Spending a vacation or your honeymoon at a clothing optional resort promises great memories and no unsightly tan lines. For many people, going back to nature has become a positive lifestyle.
Clothing-optional resorts tend to be laid back and luxurious, and there are a lot of choices. Whether guests are first-timers or veterans, they quickly discover that clothing-optional resorts excel at creative entertainment. Many have themed or body-painting parties. Halloween can become very inventive without clothes.

In addition, if anyone ever believes that your life lacks excitement, you can shut down any room by starting the conversation with, “Well, the last time I was at the nudist colony …” Dressed or not, you will hold center stage.
Different resorts bring different types of experiences. Let’s see which one suits you the best.

Most first-time visitors to a clothing-optional resort need to keep an open mind to new experiences. And not all resorts are the same. Some permit some clothing, others are nude-only. Some restaurants require clothes, others do not; however, if they don’t, bringing a towel on which to sit is a must.
Some resorts are couples only, and others include both couples and singles. Each guest has to determine his or her own level of comfort. It is considered rude to stare at people at a clothing-optional resort as it will likely make them feel uncomfortable. Proper behavior is appreciated here as much as everywhere else.
Swinging or otherwise engaging in relationships is not that uncommon, but basic manners should prevail – no means no. Some resorts are more lenient toward swinging, while others are very family-oriented and even permit children.
Most clothing-optional resorts will not permit cameras and cell phones in public areas. Guests should feel safe in the knowledge that they are not being photographed.
When visiting a clothing-optional resort, pack a few appropriate outfits. Guests frequently end up exploring areas where clothing will be required.
