Spend a minute on the Internet and you’ll see endless articles about travelers misbehaving. Some vacationers are mischievous in the air, while others are devilish at check-in, but a new survey of MissTravel members confirms travelers have taken naughty to the next level by getting caught skinny dipping.
MissTravel.com conducted a two-part survey to determine just how many singles had skinny dipped on vacation and then gotten caught. Results revealed 71 percent of travelers have taken a nude plunge, while nearly half of those had been caught doing so.
Orlando Bloom was recently spotted swimming sans-swimwear in Italy, while Justin Bieber was caught in cold water (literally!) when he was paparazzied nude in Hawaii with Sahara Ray.
Although the best skinny dipping moments happen within the heat of the moment, there are a few sure-fire spots to strip down and become one with the water.
Black’s Beach is a secluded beach in La Jolla, San Diego. This beach is considered to be one of the largest nude beaches in the world, which makes it popular among nudists – although reviews say the beach is relatively isolated and serene.
Beach goers can’t be totally nude at Lummus Park in South Beach, Miami, however, this may be the perfect place for women looking to lose their tops. This party atmosphere mixed with European tourists has brought topless tanning into vogue.
Travelers will have to wait until the wee hours of the night to sneak onto the shores of Lake Michigan at Oak Street Beach in Chicago as nudity is prohibited on all Chicagoland beaches. Rumor has it that Oak Street hosted “nude night swimming” in the summer until 1995, thus making it the perfect place to test the waters and strip down!
Gunnison Beach is the only clothing optional beach within proximity to New York City. Just a 45 minute ferry ride from NYC, Gunnison offers a food truck and even permits alcohol on the beach…because sometimes it takes a little liquid courage to get comfortable with your bad (very good) self!
