Are you body confident? Do you like to let it ALL hang out? Well… Why not head to a nudist beach?
There’s several good reasons to head to one of these fun and wild nudist beaches.
Reason 1: You’ll meet hot girls who are already naked.
Reason 2: The party gets messy – like, real messy.
Reason 3: You only live once and this might be as close to ancient Rome as you get.
The image of naturists as mostly middle aged and older might hold some truth but isn’t completely inaccurate. But, all the resorts below generally appeal to a broad age range. You will find nudists in their 20’s and 30’s, especially in places like Cap d’Agde, Vera Playa and Hedonism.
Turning up with a partner is usually a better idea than turning up solo. The reason is that swingers in partnerships are usually welcomed with open arms and single guys may find it harder (excuse the pun) to get into a group.
Basically, even if you’re a single guy, try to turn up with an open minded female friend to improve your chances of really having fun. Nudist doesn’t necessarily mean swinger, but this list of beaches is very much focused on the sex and swinger element.

A note on nudist beach etiquette
When you go to a nudist beach of naturist resort, one of the best things about them is that they are totally inclusive. What this means is you’ll see people of all shapes and sizes and sexual orientations.
As a visitor to a nudist beach you’ll need to keep an open mind and do not be judgmental. Being insulting or mocking to people is obviously not appreciated and in some of the bigger resorts, you might even find yourself removed by security for this sort of behaviour.
In addition to this, just because everyone is naked doesn’t necessarily mean that everyone is open to sexual advances. While a couple of the nudist beaches listed below definitely do accept and even encourage open minded sexual activity between consenting adults, don’t assume you’ll be able to turn up and fuck freely.
Nudist beaches are not really sex tourism destinations, but places where open minded people gather to have fun and enjoy the freedom of being naked.
1. Plage Naturiste; Cap d’Agde, France
This sprawling complex a few kilometers from Beziers in the south of France is a real eye opener. The village is enclosed and has apartment blocks, a marina, miles of beach, an assortment of restaurants and lots of nightlife.
Add in the mix the open minded people who flock here to shed their clothes for a week of freedom and I think you’ll be very surprised.
By day, sunbathe on the beach, take a boat cruise or sip a cocktail in a beach bar.
By night, the party gets messy with pool parties, foam parties, lots of strip joints (weirdly) and tales of lots of swinging opportunities.
While you can turn up and pay for access for the day, it’s actually quite affordable to stay in Cap d’Agde (plus you’ll get to experience all the fun).
2. Hedonism Resorts; Negril, Jamaica
These notorious resorts in Jamaica are clothing optional, but they’re really all about the parties. They attract a mostly American crowd and lots of couples, but everyone is welcome.
In fact the whole theme of the hotels is swinging and sex and they’re not shy about it. See the blurb below from their own home page:
When was the last time you…
Went skinny dipping in the ocean. Kissed like you did on your first date. Made passionate love like the first time. Laughed until you cried. Had a drink before noon. Dressed like a rock star. Wore a fetish outfit in public. Danced on top of a piano
So if you want to wear a fetish outfit in public and have a threesome, why not book a ticket to one of the Hedonism resorts. As a swingers beach mecca, they really can’t be beat.
If you like Scandinavian ladies (who doesn’t?) and you’d like to see lots of them naked then you’re in luck. Those Scandis love a nudist beach. Despite the usually cold weather there are lots of places to disrobe – obviously wait until the summer months though.
Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark all have beaches where you can let it all hang out. Even though there isn’t a resort like Hedonism or La Village Naturiste, you can still chill and get friendly with locals.
4. Caliente Resort; Florida, USA
Similar to Hedonism but perhaps a little less overt, this resort near Tampa, Florida is where to go on the USA mainland for some swinging and nudity fun.
Although not an entirely nudist resort, there are lots of crazy parties and several annual events including a naked 5k race.
Caliente Resorts is a massive complex with a whole village of permanent residents. If you don’t want to stay on site for a whole week you can pay for a daily membership and come and go. Pardon the expression.
5. Vera Playa; Almeria, Spain
Europes only all year round nudist resort is situated near Almeria. Vera Playa is mostly dedicated to serious naturists, but there is also a pretty big swinger scene here. As elsewhere, the community is often welcoming to newcomers so if you’re thinking of checking it out get stuck in. You can check details on the forum here.
The location in the sunny south of Spain means it’ll normally be warm enough not to shrivel up.
And actually apartments and hotels here are well located within the complex, and offer great value.
6. Riviera Maya, Mexico
The Mexican coast is home to a number of fantastic nudist beaches and swingers resorts. While you don’t have to book into a clothing optional resort, this is obviously one of the best ways to enjoy the wild side of of Mexican nudist beaches.
The best known are the Desire Resorts, which are similar to the Hedonism resorts in Jamaica. Expect swingers parties and all kinds of open minded activity.
But for those who just want to enjoy nude sunbathing, check out also Playa Yerbabuena and Playa Maruata.
Mexico isn’t short of sexy beaches so get exploring!
How to find nudist beaches
There are usually beaches that are nude friendly around the world. In Europe, pretty much every stretch of coastline will be dotted with nudist friendly beaches and even in the US you’ll find pockets of beaches for naked sunbathing.
The best thing to do is run a search on Google Maps near you, or search for nudist resorts on hotel booking sites like Trivago.
