Article: Why are nudists such friendly people?


Do you remember your first impression of nudists? Chances are that it was something like “a bunch of naked people hiding behind a huge fence doing stuff the rest of the world shouldn’t see”. But what about your first impression of them at the moment that You became a nudist yourself? The word “relaxed” may come to mind or “polite” or “connected”. And probably also “friendly”. We’ve never met anyone coming back from their first nudie experience saying “Those nudists, what a bunch of self-centric idiots”. Why is that? Is nudism actually a secret club of good people? Or is nudism a gift, only given to good people? Or do people actually become good by being nude?

harvesting coconuts

We harvest coconuts from hundreds of palms on the property. These nuts are them processed into fresh, organic coconut oil for use in the resort's restaurant. It's part of the Magic of Paya!

new trends: forest bathing and nature therapy


According to the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy (yes, “forest therapy” is actually a thing), forest therapy is a “research-based framework for supporting healing and wellness through immersion in forests and other natural environments.” Studies have demonstrated a wide array of health benefits associated with spending time in nature, from lowering cortisol concentrations and blood pressure to improving mood and cognition. Many doctors are even writing “nature prescriptions”, instructing patients to begin spending more time outdoors.

With over 1.5 kilometers of trails through fantastic tropical nature, Paya Bay is perfect place for submerging yourself in the healing power of nature. This is all part of the Magic of Paya!

kids having fun in the surf

I captured these photos of local island kids playing in the surf on the Big Beach at Paya Bay Resort. Kids LOVE this beach because it has a gentle grade into the sea, being relatively shallow as a result, and there are usually fun waves they can body surf in. Paya offers two awesome options: Bliss Beach for the adults and Big Beach for the kids!
