Nudist holiday: A new website offers naturist home lettings that allow clothes-free travellers
Holiday website NaturistBnB was launched earlier this year, with over 200 listing across the globe.
Finish couple Petri and Minna Karjalainen are adding more every day, and use their own experience to help nudists.
Finding it hard to find places that were accepting of naked travellers, it meant that they struggled to choose a holiday destination that wasn’t just a designated nudist resort.
Destinations in the UK include a three-bedroom home in North London or a three-bedroom house in Frome.
While only five properties are listed in the UK currently, it is growing across Europe and the rest of the world.
Petri told Lonely Planet: “What is a bit tricky with Airbnb is that we have to stay clothed while we have guests in our house.
“We did try to list as “clothing optional” or “nudist” at Airbnb, but our bookings fell down dramatically.
“Then we started remembering our naturist holidays and we realised that there is no Airbnb alternative for naturist people.”
He states that they have received “hundreds of emails” from people who both thank them and congratulate them.
More resorts are opening that are allowing nudist beaches to travellers.

Surprisingly, it is not an offence to be naked in public in England and Wales
Are you allowed to be naked in public in the UK?
Surprisingly, it is not an offence to be naked in public in England and Wales.
It becomes an offence if the person who stripped off is seen to have had the intention to upset or shock.
Naked walkers and bike rides across the country show that it is allowed in the UK if it isn’t for nefarious or scary means.
Yet if passersby complain and are offended, it could carry a prison sentence.

Some destinations in the world have also welcomed nudists to their abodes.
A restaurant in Paris opened last year to diners who leave their clothes at the door when sampling the cuisine.
A naked cruise is also on offer for those wanting to sail the seas in the buff.
Different levels of nudity are on offer for novices to experienced naturists.
A woman chose to travel the world and post her naked pictures on Instagram in a bid to break down nudity.
