Nudist Colonies

I have a dream of living in a beautiful location near the beach and the forest where it is warm all year round so I can run around nude at my discretion with nobody telling me that I have to be dressed. Am I alone? I think not, in fact, I believe there are people out there living my dream. Did you know there are nudist communities or colonies throughout the world? No, they did not die out in the 70s. They do still exist and I've actually been to some of them. Although, my personal dream is not to live in a communal situation, but to live on my own property where the only rules are those I've invented and can break at my will. However, if I were to desire communal living there are plenty of options.

Let's take a look at a few options.

Glen Eden Nudist Resort. Like many others GE terms itself a resort, but there is a large percentage of part-time and full-time residents besides the short term visitors. Glen Eden is a trailer park and camping facility located on 155 acres in the Santa Ana Mountains. Perfectly located in a micro climate which allows for sunshine when neighboring areas are cloudy, GE is positioned for an easy drive from either San Diego or Los Angeles. Since we frequent GE, I will certainly provide plenty of information including and beyond the standard brochure info.  See my update on considering to buy at GE.
The Naked City in France, Cap d'Agde is a town where everything, including shopping can be done naked. This seaside town in the southern French region of Languedoc-Rousillon began as a beach campground and has grown into a official Naturist Village. The village is being fitted as pedestrian friendly and is rumored to have a new hotel available by Spring of 2011. Based on the famed police presence, families and single women should feel safe to visit or live in this skin friendly town.

Cambium in the Dominican Republic is breaking ground for their holistic naturist village. You may buy property within the community and have a home built. I have yet to determine which utilities will be available, but if you desire to live close to nature in a holistic environment, this could be the one. Close to beaches, but on a hillside surrounded by tropical trees and plants with a community center offering massages, activities, swimming, shopping facilities and they are located within a few minutes to cities so you are not so remote from civilization.

This is just the tip of the iceberg. I may have to make this post a series. I'd love to hear your experiences and thoughts on the subject.


  1. I hate to begin my first comment on your site with a criticism but, you are SO wrong!

    Glen Eden is NOT an easy ride from San Diego, it's a real b**ch! Well, for someone used to Wisconsin traffic, anyway...

    Other than that, great job! We'll be watching you!

  2. Sorry allnudist, I guess I was thinking of my own experience driving from San Diego to GE and it was quite easy. I suppose it is all relative to what you are used to with regard to traffic. But then, San Diego and Los Angeles traffic are both difficult to deal with until you get out of the immediate vicinity.
