Bay of Plenty Sun Camp in New Zealand

Review: Bay of Plenty Sun Camp in New Zealand

It’s fair to say that naturism in New Zealand has surprised us. Not just the possibilities, the abundance of unofficial nude beaches and the more than 20 naturist clubs spread around the country. But also the variation in what’s on offer. Some clubs are located in suburbia while others are in the middle of nature. Some are on quite large domains, while others are cosy with just some handsful of campsites. Like the Bay of … Read more

Katikati Naturist Park in Bay of Plenty, New Zealand

Review: Katikati Naturist Park in Bay of Plenty, New Zealand

Naturism in New Zealand is very hierarchically organised, with a national federation at the top of the pyramid and in the lower layer, clubs spread around the country. But there are exceptions, in the Bay of Plenty region we headed to one of the very few commercial naturist resorts in New Zealand. How to get to Katikati Naturist Park Katikati Naturist Park is named after the town where it is located, in the northeast of … Read more

Auckland Outdoor Naturist Club in Auckland, New Zealand

Review: Auckland Outdoor Naturist Club in Auckland, New Zealand

Before we went to the Auckland Outdoor Naturist Club, AONC in short, we visited our first nude beach in New Zealand. This wasn’t a huge success. Ladies Bay was an okay beach, if it had been in another country we might have even called it “a nice beach”. But this is New Zealand… Come on, we’ve watched enough National Geographic Channel to know what this country is supposed to have to offer.   What worried … Read more

Kiata Naturist Resort in Sydney, Australia

Review: Kiata Naturist Resort in Sydney, Australia

City naturist resorts can be a hit or miss. Some are among the best in the country, benefiting from fresh ideas and modern thinking that typically comes from a city rather than from the countryside. But there are also those that get lazy. When millions of people are within easy driving distance, a flow of new visitors can be rather a mathematical thing than that it says something about the resort.   We were wondering … Read more

Twin Falls Naturist Retreat in NSW, Australia

Review: Twin Falls Naturist Retreat in NSW, Australia

Something we quickly learned from travelling in Australia is that this is a country of extremes and contrasts. We had seen cold and rain and hot and sunny, sometimes all in one day. We left the dry outback behind us for a short drive down the coast. Well, that’s short by Australian standards, eventually it would take us several days and more than 1000 kilometres before we got to our next destination. Hidden in a … Read more

Nude Beaches of Sydney, Australia

The Nude Beaches of Sydney, Australia Explained

Sydney has three official nude beaches, and if that isn’t choice enough for you, there are three more that are not officially recognised but nude nonetheless, and then there are another two official nude beaches at about an hour’s drive from the city. Are you confused? Well, we were when we first tried to create our naked itinerary. So for everyone’s convenience, here’s a map: That is a lot of nude beaches for one city. … Read more

Bare Camp in Queensland, Australia

Review: Bare Camp in Queensland, Australia

The Australian outback is a rough place. At times it almost seemed apocalyptic. When it warms up, it gets really hot. When there’s a storm, there’s thunder and lightning anywhere. The wind seems to come out of nowhere and leaves just like that. Yet, it also has its charm. The idea of going to rough wilderness tickled our sense of adventure. But we knew that as ignorant Belgians we probably would never survive. So we … Read more

Get Naked Australia: Sydney Harbour Cruise

How to Organise a Controversial Naked Event

Around 10 am, the first guests start arriving. Some still looking sleepy, recovering from yesterday’s night out, others already enjoying their first beer of the day. Most are roughly between the ages of 25 and 50. An Uber arrives to drop off the DJ. Several days earlier, she was still spinning records in Ibiza, but she seemed to have recovered surprisingly well from the jetlag. Or she just got very good at hiding it.   … Read more

The year we've been Everywhere. Kinda.

The year we’ve been Everywhere. Kinda.

Some blog posts almost write themselves. As soon as one or two words appear on the screen, full sentences seem to come out of nowhere and before we know it, we’ve shared yet another idea, vision, or experience with you. This is not such a blog post. Several times during the last week we sat down and tried to get this going, but the sentences did not come. A pity, because it would have avoided … Read more

The nude beaches of Saint Martin

The Nude Beaches of Saint Martin

We went to every nude beach in Saint Martin, we think… It kinda depends on how you look at it. Saint Martin is home to Orient Beach, one of the few official nude beaches in the Caribbean. This is also the only official nude beach on the island, so technically speaking, just setting foot on Orient Beach would be sufficient to claim that we’ve been to every nude beach on Saint Martin.     But … Read more
