The Beach Guide

UK Naturist Beaches

The law in the UK on public nudity and nude sunbathing is a bit of a grey area. In theory, it is perfectly legal as long as one does not 'harass, alarm or distress' others! Baring (!) that in mind we have compiled a list of official and unofficial naturist beaches in the British Isles which should help any prospective naturists enjoy doing what is natural and avoid causing offence.

Have a look at this list of the best nudist beaches in the world if you fancy something a little further afield, although a fair few of them are here in the UK...
