Fancy a Skinny Dip?

The best skinny dipping spots

Australia is home to seven of the World’s Best Skinny Dipping Spots, according to a new study.

To celebrate all things summer, the dating reviews website has ranked the top skinny dipping locations across the globe and found that Australia is home to some of the best.

Naughty but nice and you won’t see us baring all but if you feel like having a skinny dip some Australian swimming spots might be better than others for a  nudie swimming adventure.

To determine the best skinny dipping locations, MyDatingAdviser compared 100 nude beaches across the globe to determine the best locations to enjoy a skinny dip. They then ranked the top skinny dipping locations in Australia.

In this study, the beach quality, safety, weather, and lodging were taken into account. This was across 7 key metrics of skinny dipping friendliness including pollution, Blue Flag status, weather, air temperature, water temperature, safety, and hotel cost.

Using the data points, each location has been given a ‘Skinny DIpping Index Score’. This represents the quality of the skinny dipping experience that you could have at the location.

“There is nothing more liberating and joyful than a skinny dip. If you have the opportunity to visit a beautiful skinny dipping spot, then it’s worth stripping down, enjoying nature, and having a splash! Remember it’s not a big deal, and if the water is cold, even better,” she says.

Be respectful and have discretion.

Don’t forget sunscreen and bug spray.
