Skinny Dipping

British newspaper The Daily Telegraph had a list of the 10 best places to go skinny dipping yesterday. Each one illustrated by one picture.
If you judged the places by the pictures, then some of them I would definitely stay away from. Any of them having ice in the same place as a nude swimmer for example. I am much too afraid of the cold to even consider taking off my clothes in such a polar environment.
Then there is Paradise and Super Paradise Beach on the Greek island of Mykonos. Famous the world over for its nude beach. But that is just the problem. When you achieve that kind of fame, the emphasis changes from enjoying nude sunbathing to viewing nude sunbathing. In other words, you get more and more gawkers and voyeurs, and the real naturists start leaving in droves. The picture on the site showed a very crowded beach with more men in shorts than naked people. That's always the sign of a problem.
So I would go for the opposite. The first picture is the most beautiful. A quiet beach on the Spanish Balearic island of Formentera, no crowds, just real naturists. Exactly my kind of place. Or maybe just add to that a naturist hotel where I can sit on the balcony naked and write on my laptop at the same time. Gorgeous. I want to start packing my bags right now.
