Iran, Qeshm island, rocks
Qeshm is the largest island in Iran. Good wild beaches can be found almost along the entire southern coast. So you don't need a bikini beach. There are many spots, where it is possible to swim naked. You have just to look around sometimes. However, the main island's attractions are numerous freaky canyons, as well as the ancient Portuguese fort. / read more » /

Iran, Hormuz island, Red beach
Hormuz is a small Iranian island in the Strait of Hormuz. This is not the best place for a beach holiday, though you can swim almost everywhere. Most of the coast is absolutely wild, so bikini is not a problem (just watch around). But the main attractions are the Portuguese fort, the red coastal sands, the valley of colored hills, but not limited to the listed. There is also good fishing on the island. / read more » /
