Netherlands

Naturism was introduced to the Netherlands in the 19th-century. In 1931 organised naturism began with gatherings for sport and relaxation.

Today, the Dutch are very tolerant of nudism, and the Netherlands is blessed with a coastline of 450 kilometres. You will find many beaches for nude recreation, on the coast, the Wadden Islands and along the many inland lakes.

On the coast, the nude section is at the far end of the beach and inland nude spots tend to be in more isolated areas. There are beaches, lakes and parks including five with official naturist status.

Look for signs reading naakstrand (nude beach) or naturistenstrand (naturist beach) which are specifically reserved for nudists. If it's a beach where only certain areas allow nudity, these signs will be located at the poles marking the borders.

You can recreate in the nude in places that have officially been designated as such or places that are suitable for it. Whether a place is suitable for nude recreation is determined not by a city council or a police officer, but by a judge. To avoid misunderstandings, the NFN tries to convince towns to give certain places official status/designation.
Once a location is deemed suitable for nude recreation, a town council can not limit nude recreation at the location and they also can’t fully forbid nude recreation.

The Netherlands naturist campsites and resorts. These you can visit as a day visitor or stay for a few nights. Usually, membership is required. You will also find some smaller naturist campsites, where no membership is required and a handful of naturist bed and breakfasts.

All over the country, you will find saunas and spas where naturism is standard. These saunas are called Sauna, Thermen, Thermae or Spa and can be regarded as public bathhouses. There are many more indoor municipal pools which have special times and days hosting naturist swims and naturist clubs to join.
