By deTraci Regula. The sensuous beauty of the Greek Islands inspires many visitors to explore nude sunbathing for the first time, especially at world-renowned naturist-friendly beaches on Mykonos. However, if you're a novice at being naked in public, you may need a little help to get you started.

If you're planning a trip to Greece and want to experience a nude beach, there are a few important etiquette guidelines and tips to keep in mind to make sure you have a fun, safe trip to a naturist destination.

My extended family has its own nudist contingent — something we always regarded as an oddity when I was growing up, until I actually grew up and realised it was perfectly normal. So when we were looking around for things to do on our recent visit to Swanage, in Dorset, it seemed like an obvious choice. The entire beach is two and a half miles long, but the nudist bit takes up less than half of that. You also have to walk to it — the car park is some distance from the naturist section, which is clearly marked by signs. When we eventually arrive, the place is quiet.
How often do you just hang out naked? Maybe padding around your flat in the nude is normal to you, a pro in spending time in your own skin. Although Britain might not be the first place you think of for a beach holiday, the UK is actually home to a wealth of sandy dunes and dramatic coastlines that would put the Maldives to shame well, kind of.
