CNN – The best nudist beach is located in Croatia
The Jerolim beach, on the island of the same name, which is part of the «amazing collection» from the archipelago of Hvar`s Pakleni islands, is first on CNN`s list of the best nudist destinations in the whole world.

The beach is described as a place of untouched nature, rocky coast and crystal blue sea. The beach is, as they say, equally popular among nudists and those who prefer to wear swimwear. Those in search of a little privacy are recommended to `dissappear` among pine forests and find secluded bays.

Jerolim became the first naturist island in Croatia, when in 1960 this type of tourism became popular. CNN stresses that Croatia is famous for its nudist beaches. The history of naturisam in Croatia owes a lot to King Edward VIII (who abdicated in 1936) and his wife Wallis Simpson, who asked and got permission to swim naked in the waters around the island of Rab.

The announcing of Jerolim as the best nudist beach in the world is just one of the numerous recognitions received by Hvar and its islands. Lonely Planet proclaimed it one of the top five destinations for 2012, while the readers of Conde Nast chose it as the 8th best European island.

The hotels in Hvar also received praise from the world. Hotel Adriana is one of the top 100 hotels, according to Fodor, and the Sunday Times proclaimed hotel Riva one of the best boutique hotels in Europe.

On CNN`s list, right after the Jerolim beach, is the beautiful Brazillian sandy beach Praia de Galheta in Santa Caterina, and in third place the beach close to the Italian Marine di Camerota. In fourth place are the luxury villas on Phuket in Thailand, while the nudist cruise along the Cote de Azur is in fifth place.
