Nude Beaches Around the World: Do You Dare to go Bare?

Share on: Share on Google+

There’s nothing like summer beach days. People are drawn to the coast, whether it’s to play in the surf, build sand castles, take long strolls at sunset, lie out under the sun, or sip daiquiris at the beachfront bar. Some us even enjoy stripping down to our teeny-weeny bikinis or Speedos, while others dare to bare it all, and wear nothing but the metaphorical birthday suit.

Chances are, if you’ve gone to a beach on the Mediterranean, you’ve experienced a bit of nudity, at least from the waist up. And maybe you were even brave enough to join in the fun and set yourself free, so to speak. Perhaps you actually felt liberated and are daring to go completely bare this summer. Well, good news, because we have a list of nude beaches you don’t want to miss….and if you actually do want to miss them, now you know where not to go.

Haulover Park, South Beach, Miami

Florida beaches are renowned worldwide for their pristine white sands and invitingly warm waters, and Haulover Beach Park in South Beach, Miami is no exception. Located between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intercoastal Waterway, the almost half mile stretch of clothing-optional coastline attracts thousands of visitors per year. If you aren’t brave enough to strip down, there are parts of the beach where clothing is mandatory. But we recommend stepping out of your comfort zone (and out of your bathing suit) and getting involved a nude volleyball game or going skinny dipping in the salty sea.
