Go Skinny Dipping



Three amazing places for skinny dipping.

Stavros, Greece

Go: Rent bikes in town and head north. The beach extends for 10km and is pocketed with serene, uninhabited sections.

Stay: The Electra Hotel is located only few blocks from the beach in Stavros, in the heart of the town. For more privacy, walk 45 minutes north to the next town Paralia Vrasna and stay at the Studios Alexandra.

Eat: It wouldn’t be Greece without a good Greek gyro. If you’re looking for something a little more substantial, little tavernas are scattered throughout the town and serve traditional Greek food.

Drink: The Malibu beach bar is perfect for an afternoon cocktail. Or for a more traditional taste of Greece, pay homage to the 6,000-year-old wine history with a glass of Retsina.

Alcoy, Spain

Go: By bus, about an hour and twenty minutes from Valencia.

Stay: By European standards, lodging in Alcoy is quite reasonable. A room at the Masia la Mota, a 300-year-old villa located within a national park can be had for €100/night. As for securing an invitation to María’s next pool party, you’re on your own.

Eat: The area is renowned for its cuisine, especially fish, shellfish, hearty rice dishes, and stews. Don’t miss Llauna de Calp (fish stew), Putxero amb Pilotes (meatball and vegetable stew), Lubina a la Sal (bass baked in salt), Fideuá (a noodle dish usually made with white-fleshed fish and crustaceans) and of course, Paella.

Drink: Rum soaked watermelon. Mix 1 cup rum with 2 cups fruit juice. Pour into half of a large watermelon. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

Odessa, Ukraine

Go: If you don’t have your own private beach to enjoy, try Chkalovski. Just slightly south of the city center, it offers large sheltering boulders to make your camp behind.

Stay: The Odessa Apartments in Afina Center are cheaper than a hotel and offer a more local experience. Everything is proximal though, so you can't go wrong choosing a different option.

Eat: Alex recommends being a bit adventurous with the menus, “pick out the strangest sounding meal – it always works.” It goes without saying that borscht and varenyky (Ukrainian stuffed dumplings) are a must try.

Drink: The Ukraine is home to a number of craft breweries and brewpubs with hearty lagers. However, for the true Odessa experience, find a truck selling kvass, a traditional Russian beer brewed from bread.
