Travel Bite from New Zealand informs that “naturism (the preferred term for the clothing-optional philosophy and way of life) has been documented since the time of Alexander the Great”.
Their list of the “world’s top nudist spots” created by Travel Bite includes:
- Brighton, UK (where in the winter “temperatures sink below 3°C”);
- Dubrovnik, Croatia (with “a variety of beaches that cater to both domestic and international clothing-free tourists”);
- The party island of Ibiza, Spain (with “the relaxed attitude”)
- Darwin, Australia (documented since 1943, when “men of the RAAF enjoyed a skinny dip outside of Darwin whilst on duty during World War II”);
- Aletsch Glacier, Switzerland (where “600 nudists gathered to be photographed by Spencer Tunick”);
- Kirke Hyllinge, Denmark (“This Danish nudist retreat 50km from Copenhagen celebrated its 50th anniversary last year.”);
- Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic (where “you can even indulge in the naturist sport of ‘’canuding’’);
