For Brits who just can’t keep their bits covered on holiday, here is Hotelopia’s guide to favourite nudist hotspots in Europe.
Note that many of Europe’s top nudist beaches are in Spain. According to legislation, the Spanish Naturist Federation states that nudism is just one of your rights here, allowing you to happily get your kit off on the beach. So feel the freedom. Just don’t forget the sunscream.
1. Tahiti Beach, St Tropez, France: Since the 1960s, the south of France has become topless tolerant, and even embraced bare bodies sunbathing on the beaches. Probably the best place to risk whipping off the bathers is Tahiti Beach in St Tropez for the all-over golden tan.
2. Es Trenc beach, Majorca: This is a favourite beach for most Hotelopia staff here in Majorca, although I’m not sure how many of us head to the nudist section. This paradise beach features not just white powder sands and turquoise waters but lots of nuddies somewhere in the middle. Be warned!
3. Platja Mitjorn, Formentera: As the baby of the Balearic Islands, Formentera offers miles of relatively empty golden sands, and a natural paradise for those who forget to pack their swimwear.
4. Paradise Beach – Mykonos, Greece: operating on a 70% topless, 30% nudist basis, this beautiful Greek beach offers the freedom to get back to nature. What’s more, no one will complain.
5. Platja d’en Bossa, Ibiza: There’s nothing reserved about Ibiza’s longest beach, Platja Mitjorn. Spilling over from the island’s hedonist days, it’s as acceptable to get your kit off here, as it is to keep it on.
6. Studland Bay, Dorset, UK: And if you’re reluctant to leave the UK, then Studland Bay in Dorset has been the location of a nudist hotspot for years. Although there have been reports that the beach is eroding, there’s nothing stopping visitors from getting naked here.
