Clothing optional: Although still taboo in many places, casting aside your clothes at the shore has become a customary practice around the world in recent times. See 15 beaches to go and bare it all.
Black's Beach, La Jolla, California: Located beneath the 100-meter-high cliffs of Torrey Pines, this secluded section of beach was the first legal nude beach in the United States.
Little Palm Beach, Waiheke Island, New Zealand: Although nude bathing is technically allowed on any beach, there are some designated clothing-optional locations. Reaching Little Palm Beach entails a 40--60-minute ferry ride from Auckland, a taxi or rideshare to the island's north shore, and then a short downhill hike.
Lady Bay Beach, Sydney, Australia: Perched inside the South Head of Sydney Harbour, this small and narrow beach, which was first granted legal status in 1976, is incredibly secluded considering its city location.
