NUDE AWAKENING! Good Morning Britain’s competition thrown into chaos as Andi Peters spots a nudist on the beach behind him
The presenter got the giggles thanks to someone sunbathing with their kit off on the beach

ANDI Peters was left in hysterics today as he attempted to promote a competition while a nudist sunbathed behind him.

The Good Morning Britain presenter was on the beach in Lloret de mar, Spain to tell viewers all about their latest giveaway.

Andi found it very funny as he tried to present

But he struggled to keep a straight face thanks to the naked person soaking up the sun behind him.

He told those watching at home: “The reason I am grinning – hopefully I am standing in exactly the right place to block the nudist who is right behind me.

“Yes, that’s right there is a nudist. Look.”

He then ducked down as an emoji appeared to cover the naked sun worshipper. Continued…Read full original article…

Lorca beach acquires official nudist status as of 1st June
Cala Junquera is a picturesque cove on rocky coastline of Lorca

The Spanish Naturism Federation lists as many as 10 nudist beaches in the municipality of Lorca, including, rather surprisingly, the Playa de Puntas de Calnegre, which is backed by a row of beachfront restaurants, but in terms of official Town Hall designation it is only as of 1st June 2018 that the first nudist beach in Lorca is officially recognized.

After much deliberation, the beach decided on is Cala Junquera, one of a series of small coves at the foot of the rugged cliffs and rocks which constitute the lower slopes of the mountains of the Loma de Bas. This location provides some spectacular backdrops from Puntas de Calnegre in the north-east, on the boundary with Mazarrón, to Playa Larga, which is very close to the municipality of Águilas in the south-west.

Carbis Bay Hotel development labelled ‘Benidorm’ as latest plans are submitted
The development at the privately owned beach has been ongoing for years and is now nearing completion

A huge multi-million pound waterside development is making Cornwall ‘look like Benidorm’, it has been claimed.

New images of the building work at the beach area at Carbis Bay have been posted online, provoking a backlash amongst furious locals.

The 125-acre estate, which is already home to the luxury Carbis Bay Hotel, a range of self-catering properties, a privately-owned 25-acre Blue Flag beach, two restaurants and award-winning spa facilities, will soon welcome eight luxury beach lodges and a new 15,185 sq ft multi-use venue to the collection.

Hotel bosses said the new complex overlooking one of Cornwall ‘s most beautiful beaches and stretches of coastline would create up to 60 jobs for the local economy.

The two and three-storey beach lodges with rooftop or beach gardens and hot tubs are expected to be ready for guests in July, followed by completion of the ocean suites, an extensive events venue and dining and retail facilities towards the end of 2018. Continued…Read full original article…

Irish nudists plan to kick BUTT this World No Tobacco Day by gathering on Wicklow beach to fight cigarette-ends problem
Birthday suit buffs will gather on a beach near Brittas to attack the rubbish issue

IRISH nudists plan to kick BUTT this morning for World No Tobacco Day.

Birthday suit buffs, who recently celebrated the awarding of a skinny dip spot, will gather on a beach near Brittas, Co Wicklow, to fight the fag-ends problem.

Dare to bare: 15 of the world’s best nude beaches

Although still taboo in many places, casting aside your clothes at the shore has become a customary practice around the world in recent times.
From rocky coastlines to talcum powder fine sands, and big city bays to secluded shores, there are now hundreds of beaches where it’s perfectly legal (or at least de facto legal) to sunbathe, swim and otherwise frolic beside the sea in nothing more than your birthday suit.

“Soft, smooth sand, warm ocean breeze, gentle ocean waves and lots of other naturists makes for a great clothing-optional beach,” says Nicky Hoffman of The Naturist Society, who’s also the managing editor of Nude & Natural magazine and co-author of “The World’s Best Nude Beaches & Resorts.”

While clothing-optional beach destinations may seem like a modern invention, it’s actually quite an old idea, a product of the otherwise prudish Victorian era. Continued…Read full original article…

Vera destina 6 eurillos al día para el cuidado de sus 6 km de playa
El alcalde Félix López aplica un recorte del 97% en el presupuesto para el mantenimiento y reparación de la playa.

Veraplayazul lamenta que el consistorio tire por la borda el desarrollo turístico, acuciado por los vertidos y la negligencia municipal.

El tijeretazo coincide con la pérdida de la única bandera azul que ondeaba en el municipio.

El Ayuntamiento de Vera se ha vuelto a superar al suprimir de un plumazo el gasto para la reparación y mantenimiento de sus playas. De los ya escasos 65.000 euros presupuestados para 2018 ha decidido recortar 62.740, con lo que dedicará al cuidado de sus 6 kilómetros de playa la ridícula cantidad anual de 2.260 euros, un 97% menos de lo aprobado. Esto es, el consistorio veratense se gastará 6 euros al día para mantener en buen estado sus 6 kilómetros de playa que, en algunos tramos, supera los cien metros de ancho y de ahí que se la conozca como El Playazo.

La falta de limpieza del agua y la falta de mantenimiento en la playa es cuanto menos preocupante.
La falta de limpieza del agua y la falta de mantenimiento en la playa es cuanto menos preocupante.

Aprobado en el pleno del 19 de abril, el tijeretazo demuestra el interés del equipo de Gobierno de Vera y de su alcalde Félix López por sus vecinos tanto del interior como del litoral, pues representa un duro varapalo al desarrollo turístico, verdadero motor de la economía local.

La asociación Veraplayazul, conformada por 10.000 vecinos de 18 urbanizaciones, considera el hachazo una provocación dado el olvido y la negligencia municipal en el litoral. Tal y como ha denunciado repetidamente Veraplayazul, la limpieza de la arena brilla por su ausencia, ya que el Ayuntamiento o sus empresas concesionarias se limitan a rastrillar, enterrando la basura hasta que, como es obvio, vuelve a resurgir; las pasarelas de acceso de madera están siempre rotas y las de hormigón están pensadas para el beneficio de empresas privadas; la calidad de los aseos y duchas es muy mejorable, así como el cuidado de los jardines, aceras y calles, la iluminación y la seguridad en todo el litoral veratense.

Foz restringirá el acceso de perros, limitará el nudismo y prohibirá el botellón en las playas
El Concello plantea prohibir acampar y usar gel para bañarse en el mar, y multará a quien abandone sombrillas o hamacas

El Concello de Foz se compromete a prestar servicios, pero los ciudadanos deben saber que también tienen una serie de obligaciones a la hora de usar las playas. Tras una consulta a asociaciones, el Ayuntamiento somete ahora a la opinión ciudadana el proyecto de la futura ordenanza reguladora de uso y disfrute de los arenales. Los interesados en plantear su rechazo, proponer sugerencias o introducir mejoras tienen de plazo hasta el día 14 para hacer sus aportaciones.

Playas libres, públicas y gratuitas, pero en las que será necesario cumplir normas. El borrador de la ordenanza contempla que será preceptiva la autorización municipal para realizar cursos de surf, windsurf, kitesurf, piragüismo… y solo se permitirán fuera de zonas de baño, en zonas debidamente señalizadas. De aprobarse la norma, no se permitirá el uso de altavoces de aparatos de música y, a excepción de las embarcaciones de salvamento, se prohibirá en temporada de baño y en zonas de baño la navegación deportiva y de recreo, la pesca desde embarcación y la submarina. «Na beira, prohíbese a pesca desde as 10.00 ata as 21.00 horas, ambas inclusive, en evitación de daños», recoge el borrador. La ordenanza contempla la prohibición de la venta ambulante, la de ducharse con gel o champú en el mar o la de lavar utensilios de cocina en las duchas. Continued…Read full original article…

Councillors discuss nude bathing and ‘meercats’ on Papamoa beach

The practices of nude sunbathing and “meercatting” on a notorious section of Papamoa beach has been discussed in a council meeting this afternoon.

Tauranga City Council’s community and culture committee was considering a reviewed Beaches Bylaw.

Staff had elected not to include anything in the bylaw about nudity on the beach, but councillors said it was an issue that residents regularly raised with them.

Mount Maunganui/Papamoa ward councillor Steve Morris said residents had spoken to him about an area of Papamoa Beach which had historically been known for nude sunbathing.

It’s understood the area he was referring to was off Sandhurst Drive. The beach, near the junction of Maranui St and Papamoa Beach Rd, has been enjoyed by nudists for decades. Continued…Read full original article…

The naturist trail: ‘Once you try it, there’s no going back’
Pat Gallagher, president of the Irish Naturist Association, and his wife, Mary, are among the few in Ireland willing to speak publicly about the lifestyle. They started off by accident, says Pat

You might think that nudists would be fairly visible and easy to track down. Isn’t there a latent exhibitionism in casting your clothes to the wind and stepping out mother-naked into the sunshine? An out-and-proud statement of personal freedom? But when I set out to find them, it turns out that many Irish naturists are keen to keep their identities, if not their bodies, firmly under wraps, and at least some of them are as slippery as eels.

A prospective encounter with a secret group of nudists from north Co Antrim looks promising until it becomes clear that the price of meeting them was the surrender of my own clothes, in the interests of creating “a level playing field”.

“Go on: dare to bare,” they repeatedly urge me. When I decline, pleading a preference for private nudity – I have no problem leaping naked into the surf on a remote Donegal beach, and have done so, but I don’t want anyone else around to watch me do it – the trail suddenly goes cold.

Naturist activities in Connaught, Ireland

I must admit that when I was first approached to put something in print about naturism in Galway I honestly did not know where to start. Naturism is around us, wherever we wish to find the opportunity. For me my home and my back garden present the ideal opportunities and as a result I spend most of my time nude. That is very easy for me, my house and garden are relatively private and being a naturist all of my life I am not really too upset if a neighbour just happens to see me from a distance from an upstairs bedroom window or whatever. I have lived in my present house for almost fifteen years and nobody has thus far objected or complained.

However most naturists are not as lucky as I and do not have the privacy. So how and where do they do to get that all over tan for themselves! They must travel to discrete and secluded places to enjoy their recreation and freedom. The Galway coastline is a rugged one, being constantly battered by the Atlantic Ocean. As a result the coast is in the main a rocky one and to a great extent devoid of sand. Those sandy areas that do exist are, in comparison to those on the sheltered eastern coast, small short stretches. However we also have numerous lakes that are suitable for naturism and nude recreation and I shall include these as well, ones that I have tried out on occasions.

La fortuna de ser nudista en España

Hay quien cree que el nudismo en nuestro país es una práctica en declive. Que cada vez se ven menos jóvenes, o que hay un retroceso legal con ordenanzas municipales como las que lo prohíben en Cádiz para sus playas urbanas (avalada por el Tribunal Supremo) o en San Pedro del Pinatar en todo su territorio. Puede ser cierto, pero…

Pero hay que poner las cosas en su contexto:

Elige un punto del litoral español. Cualquiera. Y comprobarás que, en una distancia no mayor de media hora en coche, puedes encontrar una playa de uso nudista. Me atrevo a decir que esto no sucede en ningún otro país del mundo, ni siquiera en Croacia, que desde hace décadas entiende que el turismo nudista-naturista como un nicho importante de negocio y lo promociona de manera preferente. Mi experiencia personal buscando playas nudistas en países como Portugal, Grecia o Italia confirma que, fuera de España, es mucho más difícil. En lugares como Menorca, Fuerteventura o el levante almeriense, de hecho, las playas y calas donde desnudarse son mayoría. En el interior, la cosa cambia; hay algunas áreas en pantanos y ríos “de tradición nudista”, pero son escasas, escondidas y claramente minoritarias. Continued…Read full original article…

Popular beach in Cornwall has a very intriguing secret most tourists miss completely – and it’s only revealed at low tide
Crantock Beach in Cornwall has a secret that’s become the stuff of legends with locals, but it only becomes obvious at low tide

Crantock Beach in Cornwall has long been a hit with visitors for its sandy shores and swimming-friendly waters.

However, the far side of the beach is home to a host of small caves hidden amongst the rocks that you could easily miss if you didn’t know to look out for them – and they hold an intriguing secret.

The caves are only accessible during the low tide, but those who make the trip will discover a series of intricate carvings that have become the stuff of local legend.

Etched into the walls are carvings of the outline of a horse, the close-up of a woman’s face, and a pretty love poem that reads, “Mar not my face by let me be/Secure in this lone cavern by the sea/Let the wild waves around me roar/Kissing my lips for evermore”.

A Kiniki Experience With Holly – Before and After

I’m in Olon, Ecuador waiting for another walk along the beach. It hasn’t exactly been the sunniest time I’ve spent along the Pacific Ocean, so it is hard to tell at this point just how well my Kiniki [tan through] bathing attire will work out when I am on a public beach. I’ve written previously about the bathing suits I bought to replace my previous briefs that definitely didn’t allow any sun to colour the private areas.

She graciously provided me with an image of her bathing suit before use, and another post-use which is also included in this post. Now, the whole idea that we need to own such a bathing suit is beyond ridiculous. Since more than 99.99% of the population has either a male or female body [I’m not talking about gender identity which is a completely different matter] there is nothing to be seen that isn’t as common as a grain of sand when clothing is set aside.

This Gold Coast nude blogger says she gets body shamed for being thin
Her body-positive Instagram feed hasn’t stopped the haters from hating.

There’s no arguing that we live in a social media world.

After registering, nude dudes – who can be of any gender – must fundraise a certain amount – $300 for individuals and $1000 for groups of up to four – to make the cut for the R18 birthday suit 100m splash in the surf.

Only those competing will be given access to the beach, and there will be no spectators allowed.

The swim will be a fundraiser for Tauranga’s Breast Cancer Support Service, which provides emotional and practical support for women with breast cancer and their families, and receives no government funding. Continued…Read full original article…

The Popularity of Naturism in Spain Keeps Growing
All over Europe, more than 20 million people engage in naturism, or naturist tourism. Without having Spain as a competitor, countries such as Germany, France and Greece have made their way to the top of the list of naturist destinations. While in these countries there exists a more deep-rooted tradition, this type of tourism didn’t arrive in Spain until 1975 and its exploitation was paralyzed 10 years after it began. Naturism in Spain is lagging behind but it is developing fast.

According to a study conducted by “Hosteltur”, more than 30 000 people routinely engage in naturism in Spain and more than 500 000 do so occasionally. Despite the large number of interested people, the scarceness of offerings in Spain cannot keep up with the demand for naturist destinations.

The President of the Spanish Naturism Federation (FEM), Ismael Rodrigo, believes that the problem lies in an inadequate advocacy of naturism. “There are camping grounds, hotels and urbanizations geared towards naturists, but it has been months since these places have had any vacancies,” he explained.

Rodrigo would like to see entrepreneurs overcome the taboo of naturism. Society needs to understand that naturism goes beyond clothing. It is a lifestyle which, although it continues to be frowned upon by some, has ceased to be a mere exercise and has been transformed into an ideology which is shared by many people and which does not necessarily require practicing nudism.

To celebrate, the Byron Naturists group will hold a sports and social day on the beach this coming Sunday, December 3, weather permitting.

Chief Inspector Luke Arthurs told Echonetdaily that police had ramped up patrols of the beach following the installation of the signage on November 3, and it appeared to be having dividends. Continued…Read full original article…

Anécdotas
Vacaciones en un camping nudista

Jose (19/11/2017)

Hola, me llamo Jose, vivo en el País Vasco y tengo 42 años.

Desde hace doce o trece años hago nudismo, sobre todo en playas del País Vasco (en Azkorri) y de Cantabria (sobre todo en Noja).

Cada vez soy más “adicto” al nudismo y ya no concibo unas vacaciones de verano sin ir a un alojamiento nudista y este verano de 2017 he probado en un camping naturista del Sur de España y la experiencia me ha encantado.

Estuve diez días e hizo bueno todos los días excepto uno de ellos. El camping en el que estuve tiene acceso directo a una playa nudista y también dispone de piscina nudista, así que cada día por la mañana y por la tarde iba un rato a la playa y luego a la piscina a darme un baño. Lo que se echa de menos es que el/la socorrista no esté desnudo/a, como todos los demás. Incluso el animador se metió con bañador en la piscina, lo que, desde mi punto de vista, no tiene ningún sentido. En otra urbanización nudista donde estuve, el animador sí que se desnudaba completamente para meterse en la pisicina.

Lo mejor de la playa es que es nudista al 100%. Creo que no vi a nadie vestido en la playa y eso se agradece. Además, había bastante gente joven, sobre todo parejas, tanto de chica y chico como de chicos. Incluso hay un restaurante nudista al que se accede desde la playa y desde el camping. Poder comer desnudo con vistas al mar es realmente muy agradable. Continued…Read full original article…

A guide to Ireland’s nudist beaches and nine places naturists can sunbathe in the nip
BACK in 2014, Ireland hosted the 34th International Naturist Congress in Drumshanbo. People from all over the world headed for Co. Leitrim — needless to say, if they had nothing on.

The Congress aimed to raise public awareness of nudity and discussed all aspects of naturism — including the contribution the nudist movement might make to the Irish economy. The Irish Naturist Association pointed out the naked truth: the nudism industry is worth several millions to the economies of the likes of France and Spain, where naturist beaches are common.

The congress also discussed the fact that public nudity remains technically against the law in Ireland. It’s an illegal act with a long history. In 1929 a fairly anodyne publication for naturists called Health & Efficiency — featuring naked people in anything but titillating poses — became the very first publication to be banned by the Irish Free State.

Balance de playas-temporada 2017

Fieles a nuestra cita anual y una vez finalizada la amplia temporada(mayo-octubre), volvemos con nuestro balance que en esta ocasión alcanza su tercera edición. Aparte de las fichas específicas de cada playa(que acompañamos junto a cada una de ellas), a través de la actualización post temporada os traemos la actualidad que acontece en cada una de ellas.

En cuanto a lo meteorológico, podemos decir que ha sido una temporada más o menos normal, principalmente en cuanto al viento de levante se refiere, sobre todo si la comparamos con la temporada anterior donde constituyó una clara incomodidad, soplando con las ganas que lo hace algunas temporadas y que como decimos en esta nos ha respetado.

Aunque en todas las localizaciones promocionadas por nosotros no existe problema alguno de masificación o incomodidad, bien es verdad que el tráfico sigue siendo un problema en cuanto al acceso y aparcamiento, sobre todo los fines de semana en las playas de Bolonia y Cañuelo, llegándose incluso a cortar el acceso desde el cruce de la carretera N-340. Y es que la fama de Tarifa tiene sus consecuencias, aunque solo sea en la práctica entre el 20 de julio y el 20 de agosto. Por estos motivos nosotros no contabilizamos ninguna visita a Cañuelo y Bolonia en todo el mes de agosto. Continued…Read full original article…
