Many of the islands also offer a series of dreamy gay beaches that facilitate the perfect trinity of sun, sand, and boys. However, Mykonos is not only famous for this. The island also offers a load of idyllic beaches, many of which are gay.
The country is known for its clothing-optional bathing areas, although almost all of them are not official nude beaches. Mykonos, which was one of the first islands to be discovered by tourists, attracted hippies and naturists, and continues to be a favorite of those looking for a holiday in the sun au naturel. There are no official nude beaches, but a few do usually have a considerable number of nude sunbathers, usually concentrated on one side of the beach, away from the bars and sunbeds, and usually fewer in number during the most crowded days of July and August, especially on weekends.

If there's one problem with nude beaches, it's that you can't control who actually takes off their clothes. Also, sand gets everywhere. As we've already shared our favorite nude beaches in the US and then, again, in the Bay Area and outlined the rules of nudist resortshere's our list of the 15 most sizzling seaside spots around the globe to soak up the sun, au naturel.
People from all around the world are visiting Greece during the summer. The country has been graced with some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, which is one of the main reasons for its popularity. Red Beach, Crete : Crete ranks first in offering sandy beaches to those wishing to live outside the standardized moral rules of modern society.
This is less a guide and more the relating of my limited experience and knowledge of nude and topless beaches on Paros. Like so many other subjects involving social mores naturalism is constantly evolving. What I read before coming to Greece seven years ago no longer seems to be true.
Several years ago we used to go to Small Banana Beach in Skiathos, neighbouring island to Skopelos which was beautiful and often almost totally nudist, with a real mix of families and ages. They even had a female sun lounger attendant too, and a little beach bar. It would be a real shame if it was lost.
N aked people of varying ages and shapes sit conversing underneath shades made from white bed sheets and bamboo sticks, the only shelter from the heat. A dry wind sweeps across the beach, and the shades blow back and forth. An Australian man, wearing nothing but a sunhat, asks if anyone fancies a game of boccia, and immediately the most competitive Italian on the beach jumps up, excited at the prospect of winning the much-coveted prize: rice pudding. This is my fifth time to the small Greek island of Antiparos, neighbour to the more commercial and larger island of Paros.
By deTraci Regula. Some travelers to Greece want to bare it all. And rightfully so, as European countries are known for their scanty beach dress code.
Without a doubt, if you are a party animal, the best island for you is Mykonos. A favourite among socialites and jetsetters, the island that never sleeps boasts wild and we do mean wild all-day beach parties, a wealth of nightclubs and bars plus a vibrant LGBTQ scene. Spend the day relaxing on the beach, cocktail in hand, and the night dancing to the best DJ sets until sunrise. The only downfall is your wallet may return home empty and the first day back at work will be horrible.
