I have been having a LOT of hits, right through the year, with folks interested in ‘Cedar Waters‘. Well, I try to oblige. That is why I am here.

So, it looks like that they will be open as of July 4th. That should make a lot of people happy. I am actually surprised that they are not open sooner. But, they must know best.

As I always like to point out, remember two things.

  1. Female toplessness is not against State Law.
    ….
  2. From my long experience living waterfront in New Hampshire, all lakes in New Hampshire are no strangers to nudity after dark! SMILE.

People Googling “Nude Beaches New Hampshire” In The Depths Of Winter Just CRACKS Me Up.

11 hits on this post today, which means that quite a few folks were ‘Googling‘ (i.e., searching on) “Nude Beaches New Hampshire” (or similar) TODAY.

It is the depths of winter and the beaches are covered in snow.

Look at the stats above. This post gets hits year around — albeit with more in the Summer months (when it makes sense).

Yes, it is also related to ‘Free The Nipple‘ & ‘topless‘ in New Hampshire and some of the spikes in the stats are when there has been news re. ‘Free the Nipple’ court cases.

I am NOT complaining. It just amuses I. Maybe folks are looking ahead to the Spring.

But, you are more than welcome to look and I do have similar posts for Maine as well as Acadia. SMILE.

Enjoy.

P.S., All beaches in New Hampshire are nude after dark. SMILE. I would know.

P.P.S., There are NO female topless LAWS in New Hampshire — though Laconia tries to enforce a local ordinance.

DIRECTIONS

Pretty trivial to find once you get to Great Cranberry.

You can get to the Island by ferry both Northeast & Southwest Harbors, by private boat and if you are a better swimmer than I (and 99% folks are) by swimming across.

Take the main (only) drag out of the Town Docks … towards the famed Library.

Probably 1/4 miles up.

Right before you get to the other famed landmark … ‘Cranberry House‘ with “Hitty’s Cafe” & Museum.

You will see the signs to ‘Preble Cove Trail‘ on your right.

You can also find a cut-over to the Trail from outside the Museum. Not hard to find.

You will NOT see the ‘Topless Sign’ until you are about 100-yards from the beach.

Easy trail. Walk in the park.


OK, when we visited, last Friday, June 28, 2019, it was empty despite being the most beautiful day of that week — sunny and warm.

But, this was BEFORE July 4th and I have been told that the Islands don’t start to rock till after that.

Yes, as this blog testifies (and you really should do a search on ‘topless‘) I, given that I grew up in Europe, have no aversion to toplessness — male or female. No, I don’t need to see female breasts. SMILE. As I have said, more than once, “after you seen your first 10,000 they all look the same“. SMILE. Yes, I have been to HUGE topless beaches in Europe.

Funny thing this … my posts on nude/topless beaches in New Hampshire and Maine are year round favorites — on a daily basis. Always puzzles me when I see 30 hits for ‘Nude New Hampshire Beaches’ in mid-February when the temperature is below 0F and there is a foot of snow.

There is a ‘bed & breakfast’ in Acadia that SELLS (for a $1) my Acadia Nude Beach map (yes, the one above). I hear that it is quite a hit.

Well, I just wanted to share.

Talking of topless — I have been topless in my 1+ hour hikes the last few days. Feels so good.

This is consistent with my research.

This is not to say that you will not find any other nude beaches in New Hampshire if you look hard enough or are particularly lucky. Lots of lakes, lots of waterfront and many of the lakes have very secluded areas. And this does not even touch upon all the skinny dipping that takes place on most of the NH lakes ‘in the dark’ (and sometimes when it isn’t that dark.

Also remember that in NH, as in most States, there is a BIG difference between nude and topless — irrespective of gender. NH continues to be a TOPLESS STATE — i.e., State Law does not preclude women going topless. That is the Law. Attempts to change that in early 2016 following the misguided “Free the Nipple (New Hampshire)” protests failed. Yes, there have been arrests at the local level (in Laconia and Gilford) but the Judges, thankfully, have correctly interpreted the law — so far.


Google Map of the Nottingham “Cedar Waters” location. Rather central. Right off NH Route 125. You can’t miss it EVEN IF there is nobody standing outside. Click to ENLARGE.

When I saw the above article in the U.K. Daily Mail on Monday morning it got me thinking. Next Sunday, August 23rd, 2015, is the New Hampshire “Free the Female Nipple” movements emancipation day at Hampton Beach, N.H. As I have already told you they have received a huge amount of media coverage and that is on the ascend as Sunday looms closer.

On the Ferris Wheel at “Toys ‘R Us” Times Square.

But, the Topless Ladies in Times Square had piqued my interest for awhile — since Saturday, May 16, 2015 (i.e., 3 months ago), when ‘two’ quite literally walked into me and I nearly had a mouthful! Yes, I was in Times Square. The two kids were with me too, and I had Teischan by her hand, which might explain why there was this slight collision in the crush of Times Square — right outside of “Toys ‘R Us“. The three of us were in transit to Philadelphia, during the Amtrak crash, to pick up our Jaguar XJ8 from ‘Car Cheer‘. We had a few hours in New York before boarding the Greyhound to the ‘City of Brotherly Love’. Kids wanted to go to Times Square & “Toys ‘R Us” and I had to take Teischan to the “American Girl Doll” store. We had ‘done’ “Toys ‘R Us”, or more specifically ridden the Ferris Wheel inside, and were now trying to get to the “American Girl Doll” store which was about 10 blocks north. We come out of “Toys ‘R Us” — and then ‘SMACK‘. Wasn’t major. Just a glancing blow.

There were two of them. In body paint. I think they were supposed to be some female superheroes. Given that I used to be known as ‘eagle eyes’ I tend not to miss too much — especially topless breasts, painted blue, inches from my mouth. Took me a second to register that they were indeed topless — though I think they had painted decorations around the nipples to deemphasize their protuberance. Once the ladies left, after a giggle, I had to check with the kids that I hadn’t hallucinated. They were google eyed. They confirmed, breathlessly, that the women where nude and that I should have taken a picture to show Mom. Well I knew that taking the pictures would have involved a financial transaction and I wasn’t going to pay money, for the first time in my life, in my 60s, to be seen with a pair of uncovered breasts.

BUT ….

So it works in New York. NO LAW against topless women and women are exercising their right in Times Square.

So we do have a precedent. There is also no law against female toplessness in New Hampshire. Same as New York.

So …

Think about it. 


Nude (Nudist) Beaches In Maine — Acadia National Park (Unofficial).

Click to ENLARGE and study. Base map of “Mount Desert Island”, primary home of the Acadia National Park, is from Google Maps (– who else).


Given the current interest in ‘topless in NH‘, stoked by the ‘Free the Nipple in New Hampshire‘ movement and their planned August 23, 2015 event in Hampton Beach, it occurred to me, as these things do, that I should also check to see what the nude beach situation is in neighbouring Maine — since New Hampshire, as I pointed out, has at least one. 

I kind of had a feeling that much larger and more ‘liberal’ Maine might outdo New Hampshire in the nude beach stakes.

I was, however, NOT expecting to find that our perennial favorite, Acadia National Park, is said to have at least 3 fairly well frequented nudist beaches, most of them within Parkland. So I created this map for you. Though we have visited the Park 4 times, so far, all in warm weather, we have not seen any nudity let alone any topless females. I can’t say I will try and go looking but at least now I know which lakes are which. Hope this helps. I will do more posts of Maine in the coming days. Promise.

P.S., In case you didn’t realize and it did NOT occur to you, these are NOT sanctioned (or even approved) nudist beaches. They are definitely not commercial (i.e., for a fee) nudist beaches. These are beaches where people exercise their free will. I guess Park Rangers either turn a blind eye, suggest they ‘cut it out’ or arrest them. So be WARNED. Just because it happens should not be taken that you might not get arrested. OK? Don’t want anyone getting into trouble.
