This the first on a series of nude beach etiquette.
Respect the environment, most nudist beaches are in a National Park or Nature reserve. The area is likely to have sensitive areas where revegetation is underway, delicate dunes and prohibited or ‘no go’ areas. They may have threatened species of flora and fauna in the area so use only the designated walkways.
Ensure you only go nude in the designated areas. Some beaches you visit may have some local issues simmering away that you are not going to be aware of, with various groups actively attempting to remove the nude status of the beach.
If only part of the beach is designated a nude area – get dressed before leaving and this means more than a T-shirt. The rules at home might be different to your holiday spot. Also ensure the beach you have visited is definitely a nudist beach, you will soon be made aware if you have made this mistake.
Don’t litter – take everything you brought with you home and leave only your footprints. You may even see some people cleaning up the beach, if you feel like it the locals will appreciate your efforts, take more trash out than you brought in.
