Nakation News – Turn up, strip off!

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.”

Haulover Beach, Florida, USA

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.

 

 

Sougia, Crete

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.”

 

Do you know of any other nude beaches that are easy to get to? If so, we would love to hear from you!

If any of you have been to these beaches of have stayed in any nudist friendly properties that are close to these please let us know.  I definitely fancy a trip to Sougia this year!

Nakation News – Best Nudist Beaches in Spain

Holidayresources.com have listed their top 15 nude beaches in Spain.  Heres a guide to top 11 on mainland Spain:

1. La Mar Bella, Barcelona

2. Waikiki or Cala Fonda, La Mora, Tarragona

The Bare Beaches book provides the following information on this beach:

“Not one but a couple of pretty naturist coves go by the names of Cala de la Roca Plana and Cala Fonda – often simply referred to as Waikiki.  They are off the beaten track and attract a lively young crowd.  The unspoilt little bays are backed by pinewoods and have great swimming but no lifeguard.  Some buff bathers use the yellow mud on the cliff as a skin toning treatment.  Take your own refreshments and sun shade.

The coves are between Platja Llarga and La Mora.  Take the N340 east out of Tarragona, and in a short distance (near km marker 1168) turn right for Punta de la Mora and follow the signs to Camping Torre de la Mora.  From the approach to the campsite a footpath strikes off to the right, up into the woods and has small guiding arrows.  During the summer months simply follow the other visitors.  The walk to the first cove (Cala de la Roca Plana) is almost a mile.  Cala Fonda is just beyond”.
