Canada

Canada is the second largest country in the world, but since it occupies the northern half of North America (with part of its territory lying north of the Artic Circle), about four-fifths of the country's population of 35 million people live near the southern border with the United States. Canada's coastline is the largest in the world (243,042 kilometres), divided into the Atlantic, the Pacific and the Artic Ocean.
The majority of Canada has a cold or severely cold winter climate, but southerly areas are warm in summer, and the country has lots of wonderful beaches, both in the coast and in the uncountable lakes and rivers inland.

Laws regarding nudity don't seem to be very clear in Canada. "Indecent acts" are forbidden, but it is unclear what an indecent act is. Generally speaking, Canadian courts are lenient on public nudity as long as it’s non-sexual and not harassing anyone, and the courts have found that nude swimming is not offensive under this definition.
There are only 3 official nude beaches in Canada, but many other places are traditional nudist spots. Not surprisingly, all of them are located on the south of the country. On the other hand, there are at least 20 landed clubs and resorts member of the Federation of Canadian Naturists, not to mention several other non-landed associations.
Below you can find a map with most of the beaches and places in Canada where nudism can be practiced. The name and locations have been checked in several sources, but we cannot guarantee the accuracy in all cases. Please check by yourself the current status of these beaches.

I have dedicated most of my free time in the last years to discover the world, and beaches offer some of the most stunning landscapes on Earth. The next step was to enjoy them as naturally as possible, which obviously mean without clothes. Now I think it is time for me to share this liberating experience and try to help others to discover it.
