Swap your swimsuit for a birthday suit.
Maybe it’s a personal choice, a cultural thing, or because they just don’t want to be marched to jail for breaking any local laws, but not everyone is super comfortable stripping down when they go to the beach.
Public nudity isn’t legal everywhere in the world, but there are a few places in many different countries where you can soak in the sun, naked as the day you were born. And if you consider yourself a part-time nudist, you’ll be sure to find a lot of amazing places to skinny dip, depending on which country you’re in.
That’s why Outforia, a website for outdoorsy people to discover nature and wilderness travel, compiled some data on the best countries in the world to go skinny dipping. Amongst the top five countries are France, the United States, Spain, Thailand, and Australia.
Perhaps the least surprising bit of data shows that France is the most nudist-friendly of all the countries. The country is well known for its public nude beaches, 397 in total, in addition to its 212 naturist campsites. According to Ouforia, France is also home to “Village Naturiste” in Cap d’Age, where clothing is totally optional.
Surprisingly enough (at least to some people who live there), the United States comes in second, with 299 nudist-friendly beaches, but it also has the most naturist campsites, 253 across the country — particularly in warmer states like California and Florida. Public nudity is only partially legal in the U.S.
