Survey: More travelers willing to bare all on 'nakations' USA Today August 12, 2010
According to a recent unscientific TripAdvisor survey, there is one thing staying home more during vacations: clothing.
The online travel community asked 22,091 of its U.S. readers if they would bare all at the beach and 48% said yes. This is up from last year's nude beach survey, in which 31% of respondents said they would "love to see and be seen" at a clothing-optional destination.
"Travelers indicate in their reviews that the real appeal of nude beaches has nothing to do with flaunting one's flesh or checking out the neighboring eye candy," said Amelie Hurst, a TripAdvisor spokeswoman. "Rather the spaces often benefit from a lack of crowds and beautiful settings that can be enjoyed by any demographic."
