Welcome to

The social sharing community and fact finding website for genuine naturists around the globe       
ANW Members are Building a Strong, Safe, Respectful Community for Genuine Naturists

Your ANW User Guide 2023

When we created ANW, we wished for it to be a "One Stop Shop" for all things naturist. In doing so, we have created a large and feature rich website. The size of this User Guide is a reflection of the scope of opportunities ANW has to offer. It is by no means a complete guide to the whole site, but hopefully it shares enough information to help you on your way.

1) The Purpose of ANW

ANW has been created for naturist individuals, families and opportunities to communicate with each other, to share knowledge, points of view, products, stories and friendships; and to help guide newcomers into the wonders of naturism. It is a safe place for people to share their naturism with family and friends, to meet new people, find holiday destinations, beaches, clubs and other venues. Create blogs, write articles, discuss topics and submerge themselves in a world of naturism.

ANW aims to help fight against preconceptions of naturism, support causes and aid in bringing a better worldwide appreciation of naturism. The site believes naturism is fantastic fun; that it helps create a physically and emotionally healthier society and should be open to all.

ANW believes that the website, like naturism itself, should primarily be a positive and joyful experience with a serious side. ANW has a duty to convey the right attitude towards the lifestyle, society and the world. Members have the right to feel comfortable on the site. They should expect other users to behave as suitably as they would if they were to visit a naturist beach or join a club. Members will find ANW to be a positive extension to their naturist lives and help improve the quality of their naked adventures. ANW offers a Free Verification Service as part of an initiative to encourage honest and appropriate behaviour. Anti-social conduct is extremely rare, and not tolerated, all users are encouraged to report any unwelcome behaviour. The ANW motto in this respect is "Protect Yourself, Protect ANW and Protect Naturism."

ANW only allows advertising of products and services from businesses that are members of the site and have a product/service to promote that is suitable to the naturist market. You won't see annoying flashing popup ads, cookie style advertising or advertising of anything not relevant to our Naturist World.

2) Safety on ANW

The information you share on ANW is for connecting purposes only, by completing your profile questions you are allowing people to know a little about you. We may on occasions refer to site statistics, such as how many members are from the USA, but your personal information is never shared with any third party company for marketing or anu other purposes. You will not be targeted with pop-up-style adverts, you will not be asked to accept cookies on signing in, your time on ANW is for mutually exchanging an interest in naturism with other people around the world, finding information about naturist opportunities and sharing knowledge. This time is yours and is not something ANW believes should be tracked by external bodies for marketing purposes.

In the December 2021 site survey which was open to all Members, 89% of those taking part rated safety as an important and positive aspect of ANW. It is something ANW feels very strongly about and we are proud of the respectful and appropriate ANW community that is both a credit to humanity and naturism.

ANW offers a free and simple verification service for all members to use which encourages trust. More information on this can be found at topic 10 of this User guide. ANW encourages all members to take part in this service and believes that it is totally fair for members to ask that other members become verified before following them or accepting friendships. If you agree that this is important, you can use this suggested message as a general reply to all members who have not been verified: "Thank you for the friendship request. I choose to not accept friendships from those users who have not filled in their member profile questions and taken part in Free Verification Service. Please refer to the ANW user guide for more information or contact ANW about the process at [email protected]. It is nothing personal but I believe it is important to know a little about someone and that they are basically who they say they are before becoming friends. Once you have become verified please ask again and I will be happy to consider your friendship."

ANW suggests that all members take sensible precautions when trusting others. The ANW community is very friendly. 97% of those completing the survey rated ANW as friendly. So it is easy to assume everyone is suitably behaved and honest. However, it is impossible to guarantee the behaviour and actions of all users of the site. Other than the Verification: Consider peoples input, what they share, what they post, how they communicate, what they write about in the forum. How do they appear in private messages? Show caution before you swap emails, and even more before meeting up away from ANW. If they ask you to send photos or make statements about why they do not share images themselves or why it is better to communicate via email, don't be afraid to ask yourself what their real intention may be. Complaints of bad or inappropriate behaviour are thankfully very, very rare. But that doesn't mean that you should assume everyone is as honest as you.

ANW doesn't like to dwell too much on the negatives of the misuse of naturism on the internet. No genuine naturist using ANW should pester other members, wish to share sexual images or make anyone feel uncomfortable. It should go without saying that as ANW is a naturist site then it is porn free and not about swinging. However, many websites using the terms of naturism and nudism do fail to present genuine naturism. We ask all members to report anyone who breaks the code of reasonable conduct on ANW. No one should allow anyone else to make them feel uncomfortable or make them want to delete their account with ANW. This is a naturist site and it is for the use of people who treat the site, the members and naturism with respect. By reporting site abuse, allowing us to remove those abusers and remaining on ANW yourself, you are helping to keep ANW safe for all naturists to use for many years to come, and ensuring that anyone choosing the naturist lifestyle understand it and choose it for the right reasons. Never believe that ANW would endorse or allow any negative behaviour towards you, other members or naturism. We can only remove offending members if we are made aware of them.

ANW asks all members to "Protect Yourself, Protect ANW and Protect Naturism."

6) Account Creation

It takes less than five minutes to sign up to ANW, and once you have done this you will receive a welcome email with a link to follow. Your email settings might make the link not clickable, in which case you can copy it and paste it into your browser. You will then be able login to the site using your new credentials. If for any reason you do not receive this email (please check in your junk folder first), then send an email to [email protected] where we will help you to access your account.

7) Arriving on ANW

Once you have signed in, you will be directed to the Members Homepage.  This is where the main activity feed of the site is.  As you explore ANW you will see hints and tips on how to start using the various functionalities of the site. 

Back to the top of the page, you will see an auto suggest search bar helping you to easily find content. By clicking on the magnifying glass you can choose specific searches for example, beaches or holiday destinations. Next to this is the sites mini menu, all of the items contained here will be personal to your account and includes links for Friend Requests, Notifications and Messages.

The circular icon at the top right of the page is your profile icon and takes you directly to your own profile page.

8) Profile Options

The Profile Options on your own profile page supplies an important link to "Edit my Profile". Your Profile name should be the name you use in everyday life, and can be for yourself as an individual, or mention you both as a couple or a family name so that people can connect with you. You don't have to use your real name, but it is easier for people to connect with you if you use a unique, memorable and audible user name, we discourage people from using sets of letters and numbers. Using a business name, organisation or a name suggesting an agenda for a Member Profile page is confusing to the other members of the site and detracts from the listings within the "Explore" menu tab and should not be used. This also protects the business entity or organisation from people taking their identity. By taking a few moments to fill out the other questions on this page, allows for easier searching in the browse Members page. There are nineteen questions, you don't have to answer them all, but it helps people learn more about you if you do. The information you share is used purely for connecting reasons making it easier to find friends and is not sold to or used by third parties.  

9) Customising Your Profile Page

Your Profile Page - displays your personal activity feed. - At the top of the page you will see a cover photo and your profile initials or photograph. There are settings choices in the settings tab.
Below this, is your page menu which displays your personal site input like your personal info, friends and a link to any "Explore" pages you might manage.

On the right hand sidebar is the Member Verification which displays the details of those who have been verified. There is a tab should you wish to upgrade your Membership and Profile options, Friend Requests and other activity.

10) Verification 

Once you have filled in your Member profile questions, as above, we recommend you take use of the Free Verification Service. It encourages openness and honesty within ANW and helps with making connections. All users of the community can be verified for free by the administration team.

When completing your profile questions as above, please remember the information does not need to be exact. Nicknames/Usernames are fine, suitably approximate date of birth and a nearby large town rather than specific location can be used. Verification will refer to gender, age in year blocks (eg mid 1970's) and your resident state/county and country.  

Then email a copy of photographic ID (passport/resident card/drivers license) with an accompanying photograph (dressed is fine) to the Admin team at ANW by clicking on this link which will take you to a form that you safely submit your documents. alternatively you can email [email protected] to be used for the completion of the verification. Accompanying imagery can be added to your verification such as Naturist Membership cards or any certificates that may be relevant to show your field of expertise if used within your profile. If your ID is linked to a different state/county and/or country to your profile location then please send proof of current residency with you ID. Unique ID reference numbers  and street name and number can be obscured if preferred but all imagery is deleted once the verification is complete.

As part of the friendly atmosphere on ANW profile sharing is encouraged. Verifying your Profile as a Couple or Family. Please send relevant ID and imagery for both adult profile users for Couple verification and add an accompanying family photograph (clothed is fine) for Family verification. 

Verified Members have a "tick" after their name and verification description. The information shared on your profile and used to complete the verification service is purely used to help build trust in the community and to make it easier for you to find friends and is not used by ANW for any other purpose or offered to any third parties.  

Verified Life Members receive Sponsored Status and verified Annual Members receive Featured Status.

11) Your Notifications

Located within the mini menu, at the very top of all of the sites pages is a notifications bell. 

Controlling your Notifications

12) Communicating with Members, Groups and Enterprises

You can connect with fellow ANW Members in a variety of ways. You can send your Respect to Members for their input (by visiting their profile page).

Send a poke or two (see the Profile Options Image below), request friendships, leave a review on their profile page, send messages and add comments to their posts. All communication should be respectful, pester free and appropriate to Naturism and ANW. Comments should not be of a flirtatious nature or referring to people's bodies or nudity in a way that could make someone uncomfortable. You should treat Members of ANW with the same courtesy that you would show them at a club or on a beach.

If someone wishes to make friends with you and they have not completed their profile questions or become verified, it is totally suitable for you to reject their friendship and/or ask for them to take part in the free Verification service before accepting their friendship.

13) Blocking and Reporting

The ability to block fellow Members from your profile page can be done from their profile page. ANW hopes this is a feature that will be rarely used. If you wish to block a Member because you do not get on with them, then that is your prerogative. However, if in the rare event, you should wish to block someone because of their disrespectful, pestering, anti-social or non naturist behaviour, we then request that you report this behaviour and the Member in question to us by emailing [email protected] or via the "Report" link in Profile Options of their profile page. This action is not simply about protecting yourself from bad behaviour, but also protecting other Members of ANW, the reputation of the site and the reputation of naturism. We want no one ever leave the site because of someone else's bad behaviour, it should be the person who breaks the rules of good conduct of ANW who is removed. - Protect Yourself - Protect ANW - Protect Naturism.

On the left hand sidebar (dependant upon your Membership level) is your badge (see Member's Badges below), personal statistics, likes and friends.

14) Your Shortcuts

A useful feature of the site is the shortcuts feature. It enables you to quickly add a favourite beach listing, event, Member etc simply by pressing the "Add to Shortcuts" tab on the necessary page. Please see the example below;

Below is an example of what your Shortcuts collection will look like located in the right hand sidebar on your profile page.

15) Members Homepage

You can easily navigate to the Homepage by clicking on this logo

18) Explore

This tab takes you to several sub headings which list over 4,000 naturist destinations giving you plenty of places to choice for your next holiday, beach visit, club / federation, experience, event or product and service. You can choice whether to have the results display on the page in a list or grid view. 

Beach Destinations - There are beaches, lakes, rivers and waterfalls. These destinations are separated into Continents and Countries and searches can be made using a variety of Keywords and Locations.

Life and Annual Members can share images on Beach pages via the "Photos" tab on the page menu. We recommend 2 or 3 images on a beach from each individual Member who wish to share, so there are not too many, and these images ideally should show something of the look and lay out of the beach. If a member has many photos they wish to share with the community they can also chose to create an album to display in the Albums area named after that location.  

Beach Destinations also show on an interactive world map, zoom into your required destination and click on the beaches you find.


If you are looking for inspiration you will find it under the "Destinations" menu heading.

Holidays and Clubs with Camping - These listings are separated into the following categories;

You can click on the type of accommodation you require like above which will then take you to all of the listings listed in Sponsored followed by Featured followed by basic listing. In the sidebar on the right hand side you can narrow down your search by inputting an area or address, the name or specifics like Ideal For - Everyone or Families etc. Or go to the Browse page in the page menu and go directly to the Search Bar.

Daytime Clubs and Societies - These listings are displayed within the following categories and are clubs that you visit but do not have overnight accommodation. Landed Clubs means they have a premises and Non Landed Clubs are mainly internet based but offer meet ups. Again, you are able to search for a particular club or society like above by clicking on the category you require ie Landed Club which takes you to all of the listings listed in Sponsored followed by Featured followed by basic listing within that category. The right hand sidebar gives you a search box so you can easily narrow down what you are looking for by inputting an area or address, the name or specifics like Ideal For - Everyone or Families etc. Or go to the "Browse" tab in the page menu which will take you directly to the Search Bar.

Experiences and Excursions - The menu below displays the categories available in this listing. If you click on one ie Cruises you will be taken to the Browse page which displays the results of all cruises on offer. They are listed in Sponsored followed by Featured order. You can also use the search box to narrow down what you are looking for by choosing the name, or location or who the cruise is ideal for, for example, party, couples, families etc.

Holistic and Wellness - Again, you have the categories like the photo below, click on the category you are interested in, alternatively go to the "Browse tab" and choose the listings via their category, or name or location.

Products and Services - The categories shown below give you an idea of the listing types displayed within Products and Services. Like all of the listings within the "Explore" main menu, you can search on the homepage by using the categories as displayed below ie Property Sales & Domestic Services etc, or via the browse page where you can choose based on the category, name, location etc.


World Naked Bike Ride - ANW believe that some of the World Naked Bike Rides are lacking up to date information and some are difficult to find, so ANW have created an area to help site users find up to date information with relevant links, maps and routes detailing as many WNBR events as possible. Some of the rides organisers only give out the information of their ride at last minute keeping the event "protected". ANW will attempt to keep the information as up to date as possible.

Events - Enterprise Members can create events as part of their package. If you click on the Events Sub menu you will be taken to the homepage which displays all events in Sponsored, followed by Featured order. Or head to the "Browse" tab to be taken to the search box where you can choice the event by location or category or price. Members can write a review or take part in the event discussions and add images to the event. 

19) Connect - 

Located under the main menu heading you will find sub headings such as:

Find Friends

Located underneath the main menu heading "Connect" (8). Here you can find Members that are reviewed, top reviews etc. There are various options to choose from when finding Members which is why it is so important to fill out your profile questions, if someone wants to find a person who lives in California for example, they will only find them if they have put that in their profile. Members are listed in descending order of Sponsored, Featured and then Verified.

Community Blog Library

Blogs are found within two separate areas. Life and Annual Members have their own exclusive Members Only Blog Library with the ability to share their blog posts in a more private setting, or within the wider community Blog Library.

20) ANW Members

This main menu tab has been created for Life and Annual Members to easily find content exclusive to them.


Sharing images is a fun and wonderful thing to do on ANW. It is something that many members enjoy, especially when they get to know how friendly and respectful the ANW community is.

Images can be shared direct on the ANW activity feed, but these become harder to find as time progresses. By sharing images within Albums you get to name your album, place it in a choice of categories and subcategories and add to the album whenever you wish. This then allows the album to be searchable within the library for as long as you choose it to be, where you can collect comments, reviews and likes. On creating an Album you have choices as to who sees it, you can for example, share it with your friends. You can place a name and description on each photo and chose the image that represents that album. Albums can be created in the Album area and also direct from activity feeds. The creation of an album and additions to an album will still show on activity feeds and the albums will also show in the album tab of your profile page. Tip: When uploading an image allow the uploading to get to 100% before moving off the page.     

Create a Group or Local Meet Up

This tab takes Life and Annual Members to the subscription page where they can create and run their own groups. There is no additional cost as it is part of the Membership package. Team ANW are happy to supply tips and guidance to those members who are interested in creating or running a Group or Meet Up. 

Discounts and Offers

Gifted to Life and Annual Members from naturist venues and businesses around the world, ANW Members have the opportunity to receive exclusive promotions which are displayed within this tab. If you would like to offer ANW members a discount for using your enterprise then contact Anna at [email protected]
