This is a list of social nudity places in South America used for recreation.

Nude beaches[edit]

This list includes topfree beaches, clothing-optional beaches (or nude beaches) and some resorts. Topfree beaches allow women to sunbathe without a bikini top or other clothing above the waist. Clothing-optional beaches allow either sex to sunbathe with or without clothing above or below the waist. A nude beach may also be an obligatory nude area, which means that both sexes are obliged to go without clothing above as well as below the waist.



Family in Brazil, Praia do Abricó.

Public nudity is a misdemeanor in Brazil, except in places officially designated by the local authority.
