3. Maslin Nude Beach Olympics
Athletes celebrate Australia Day (usually around Jan. 25) by showing off their prowess in competitions such as discus throwing and a three-legged race. No comment.
4. NAKUKYMPPI 2010
Finns are blasé about nudity. The proof? In this annual event (just held on June 18), participants run or walk a 10-kilometre route. Suggested attire: shoes, socks and hat. Packing light should be easy.
5. Wreck Beach
Soak up the sun at one of the largest nude beaches (more than eight kilometres long) in the world. Each year, more than half a million spectators come to enjoy the scenery, which also includes an avocado-green forest and cliffs the colour of vanilla ice cream.
6. Englischer Garten
Have lunch in the Schonfeld meadow portion of this urban park and nude sunbathe alongside free spirits and German businessmen (suits in a pile), as they've been doing since the '60s.
7. Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park
Take the plunge at the isolated backcountry campsite that was voted the best place to skinny dip in the United States.
