My wife and I enjoy nude sunbathing and are having a hard time finding places for a vacation in Bali. Bali has not changed. You will not find nudist beaches or resorts in Bali. In fact, I believe that in Indonesia it may actually be illegal.
It is actually not legal to go nude on the beaches of Bali. It is possible though, but is it worth the risk? This beach is probably the most famous beach in Bali. Kuta is a beautiful crescent-shaped beach, which is only about a ten-minute drive from the Denpasar airport. Many people say to Kuta Beach is the best in the world. On the beach, the atmosphere very cosy and topless bathing and similar are usually not a big problem. A sunset at Uluwatu Beach is one of the most beautiful sights in the world, and there are many local cafes in the area.
I do not think you will find what you seek in Bali. Have read there are 'Gay Hotels' with clothing 'optional'. May be worth checking these out!!!! As far as I know, this doesn't exist in Bali , or anywhere in Asia. It's not in the culture.
Please do not come to Bali if you want to be clothing -optional. Indonesia is a very modest country and while they let Bali slide a little because of the tourism industry, you risk very bad repercussions if you appear in the nude anywhere, even on a beach. I can't imagine why you have decided to come to Indonesia for a vacation of this sort.. I am not a prude but wanting to do even semi-nude sunbathing in a majority Islamic and Hindu country is not allowed. Agree with ubudpuppy - I respect your choice of holiday style, and likewise I know you would respect the country and culture you are travelling to.
