If you are traveling with young children, there is one very important fact that you may want to consider before traveling to just any one of these beaches. Many of these beaches are a clothing optional beach! In fact, I think all of the beaches have the option. Although some may be more freely open to being nudist than others. I am sure some areas are kept more children friendly out of respect for the small traveling visitors.
