By Robert Curley. For those who are looking for an all-over tan, many Caribbean islands set aside particular beaches for nude sunbathing. On certain islands, you can even go topless at each and every beach. For example, all-nude sunbathing raises nary an eyebrow in St. Barths , whereas Bahamians may frown on tourists wearing a bikini anywhere other than the beach. Nude beaches can be a great way to relax, but as with any trip to a new environment or community, its always best to be culturally sensitive.
Keep your clothes on. In many places, public nudity is a serious crime that could lead to a fine or worse. Naturist resorts cater to completely clothing-free vacation seekers, so if you want to go all in or off , consider these options rather than a one-time visit to a nude beach. Rules at each of these resorts differ, and many are adults-only. Obviously, you will be required to look at your fellow sunbathers at some point, whether greeting them or fetching their Frisbee from your beach towel.

Instead, naturists tend to stick to specifically designated areas where nudism is clearly encouraged, including the wealth of nude beaches that dot Spain's stunning coastline.
