I have just learned that Sun Island Resort, formerly known as Swallows Sun Island Club, near San Diego, California, is closed. Here is the announcement from their web site:

May 23, 2008

"We are saddened to inform you that Sun Island Resort is closed effective this date. After over fifty years of being a nudist resort formally known as Swallows Sun Island Club it has become necessary to take this drastic step as a result of recent events beyond our control.

For those of you reading this message that are still active members we will be prorating your membership fees and refunding the remaining fees to you. This should occur sometime in the month of June 2008.

The management of Jim and Ruth Shafer wish to thank all of you have been so faithful to Sue Latimer, the former owner and matriarch of Swallows, the Swallows Club and to us during our fourteen plus years as owners."


Although I have no idea why Swallows is closing, I will be attending the AANR West Summer Festival at Glen Eden in another week and will be asking some of those "in the know" for, as Paul Harvey would say, "The rest of the story".

Bob, They are retiring. The fires that have plagued the park were the impetus, IMHO.

Cheri- Yes, I know that Jim and Ruth are retiring, and I met the new owner two years ago, which was after the fire. I am wondering what is going to happem to the permanent residents who bought new Park models after the fire. Yes, the fire may have had something to do with it. It's probably next to impossible to buy fire insurance in that canyon now.

After speaking with several people at the AANR West Summer Festival last weekend, I learned that the problem was that the person that the Shaffers originally sold the club to was unable to keep up the payments and they got the property back. They were unsuccessful in finding another buyer who wanted to keep it nudist, so they sold it to a non-nudist. It is now a traditional mobile home park. Many of the nudists who are living there are looking at moving to other clubs such as De Anza Springs. Le Club, a non-landed volleyball club which was based at Swallows, is going to make Glen Eden their home base.
