10. Bellevue Beach, Klapenburg, Denmark
Since it is close to the city (six miles north of Copenhagen), this beach can get quite crowded on sunny days. The crowd is young and loud music is common, but the beach itself is beautiful; the clear water and stone-free sand make it perfect for beach and water sports. If you prefer to just lie down and soak up some sun, you can take in the spectacular view of Sweden and the Bresund Bridge that links the two countries. Although the northern part of the beach is known as the "gay area," it is also where most nudists of both sexes and sexual orientations hang out.
9. Gunnison Beach, Sandy Hook, New Jersey
Gunnison Beach, located on the Sandy Hook peninsula in the northeast corner of New Jersey, has been officially recognized as a clothing optional beach for several decades. In fact, it is probably the largest and most firmly established nude beach on the East Coast of the United States. There are even signs that warn visitors that they may encounter nude sunbathers beyond a certain point. This huge sandy beach attracts a large and diverse crowd on hot summer days; the families, couples and singles mingling together will instantly make you feel comfortable.
8. Cap d'Agde, France
Located west of the famous Côte d'Azur region in the South of France, this busy resort area is known as the "naked city." Besides sunbathing and swimming, you can do your shopping, banking and dining in the buff along this terrific three-mile-long beach. Although it can get quite packed in the summer, the festive atmosphere and great weather will make it worth your while.
Plus, the city also boasts several resorts, shops, restaurants, and nightclubs. Because there is a part of the city that isn't nudist, you may encounter some clothed beachcombers who are big on stares but low on fun -- don't let them ruin your time. You'll undoubtedly feel right at home after a few hours here.
7. Morfa Dyffryn, North Wales, UK
Considered the best nude beach in the UK by many, Morfa Dyffryn is situated on the Welsh coast between Barmouth and Harlech. On warm summer days, up to 500 naturists enjoy the fine sand and clear water of this beautiful mile-long beach, which never seems crowded due to its size. Visitors include families, singles and couples, although the northern part of the beach is mostly frequented by a gay crowd. The good news is that Morfa Dyffryn is large enough to give all types of nude sunbathers enough breathing space.
6. Orient Beach, St. Martin, West Indies
Possibly the biggest and most popular public nude beach in the West Indies, the naturist part is located at the south end, near Club Orient. But thanks to a St. Martin law that prohibits any waterfront property from being privately owned, you can visit even if you're not staying at the resort. You can even have lunch completely naked at Club Orient's outdoor restaurant, as evidenced by the sign that says "No shirt, no problem."
Although the occasional nudist or topless woman can be found on other parts of Orient Beach, you should stick to the naturist section if you want to feel truly at ease. Oh yeah, and did I mention that the pristine sand, clear turquoise waters and rolling hills surrounding the beach are unbelievable?
