In our current subzero temperatures, every cell in our bodies is yearning for the sun’s touch on our skin. This is possible in quite a few pieces of paradise. You’d be surprised you wouldn’t need to leave North America to visit some of these!

Negril, Jamaica

Negril, Jamaica is constantly undergoing renovation (which doesn’t bother guests one bit), and the extras in its hedonistic resorts are top-grade.

Pasco County, Florida

Many think this is the US’ nudist capital. Your clothing optional vacation awaits. If you want to experience nudity without going to the beach, just head to one of their nudist parks. Let yourself be immersed in some of nature’s most beautiful settings in your birthday suit.

Praia do Pinho, Brazil

This was the first and is still the best nudist beach in Brazil. There is a small hotel and restaurant here as well, so you can stay as long as you want. There are two beaches in Praia do Pinho – a nudist one and a normal one – so you’ll experience the serene white sands either way.


Admittedly, this isn’t the first nudist destination that springs to mind – more frequent associations include fishing villages, snowy mountains, and icy winds. However, this beautiful country is also home to dozens of nudist spots. The coastline is so long that one can always find a private spot of beach to strip down on. And even if you are seen, know the locals are VERY open-minded.

Caribe, Dominican Republic

Caliente Caribe, a naturist resort near the town of Puerto Plata in the DR, welcomes free thinkers (of all sexualities) from around the world. There are hundreds of sparkling pools, clubs, and extras like ocean-side massages here. Nudity is an added bonus. That aside, there’s plenty to do – athletic types will appreciate the snorkeling and kayaking facilities, tennis courts, and well-equipped gyms.
