A nude beach is a beach where people can swim (or do other activitiers) without having clothes on. These beaches usully come in different varietires:
- Beaches thatrequire people to be nude, if the weather permits it. People that are not nude, will not be tolerated. Usually, these beaches are part of a holiday resort, or a club.
- Beaches where people have the choice of going nude, or partly clothed. In Europe, this will apply to most beaches which are part of a commune, which designated the beach as a nude beach.
Young children running around naked are often tolerated, on most beaches in Europe.This applies to children aged to about 5 years old.
In many parts of Europe, nudity on the beach is often at least tolerated. The beaches where it is forbidden, and the ban is enacted are rare.
