Bay of Plenty naturists enjoy a gathering at Papamoa beach in the Bay of Plenty in April 2012. The bear flag is used by naturists to alert other beach users that there are naked people in the vicinity. Since the 1970s it has been generally accepted that many beaches or parts of beaches are 'clothes optional'.
