So there are thousands of backpacker hostels in the world and there are many FKK beaches, resorts, and other accommodations designed for nudists in the world.

But has anyone yet opened a hostel for nudists anywhere?

The Gazebo Golden Bay Backpackers in Takaka, New Zealand is clothing-optional, open December through March each year. Close to the nude beaches and a promoter of the local Naked Bike Ride. Quote: All levels of dress are acceptable.


We have a location but not registered officially. Usually by invitation only as only want genuine nudists. We are in Western Australia. Genuine nudist backpackers can contact us via BarelyBackpacking@hotmail.com.

We do not tolerate drugs, we are not swingers, we are a family, our standing in the community is important and we don't want that jeopardised.


No, there are no nudist hostels, but [Yes @user10134 has pointed to a clothes optional hostel] you can easily find some nudist campsites in Europe or even some nudist hotels. Note that some naturist campsites only allow you to camp there if you are a couple to prevent voyeurs.

    Hehe @lejohn that's why it might not work in the US. But maybe in Europe or Thailand or Mexico somewhere... (-: Dec 30 '11 at 13:00

    Social nudity is about stuff including body acceptance, not about perving at each others' bums by the way. So the ages and attractiveness of guests shouldn't be a factor at all. Jan 5 '12 at 14:07
