The 10 Best Clothing-Optional Resorts

Clothing-optional resorts have come a long way from the “nudist camps” of the past that had the feel of a basic summer camp. Today’s top clothing-optional resorts are upscale, luxurious tropical retreats. Most are targeted toward people who enjoy being in the sun “au naturel,” but some cater to vacationers looking for an erotic getaway. Most of the top-rated clothing-optional resorts are all-inclusive, and almost all are adults-only (18+ or 21+).

Au naturel resorts tend to have guidelines in place to ensure that guests feel comfortable. These include not allowing photography of any kind; prohibiting staring or “gawking” at other guests; prohibiting public displays of intimate touching or sexual acts, and prohibiting sexual advances toward other guests or staff.

If you’re interested in spicing up your next couples’ getaway at a clothing-optional resort, here are the 10 top clothing-optional resorts in the world.
