Hanlan’s Point – Toronto, Canada

Unlike Wreck Beach, Vancouver’s naked oasis located at the end of a very long staircase on the Canadian west Coast, Hanlan’s Point in Toronto offers a stair-free freshwater nude alternative. Located on Lake Ontario, only minutes away from the downtown core of Toronto, Canada’s largest and most multicultural city, Hanlan’s Point provides visitors with a highly diverse and accepting atmosphere without the salty aftertaste.

Playa Zipolite – Zipolite, Mexico

Also known as the Beach of the Dead, Playa Zipolite is anything but. Offering a much more laid-back atmosphere compared to the chaos and crowds of Cancun, Playa Zipolite has become a favorite spot for backpackers. As one of the few nude beaches in Mexico, Zipolite’s open-minded vibe and interesting uses of rubber bands by the local sunbathers make this beach a must see.

Plage des Culs Nus – France

Located on the southwestern coast of France, rumor has it that recent shifts in wind and sand have turned this nude beach into a solid surfer hot spot. Not sure if surfing is considered a form of “bad naked,” but I’m more than willing to find out.
