Although the naturist movement has been slowly catching on in the Western world, it is still considered illegal in India. If caught baring it in public, you can be fined or punished for it. Yet nudists have discovered certain spots on the Indian coastline, which they frequent. As it were, India has a vast coastline and some of the best beaches in the world! It might surprise you that there are nude beaches in India, yet not everyone really knows about them. So if you have no problem baring it all in public, here are five places in India you can find like-minded people.
Paradise Beach, Gokarna
This nude beach is so hidden that you can only reach it by boat. Yet it’s not just a matter of making up your mind and you will be on a boat ride headed here. You’ll really need some first class convincing skills to have a boatman agree to bring you here. The reason for the hesitation of the boatmen are the hippies who like to sunbathe while baring it all. If ever you managed to reach here, be sure to find one of the most beautiful beaches with clear blue water and soft sand.
Om Beach, Gokarna
Om Beach is named so because of its shape that looks like the Hindu symbol. It is the second nude beach in Gokarna. This beach is quite popular and has water sports activities as well. However, it is also known as a nude beach where you can go to get a suntan. You will spot people lying on the buff, completely cloth-less.
Agatti Island, Lakshadweep
This beach is mainly known as a topless beach but be sure to find a number of total nudists. The beach has an untouched beauty that’s bound to take your breath away. It is complete with coconuts, palm trees, white sands, and coral reefs. If you are headed for a nude holiday here, you might require permission, so ensure you arrange for it.
Ozran Beach, Goa
For the smallest state in India, Goa has many hidden gems that a lot of people don’t know about. One such hidden treasure is the Ozran Beach, which is also known for its hippie nude crowd. It’s mostly thronged by foreigners, yet not easily accessible – you have to go over a hill to get here. Compared to the other beaches in Goa, it is relatively clean and more secluded. You can easily access it via Anjuna or Vagator.
Marari Beach, Kerala
If you are looking for beautiful backwaters, then come to Kerala. And not just that, it has a hidden nude beach too! You can relax and enjoy suntan on the sand in the buff on Merari Beach which is not just secluded but also appears untouched by the effects of pollution. This beach is so isolated that you cannot find many people around. Hence, you can go nude without raising eyebrows.
