I just wondered what the deal was with the beaches in Rio. Is it OK to be topless on Ipanema and Copacabana? Also are there nudist beaches? I like to wear as little as possible - thanks very much.

Jokes aside does anyone know anything about this kind of thing? Every now and then you will see a woman or a couple of women sunning themselves with their tops off. However, this is generally only when seated or laying down.

Nude beaches in Brazil are not numerous, but they're certainly beautiful. Nudism is practiced unofficially in several Brazilian beaches, but on many of them, there are breaches of the naturist's code of ethics and nudists may face the risk of harassment or worse. Also remember that according to Brazilian laws, nudism outside designated areas is considered a misdemeanor. The best resource for information about official nude beaches, clubs, and communities in Brazil is the Brazilian Federation of Naturism FBrN. During most of the year, naturists can expect balmy breezes, gently swishing coconut groves, a sweet-salty smell and water so ideally warm, you feel like you're one with the ocean. The main city near Barra Seca is Linhares, about 38 miles away on a dirt road. The Naturist Association of Minas Gerais www.
Topless activists took over Brazil's Ipanema beach in Rio de Janeiro on Tuesday, as a group of Brazilian models, actresses and Brazil's recently elected topless Muses took off their bikinis and shirts for the Toplessaco protest, to end Brazil's prohibition on going topless at the beach. Last month a contest to choose a Topless Muse selected Karla Clemente by popular online vote. Natache Iemanja was also chosen by the jury. The Toplessaco is the second edition of an event, organised by Brazilian women and feminists, that aims to achieve the end of the prohibition against topless sunbathing on Brazil's beaches.
After visiting the famous beaches of Rio de Janeiro , where the skimpiest amount of cloth passes for a tanga thong bathing suit or the even minuter version called fio dental or dental floss, and beachgoers revel in exposing almost their entire bodies, it isn't surprising that Brazil is one of the few South American countries that has legalized nude or naturist beaches and resorts. This is not without a struggle, though. Brazilian naturism has its following and is rising in popularity with international nudists and naturalists. Panama is a small, conservative country, but does have a lovely nude beach. Contadora Island lies off of Panama's Pacific coast. You can go nude at Playa de las Suecas , a white sand beach in a protected cove. The island is reached by plane on a minute flight from Panama City. Playa Escondida is the only official naturist beach in Argentina. It's a rustic Atlantic beach with dunes and cliffs surrounded by woods and meadows. Arica, Chile's northernmost city, has Playa Corazoneswhich has been known to nudists for a long time.
