Are you a regular naturist or do you just want to try out a new – and unusual – way of travelling? In both cases, here is a list of tips for traveling “au naturel”.
1. Book a vacation in a Mexican nudist resort
In the past few years Mexico has become a top tourist destination and it is now on the bucket list of many nude travelers. Mexico offers numerous facilities to enjoy an off-clothes vacation, here are three of our favorite resorts:
This adults-only eco-resort is situated near Cancun Airport and it mainly attracts crowds of hippy. You’ll enjoy a super relaxing vacation in wooden-crafted villas with 360-degree views, right at the beach. The resort allows you to immerge yourself in the nature and forget about the crazy urban life that you have at home. Indeed, there is limited Wi-Fi connection, no TV, telephones, nor air-conditioning. There is even a seaside spa where you can book a treatment entirely based on organic ingredients and Maya-themed purification rituals.
Temptation Resort, Cancun
The Temptation Resort in Cancun is – as the name suggests – an adults-only resort located only 20 minutes’ drive from the Cancun airport. The all-inclusive resort, which was entirely refurbished in 2018, has three swimming pools and seven Jacuzzis. Foodies will also be satisfied: there are seven specialized restaurants offering typical dishes from more than 15 countries, as well as numerous 24-hour bars.
Hidden Beach Resort, Cancun
The Hidden Beach Resort is an adults-only and an all-inclusive resort. It offers a private beach, an outdoor swimming pool with a bar, a fitness center, night entertainment, and many other activities enjoyed in the nude. All accommodations include free minibars and ocean views. Some of them have even a pool.
2. Get naked in Arizona
If you are looking for some relax “au naturel” in Arizona, then you should stop by El Dorado Hot Springs, located close to Phoenix (Arizona). El Dorado is a rustic mineral water spa situated over a huge natural hot spring. The nudist section is called Desert Pete, and it includes a small relaxation area, showers, chairs, and tubs. Keep in mind that alcohol is not allowed. If you would like some privacy, it is even possible to book a private soaking pool!
If you would like to join an American naturist travel club, take into consideration the Arizona Wildflowers. Counting more than 200 adult members, it is one of the largest travel clubs of the American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR). The club was born in 1980 as a small group of friends, but then it grew until becoming an enormous club of nudists. You can join them for a pool party, a camping night, a potluck, and other events. Everybody is welcome, regardless of race, age, gender, income, or political beliefs.
3. Relax on a naturist cruise in Croatia
Book a naturist charming Croatian cruise and swim in the blue waters of Croatia entirely naked. There are many tour operators organizing this kind of experience along the Croatian coast. Most of the cruises include visits to historic towns and islands. Of course, there will be many opportunities for nude sunbathing and swimming. Nudity on board is expected; however, you will have to make an effort and wear some clothes during mealtimes and when in port. Whichever tour operator you choose, they normally all offer entertainment, fine dining, theme nights, wellness and fitness facilities and more; all of these with like-minded people!
4. Take a city break in Europe
For people that just get started with social nudity, it might be a good idea to combine a city visit with a spa experience. The spa is, indeed, the most common place to get naked.
Combine your visit to Brussels with a relaxing day at the Thermen Dilbeek. This luxury spa facility is located only 15 minutes from Brussels’ city center. It offers indoor and outdoor areas with hot tubs, saunas, sunbathing areas, swimming pools, and a large gym equipped with everything you need to stay in shape. There is also a restaurant and a bar area.
If you are planning to visit Munich, book your stay at the Erding Spa, located around 20 minutes away from Munich airport. This huge facility – which is considered the largest spa in Europe – includes a waterpark, a sand “beach”, 26 saunas, a variety of swimming pools, steam rooms, rest areas and hot tubs. But be aware that not the entire complex accepts social nudity. There is an ad-hoc area called “Sauna Paradise” which is for nudists only. This is covered by a large glass dome that can be opened during the warm season. Don’t forget to spoil yourself with a beauty treatment or a massage in the wellness center!
Even Amsterdam hosts some good venues to take your clothes off! The Zuiver Spa Hotel, located within the Amsterdam forest, is an elegant spa with many leisure and sport facilities. The spa hotel has 31 rooms/suites, a gym, 6 saunas, 3 steam rooms, a swimming pool, hot tubs, a warm stone bed area, a jacuzzi style area, a relaxing area, a bar and a restaurant. The spa is an entirely naked environment, with the exception of Tuesday’s and Thursday’s, which are swimwear days.
