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.
