Brits looking to strip off for a naked trip to the beach can now consult a list of the best naturist beaches across the UK.
Naturism has been on the rise over the past year, with lockdown encouraging many to switch their stuffy work suits for their birthday suits.
British Naturism says new membership applications doubled in the early part of lockdown and continued to grow from there.
They report ending the year with more members than since 2014 and have had well over 1000 join up since the pandemic began.
While some may prefer to head to sunnier climes to beach it in the buff, with rules surrounding foreign travel still looking uncertain, this summer, naturists may have to brave the beaches in Britain instead.
Thankfully, the travel experts from My Baggage have explored 11,000 miles of coastline to reveal five of the most popular spots among people who want to bare all on the beach – in spite of the British weather.
Interestingly, it is actually perfectly legal to be naked on the beach across England, Scotland, and Wales.
However, it does become an offence if it can be proved the person stripped off intending to upset, shock, cause fear or alarm.
“It may surprise you to know that ALL beaches in the UK are nudist beaches since it is not against the law to be naked in a public place so long as you are not deliberately flaunting yourself in order to alarm or distress other people, or engage in sexual acts,” explains Andrew Welch from British Naturism.
