I've noticed this subject comes up fairly often but only has 13 facts.

Obelisk Beach -- Australia -- Mosman N.S.W

Ten Mile Lagoon -- Australia -- Esperance W.A

North Swanbourne Beach -- Australia -- Perth W.A. The Swanbourne Beach Nude Olympics are held every February with such events as the tug-war, egg throwing, pass-the-bucket, body painting & a Best Bum competition. It is considered a family friendly event.

Point Impossible -- Australia -- Torquay Victoria

Casuarina Beach -- Australia -- Darwin N.T.

Maslin Beach -- Australia -- Adelaide S.A. The first official nude beach in Australia. In 2013 the organisers of the Maslin Beach Nude Olympics received a letter from Australian Olympic Commitee demanding they stop using the word "Olympics" After an attempt to rename it "The Maslin Beach Nudo Lympics" gave rise to more complaints from the A.O.C., "Olympics" was replaced with "Games"

Breaker Bay -- New Zealand -- Wellington

Neve Midbar -- Israel -- Dead Sea

Abrico Beach -- Brazil -- Rio de Janeiro

Plakias Beach -- Greece -- Island of Crete

Added. Australia does seem to have more than its fair share. Added a few more non-Aussie ones to balance it out.

 Ta. I was going to add Massarandupio & Valalta as well as a few others but I wasn't sure about the sources & I was a bit worried it might seem like "own research" (wink) so I dropped them from the list.

I'm going to stick my oar in (which could be painful on a nudist beach). I don't know why, when I couldn't get them all right when there were 13 facts. The following are official nudist beaches.

Delavoyas -- Greece -- Andros.

Paradise Beach -- Greece -- Mykonos.

Super Paradise Beach -- Greece -- Mykonos.

Budleigh Salterton -- United Kingdom -- Devon.

Perranporth -- United Kingdom -- Cornwall. Known for good surf and sand dunes, like most official nudist beaches in the U.K., nudism is not allowed in the dunes.

Holkham -- United Kingdom -- Norfolk. A  sandy beach, with a fast tide fill due to the extensive flat sands. Holkham stood in for the Virginia coast at the end of the film 'Shakespeare in Love'.

Binz -- Germany -- Island of Rugen. Many German beaches are designated 'clothing optional'.

 

Source: own brain, then googling to check official status.

Note to editor, please forgive my tech inabilities, Rugen has an umlaut over the 'u' but I don't know how to do that.
