A Beach In Sanya For Those With “Skin Diseases”
Nude beaches are pretty uncommon in China, if only for the fact that beaches here are always packed with people, most of whom, surely, have no desire to see any choads. But a tourist in Sanya, Hainan province (the “Hawaii of the East”), Tian Ma, recently found himself looking in at a nudist resort — a cleverly disguised one — and thought what anyone would think: picture time! He stealthily took the images above and after the jump and posted them on his blog, Tian Ma Topics.
First, this sign explains about all you need to know about the beach:
How, then, do people know this is a place to dress way down? Tian Ma writes that the beach is advertised as a treatment for “skin diseases” — like clothes. (A treatment for clothes, I mean.) The day he went, 50 to 60 people were there, naked, around noon. There were at least three foreigners, probably Russian. All were unabashed. Looks like a veritable nudist resort, to say nothing of hideaway.
Here, three more pictures (the sloppy censoring job is not mine). More pictures are on Tian Ma’s site, if that’s what you’re after. (H/T Alicia)
