5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind

Nudist resorts - uncover your perfect vacation

I have a thing for nudist resorts. I like to visit them. I like to write about them. And I know it's going to shock you, but I'm neither a hippy or a sex addict. 

enter the nude zoneNaturism can be elegant, provocative and yes, a powerful aphrodisiac. But if you're like most people and have "thigh hopes" scaring you away, the naked truth is freeing. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and looking good naked is easier when you see we all have not-so-perfect bodies.

Switch off the iPhone (and your boss), drop the kids at Grandma's and think textile-free for your next vaca. These 5-star resorts are nice enough to tell your parents about - if you dare!

Vera Playa, Spain

What's the perfect naturist vacation to you?

  • 2 miles of beach you can walk nude
  • City streets you can walk nude and receive friendly waves from the local police
  • Temperatures every day that encourage - even demand - freedom from clothing
  • A place where nudity is encouraged, not demanded

Vera Playa is a safe place to explore nudism if it's your first textile-free adventure. Many European (and particularly Spanish) Naturists don't practice the 24/7 rule found in North America and the Caribbean. Naturism here is weather dependant and practiced heavily on the beaches - but clothing has its place. Decorum rules ask that everyone be clothed by 8 pm, for dinner and the bars.

Vera Playa, SpainAccommodations consist of rentable private apartments and a 300 room hotel. Although it's listed as a 4-star facility, expect basic, clean rooms but not a lot of luxury. Opt for the B&B rate and skip the all-inclusive option - there is more interesting dining outside the naturist zones.

If you're looking for a family oriented nude vacation and don't need all night discos to keep you enthralled, Vera Playa is for you.

Visit Vera Playa Resort online or see what other travelers have to say about them on Trip Advisor.

Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel.

Important note about Sea Mountain Inn! Yes it's nudist, but it's also "Lifestyle" which means that public sex is a big part of it. For someone just expecting a nudist resort it could be a major issue to be surrounded by some pretty wild in-your-face sexual activity. If it's your thing, you'll be in heaven. If it's not, you'll kick yourself for not knowing.

Hi Julia If you're looking for textile-free holiday destinations in Europe, Istria in Croatia has to be at the top, or certainly very near the top of your list. Beautiful hot, sunny weather, very clear warm sea - good visibility - ideal for diving & snorkeling, secret coves and just too many locations to list! Hope this arouses your curiousity :) kind regards Andrej

My wife and I love Terra Cotta Inn located in Palm Springs, California. It was our first nudist experience. Very laid back, very peaceful, and if you want to be left alone that is fine if you want to mingle that is fine. Tom and his wife are great hosts. we recommend Terra Cotta Inn for first timers as well as for everyone. They do not have loud music and really the crowd there is 40+ in age. Great for us!

I think you forgot an important resort that will blow your mind by omitting Caliente Resort and Spa in Land o Lakes, FL

Also, Julia, you might want to visit another "Top 10" clothing optional spot - Living Waters Spa. We are Southern California's only clothing optional mineral water spa. We've been featured in the New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, USA Today, Ellen Degeneres / AOL.com and others. We think you'll enjoy us too!

Hi Julia, Thanks, I remember your story about us too, thank you very much about it. Because we're the most mainstream nudist resort out west and perfect for first time couples trying topless or nude sunbathing and the most popular nudist resort in California, a lot of times people forget we're also one of the most luxurious because we're so affordable. We're able to keep our rates affordable because we cater to vacationers around the world and are busy 7 days a week, instead of just catering to the local Southern Californian market on weekends. Julia, Feel free visiting our resort someday. We would love to show you it and you can experience for yourself why we're the most popular place out west. You can call and ask for me personally. Tom

Thanks Tom! I've long wanted to visit Terra Cotta but every time I make it to California, it slips off my radar. I am resolved to do it though - and I will be sure to call and ask for you! Julia

Hi Julia, I look forward to meeting you someday too. Call us at 800-786-6938 and ask for me, Tom. Your readers will love learning about us. As the saying goes, "value is the new luxury." Having always been the best value topless and nude sunbathing resort in the western US, you will see why we are also the most popular and why all your readers will want to stay with us because nowadays no one likes overpaying for vacations. Take care, hope to see you soon. Tom Terra Cotta Inn Sunny Palm Springs, CA

Hi Julia, Great choices. However, you left out one of the best choices for couples and girlfriend vacations. You forgot The Terra Cotta Inn clothing optional resort and spa in sunny Palm Springs, CA. Some people still enjoy paying lots of money for their vacations. But nowadays most people now look for the best value for their vacation dollars, not bragging rights on how much they overpaid. And the Terra Cotta Inn is perfect. That's why repeat guests from around the world will fly only there for their naturist vacations I realize you could only include 5 places in your story, and not everyone always wants to know about the popular resorts that everyone wants to go to, but I bet your readers will thank you for telling them about Terra Cotta Inn.

Thanks for stopping by, Tom and reminding me about the Terra Cotta Inn. I've written about this beautiful spot in California: http://gogirlfriend.com/reviews/top-10-clothing-optional-resorts-exposed-12930 - and it's nice to hear the inn is still going strong. Always love to hear from my readers! Julia
