So you decided to take off in order to take it all off.
And you have convinced your reluctant spouse or partner to join you on an au naturel vacation. Good for you. Now how should you proceed?
You simply could surf the websites of nudist or clothing optional resorts, and if they meet your needs, you can make your reservations right on-line. But what if you are still unsure? That's where the websites of travel agents that serve nudists or newbie nudists come into play. Having said that, not all of these websites are created equal.
As Godiva discussed before, the most dreadful website has the best URL, www.gonude.com. Unfortunately, Go Classy Tours of Florida, is still absolutely brain dead when it comes to the disservice its website offers to nudist travelers.
Okay, so which sites offer the best information for those who want to run around in the nude for a long weekend of more. For my money, I believe www.internaturally.com, www.castawaystravel.com and www.pengtravel.co.uk are the best nudist travel sites on the web.
Internaturally is effectively run by travel agent Sherry Stafford-Loibl, who also serves as the editor of the quarterly nudist travel magazine, "Internaturally Travel." The Internaturally site includes literally hundreds of photos of resorts in North America, the Caribbean and Europe that give the would-be traveler a real sense of what to expect once they arrive at the resort and take off all of their clothes.
Castaways Travel of Houston, Texas deserves kudos for a nice update of its site, particularly the photo pages of the resorts that they feature. Jim and Champagne Bailey include a grid on their site that at a glance allows the traveller to quickly learn about the amenities at each resort, including whether they offer a nude beach or clothing optional swimming pool.
Finally for nudists on the other side of the pond (and in the former colonies as well), the Peng Travel site is the best when it comes to European nudist resorts including Cap d' Agde in France (The Naked City), Costa Natura in Spain and Hotel Vritomartis in Crete.
For nudists and for those who are contemplating a nude vacation for the first time, the web is a Godsend. If you don't believe Godiva, just search the Internaturally, Castaways Travel and Peng Travel websites and you will be simply amazed what is available for couples and singles who want to give their clothes a needed rest. Naturally yours, Godiva.
