American exceptionalism may have gotten us to the moon and back, but when it comes to actually mooning each other you know, on the beach , we're not exactly world-beaters. Europe, by contrast, is in a completely different league when it comes to shoreline skinny-dipping. Maybe it's their permissive attitude toward public nudity. But which ones are really worth your vacation days? Once you do, however, you'll be greeted by a wealth of gorgeous beaches, each of which is nude-friendly. Playa de Ses Illetes is one of the most popular, and with its powdery white sand and azure waters, it's easy to see why.

Used to be a nudist beach, or clothing optional. Not any more. Each year is less and less nudism. I go there every year. Last year tourists were complaining about me being naked on the beach, and walking around naked. Yes I was the only one.

The social and health benefits of going nude have long been preached by proponents of naturism: uninhibited movement, stress reduction, respect and tolerance for others and increased confidence and self-acceptance. Brits are known for being uptight, but it might be time to change that. So why not give it a go?
