The only arrests I've ever seen at this beach have involved public sexual activity. This is one item is enforced very quickly by both rangers and the county police.
Most recently, three men were arrested and it's my understanding that there's a $500 fine for each person involved. In recent months, an elderly couple was arrested for engaging in sexual activity on their long term wedding anniversary but I don't know if the judge gave any consideration to the age of the couple or the fact that sexual activity for senior citizens is almost extinct and should be celebrated not fined.
Families do attend this area of the beach with children from the very young all the way through the teen years and beyond. It isn't uncommon to see groups of college age people enjoying the relaxed atmosphere of "skinny dipping" that was very common across the country in days gone by.
It is also common to see many people walking along the beach who came to see the "nudists" doing their thing. Many of these "lookers" are senior citizens who want to satisfy their curiosity. You don't have to be nude to be there, just be nice and try not to stare for too long.
You'll also find every body shape you can imagine and nobody seems to care what anyone else looks like as once you get past the initial shock of total nudity the whole thing just becomes another day at the beach sans clothing.
Not that it's all that important but the fishing is the best in this same area - at least I've convinced my wife that's the case!
