Papamoa Beach, Hawkes Bay
The nudist revolution! However, I find it both fascinating and awesome that more and more people are stripping for more and more reasons. So, ignoring the obvious naked activity that most people will happily adhere to and also the mass of naked, drunk backpackers, here are 5 things that you can do in New Zealand absolutely naked legally! Stay tuned and hopefully this event will go ahead this year too. If you like being naked, then head to the nude golf tournament and follow it up with the World Naked Bike Ride the weekend after. In the South Island, for a bit of skinny-dipping action try Waikuk Beach. So can you really bungy jump naked in New Zealand? Never in my lifetime would I do a bungy jump let alone strip off before I do it but I commend anyone who does and would be quite happy to watch. So why not give it a whirl?

However, thanks to its European influence, there are a surprising amount of clothing-optional beaches around the country. So if you want a break from social oppression or want to work on a line-free tan, then check out these best nudist beaches in New Zealand! Strictly speaking, nudity in public places is not illegal in New Zealand. However, these nudist beaches provide a place away from judgement and can feel less worried about taking your clothes off. Wellington might have a bit of a reputation for nippy cold winds, not ideal for taking your clothes off, but Breaker Bay is well sheltered from the prevailing winds. Be aware that the nudist section of the beach is on the main stretch of the beach. Otherwise, enjoy!
