In the country that made the birthday suit de rigueur, it is no surprise to find stylish nude beach resorts adorning a long, sunny coastline. Arnaoutchot's Beach and the nearby naturist resort on France's Atlantic coast offer elegant golden sands and back-to-nature living. Lifeguards keep an eye on swimmers and surfers in the invigorating waves during the summer months. Camp nude under the scented pine trees, plunge into the rolling surf with hundreds of bare bathers, then take a stroll for miles in splendid isolation along the undeveloped coastline to the north.
