Last month, we brought you the news that one Michigan beach was named the No. 3 best spot to skinny-dip in America. Well, as it turns out, that beach is also one of the best places to get your nudie on in the entire world.

Of course, don’t forgot that skinny-dipping is not legal, so we don’t think you should do it. But, this study claims that this beach in Michigan is a great spot to get your skinny-dipping on.

My Dating Adviser has put out its 2023 list of the top 100 places to skinny dip in the world. “Our study compared 100 nude beach spots across the following categories: beach quality, safety, weather, and hotel cost (with seven data points),” they explain in the story. “We then ranked the top 25 nude beaches globally, with the best location per country.”

Before you hit that beach wearing, well, nothing, you should know the consequences. Michigan law states anyone caught for indecent exposure could get slammed with a misdemeanor and up to one year in jail and/or a fine of up to $1,000. That’s a lot of trouble just to skinny dip. Honestly, some bikinis are so tiny these days, it’s almost like skinny-dipping anyway, in my opinion.

So, which Michigan beach is one of the best to skinny-dip in the world? According to My Dating Advisor, it’s Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. It’s the No. 31 best place to skinny-dip in the world and the No. 3 best spot in the U.S. If you really want to get your nudie on and hit the best beach in the world for skinny-dipping, head to Lokrum Island in Croatia, a small uninhabited island. That’s been named the best skinny-dipping location in the world, according to this study. Find the full list of the best places to skinny dip in America and the world here.
