Nude Beaches You’ll Actually Want to Visit on Your Honeymoon

Sometimes, it’s just so hot out we want nothing more than to strip every inch of clothing off and jump in the ocean — especially on your honeymoon! While that may be a fine idea at our private home pool, it’s not really allowed at a public beach – unless, of course, you find yourself at a nude beach. It’s your honeymoon after all, so you know, clothing optional.

It’s an incredible fantasy, absolutely. But we need to be realistic: While some are completely comfortable at nude beaches or “clothing optional” resorts, others are a little more reserved.

And even if you are open to a nude beach, they are most certainly not created equal. We’ve probably all stumbled upon those that are decidedly sketchy, but others are downright beautiful.

Expedia recently released their annual Flip Flop Report , a global survey of trends in travel and the topic of nude beaches came up. The results showed that worldwide, 14 percent of those who responded have gone nude at the beach, and 37 percent were anxious about seeing someone nude or topless while they’re relaxing in the sun.

So while the majority of us are not taking advantage of nude beaches, enough of us are that there ne to be some good options out there.

Another study, via Trip.

com, found 28.4 percent of people are somewhat uncomfortable with the idea of getting naked for an activity this summer, but 29.

5 percent said if they were to get naked, it would be for skinny dipping. The interest is definitely out there.

So if you are going to go nude on the beach, where should you be going? There’s actually a lot of pretty incredible options out there. Here, we round up 11 beaches where clothing is definitely optional.

Miami, Florida

Miami has a long-standing reputation as a fantastic destination for couples looking for a little love.

Dress down – or in nothing at all – and head over to Haulover Beach, Florida’s only legally recognized nude beach. “Spend the afternoon enjoying the sand dunes while you work on getting rid of those tan lines,” says Jessica Bisesto, senior editor at TravelPirates.

Ladies Beach in Ulcinj, Montenegro is worth a visit. “As you probably assumed from the title, only women are allowed to bathe here, naked or not, during summer months,” says Lola Méndez, a full-time traveler sharing her adventures on Miss Filatelista.

The water here is high in sulfur so locals believe it has powers to increase fertility. “It’s inspiring to see the typically completely covered Muslim women free themselves from their headscarves and lay bare to the sun.

I was invited in on card games, girl chat, and d fruit with locals, and never once felt self-conscious about my body,” says Mendez. Cell phones aren’t allowed and if you don’t feel comfortable nude you’re more than welcome to bath in your full suit, or topless.

João Pessoa, Brazil

Tambaba, Brazil’s oldest nude beach, offers you and your partner privacy as well as stunning cliffs, creating a fantastic backdrop for your romantic escape. “You won’t catch any Brazilian bikinis at this beach as nudity is required in the main section.

Once you’ve gotten your nude beach fix, head over to the bars by the beach’s parking area for a drink with your boo,” says Bisesto.

Mykonos, Greece

For couples looking to enjoy a risqué romance in a party paradise: “Head to Paradise Beach on the Greek island of Mykonos for a once-in-a-lifetime experience,” says Bisesto.

Leave your clothes behind and dance the night away at a full moon party, or grab a sun chair and enjoy the Mediterranean views.
