Have you ever seen someone walking the street wearing nude colored clothing and think, "Oh my goodness! Is he or she naked?" More times than not, the person is not actually naked. (Hopefully)
However, when visiting certain beaches around the world, without research, you will be surprised at how many of these beaches belong to nudist resorts!
What is so cool about being naked and laying on the beach?
Of course, the full body tan would look AMAZING, and being naked is rather comfortable, but what if sand gets in places where it is not welcomed? (if you know what I mean) Is it worth it?

For that, they get a lot of respect!
