Gone are the days when you had to trek for half a day to find a secret bare beach. The fantastic Bare Beaches book provides 5 beaches where you won’t sweat getting to:
La Grande Cote, near Royan, France
The Bare Beaches book describes the beach as an “attractive sandy beach popular with families because it is more sheltered and has easy access. Acres of fine light golden sand slope gently into the sea, making it good for skinny dipping in calm weather. The is a sandwich bar serving refreshments on this official bare beach.”
The Nakedplaces.net website refers to the beach as “easily accessible and popular beach [that] draws a mix of nudists and textiles. Although quite spacious, it is more densely populated than nearby Plage de la Côte Sauvage and requires less effort to reach.”

The Bare Beaches book describes the beach as “situated in the south of the ‘sunshine state’, this officially bare sandy beach set in the regional park has a huge following of regular visitors from across the globe. The bare area is more than 800 yards long and has it’s own lifeguard lookout posts. Refreshments are on sale, sunbeds and umbrellas are available to hire. Toilets are located directly behind the beach. The cosmopolitan crowd here often hold impromptu barbecues and at weekends there’s a particularly lively atmosphere.”
Vera Playa, Costa de Almeria
The Bare Beaches states that “this is Spain’s capital of nudism. A long wide beach with a big choice of naturist accommodation nest to it. Great for au natural sunning, walking and skinny dipping.”
The Nakedplaces website states that the formal name of the beach at Vera Playa is Playa del Playazo.
The Bare Beaches book states that “this beach could not be easier to find. Bare bathing is popular and commonplace immediately to the east of Sougia town. The water is excellent for swimming and snorkelling, with safe natural rock pools for children. The beach is small pebbles, fine enough to make it comfortable for sunbathing. There is a happy mix of dress and undress on the beach, although the nude bathers often comfortably outnumber the clothed ones. Further east beyond a rock, is a more secluded area with springs and caves to explore.”
