Ågesta Nudist Beach
Sweden is well-known for its relaxed attitude to nudity, but this doesn’t mean you can just get naked anywhere you please. But if you are looking for somewhere to go clothes-free Sweden has around 70 naturist beaches, including the wonderful Ågesta beach just outside of Stockholm.
Ågesta nude beach is an officially designated beach and is maintained by the Eos Naturist Association (Naturistföreningen EOS). This means that not only is the beach well looked after, with good basic facilities, but that there are certain rules which visitors should adhere to. The most obvious of these is that you should strip off completely with only sun hats and footwear being acceptable. Anything more is very much frowned upon.
The beach is generally open between May and September for the simple reason that it gets a little chilly to be out without the rest of the year.
As well as a small area of sand on the lakeside there is a good sized lawn behind. Here you will find a shower, picnic benches, a barbecue area and public bathroom.
The waters of Lake Magelungen are perfect for swimming in and the shallow shoreline is very child-friendly. If you want to dive straight into the deeper water, there is a bathing pier and an offshore bathing platform.
Ågesta beach is about 15 km south of Stockholm and can be reached relatively quickly by car and within an hour on public transport.
