The nudist revolution! However, I find it both fascinating and awesome that more and more people are stripping for more and more reasons. So, ignoring the obvious naked activity that most people will happily adhere to and also the mass of naked, drunk backpackers, here are 5 things that you can do in New Zealand absolutely naked legally! Stay tuned and hopefully this event will go ahead this year too.
Peka Peka Beach, Kapiti Coast
With miles of coastline and a relatively small population, it's not difficult to find a secluded spot here where you won't be disturbed. Nude bathing is much more common in the summer, but New Zealand offers many lovely days in the spring and autumn—and even in winter—where being at the beach is entirely possible, even if the water is a bit chilly. Apart from the beach, kiwis and visitors alike can enjoy being clothes-free in many other places as well. Forests, streams, rivers, lakes—they're all places where you can work on an all-over tan and feel the soft breezes on your skin. But there isn't the level of tolerance in New Zealand that you might find in Europe, even for topless bathing. Topless or nude bathing would generally be regarded as acceptable if done discretely, but not on a busy beach, particularly one that's family-oriented. The further south you go, the fewer nudists you'll encounter, apart from a few hardy souls. If you confine yourself to discreet areas or "places where nudity is known to occur," you're not likely to encounter any issues with the authorities. New Zealand has no official nude beaches. Nevertheless, some well-known clothing-optional beaches are official in everything but name.
However, thanks to its European influence, there are a surprising amount of clothing-optional beaches around the country. So if you want a break from social oppression or want to work on a line-free tan, then check out these best nudist beaches in New Zealand! Strictly speaking, nudity in public places is not illegal in New Zealand. However, these nudist beaches provide a place away from judgement and can feel less worried about taking your clothes off. Wellington might have a bit of a reputation for nippy cold winds, not ideal for taking your clothes off, but Breaker Bay is well sheltered from the prevailing winds. Be aware that the nudist section of the beach is on the main stretch of the beach.
