Happy National Nude Day! Before you throw caution to the wind and decide to spend this day doing whatever it is that you do in your birthday suit – remember that it may not be an approved “dress code.”
Not to fret, if you want to find an acceptable place to get naked today (or any day for that matter), there is an entire association you can join and there are plenty of socially acceptable nudist locations all over the world.
In honor of being naked, we are going to highlight a couple of fun facts, and the top 4 nudist locations all over the world.
Practicing Nudists often refer to their practice as either naturism, or nudism. Those who do actively practice view this as a cultural and political movement where personal and social nudity is advocated for.
In the last decade – nudist recreation and travel has become a multi-million dollar industry.
Speaking of nude beaches and resorts – here are a few of our favorite locations.
The Village Naturiste at Cap d’Agde isn’t just a nude beach. It is a self-contained nude village, where its residents are actively practicing naturism. Not only is it a beautiful location, but it is rich in nudist history (it has been a thing since the 1950’s but was made an official ‘nude’ designation in the 1960’s). Unlike most locations, being naked is actually mandatory, rather than most locations where clothing is optional.
Black’s Beach – San Diego, CA – even though nude sunbathing is illegal, it is allowed here due to the secluded location at the beach, and beach goers should expect a hike to get there.
Cruisebare – a nude cruise experience. In 1991, Cruisebare set sail with just under 40 passengers. Today more than 3,000 passengers set sail several times a year, and have packages for the newdists (those new to nudism) and experienced nudists.
Hidden Beach Resort – Riviera Maya, Mexico – All inclusive, except for clothing! You seriously don’t even need to pack more than your travel to and travel from clothing (unless you take that nudist flight in, right?!) This resort is mostly intended for couples, but many singles enjoy a clothing free time here as well, with strict rules surrounding everyone’s stay.
Even if you are celebrating the freedom of nudity at home, there is a lot to be said about the ability to roam freely sans clothes. If it makes you happy, it makes us happy … plus I think most of us here on the team are not opposed to some nudity … amIrite?!
Have you ever been to a nude or clothing optional beach? What was your experience like?
