Key Largo or Lower Largo: make no mistake, but swimming in the sea can be fun in both places – comment by a Scotsman
Some confused, shivering and naked tourists might just turn up on Fife village beach for a ‘wild swim’ – as it’s now called, or, as it used to be called, ‘swim’ – in the North Sea . It would be quite a different experience than expected, based on popular perceptions of Florida weather, but not necessarily bad.
We have to explain that Lower Largo, one of two places newly designated as official bathing waters, is listed in The Beach Guide as suitable for naturists. We’re sure our imaginary visitors wouldn’t have thrown away their clothes for no reason.
Scottish beach where swimmers can bare back joins official bathing waters
For decades, some people in Scotland have become so accustomed to holidays in the sun that the waters there are considered too cold by comparison. But not so long ago, we didn’t think about it.
Luckily, the wild swim trend is helping us rediscover its health benefits and the pleasure of having some time. So if they show up, we hope these lost nudists return home with rave reviews of the cool, refreshing waters found in far North Florida.
