Islands of the Caribbean with historically strong ties to Great Britain aren’t exactly known for letting it all hang out. On French Caribbean destinations, you can expect to see women baring (at least) their breasts when soaking up the sun. On Barbados, you can expect to get a fine just for stepping off the beach in your swimsuit.
To each their own, of course. It’s differences like these that make each island its own unique destination.
Still, in the historically British island of Antigua, you can have your tea time cake and eat it, too.
Eden Beach, one of four beaches easily accessible from The Hawksbill Resort just past quaint Five Islands village, boasts being Antigua’s one and only clothing optional seaside sanctuary.
The beach is much larger than you might expect with lots of private nooks. There’s even an exotic mini-islet within swimming distance from shore. The place is positively picturesque.
But you’ll have to show some restraint. There’s a strict “no cameras allowed” policy out of respect for your fellow nude neighbors.
If you want to sample these sands solo. Try visiting at noon. Hawksbill will be serving lunch and you’ll have the beach all to yourself.
While there, blissfully alone at the height of the day, I took the opportunity to shoot this month’s moment of zen.
