World’s best nudist resorts

Ditch your clothes and leave your inhibitions at home; we’re heading to the world’s best nudist resorts for some fun in the sun. Love them or loathe them, “clothing-optional” resorts lay claim to some of the best beaches on earth. So, forget your excess baggage; the only clothing you need for this holiday is your birthday suit.

1. Hidden Beach Resort – Au Naturel Club, Mexico
The Caribbean is the unofficial capital of nudist resorts. Number one on our list is an adults-only gem on the delectable Mexican Caribbean. Hidden Beach Resort – Au Naturel Club boasts some of the finest white-sand beaches on terra firma. It’s also home to some plush oceanfront suites, complete with Jacuzzis. The only catch is the price – the average cost for a single oceanfront suite is around $AUD441.

2. Cabanas Copal Hotel Tulum, Mexico
A more affordable option on the Mexican Caribbean is the eco-friendly tropical retreat, Cabanas Copal Hotel Tulum. This is one of the cheapest nudist resorts you’ll find in this neck of the woods. Expect high quality and great services without breaking the bank. Check out these great discount hotels in Cancun.

3. BlueBay Punta Serena Villas & Spa, Mexico
Last but not least on the Mexican Caribbean list is BlueBay Punta Serena Villas & Spa. Surrounded by mangroves, the resort comprises 12 villas and 12 deluxe bungalow rooms with rock star views of the Bay of Tenacatita and the Pacific Ocean.

4. Garden of Eden Resort, Panama
Now we’re off to Panama for a resort that would make Adam and Eve’s hearts swell with pride. Located in the province of Bocas Del Toro on Panama’s Caribbean coast, the Garden of Eden Resort ticks all the boxes for nature lovers. Leave your laptop at home; this adults-only, private island resort is a great place to get “unplugged”. And we love that it collects fresh rainwater for all its water needs.

5. Caliente Caribe, Dominican Republic
Continuing with the Caribbean theme – another great place to leave your stress where you left your clothes is Caliente Caribe resort in the Dominican Republic. This nudist resort is as laid-back or high-energy as you wish, depending on when you visit. And we love that you can have the beach all to yourself in the early morning or late afternoon.

6. Sorobon Beach Resort, Netherlands Antilles
Now to the city of Bonaire in the Caribbean’s Netherlands Antilles. If you like your water sports, you’ll love Bonaire. And if you’re watching your pennies, Sorobon Beach Resort is the place for you. Be sure to book a chalet closest to the water for the best views in the house.

7. Club Orient, French West Indies
Looking for a family-friendly nudist resort? Club Orient is a good option. Located on the island of St. Martin in the French West Indies, the hotel is made up of chalets which all go directly onto the white sand beach and overlook the uninhabited nearby islands. You won’t get TV or phone here and clothes are optional.

8. Grand Lido Negril Resort & Spa, Jamaica
A good clothing-optional destination for couples is at Grand Lido Negril Resort & Spa near Negril on Jamaica’s southwest shore. These guys really know how to treat their guests in the best possible way. The Travel Channel voted Grand Lido Negril Resort & Spa as the “best beach in the Caribbean and 6th best beach in the World”.

9. Living Waters Spa, Palm Springs
If Palm Springs is more your thing, Living Waters Spa could be the answer to your nude holiday hankerings. Combine Californian sunshine with a European-style nudist hotel and you get the Living Waters Spa. With a repeat guest rate of more than 70%, it could be the best solution for stripping off in the States.

10. Terra Cotta Inn, Palm Springs
The same sunny California has another top spot for naturalists, the Terra Cotta Inn. This former celebrity retreat site is by no means luxurious, but it’s a top pick if you’re looking for some much-needed down time sans clothes.

Top 10 Clothing-Optional Resorts on Earth… ON EARTH??? These resorts shown here are all a stonethrow away from the USA.
There is a whole planet outside of the American horizon!!
How can you claim that there is nothing worthwhile mentioning in Europe, Asia, India, Africa, Australia and South America???

Gangsta says on April 1st, 2010 at 4:38 am:

Thank you Very much for the information. I really found it when i badly need it

daniela says on June 18th, 2010 at 11:38 pm:

does anybody know of a “spa” like Sea mountain in Palm Desert, where everything is possible?

daijhi says on January 25th, 2011 at 9:31 am:

these are the top 10 luxury commercial places for rich Americans and their friends – not the top 10 places for facilities and popularity in the world. Cap D’Agde in France is regarded as the capital of Naturism. It has 20,000 naked people in a town like setting – where families are welcome – and prices start at $20 a night! But it’s not even mentioned here. This is a misleading site.

Desert Sun Resort in Palm Springs opened in 2008 when this list was posted that is the only reason I can think it would be left off. Truly the finest clothing optional resort in the USA. 3 pools, 91 rooms, 2 jacuzzis, full spa and restaurant, tennis, volleyball- you don’t want to miss it!

Jim says on April 17th, 2013 at 9:02 am:

Not a bad list, but your missing Anahata Springs in CA. Its pretty nice and low key

maree says on October 7th, 2013 at 1:04 am:

I would like to know where there is a Nudist Resort or Beach near Bundaberg. Queensland. Australia

Evelio Mis says on January 24th, 2014 at 6:08 am:

Antony Duran says on February 26th, 2014 at 4:33 am:
