Given the right mix of sun, sand and solitude, impromptu skinny-dipping can happen (and does) most anywhere in the Caribbean.

Given the right mix of sun, sand and solitude, impromptu skinny-dipping can happen (and does) most anywhere in the Caribbean.

But going full monty on a whim can be a dicey proposition in these parts. Most Caribbean islands are devotedly conservative, and public nudity is frowned upon – if not downright illegal. Fortunately, however, textile-averse travelers have a few options. In addition to a variety of clothing-optional resorts, the region has a handful of exquisite public beaches where the uninhibited can freely – and lawfully – pursue the perfect tan.

On the French side (naturally — although the Dutch side has the bare-buns Cupecoy Beach), Orient is the Caribbean island’s premier place to sunbathe in the nude.

Très belle and an easy hop from capital city Gustavia. The more intrepid nudist may want to trek to harder-to-reach Anse du Gouverneur.

The island’s only nude beach is a little charmer, the last of a string of four white-sand crescents on the west coast, near the Hawksbill Hotel.

Bikini tops routinely fly on Negril’s hippie haven, but the true nudist should aim for this nearby islet (named for the bird, not the body part).

Narrow and tough to find but popular nonetheless, this beach claims to be the first legally designated nude beach in the Western Hemisphere.
