England's most popular naturist beach is a sandy half-mile stretch in the middle of the appropriately named Studland Bay, looking out over the English Channel. Thousands of bare bathers gather here in a corner of England that feels forever European – at least when the sun is shining – during summer weekends and bank holidays. The gently shelving waters offer an invigorating place for nude bathing, while the soft sand is ideal for taking a peaceful stroll in your birthday suit. The National Trust, custodian of the U.K.'s unspoiled landscapes, owns this section of coast and works hard to keep the setting and the beach atmosphere as natural as possible.
