7 of the best nude beaches in Canada


Cyrstal Crescent Beach – Sambro, Nova Scotia

Twenty-nine kilometres south of Halifax, Crystal Crescent Beach has lovely white sand and a gorgeous view of the Atlantic. Before you get too excited about skinny dipping, though, be warned: the water is very, very cold for almost the entire year, and the beach itself doesn’t warm up until the summer hits. Chilliness notwithstanding, it’s a peaceful spot, with the clothing-optional section a short walk from the main entrance. If you choose to put your clothes on, explore the 13-km trail loop that hugs the coastline.
