I'm not sure what the itinerary will be.
The last time I went down, Oct '09, I did get some skinny dippin' time in, when no one was there. The pool in their back yard is very private.

That beach sounds/looks fantastic. But Diger, how the heck are you able to post photos? They make this forum so much more interesting...

You can't if you use the quick reply. You have to click on the reply to topic button, it has a lot more options, but you have to host your photos on the web at a site like Flickr before you can link them to your post.
