State officials could start to cite nudists at Blacks Beach

Posted: Updated:

TORREY PINES (CBS 8) - There are questions about the legality of clothing-optional beaches in California.

A ruling last year banned nudity at San Onofre State Beach, but could this cover-up be heading to other beaches in the state?

From the 1960's nude sunbathing has attracted naturists to La Jolla's Blacks Beach. Until recently state beach and park authorities did not cite nudity on Blacks Beach or any other state beach, however 2009 court ruling could change all that.

In 2009, the courts overturned a decision on the Cahil Policy which allowed State Parks and Recreation Departments the right to designate certain areas as clothing optional and unless a private citizen makes an official complaint regarding lewd acts, beach goers are allowed to be nude in certain areas.

State park officials are already citing nude sunbathers in San Onofre's Trail 6. Some nudists feel its only a matter of time before the state starts enforcing nudity laws on Torrey Pines' Blacks Beach.
