Most religions often expressed fear in regard to nature, supposedly “defiled” by the original sin. As centuries went by, Rabelais, Montaigne or Rousseau brought our body back to its former glory. Society, driven by winds of freedom, now puts it in the limelight. Mix-ups still occur between naturism and libertinism, but many regions across the world offer exceptional naturist sites and beaches. Get undressed too!
Haulover Beach, nudity Florida-style
With more than 1,200 miles of coastline, Florida delights boisterous children, idle lovers and retired gamblers. In Miami, naked bodies will have a hard time finding their naturist paradise, sometimes venturing onto beaches where the practice is illegal. And still, a long white sandy beach spreads over 1.2 mile east of the Biscayne Bay: Haulover Beach, that's its name, borders on the tourist structures of the eponymous park and welcomes uncovered bathers in the summer heat. Bare if you dare!

In Osaka and Kobe's onsens' steaming heat
Onsens, or Japanese hot springs, are famous for their therapeutic properties, easing pain and illness on completely bare skin. Less than 18 miles apart, Osaka and Kobe are filled with these outdoor and indoor baths that reflect on an ancestral Japanese way of life. For centuries, these simmering waters have charmed Japanese people and tourists alike, enticing them to move slowly in order to purify body and mind. Break free from oppressive sheets of clothing under the cherry trees of the Arima Onsen in Kobe, with a large crowd at Spa World in Osaka or even amid the Naniwa no yu facilities.

Caribbean stripping in Palma de Mallorca
In your quest for wild and preserved nature environments, make a stop in Mallorca. The largest of the Balearic Islands attracts many visitors and holiday-makers, yet retains secret creaks and beaches. South of Palma, Es Trenc is the last un-built sandbank of the region. Sheltered by dunes and palm trees, the crystal clear water spreads out over the white stretch, which delicate grains marry the wrinkles and creases of bodies lying down, bare skin against the sand. Everybody finds peace and relaxation there, along the Mediterranean Sea.
Naked eye, naked victory and… naked body in Stockholm
Head for Stockholm, Swedish capital. When preparing for a trip to Nordic territories, you may think that you'll need a lot. However, we'd recommend you not carry anything! Swedish people are quite uninhibited when it comes to nudity. Far from being indecent, it rather unites them in humility and equality. Easy to reach from the metropolis, the Glasbruksudden-Nacka, Källtorp and Ågesta-Farsta beaches offer nudists an occasion to take off their clothes and feel the springtime breeze cooling off bodies and hearts. Before you leave, treat yourself to a sauna session. More than a thousand-year-old tradition, it is a state of mind.

Naturist waltz in Montevideo
As a small green ecotone bordered by the South Atlantic Ocean, Uruguay opens up a crisscross of plains and steep mountains to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation. A few miles away from Montevideo and the Punta del Este airport, a crescent moon-shaped fine sandy beach clasps with clear waters. From September to May, the warm dunes of the Chihuahua beach are riddled with naked bodies. From Punta Ballena, naturists come to enjoy the sunset and give in to the tender touch of the ocean. Accompanied with your Eve or Adam, set off to conquer the naturist world.
