NudePlaces.com Launches an International Destination Guide for Nudist and Naturist Travelers
by: Company Press Release
(PALM SPRINGS, CA) -- With 2 million hits per month in the first three months of operation, NudePlaces.com has become the leader in a very unique fast growing industry -- it is a directory for sun-seeking travelers looking for clothing-optional resorts, cruises, clubs, nude beaches, private islands and other nudist destinations.
NudePlaces.com is a Web site where users can easily access a searchable database of international nudist destinations, and has become the focal point of the nudist/naturist community.
NudePlaces.com, http://www.nudeplaces.com, founded by Aaron Block and David Block, media designer, is a one-stop shop for everything a traveler could need, from resort and travel information, to an online store with top-quality related products.
``We felt that nudists needed easier access to travel destinations that are clothing-free,'' said Tom Maloney, who joined the team as director of marketing. ``Travel to nude destinations is a fast growing part of the tourism industry.''
More and more, from international beaches and private islands to world-class accommodations, nude places around the world are offering travelers a chance to shed their suit and relax in the sun, naturally. This growing trend boasts a unique clientele whose demographic is an educated, upscale family that travels the world in search of nude beaches and clothing-optional resorts.
While there are many sites that cater to various aspects of clothing optional travel, NudePlaces.com, its founders believe, is the most comprehensive.
``Most of the sites that offer a nudist travel directory were either outdated or not comprehensive in an international sense,'' said Aaron Block, chief executive officer of NPA Inc., the parent company of NudePlaces.com.
NudePlaces.com recently recruited retail veteran Theo Glorie as a director of operations. Glorie is responsible for locating the unique merchandise offered in the NudePlaces Store. ``Advertising on the Internet has become an important source of business for nudist and naturist resorts,'' said Block.
``The average resort receives about 35 percent of its bookings from the Internet and many receive over 80 percent of their new business from the World Wide Web.''
``We have found an exciting niche on the Internet,'' he continued. ``NudePlaces.com is a great asset to the nudist industry.''
