Cove News

Celebrating International Women's Day

We have partnered with The Naturist Action Committee to host Bodies and Souls: The Century Project photo exhibit sponsored by The Naturist Education Foundation. The exhibit showcases select photos and stories from Bodies and Souls: The Century Project by Frank Cordelle which took almost 25 years to complete. The Century Project "combines unconventionally stunning nude portraits" of women in all stages of life, "with highly personal written statements" designed to "effect change in societal attitudes towards women's bodies." This is the first time this exhibit has been seen since 2007. 

The exhibit will take place in the Clubhouse on March 6 & 7 from 10 am - 5 pm. Safety precautions are always at the top of our list. We will be requiring masks inside the clubhouse and there will be a hand sanitizing station located as you enter the exhibit. There will also be an individual sanitizing things as people move through the exhibit. The Bodies and Souls: The Century Project will be available in print for $25.

Cypress Cove First-Time Visitor & Membership Questions? Ask Tom!

Membership Q & A:

Hi Tom,
Me and my husband recently visited the Cove with some friends and fell in love with the resort. We live about an hour away and want to visit more. What type of membership should we get?
-Nekkid Newbies

Dear Nekkid,
Thanks for your note and kind words. If you plan on visiting at least 2 days per month then the full membership is perfect for you! We have a monthly payment plan that is easy to set up. Just contact me or Vickie Johnson and we will take care of you!

My wife and I are “After-5 Members.” We have some friends who have been to the Cove and want to come with us next time we visit. Can they come as guests and how much is it? Thanx!

We welcome your guests! In your case, they would pay the After 5 fee of $15.05 per person. All members of Cypress Cove may bring first-time guests to the club for one introductory visit at no charge, provided they meet the criteria for membership. All guests must be registered at the office upon arrival.

Tom is your go-to for all things membership. Reach out to him and ask your questions today. He is standing by to help you decide which membership would make sense for you and help you through your first-time experience. You can reach Tom at or stop in for a tour. 

Additional Nudist Resources & Nonprofit Groups

For the next few weeks, we will be featuring a nudist organization out there working hard to bring awareness, change laws, and educate the masses. This week we are looking at International Naturist Federation. The International Naturist Federation (INF-FNI) is an organization consisting of member federations, correspondents, and extraordinary members in over forty countries. Together with other interested parties involved in naturist activities, the INF-FNI works to enhance and improve the naturist experience and the naturist business climate by promoting the benefits of naturism to the general public. Learn more about INF by visiting here.

Finding Acceptance—and Self-Love—in a Naturist Community

Beautiful! It’s all about acceptance.

"We're both lovers of camping; time spent in nature actually helped solidify our relationship. We decided to find a place to enjoy the outdoors during the shelter-in-place orders. But most campsites were closed. And then we found a place that was unlike any other: Lupin Lodge. This is a community that welcomes newcomers with open arms. We started going in August and we've been back every weekend, just because of the love we feel. The first day we were there, people invited us to eat with them, and asked if we needed anything. They even recited poems just to help us relax in a new environment. It was amazing." Read the full story HERE.

'Gender-neutral' laws would make topless women legal

What do YOU think? Would you give up gender to gain top-freedom?

"Hayes-Santos said the topless issue is only one facet of the proposal. He said the city’s codes are full of wording that single out a particular sex, and it's time for that to change. 'There are multiple portions of the code where we are using 'his' and 'her,' or we are using or 'he' and 'him,' or 'husband' or 'wife,' and things like that,' Hayes-Santos said. 'There are multiple examples of that.'  He said his proposal would in essence take gender out of city rules. 'Any gender would be allowed to have same rights that a man has, which is currently that you don’t have to wear a shirt (in public),' Hayes-Santos said." Read the full story HERE.

Around the Cove

3-wheel bikes of all kinds have become very popular at the Cove. A great way to get some exercise and some fresh air at the same time.


What a fun way to spend an afternoon. Doing a puzzle while getting some Florida sun and chatting with people as they pass by.


Members of the Cypress Cove Radio Controlled Yacht Club getting their boats ready for the Mini Regatta on Saturday.


Heavy winds and a beautiful sunny day made the sailing fun and challenging for the RCYC members.


The sunning lawn is a great place to have some fun in the sun while being outdoors and maintaining social distancing.


Over the last few months, the washrooms/showers in the tenting area have been completely remodeled.


The shower was retiled over the weekend and it looks wonderful. Drop over and take a closer look.
