Mayor says nudists can bare all at public beach

This stretch of land at Three Mile Beach in Naramata has been known as a clothes optional area for decades.

PENTICTON - Despite ongoing disputes over land use at Three Mile Beach, Mayor Garry Litke says he has no issue with nudists using public property.

“Things can carry on the way they always have,” he says.

When the private property owner raised concerns about the public disrespecting his land, the city worked with the provincial government to instill property designations on the beach.

Now, Litke says, there is no other resolution necessary. 

“(The nudists) haven’t been hurting anyone,” Litke says.

The lakeshore is public, he says, so as long as they aren’t getting into trouble, people can continue to use the beach as a clothing optional area, like they always have.
