Getting to Apollo Beach - the Naturist Apollo Beach is on the North part of Canaveral National Seashore (CNS). View driving map from I-95 here.
Take I95 exit 249 (SR44) East into New Smyrna Beach. Follow it South when it becomes A1A. Follow A1A through the CNS ranger station (well, of course, pay the entrance fee first). Keep driving South until you run out of road.
When you are at the end of A1A, the parking lot on the left is Parking Area #5 of Apollo Beach. Park in the designated parking areas only.

The Clothing Optional area historically started South of the dune crossover. It is almost guaranteed that you will see a steady stream of curious visitors straining their eyes southward and nerviously giggling in either anxious expectation or surprise. Chances are that at least one of these "surprised" internet-savvy family members may not be truly as surprised as they pretend...
The official position of the Park Rangers who routinely patrol these clothing optional beaches is that the Park Service cannot officially "designate" any area for nude sun bathing or otherwise. Technically that means that one can sunbathe sans swim suit anywhere on any of the beaches, but both textile and Naturist sunbathers will be more comfortable not mixing the two sets of preferences.
When Parking Lot 5 gets full the regulars know that Parking Lot 4 becomes the overflow for Naturist sun seekers. Most weekends will see the ratio of nude to textile bathers increase there too.
The Apollo Beach Clothing Optional area continues South for well over 10 miles. If you ever venture that far you would eventually come upon naked people on the North end of the Playalinda Clothing Optional Beach Area. Apollo and Playalinda beach are really just one long Clothing Optional beach, with Apollo on the North and Playalinda on the South.
