7 Nude Beaches Where the Bold Can Bare It All

San Gregorio – San Mateo County, California, USA
San Gregorio is the oldest nude beach in the United States, meaning that it has been around since the 1960’s, not that its visitors are senior citizens – sorry gramps. Complete with tide pools, cliffs, lava tubes and a lagoon, this beach offers plenty of alternative natural beauty for awkward visitors to focus on.

Praia do Pinho – Brazil
No list of top nude beaches would be complete without mention of Brazil, even though the perfect bodies found on its beaches are likely largely the result of extensive plastic surgery (no one actually looks like that, right?!). When in Brazil, Praia do Pinho is a great spot for nervous first-nude-timers needing a push, as nudity on this beach is actually mandatory. Lonely men however are not, as unaccompanied males are not permitted on the beach without a female companion.

Shelley Beach – Manly, Australia
You may have trouble seeing through the beards, dreads and smoke that saturate the small hippie town of Manly, but you will definitely be feeling good. A short ferry ride from downtown Sydney brings both locals and the occasional tourist to this laid-back nude hangout. A perfect place to pass out in the sun without the risk of tan-lines.
