It's the middle of summer in Australia and millions of people are flocking to the beaches every single day of the week! And sure, the beach is awesome. Nothing beats a bit of sun, sand and salt water. You can head down to Bondi with the other 40,000 daily visitors to catch some rays, check out the local talent and if your lucky enough, get caught in a rip and catch a jet ski ride back to shore with one of the famous life guards. Which is a pretty damn good day out if you're into that kind of thing.
However, for the more adventurous types there is another option, something a little more outside the norm and a sure fire guarantee to get you right outside of your comfort zone... Nudist Beaches.
Humans all share one common trait, and that trait is nudity. We are all naked, all of the time. Although we cover our naked bodies in clothing because it makes us feel more comfortable. And in most cases if we didn't, we would probably be spending the night in lock up... Yet, there is something pretty special about stripping down and wearing that birthday suit you've been keeping hidden away from the public all of these years. And what better place to do it than on the beach where you can frolic in the water and bathe in the warm sun to even out those tan lines.
So the next sunny Sunday when you're heading down to the same old beach you've visited time and time again, consider getting nude and rude instead. It could change your life forever!
