SUN members hold themselves
and others to a high standard of moral behaviour when engaging in nude recreation.
Please show your respect while visiting Crescent Rock Beach by observing the
following code of conduct.
Etiquette for Everyone
1. Respect the Beach
- protect wildlife and the environment.
- no pets, campfires, or glass containers.
- keep the beach clean & pick up all litter.
2. Respect the Limits
- clothes-free on secluded bluff beaches.
- confine naturist usage to shoreline area.
- be discrete with passing trains and hikers.
- do not trespass on the BNSF train tracks.
3. Respect the People
- show consideration for other's privacy.
- voyeurs & exhibitionists are not welcome.
- speak up against ignorant or unruly conduct.
As Crescent Rock Beach is not yet officially recognized or properly signed, SUN advises using discretion with passing hikers and trains.
While Crescent Rock Beach is not yet officially recognized as clothing-optional or properly posted as such by the B.C. government who have jurisdiction over this waterfront, the local RCMP have informed SUN that they will not respond to simple complaints of public nudity there and won't ask naturists to get dressed.
It is important to know that a woman's right to be topless in public anywhere in Canada is protected by the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and that nude sun tanning or skinny-dipping on a secluded shore such as Crescent Rock Beach are permitted under sections 173 & 174 of Canadian law allowing public nudity to legally take place.
In keeping to those stretches of coast sheltered from the railway above,
naturists and others can share the beach in peace and harmony.
