Nude Beach Resorts: 13 All-Inclusive Vacation Spots For 2024

There is something liberating about wandering around without clothing, as light and free as the day we were born. Nudity, or as it's often referred to these days, naturism, has a long history. More than 2,000 years ago, athletes in Greece would compete while in the buff, and even today, some Indian monks practice nudity as part of their faith. For some travelers on vacation, the idea of taking it all off represents a real escape, a literal shedding of the confines of daily life, and the experience can be rejuvenating and energizing. 

Many properties around the globe welcome guests who feel the need to be freed from clothes, and some put on special events that help them let go and get wild. Based on our knowledge of all-inclusive resorts where clothes are just an unnecessary encumbrance and looking at travel blogs, we determined our selections. The properties on this list, many of them easy to reach via a short flight from the United States, allow travelers to shed their inhibitions along with their swimwear.

Hedonism II - Negril, Jamaica

Hedonism II has been referenced in shows like Workaholics, The Office and Tosh.0. It's gained notoriety for a few reasons; here's why.

This 280-key resort offers regular rooms and suites, as the latter includes a private terrace with a beach or jungle view, a hot tub, a TV and a Euro-style hot-tub shower or rain shower. Clothing is optional on the resort's "prude" side, and there is also a completely nude side of the property.

In total, there are five restaurants (all closed on Fridays), featuring Japanese Teppanyaki-style cuisines, Jamaican food, pasta, a buffet and classic grilled options. Hedonism II provides opportunities for water sports, too, giving guests the chance to embark on a catamaran cruise, go scuba diving, relax in a spa, enjoy a tour and drink at Harry's Wine Bar.

For more adventurous nights, check out the Romping Shop Playroom. Named after a popular Jamaican Dancehall song, the playroom is an opportunity to get intimate at Hedonism II. Couples and single women are welcomed, as single men are invite-only.

Popa Paradise Beach Resort - Punta Laurel, Panama

An archipelago in the northwest of Panama, Bocas del Toro is a gorgeous chain of islands, easily reached by plane from Panama City in less than an hour. It's a realm of striking beaches, mangroves, mountains, surf-primed waves, and vibrant reefs. Popa Paradise Beach Resort, where rates include all three meals, makes the most of the natural wonder. Guests will encounter green hills, a stretch of beach with soft sand, and towering trees.

The water is calm thanks to the reef just offshore, and snorkelers will likely see rays and small reef sharks. Popa Paradise Beach Resort is small, with only nine casitas, rooms in a lodge building, and a few suites. Ocean views come with many of them, though the casitas are the most interesting — free-standing small homes with sturdy wood furnishings and terraces that look out over the jungle or the water. While naturism isn't allowed throughout the property, guests can let it all hang out at the freshwater swimming pool and the private beach.

Bahia Principe Grand Jamaica - Runaway Bay, Jamaica

At the long stretch of beach at this property on the central north coast of Jamaica, green turtles make nests on the shore where they lay their eggs. Guests can enjoy the beach from the comfort of loungers, under umbrellas, or at the beachfront bar. For nudists, a special section of the beach is set aside for sunning in the buff. Visitors can take to the water for a leisurely, relaxing swim or on a kayak or jet ski. Those certified to dive might plunge below the surface during a scuba excursion.

All accommodations are spacious, with suites with four-poster beds and terraces. Some look onto the sea or feature a tub with massaging jets. Dining ranges from a few spots that offer a selection of international dishes to specialty boîtes that serve Italian, Japanese, grilled fare, and avant-garde cuisine.

In addition to the beach, the island features a pool with a swim-up bar, a Thai restaurant, and cabanas that feel like they have been lifted from a beach resort in Bali.

Some rooms at Sandals Royal Caribbean come with butler service, and for guests in search of a wow factor, the over-water villas are a slice of paradise (those at the end are arrayed in the shape of a heart). The experience at the resort is both local and international, with high tea and a recreation of a traditional British pub, Italian and Indian restaurants, alongside Caribbean eateries — there's a place to sample jerk food.

There's also plenty of unbridled fun at Couples Negril, especially dancing. At the weekly beach bonfire on Monday nights, a musician belts out live tunes while dance classes teach guests the finesse required to move to soca, salsa, reggae, and more. Beyond the property, there are lots of things to do. Visitors can glimpse life in Jamaica through organized excursions, such as trips to craft markets or the chance to glide over the crystal shallows on a glass-bottom boat.

How we chose the all-inclusive nude beach resorts

There are several resorts around the world where travelers who like to bare it all can do so without any fear of getting in trouble with security or other guests. Some are set up like traditional hotels, where food, drink, and activities come with an extra charge. Those that feature in this story are all-inclusive, so guests can eschew the need to carry a purse or wallet or pore over a bill to check off every item. We pulled on our knowledge of all-inclusive resorts where wearing clothes is a matter of personal choice and also researched travel blogs to narrow down the selection. We excluded properties that have no problem with guests letting it all hang out but aren't all-inclusive.
