Plage de Tahiti -- St. Tropez, France
The beaches of St. Tropez are famous for pioneering the topless sunbathing craze of the '60s, and Plage de Tahiti's no exception. It's also a well-known celebrity haunt, so leave the camera at the hotel (but bring your iPhone) and keep your eyes peeled for some famous flesh.
You might see Eva Green naked.
You'll probably see Gerard Depardieu naked.
Praia do Pinho -- Balneário Camboriú, Brazil
Located about 50 miles north of Florianopolis, 2013's happiest city in the world
, Praia do Pinho's widely considered to be the first naturist beach in Brazil. Nudity's mandatory
here, so no taking off your shirt and then being all, like, "I'm totally going to get settled in first". No, you'll have to strip down if you partake in the fun.
There's an inn and cabins for rent with ocean views.
Unaccompanied males are't
allowed on the beach, unless they're members of the International Naturist Federation. As you are likely not,
don't forget a female friend.
