The Meandering Naturists Guide for Where to Get Naked in the World

My wife first visited a nude beach with a friend while in college. We didn’t meet one another until a couple years later, at which point naturism, or more specifically – naturist travel – became an integral part of our relationship. When our children were young, we grew frustrated while looking for family-friendly naturist places in the United States, so we saved like crazy and headed for France to discover the ultimate in family naturism. (In that case, a place called La Jenny) Our kids are grown now, but we’re always eager to add another star to our naturist travel map. (Click on the image below to go to our interactive Naked Places Google map.)

We have grown particularly perplexed in trying to figure out naturist travel in America. Some people confuse naturist places with clubs and resorts that encourage/allow “Life-stylers” (swingers and other friends with benefits), while other nudist resorts have evolved into time-worn campgrounds with few amenities for those seeking an active vacation. This blog exists to help seasoned and would-be naturists locate your favorite naked place that’s in alignment for whatever it is you think you’re looking for (even if that’s not what we’re looking for). Life is too short to spend time and money and an ill-fated nakation.

This is most definitely a work in progress. Even though this blog is over eight years old with over 150 posts, I’ve just recently started going back to standardize trip reports and reviews so they all look and feel the same. In the meantime, I’m also reorganizing our trip reviews by geographical region, as delineated below. (Just to mix things up a bit!) Check back frequently as links “go live!” I plan to populate our trip report pages in the following order…


  • North America – East: I’m currently working on developing this page!
  • France
  • Asia (Thailand & Bali)
  • Croatia
  • North America – West
  • Greece
  • Australia
  • Mexico
  • France
  • North America – Middle
  • Spain
  • The Caribbean
  • Italy
  • South America
  • Germany
  • South Africa
  • Netherlands

Or… you can always simply search for a place by keyword that we’ve already blogged about over the past eight years:

Have questions about naturist travel? Ask Naturist Dan. Or maybe you have a suggestion for a naked place we haven’t found yet? Click through and Say Hello. We simply want to support the campaign for normalizing naturism and social nudity, and hope these pages will make at least small contribution to that end.

Bon voyage!
