The freedom, the relaxation, the all over tan and joining other open minded people are just a few of the reasons. It might feel a little taboo the first few times you go to a nude beach but it shouldn't - it's totally normal and we were born this way!
Nude beaches are judgement free and it is a liberating experience to go skinny dipping. And honestly, no one cares what you look like at all.
Yes! Possibly, maybe... it's tricky.
It all depends on where you are in the world and technically it might be illegal but also widely accepted (as is the case in some parts of the US and Australia).
Our reviews are of well known and established nude places where you're very unlikely to encounter any issues. Obviously we can't include every location but we're trying! Check out the guide below to see the laws in areas all over the world. It also depends on the situation. A remote and private island in the middle of the ocean with no one around obviously isn't comparable to a busier beach in Bali or Fiji where nudity is frowned upon.
Obviously it also depends on what environment you'd prefer to be in for your first experience. Do you want to be at a busy beach surrounded by everyone else in their birthday suits or would you prefer a quiet beach? Maybe you want to have a drink beforehand or go to a beach where nudity is mandatory?
Honestly, any beach is the place to try it out and after your first time it won't seem like a big deal. Even though it will feel like everyone is watching you or you might think you look like a first timer - no one cares or knows. Most regulars at nude beaches will make you feel welcome and as comfortable as possible if they know it is your first time.
Have a browse and find your nude place!
Not normally. Most beaches are clothing optional - which means exactly that. You can be topless, nude or a textile (a popular word with nudists referring to someone who wears clothes). Undress to your comfort level and you'll be fine.
Some beaches or resorts will require you to fully nude. Most of the beaches are located in Europe where there can be well defined 'nude' and 'clothed' sections. This is popular in countries like Greece, Spain and Bulgaria. Every beach is a topless beach is some parts of Europe, however it might be more common in certain regions. The majority of nude resorts will require you to be naked, because otherwise what's the point?!
We find it much weirder when people are fully clothed at a nude beach surrounded by naked people!
There is absolutely nothing sexual about going to a nude beach. Zero.
Authentic nude beaches are all about swimming and tanning au natural. It really is that simple. There is no club you need to join or creeps you need to put up with. Swinging resorts and beaches are very different to a nude beach. If you're into that - cool. You will not find those listings here because we're all about the best authentic nude places around the world.
The vibe can be very different at every nude place and it change over time. Please contact us if you encounter a location that doesn't live up to the review.
Nude beaches are filled with all kinds of bodies and ages - you will be just fine!
The majority of nude beaches are filled with accepting and non-judgmental people. After all, if everyone is in the same state of undress there isn't much left to judge.
If anyone makes a comment, obviously that is highly inappropriate. But as a young couple we've travelled all over the globe to nude beaches and haven't experienced that anywhere. Nude beaches are mostly laid back and very accepting.
Yes and we're looking for quality reviewers who can provide a detailed guide along with photos of the beach.
