For Nick and Lins, the couple behind the hugely popular blog Naked Wanderings , their nude beach of choice is a remote offering within Parque Nacional Natural Tayrona in Colombia. We spent two days at this nude beach and noticed that for curious Colombians, as well as many independent travellers and backpackers, it was their first nude beach experience. It's secluded location is found at the base of a steep trail that descends from the campus of the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. It is also the oldest legal nude beach in Canada. Jessa, a nudist since and shortly thereafter a writer at the Nude Blogger , raves about Point Addis in Victoria. I've done all sorts of activities there in the buff, from laying down sunbathing to playing frisbee, doing some yoga and swimming. Back when I was living in Victoria, this was my go-to beach It's found on the drive towards the Great Ocean Road from Melbourne , so the scenery is just stunning, with beautiful rugged cliff faces and a lovely community there. There was a variety of men and women at the beach, with more and more younger people attending too. Diana, also known as Naturism Girl, has been a naturist since and documents her experiences on her website.
