You can find a great hippie town in every state in Americabut even in the hippiest of cities, there are few opportunities to shed the pesky encumbrance of clothing and strip down to your most natural state. Nude beaches in the rest of the world are far more common than in the prudish USA, but there are a number of under-the-radar nude and clothing-optional beaches around our fair country where the freest of spirits gather to cast off any judgements or inhibitions, and frolic au naturel among like-minded characters.

There they hoped to encounter enough ancient spirituality—and hashish—to inject their bourgeois existence with a trace of meaning. From Turkey to Iran, Afghanistan, Nepal, and India, travelers found respite in the local customs and garments of the Global South, surviving thriftily on the strength of their currencies.
GOA — Elisabeth Ramnacher, a German who prefers to go by the name Yogini, wanted to show her employees what Goa used to look like back in its hippie days.

The annual music festival was organised by underground zine Re Nudo from untiland the last three editions were held in Parco Lambro in Milan. For a few days each year, the park was home to emerging and established performers, feminists, commune enthusiasts, hippies, militant lefties and curious passersby.
