❝ Bare-footers really love it here as it is so “barefoot friendly”. The resort roads are made of packed sand so many choose no shoes. There is plenty of grassy areas and also soft pine needle coated paths to explore and experience Earthing (also known as Grounding) to Mother Earth. ❞
❝ A Bit of Heaven
A relaxing breather from the travails of the rest of the world. Sunsport is a wonderful haven where nature is respected au naturel. God created me naked---If it's good enough for Him, then its good enough for me. ❞

❝ I feel like the most blessed person in the world to have a beautiful place to live and such wonderful friends who make this life such a beautiful journey! ❤️Today I'm just floating in the pond and I'm grateful to know everything will be okay. ❤️ ❞
- Aaron Frost
❝ My friend hadn’t been to a naturist club before and asked if they were all like this! I told her no, this one seemed special...really, really naturist with all the foliage. We came back and took an outdoor shower and then tried the huge hot tub. This place wasn’t fancy, but everything it offered was just right! ❞

❝ Great Place, amazing people. ❞

❝ Sunsport is an awesome place to relax and enjoy how beautiful the human body is. I have been there 4 times and the people have been so welcoming they feel like family. ❞
- Joey Dellagatta
❝ We were chilling out, chatting, taking in the naturist vibe, having fun! A lot of people were super friendly and laid back. We laid out for a while, asked somebody about the nature trail and spent almost an hour hiking in the most amazing jungle. ❞
- Big Mamou
❝ Sunsport Gardens a Naturist's Paradise. Although it is clothing optional, certain areas, such as the pool, sauna, hot tub, volleyball courts are nude only. My wife and I are delighted to live here 6 months of the year. I normally only wear sunglasses, a hat, and a smile! Sunsport is a family camp where we have had family visit us here and we feel safe. ❞
❝ The tropical landscape is soothing, but plenty to keep you busy no matter what your interest. Activities include yoga, water aerobics, sand volleyball, petanque, tennis, pickle ball, line dancing lessons and of course relaxing by the beautiful pool and hot tub, plus much more. The onsite cafe offers fresh and tasty fare. We have booked for 8 weeks next year but shorter stays are certainly worthwhile. Truly a beautiful and natural spot in South Florida. ❞
- Tom and Karen
❝ Amazing folks and sweet souls, and yes, even Magic can still be found at Sunsport Gardens. It has survived over 50 years and hopefully it can find a way to continue to do so. ❞
❝ Very accepting environment with great activities, organic restaurant, nice walking trails, and much more. ❞
- Bill Cannon

❝ Family friendly, clean, campground type resort with pretty nature trails with native plants and flowers. Special events bring children & parents, young people, and people of all ages and occupations to educational programs and activities in a naturist/nudist setting. ❞
- David Stanley Lewis
❝ Surprisingly wonderful experience!
The hot tub is new and improved, fantastic jets, huge and hot! The pool is clean and everyone there was totally friendly. The sauna is great as well as the showers. The workers I met were helpful and friendly as well. The property is huge and there are health walks and trails if you ask/look so you can explore around. I highly recommend the once a month drum circle! ❞

The Wolf Moon
the Wolf Moon because wolves were more likely to be heard howling at this time. It was traditionally believed that wolves howled due to hunger during winter, but we know today that wolves howl for different reasons.
Another fitting name for this full Moon is the Center Moon. Used by the Assiniboine people of the Northern Great Plains, it refers to the idea that this Moon roughly marks the middle of the cold season.
Other traditional names for the January Moon emphasize the harsh coldness of the season: Cold Moon (Cree), Frost Exploding Moon (Cree), Freeze Up Moon (Algonquin), and Severe Moon(Dakota). Hard Moon (Dakota) highlights the phenomenon of the fallen snow developing a hard crust.
Canada Goose Moon (Tlingit), Great Moon (Cree), Greetings Moon (Western Abenaki), and Spirit Moon (Ojibwe) have also been recorded as Moon names for this month.

Here you can find a
Meditating Buddha, Lotus Pond,
Labyrinth, Marsh and
coming soon an exotic Bamboo Forest
Meditation Field is a magical place to heal and to grow both spiritually and physically.
A place to find your inner self and a place to connect to Nature.
Surrounded by a Rainbow Eucalyptus Grove and ornamental bamboo the Meditating Buddha welcomes visitors.
Handcrafted by artisans in Java, Indonesia of Volcanic Stone.
If you are quiet enough, you will hear the flow of the universe. You will feel its rhythm. Go with this flow. Happiness lies ahead. Meditation is key.
Lotus are dormant in the winter but come spring they will begin to emerge and flower all summer……
If you never have before, or even if you have, take time someday soon to observe a Lotus and look for its symbolic properties of purity, determination, hope, and rebirth.
The lotus is the symbol of what is divine or immortal in humanity, and also symbolizes divine perfection. The lotus is the attribute of sun and fire gods. … The lotus’s unfolding petals suggest the expansion of the soul. The growth of its pure beauty from the mud of its origin holds a benign spiritual promise.
Labyrinth walking is an ancient practice used by many different faiths for spiritual centering, contemplation, and prayer. Entering the serpentine path of a labyrinth, you walk slowly while quieting your mind and focusing on a spiritual question or prayer.
What Is a Labyrinth?
A labyrinth is not a maze. It has only one path to the center and back out, which is called unicursal (one line). It has no blind alleys or dead ends as mazes have. The path twists and turns back on itself many times before reaching the center. Once at the center, there is only one way back out.
The labyrinth symbolizes a journey to a predetermined destination (such as a pilgrimage to a holy site), or the journey through life from birth to spiritual awakening to death.
In the not too distant past, wetlands were regarded as wastelands. Most people felt that they were places to be avoided, and it was common practice to drain them, fill them or treat them as dumping grounds. A study published by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in 1990 revealed a startling fact: more than half of the 221 million acres of wetlands that existed in the lower 48 states in the late 1700s have been destroyed.
Today, we know that wetlands provide many important services to the environment. They offer critical habitat for fish, waterfowl and other wildlife, they purify polluted waters, and they help check the destructive power of floods and storms.
The Marsh at Sunsport symbolizes primal Nature….the home and birthplace of all life.
Meditation Field is located in the back north area of Sunsport.

Drums @ Sunsport Gardens
Sunsport has a vibrant drum community ranging from meditative shamanic drumming to upbeat African drumming.
Come join us for drum circles and classes.
Drumming is a great workout for your brain and actually can make you smarter because when you drum you access your entire brain. … Drumming also appears to synchronize the lower areas of the brain (non-verbal) with the frontal cortex (language and reasoning).
