The 10 best nudist beaches in Europe - two in GreeceTwo Greek beaches, Elia in Mykonos and Kokkini Ammos (Red Sand) in Crete are among Europe’s 10 Best Nudist Beaches

Two Greek beaches, Elia in Mykonos and Kokkini Ammos (Red Sand) in Crete are among Europe’s 10 Best Nudist Beaches, according to Wonderlusteurope

The leading travel site notes that "a day at the beach can be the most relaxing thing on Earth. That is, if you don’t spend the following few hours tirelessly scrubbing the sand out of your swimsuit and the whole next day contorting your body into positions with the aim of evening out your tan lines. Let’s cut the fuss. Scattered throughout Europe are some of the most beautiful beaches, which just so happen to encourage the au natural holidaymaker. So let’s take a look at some of the finest strips of beach (unintentional pun) that are made for skinny dipping and nude sunbathing!"

The complete list of  the 10 best nudist beaches in Europe includes:

1. Linguizzetta Beach, Corsica, France

This 7km stretch if beach is one of the longest in Europe, which means that not only will you be able to enjoy it without your clothes, but you’ll have plenty of space to frolic in the sun all day. The combination of the fine white sand and the azure sea gives for breath-taking views and there are even some nudist resorts lining the beach if you feel like bearing all for your whole trip.

2. Studland Beach, Dorsett, England

Brits often have a reputation for being prudish so you may be surprised to find out that located on the north-eastern tip of Dorset lies the aptly names Studland Beach. The nudist area which is marked out by signs is surrounded by sand dunes and a backdrop of heather, so it’s perfect for those who want some seclusion. This beach always makes the list of ‘top UK beaches’ and is a little gem that’s not to be missed.

3. Zlatni Rat (Golden Horn), Brač, Croatia

This particular beach is one of the most famous in Croatia, a country known for its spectacular coastline. By taking a trip here you will be able to relish the surroundings of one of the most popular beaches in the Mediterranean as well as having the ability to catch some tan-line-free rays in the designated nudist area. This area is perfect for those who want a bit of seclusion by tucking into one of the many small coves dotted around the beach.

4. Es Cavallet, Ibiza, Spain

When you think of Ibiza you most likely think of a place that’s full of fun and somewhere to let loose. Now you literally can let it all loose at this spectacular nudist beach which is located near to Ibiza town. Es Cavallet is one of the livelier nudist beaches in Europe and you will instantly feel comfortable due to it energetic vibes at the height of summer. This is the ideal place to wind down after a hectic night of partying.

5. Plage de Tahiti, St Tropez, France

Since Brigitte Bardot and Ursula Andress strutted around here in their teeny bikinis in the 50’s, the French Riviera has always attracted those who love to bear all. Whilst this beach is an unofficial nudist beach, there is no shortage of perfectly bronzed skin on display. The glamorous Côte d’Azur is also known for drawing in a famous face or two, so you may even get a glimpse of a celebrity tush or two.

6. Elia Beach, Mykonos, Greece

The Greek Gods were known for their impeccable bodies and on this Greek Island there are plenty of beaches where you’ll be able to show off your very own sculpted physique. Or, just your extremely average physique. Ok, your Dad-bod. This beach is often overshadowed by its more crowded and party friendly neighbour, Paradise Beach, but this spot which is about 30 mins from Mykanos town is the ideal place to paddle and sunbathe in peace.

7. Agesta Beach, Stockholm, Sweden

This nudist beach has more to offer than just being a place that you can be comfortable clothes free. Thanks to the Magelungen Lake, it has become a well-liked beach location among nudist travellers. Not only can you take a splash in the lake, but the picnic table and BBQ areas which are surrounded by trees ensure for a great day out. Just be careful where those flames go if you’re cooking in the nude!

8. Red Sand Beach, Crete, Greece

The second Greek nudist beach on our list is the world-famous Red Beach. Many argue this secluded stretch of coastline is the best nudist beach in Europe, and you can often find its name high up when ranking the best nudist beaches in the world. It’s iconic red sand and colourful history confirms this site as a firm favourite among nudists.

9. Buhne 16 Beach, Germany

You may be wondering why a beach in Germany has made this list, with the country not typically being associated with its coastline. Yet, on the tiny island of Sylt lies Germany’s oldest official nude beach where even the low temperatures don’t stop anyone from stripping off.

10. Guvano Beach, La Spezia, Italy

To get to this beach you must walk along the mountains and through a tunnel where you do, eventually I assure you, see the light! Because of its remote location this beach is wonderful for those who may feel a bit reluctant to de-clothe.  Nevertheless, once you get there you will not be disappointed- this pebbly beach is well worth the journey.
