PLAYALINDA BEACH, Fla. (AP) _ Nudists are risking more than a
sunburn on a popular stretch of Playalinda Beach.
The Brevard County Sheriff's Office is warning beachgoers to
keep their swim trunks on, or face possible fines or even arrests
for breaking a city ordinance on public nudity.
A popular stretch of the federal beach has earned a reputation
for being clothing optional. But officials say nude sunbathers are
violating a city ordinance passed in 1995.
The sheriff's office says complaints about nudity at a remote
beach access point have picked up since August, indicating that
more sunbathers are baring it all closer to other beachgoers
wearing more than just sunblock.
