There are many reasons why you might want to forego your bikini or swimsuit, from topless sunbathing to complete nudity while enjoying the sun. There are plenty of reasons why you might enjoy going to a beach in the buff, whether it’s to avoid tan lines, replenish your vitamin D levels, cool off with a swim, or simply try something different. Here are the best European beaches in the world for nude sunbathing, according to Pour Moi.

Red Beach, Santorini, Greece

This secluded beach is perfect for those seeking a bit of solitude while sunbathing topless or fully nude. The surreal red lava cliffs are a unique feature of the beach and provide shelter as you soak up the sun. There are also nearby dining establishments where you can enjoy a meal while taking a break from the sun’s rays.

Patara Beach, Turkey

The longest beach on the Turkish Riviera, with over 18 kilometers of beautiful soft sand and enchanting water to cool off in, this beach offers a wonderful retreat for those looking to savor a taste of paradise. The beach is also home to a range of activities for visitors, from horse safaris to surfing, so there’s plenty to keep you entertained if you need a break from sunbathing.

Playa de los Muertos, Almeria, Spain

Located in the Levante region, it is known as the “gateway” to the Cabo de Gata-Nijar Natural Park, which features some of the best nudist beaches in Spain. With its attractive pearly sand and beautiful blue water, it is truly a stunning place to soak up the sun (clothed or not). Although it may not be the easiest beach to access, it remains one of the most beautiful beaches around, making it worth the effort.

Vakarbulli Beach, Riga, Latvia

Vakarbulli Beach, one of the most popular beaches in Riga, has golden sand and calm waters, as well as excellent bars and restaurants. To the right of the beach, you’ll find a lovely nudist area where you can feel comfortable trying topless or fully nude sunbathing.

Porto Ferro Beach, Sardinia, Italy

Located in the northwest of the island of Sardinia, Porto Ferro Beach has two small bays that are designated nudist areas, where you can freely sunbathe in the buff. With its turquoise sea and high-quality sandy shores, the beach exudes a peaceful yet wild atmosphere.

Wannsee Beach, Berlin, Germany

The beach along Berlin’s Wannsee Lake is the perfect place to escape the city for a few hours. Opened in 1907, the beach stretches an impressive 1,275 meters and is one of the largest inland beaches in Europe. While the beach accommodates everyone, those looking to ditch their swimwear should turn right to the designated nudist area.

Kyiv Beach, Ukraine

Even in the heart of the capital, there is a place where people are free from stereotypes and clothing. On Trukhaniv Island, you’ll find one of Ukraine’s most famous and expansive nude beaches. To visit this spot, head to the southern part of the island. Most visitors to the beach are dedicated naturists, but you’ll also encounter those who prefer to keep their swimwear on. The beach is also a favorite spot for tantric enthusiasts who come here to practice yoga and learn new asanas. Additionally, it offers incredible views of the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra. Be prepared that the shoreline may not be the cleanest, but you can contribute to the environment by joining your naked friends
