What to pack to comfortably bare all:

  • Good sunglasses so nobody can tell if your eyes linger a little too long;
  • Strong sunscreen (obviously);
  • Clothing that's easy to slide in and out of gracefully (you can start in a bathing suit if you'd like);
  • A big straw bathing mat to give you lots of grit-free sunbathing space;
  • A towel to lay over your bathing mat;
  • A beach umbrella if you're shy;
  • Books, books, lots of great books.
