Would you like to be in the sun and the water without any clothes? Norway's coast is 25 km if one includes all the fjords. Sweden's coastline is calculated to be about km, in addition there are about lakes and km rivers. All this provides plenty opportunities to swim or be in the sun with or without clothes.
Swedes are a very polite, considerate people. Even when it comes to stripping down to their birthday suit. They may be more liberal than many other nationalities, but there are rules of etiquette. Getting naked isn't always okay. And of course you should always be naked in the sauna.
By Terri Mapes. Scandinavians are an open-minded lot, and this includes Swedes. This means you'll find a number of nude beaches or topless sunbathers throughout the country.
While in Sweden it is not illegal to have sex in a public place, the law says people should be hidden from view. Because the nude beach in Laholm is near a preschool and a camping ground, the municipality proposed moving the borders of the clothing-free zone. But while nudist beaches are gaining a reputation for being prime spots for outdoor sex, Christer Nilsson, spokesperson for the Swedish Naturist Federation, says that nudists, or naturists, are not especially inclined towards taking part in sex acts in public. He says serious naturists disassociate themselves from all forms of sexual activity on beaches.
