Almost everyone has that one experience where you went skinny-dipping, and it felt liberating. The fact that you’ll maybe do it again or have done it many times afterwards, is not so weird. People are becoming more comfortable and free with their bodies.
It also seems that the taboo of the naked body is breaking, while a trend is rising. If you are a fan of the birthday suit and want to support the body positivity movement, nakation could be the “off the beaten path” experience you need to try.
For some years now, there has been a lot of talk about sustainability, being more in sync with nature and yourself, and stopping body shaming. Nakation touches these concerns and is growing in popularity.
It goes to say that nude vacations increase the focus on sustainability. When you don’t have to stress about which clothes and bathing suits you need to buy for your summer wardrobe, you don’t contribute to the fast fashion industry and carbon emission.
Nude vacation is about connecting with nature and yourself, which can be through resort retreats, cruises, spas, yoga, or hikes. There are many places around the world where you can enjoy being nude. (Psst, we’ll reveal some of these places in an upcoming blogpost. So subscribe to our newsletter so you can be the first to read it)
The appeal of going on a Nakation relates to the need for “tech-detoxing” and disconnecting from our frenetic modern lifestyle. We have all felt at some point that digitalization has taken over and our phones control our everyday.
So, if you strip down, you can’t bring your phone – because you don’t have a pocket to place it in, right?
Then you will have time to be in the moment with your travel companion. You will also have time to connect with the surroundings.
It adds to body-positivity when you see so many people of all shapes and sizes gathered at the same place to embrace nudity. And it also supports the mindset that nudity doesn’t have to be sexualized. It becomes normalized very fast and nude vacation aims to be tasteful.
There are no stereotypes
You maybe think people who go on these trips are stereotypes, but you’re wrong! You’ll actually meet folks who represent a wide variety of careers, countries, ages, and socioeconomic levels. You’ll meet people that typically are college educated and who love being active and enjoying the outdoors. So you don’t have to be afraid of standing out from the crowd.
If the thought of being naked the entire vacation is too daring, there are places where it’s clothing-optional. This means, you decide how naked you want to be. You can also start out with a public nude beach. Especially in Europe, there are many public nude beaches where you can practice being nude.
Just make sure it is nudist-friendly!
Resorts - just for nudist
Nudist resorts and facilities are a multi-billion-dollar industry that has a lot to offer, and there are many reasons to go on nakation. We have researched a lot about these nudist resorts, and have selected the very best nakation resorts for our next inspirational trip list. Does Mexico, Greece or Jamaica sound appealing to you? It does to me! And the best part about these resorts are the privacy that you’ll get (and the beaches like on the picture above, of course)

If you are in need of a new experience or a spiritual journey to connect with yourself and nature, Nakation might be the answer for you. Nevertheless, it would provide you with a cool story to tell about when you get back home.

Being naked improves your self-esteem.
You will get a perfect tan – an all-over tan!
It’s supporting body-positivity.
It’s money-saving when you need minimal luggage.
It’s environmentally friendly.
So, are you going to be “nude” or a “prude” on your next vacation? 😉
