South Africa showed that ‘sun’s out, buns out’ is more than just a catchphrase after securing a spot in the top 10 best skinny dipping spots from around the world, according to research from Outforia.
While swimming naked is still pretty taboo in certain areas, it’s now becoming a popular pastime to ‘bare it all’ and say goodbye to those bikinis and speedos at the beach. No more weird tan lines, right?
According to IOL, South Africa ranked 7th and the research found that the country’s “designated areas [includes] 17 nudist beaches and clubs and 25 naturist campsites.”
At times, the weather is just so lovely that South Africans can’t help but drive out to soak in the gorgeous views (in the nude, of course).
From the findings, France claimed the number 1 spot with 397 nudist beaches and 212 naturist campsites while the United States followed to take second place with 299 nudist beaches and 253 naturist campsites.
Spain, Thailand, Australia, Israel, United Kingdom and Greece joined South Africa in the top 10.
Meanwhile, Outforia outlined some of the countries where public nudity is unacceptable including the Caribbean Islands such as the Bahamas, Saint Lucia, and Antigua and Barbuda, as well as destinations such as Malaysia, the Maldives, Indonesia and Brazil.
