The skinny on the increasing popularity of nude resorts
In a recent online survey conducted by TripAdvisor, about half of the 22,091 travelers interviewed said that they wouldn't be shy about stripping off their swimsuits at the beach. This compared to about 31% of vacationers who said last year that they would visit a nude beach.
"Travelers indicate in their reviews that the real appeal of nude beaches has nothing to do with flaunting one's flesh or checking out the neighboring eye candy," said Amelie Hurst, a TripAdvisor spokeswoman. "Rather the spaces often benefit from a lack of crowds and beautiful settings that can be enjoyed by any demographic."
