Names the Top 10 Places to Get Naked

1. Naked Cycling: World Naked Bike Ride, next main ride 12 March 2011 worldwide

Held annually since 2004 in cities around the world, people ride bikes naked to celebrate cycling and the human body. But it’s not just about baring your bod; the ride demonstrates the vulnerability of cyclists on the road and is a protest against car culture. Ride proud, ride safely... Ride on!

2. Naked Hot Springs Bathing: Ooedo-Onsen-Monogatari in Tokyo, Japan

Ooedo-Onsen-Monogatari, Tokyo’s onsen theme park, is located in the popular Daiba area. Foreigners are able to strip off at this bathhouse and experience the therapeutic Japanese tradition of soaking in onsen (natural, mineral-rich hot springs) in which most Japanese immerse themselves. When walking around, cover your private parts with the tiny towels provided and leave your snorkel at home!

3. Naked Spa Treatments for Singles and Couples: Ayana Resort Bali and Spa, Indonesia

Awaken your senses to opulent surrounds and drift into a wonderland of quintessential healing and indulgent therapies at Ayana Resort Bali and Spa, a spa destination marked by worldly distinction.

4. Naked Sauna: Kotiharjun Sauna, in Kallio, Helsinki, Finland

Kotiharjun Sauna, in Kallio, is Helsinki's only remaining public wood-burning sauna and dates back to 1928. Enjoy the mellow heat of the traditional sauna, a real Finnish experience where you can also get a scrub-down and massage. There are separate saunas for men and women – the rule in Finnish public saunas.

5. Naked Art Festival: World Bodypainting Festival 27 June to 3 July 2011, Portschach am Worthersee, Austria

Held annually since 1998, the World Bodypainting Festival is the biggest art event in the bodypainting theme. Imagine a painter who can create an image from an idea in the fullness of
colour, design and expression, and then imagine this artist asking their canvas to sing, dance or scream. Whilst clothing is required to attend the event, you can be one of about 30,000 visitors to admire the wonderful work of the participants.

6. Naked City: Cap d'Agde, France

Want to go to the bank naked? How about a naked visit to the post office or launderette? Fancy a nude stroll along a Mediterranean beach? Or even nip into the shops for some meat and potatoes, in Cap d'Agde people will do it starkers. When in France, visit the coast town of Cap d'Agde, the world's capital of naturism where the entire town is clothing-optional. Book early if you are traveling in summer as the population peaks to more than 40,000 when the summer-time crowd flocks here.

7. Naked Park: Schönfeldwiese in Englischer Garten, Munich, Germany

The sprawling Englischer Garten is among Europe's biggest city parks covering an area of 3.7 square kilometres - bigger than London's Hyde Park and New York's Central Park and a favorite playground for locals and visitors alike. Within the Schönfeldwiese part of the Englischer Gartens, nude sunbathing has been permitted since the 1960s, something which many Germans (and Europeans) practice – so feel free to get into your birthday suit and soak up the sun!

8. Naked Beach: Haulover Beach, Miami Beach, Florida

Haulover Beach is one of very few government-sanctioned clothing-optional beaches in the United States. Nestled between the Intercoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean, it has pristine white sand shores and is ideal for surfing as well as swimming. Although Haulover Nude Beach is only a small portion of the larger Haulover Beach Park, approximately 75% of visitors use the nude beach area, so get in the buff and join the crowd!

9. Naked Cruise: eWaterways Naturist Cruise Embarking 11 June 2011 Split, Croatia

10. Naked Cultural Event: Burning Man, 29 August to 5 September 2011, Black Rock Desert, Nevada, US
