THIS weekend may have been a washout, but the heatwave will soon be back on. This is where holidaymakers can strip off and go skinny dipping this summer without raising any eyebrows at all, based on TripAdvisor reviews. Patara is situated on the Turkish Riviera and is an unofficial nudist spot - but you should be OK to go naked here. One reviewer suggests that by walking for around 30 to 40 minutes away from the tourist areas, you'll find the quiet part of the where people strip off. They said: "If you stay to the back of the beach, [it's] probably best [as] it wont offend anyone who might walk on the shore line. It's not just about chilling out here - the beach also has wild foam parties where people let loose in the nude.
You know it's true: nothing on this Earth feels better than hitting the ocean wearing nothin' but your birthday suit. But why are Americans so shy about swimming in the buff, and why are European nudist beaches so darn crowded? The only answer, it seems, is to veer off Europe's beaten path to the continent's secret nudie paradises.
Tisvildeleje is a charming little historic town on the coast of Denmark. Set on a large reserve, this beach offers more than half a kilometre of ultimate peace and seclusion where clothes are optional. This wild beach is characterised by high dunes bordered by thick brush and forest, and of course people bathing in all their naked glory. Also, the Italian mainland is right nearby.
