The 12 Best Nude Beaches in the World | MENS HEALTH

A global guide to where in the world you can sunbathe topless or naked, without getting into trouble, has been unveiled.

Despite travel restrictions last year, there were over 10.7million Google searches made globally in the past 12 months for ‘nude beaches’, ‘nude resorts’ and ‘sunbathe nude’. The USA, Japan and Brazil made the majority of those searches. However, researchers say that when population size is accounted for, the people that want to sunbathe naked the most are from Australia, New Zealand and Ireland.

Sunbathing topless, or partially naked, is received very differently around the world, with researchers adding that religious and cultural histories make a big impact on how acceptable or offensive it is deemed. Even within a single country, like the USA for example, different regions have very different stances and laws on naturist activity.

This worldwide map reveals where you can sunbathe topless or naked, without getting into trouble, and where it should be avoided. The 38 countries in red are ones where public nudity of any kind, even non-offensive public topless sunbathing, is completely unacceptable or illegal. Countries coloured green, of which there are 39, are those that are relaxed about public topless or nude sunbathing. The 29 countries marked in amber indicate ambiguous or contradictory laws or where there are very limited places to naked sunbathe. Grey countries indicate where not enough information was available to make a categorisation
