Clothing Optional (aka Nude or Naturist) Beaches
Lots of places offer you lists of nude beaches. Some even provide directions.
Here you will see where the beaches are on a map.
There are several criteria that must be met for a beach to be included here.
It must be publicly accessible, as in not part of a private club.
It must be legal, not someplace that says "cover if you see anyone to avoid a ticket".
And finally, it must be someplace I can find, so no "ask someone who knows" answers will be given on where a beach is located.
World Beach List is currently up to 250 clothing optional beaches.
If you know of more beaches which meet the above criteria, please create yourself an account, add them to the
(preferably with a review), and post a note in the nude beach discussion area to let me know about it.
Also, please post a message regarding any corrections to the existing list.
