My First Time at a Nude Beach on Vacation

First Timers guide to nude beaches around the world

I recall my first journey to a nude sandy shore. I was dwelling in Auckland, New Zealand at the time and decided to go for a run along the beachfront of St. Helier’s Bay. Having only been in New Zealand for a few weeks at that point, my sense of exploration was strong. I discovered myself roaming about at every corner in seek of something new to do.

On my run, I came across a signal  that read “Ladies Bay.” That rang out like my kind of location, and the maze of steps and ramps that hugged the cliff looked intriguing to me. So I strolled down and I discovered myself on a attractive little slice of isolated sandy shore. Clear waters, views of Rangitoto in the distance, seashells entwined with sand pebbles, palm trees.  Not a single soul was on the beach apart from myself, so I claimed this as my new personal haven and personal sandy shore.

A few weeks later, the sun was shining a little more powerful and my pasty skin was pleading for a beach day. I packed my magazines, sunscreen, midday meal and towel and made the trek over to my sanctuary. I made my way down the staircase and selected a spot on the beach and settled into the sand. I heard a rustle in the bushes behind me and chalked it up to some sort of beach animal and put on my headphones on and continued to relax.

I eventually dosed off and I was awoken by some rustling in the bushes behind me.  I stood up and took a good look over the bushes only to discove a huddle of people sunbathing together.  They were an elderly bunch but their skin was beautifully bronzed, and I was so envious. That is until one of them stood up and headed towards the water.  The elderly man was totally NUDE!  I was in total shock.

At first I considered that this man’s age may have been the reason for him ignoring his bathing trunks but then I recognized that I was the only one on the beach overdressed. My personal little isolated beach quickly turned into a gathering of human genitalia.

As I watched the parade of tourist sunbathing, I realized that they seemed quite free and easy going.  There was something so liberating about walking around the nude.  After all this was a vacation, who cares?  My started to feel more at ease, even comfortable with this lifestyle and I finally decided to try it.  Since that day every country I visit I always seek out these beaches.

For all the first timers out there who desire to proceed to a nude beach (intentionally), there are a couple of things that you can do before-hand to arrange yourself for this open know-how.

Do your research. If full nudity is a bit threatening for you, find a beach that is topless only. Sure, the women are the only ones who are revealing more than usual, but it is a good first step if you want to ease yourself into it.   Also, some nudist sandy shores only permit nudity in certain area. This can help you avoid inappropriately showing it all to the little children that may be around.

Bring sunglasses, particularly dark ones. One time I went to a nude beach with a friend who could not stop staring! Sunglasses will help you to stare incognito if you don’t desire every person knowing you can’t stop looking at their family jewels. Sunscreen is also absolutely vital. We are trying to eliminate tan lines, not paint our privates bright pink.

Arrange yourself for the experience. Make sure you groom your privates by shaving or waxing.  This is a good idea for you if you plan on proceeding au naturel. Just be sure to allow a day or two in between ridding yourself of body hair and jumping into the salt water. You know how new cuts bite in the ocean? Well, identical proceeds for freshly cut off or waxed body parts. Ouch.

As with any position, if you ever seem uncomfortable, especially in a foreign place, eliminate yourself from the natural environment. Nude beaches are adequately monitored and protected for the most part, but it is habitually wise to be cognizant of your enclosures.
