Have you ever been to a naked beach? A must try for everyone.
In Thailand it is illegal to be naked in public. You can get deported for this. I have heard a story about a couple swimming naked in a river in Pai, who got deported for this.
There is, however, a naked beach in Koh Phangan where you can be naked! I am not sure how legal it is, but the beach is chill, and everyone just suntans naked, swims naked and no one feels awkward. The location is here.
Since I am staying right next to the naked beach, I had to go check it out. And I also challenged my friend, who felt shy in the beginning.
How does it feel to be naked on the beach?
It is one of the most natural feelings, humans were not born wearing clothes. One can get an even suntan, and nothing is on your way when you are swimming.
The people who come here are nice, friendly and do not stare. Some practise yoga, others play on musical instruments, some come with kids. Most of the people are suntanning, reading books and enjoying the sun, and they do not care much to see you naked, so no need to be shy.
My friend’s comment: “In the beginning I felt shy, and then you forced me, so I had no choice but to sit and enjoy. It was going out of my comfort zone. Swimming felt good, one can swim faster, and the feeling of being in the water completely naked is different, but I was afraid of the jellyfish ;).”
No matter if you are shy and it will help you expand your comfort zone, or you are absolutely confident, and need a bite of freedom, the naked beach in Koh Phangan is recommended in any case. Enjoy and let us know how it felt!
