If sunshine on your shoulders -- and the rest of your body as well -- is what makes you happy, you'll find only a few beaches in Texas where you can let it all hang out. There is only one completely legal place to skinny-dip in the state, but, historically, nudist beaches tend to turn a blind eye as long as there is no lewd behavior involved. Hippie Hollow is Texas' only official all-adult clothing-optional park. Situated on the eastern end of Lake Travis, the beach area has large slabs of rock where you can soak up the sun's rays. Mature trees offer shade, and step-like layers of rock make it easy to get down to the water and cool off. The park has a day-use fee and provides restrooms, garbage disposal and drinking water next to the lake.
