Why I Went to a Nude Beach in Greece, and Why You Should Too

I stand at the top of a cliff looking over the Mediterranean Sea on the island of Agistri in Greece.

I’ve just hiked and “scrambled” (a new hiker’s term I learned for this experience — when the hill is too steep to walk normally, but not quite extreme enough to qualify as rock climbing) my way up a narrow, rocky path through the pine forest, with no map to guide me but the ocean on my left telling me I’m heading the right way.

I’ve reached my destination. Below me is a hidden beach nestled between the sheer cliffs, and sunbathing on it are roughly twenty or thirty naturists, also known as nudists.

Greece borders the Mediterranean Sea and has many beaches.

An old, fully clothed man is sitting in a lawn chair a little way away from me on the rocks, and as I squint at the cliffs trying to spot a path down to the beach, he yells something in Greek and gestures for me to come over to where he is.

“Milate Anglika?” I ask as I approach; it means “Do you speak English?”

“No English,” he says, but gestures to his eyes indicating that he is going to show me something. I join him at the cliff edge and he points out a steep path around the rocky outcropping below us that leads to the shore.

“Efcharisto!” It means thank you, and I am so grateful I do prayer hands and bow my head too.

As I start to leave for the path, he calls after me and starts speaking in Greek again and pointing to his lower calves and then to my hiking shoes. I have no idea what this could mean, and I don’t know enough Greek to ask him, so I just pretend to understand and assume I’ll figure it out as I go.

Nadia Sawalha praised for defiant nude snaps as she goes skinny dipping on family holiday

Nadia Sawalha has been praised after she went skinny dipping in a defiant show against low body self-esteem while on holiday in Greece this week.

The Loose Women presenter jumped into the pool nude and couldn’t believe she’d made the plunge as she shared snaps to Instagram.

Holding her boobs in the blue water, the 54-year-old appeared to be completely naked – either that or wearing a pair of nude briefs in the pool.

But it was the message of her dip that has inspired many.

‘Whole next level in body confidence for me!!! I can’t believe it but I only swam flaming naked in the flaming pool today !!! This has never happened!! #liberating,’ she wrote over the weekend.

‘Poor @mark_adderley‘s eyes nearly popped out of his head!! He literally squeaked ‘your naked ‘ [sic]😂😂😂 and then took these snaps! God it felt good to swim totally free!!

‘I’m not going to lie I would love to say I leapt out and pranced around the pool but in truth I nearly drowned trying to get my bikini back on IN the pool!! Not quite ready to haul myself up the steps in my birthday suit!!! Maybe next year eh girls!!’

She continued: ‘God why oh why are us Brits so hung up about nudity?! It’s been the bane of my life!

Couple quit high-flying jobs to set up naked resort in Mediterranean
A BRITISH couple have ditched their careers to set up a naturist resort in Greece.

While some Mediterranean destinations are seeing a dip in tourism due to the uncertainty of Brexit, that’s not the case for Mark and Sam Taylor.

The couple’s naked ambition shocked family and friends when they first launched their surprising venture over a decade ago.

Fortunately for the duo, their naturist resort has paid off and they have grown a loyal customer base over the years.

So far this year they have an unprecedented occupancy rate of 84% and are still taking bookings from Brits who prefer to go naked for their holidays.

Mark, 47, said: “We are aware that the tourism trade has been hit by Brexit but this is our busiest year ever.

“The vast majority of those customers are repeat bookings. We’ve had regulars that have come back every year since we started.”

5 Tips For Going Nude In Greece
If you’ve been following us via this blog or on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter during the last months, you probably noticed that we’ve spent a lot of time in Greece. A real necessity, even if we only wanted to get the slightest impression of the country. When you look at the country on the map, it doesn’t seem very big. Its size is roughly the same as Austria and Switzerland combined and a bus ride from one side to the other rarely takes more than several hours. What people tend to forget (well, at least we did) is that Greece has over 6000 islands. It’s like the Japan of Europe, but with better options for the nudies.

We don’t want to call ourselves a reference for nudism in Greece, even though we’ve spent a lot of time in the country, we know that we’ve only seen a fraction of it. But from our experiences we’re sure that we can give you some valuable tips when it comes to getting naked.

Embrace clothing optional

Although Greece is a popular holiday destination for nudists, it doesn’t have a decent nudist organisation or any nudist clubs and only a handful of nudist resorts, villas or camps. So if you only like to be naked among the nude, your options are limited to one of those places. Even though one could easily spend two weeks inside Vassaliki resort and wish there were two weeks more to come, you’ll miss out on a lot of the fun. Continued…Read full original article…

Getting naked in Messinia, Greece

As the end of the summer, and thus the end if the naturist season as well, in Greece was fastly approching, we had to evaluate our options for the next ten to fifteen days. Our main plan was actually to head north, in the direction of Thessaloniki and try our luck for finding some last Greek nude beaches over there, but then our eye fell on an entry in our Google search saying Kalokeri Villas. Well, it was mostly the word “villas” that got our intention because we had no idea what “Kalokeri” means (meanwhile we know that it means “summer holiday”) and a villa was a type of accommodation that we still had to cross from our list.

So we went back the same way we had come only weeks ago, we’d been to north Peloponnese, east and south-east Peloponnese, but for some unexplainable reason we never considerd visiting the south-west of the peninsula. Until now. Continued…Read full original article…

Getting naked on Paros, Greece

From our Naked Wanderings Cyclade Islands Basecamp on Antiparos it was only a fifteen minute ferry ride to the neighboring and much bigger island Paros. So on a nice Sunday morning we woke up early, walked to the scooter rental shop, went through some useless price negotiations and ended up with a black and blue 50cc beast.

Only minutes later we embarked on the ferry with high expectations. If we had been able to find such a nice range of nudie places on a small island like Antiparos, what would it be on its bigger brother?
We have to warn you, this is not a happy story. Continued…Read full original article…

Single Women’s View

Many women travel alone nowadays, myself included, but going on holiday solo is different. Will I be bored? Will I get lonely? Will I relax and enjoy myself (which after all, is the whole point of a holiday!)? All these questions and more rattle around in our heads, as we try to make a decision. Or they certainly did in mine. The strong, independent, 21st century woman in me was shouting “Yes! Do it!” and finally that voice won out.

So one Tuesday last August, I found myself strapped into an Easyjet seat on my way to Kefalonia in the Greek Islands, land of Captain Corelli and his oh so famous Mandolin, and my destination of choice, Vassiliki Naturist Resort. Now I have understated just how complex my decision making process was and it included an internet tour of every naturist resort in the Mediterranean. For the last few years, having dabbled in naturism in the UK, I had promised myself a proper naturist holiday. Admittedly, I hadn’t anticipated going alone, but following the break-up of my relationship, it was that or nothing. And I was determined that being alone wasn’t going to stop me.

To cut a potentially long story short, I finally settled on Vassiliki Naturist Resort. Their website kept luring me back with promises of naturist sailing and massage and days by the pool. The owners, Mark and Sam, sounded sociable and provide weekly barbecues, nights out to a local taverna, a few options that I thought might allow me to get to know some of the other guests.
