Best Nude Beaches in Jamaica
Although topless sunbathing is widely acceptable in Jamaica, spots for full-on nude sunbathing are a little scarce — but there are a handful of good resort options for vacationers who prefer to tan au naturel, whether they are spring breakers or moms trying to avoid tan lines.
Grand Lido Negril
The Grand Lido Negril: Beachside body painting and late-night naked parties in the hot tub make for a nudist-friendly, and definitely R-rated, resort. On the fringes of the beach, this hotel designates the clothing-optional sections.
Sunset Beach Resort & Spa
- Sunset Beach Resort & Spa: Not all topless sunbathers are party-hardy 20-year-olds. Sunset Beach is actually a great choice for families: Couples can bring the kids but still partake in some adult indulgences, like the nude beach down the shore from the resort.
Grand Lido Braco
Grand Lido Braco:No kids under 16 are allowed at this resort, and with good reason. As at its Negril sister, half of the Grand Lido Braco is an "au naturel" (aka nudist) resort, while the other side is referred to by the staff, without judgment, as the "prude" side.
Gran Bahia Principe Jamaica
Gran Bahia Principe Jamaica: The Grand Bahia is a good choice for low-key parents and couples interested in naked sunbathing, but not partying. Despite the all-night karaoke, it's a pretty tame crowd, and the nude beach on the far western edge of the property is blocked off by a tall fence.
