Lupin Nurtures the Mind, Body & Spirit

If you have only a few hours to spare, a visit to Lupin will make any challenging day better. You’ll experience a slower tempo, breath-taking vistas, exquisite cuisine, a touch of nature, elevated senses, the feeling of freedom and a larger perspective. Being comfortably nude is a natural tranquilizer.

There is no better or safer place for your introduction to a unique personal freedom.

Bay Area Nudist Resort

Lupin’s clothes-free tradition (since 1936) embodies the principles of body acceptance and mutual respect, and its management strives to maintain a comfortable, family-friendly ambience at all times. Staff personnel are especially sensitive and responsive to first-timer concerns.

“Women seeking a sane alternative to popular culture’s distorted ‘beauty myths’ are particularly invited to a transforming experience of nude self-acceptance in harassment-free surroundings.”

Common male fears of erotic embarrassment are very rarely realized in Lupin’s depressurized social environment. (The omnipotent mind controls inappropriate timing.)

Bay Area newcomers often find Lupin with its broad spectrum of individuals and families to be a valuable source of new friendships, often bridging differences of gender, generation, wealth and culture.

Though nudity is generally encouraged everywhere on the grounds, wearing clothing is always optional except in the nude-only pool area, hot tub, and sauna.
