CNN — Bathing naked isn't just for babies. While the brave might whip off their underwear for an impromptu dip whenever the chance arises during our travels , some of us need more reassurance. That's why we've collated these 19 destinations where you can swim the way nature intended, confident that you won't attract too much attention. Be sure to check prices of hotels -- some may strip your wallet pretty fast! These villas -- 83 in total -- come equipped with a private courtyard featuring a sunken pool and complete seclusion, which means you can swim naked without fear of offending guests or staff. While this kind of skinny dipping lacks the excitement and back-to-nature feel of taking a dip in the wild, there are benefits -- including a hot tub for two, an outdoor shower and a fully stocked minibar within arm's reach.
North East Skinny Dip: Swimmers brave sea for charity
North East Skinny Dip: Swimmers brave sea for charity - BBC News
So I had mixed reactions to the news that police in Northern Ireland have threatened two young men with a criminal record , and the possibility of being put on the sex offenders register, for going skinny dipping in Belfast Lough last week. Perhaps these two men had been cavorting about on a busy beach strutting their stuff in front of everyone, petting each other or even propositioning people? That kind of behaviour is at best offputting, and at worst downright offensive and intimidating. There were other people on the beach, including picnicking families, but it was not packed, and they were mainly in the water, with their nether regions hidden. This kind of behaviour is far more acceptable, and if it might be deemed a little insensitive, it is certainly not illegal. Moreover, swimming naked is a wonderful feeling, the ultimate form of immersion in nature and something everyone should try, at least once in their lifetime, if not every summer.
