The car plummeted from one of Britain’s steepest roads on to Sillery Sands, a secluded north Devon beach popular with naked sunbathers in summer.

The shaken motorist managed to clamber up to some holiday flats to raise the alarm.

Paramedics, police and more than 20 firefighters rushed to the scene.

An RNLI lifeboat crew was also scrambled to join other rescuers in case anyone else had been in the vehicle.

Devon and Cornwall Police incident manager Tony Joslin said: “It looks like the driver has had a pretty miraculous escape. The damage to the vehicle is extensive. Continued…Read full original article…

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.

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…

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…

What it feels like: Irish naturist (50) on why she’s happier with her clothes off – even in the snow
With Ireland due to get its first official nudist-friendly beach, Hazel Newton (50) from Cork reveals what the news means to her and why she’s happier with her clothes off – even in the snow

It was about 15 years ago when I had an epiphany. I was on holiday in Greece and there was the opportunity to go out on a boat and watch the moon rise over the mountains. It was beautiful, there was phosphorescence in the water and another lady, who had brought her swimming togs, got in to swim.

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.

Irish Naturist Association chief Pat Gallagher explained: “Every other country in Europe has these kind of signs.

“It is a milestone for ­Ireland.”

The INA is in talks with a ­number of local authorities about getting similar signage placed at other beaches giving nude bathers the thumbs up.

The sign at Dalkey is flagged to be put up this month and comes following recent changes in the law which means that in-the-nip bathers are not doing anything illegal. Continued…Read full original article…

Byron’s nude beach gets stay of execution

Byron Shire Councillors voted at last Thursday’s meeting to continue a trial of changed conditions at the shire’s only official nude beach at Tyagarah but emphasised there was no guarantee the beach would remain clothing optional in the longer term

Es de baja ocupación y normalmente hay dos o tres puntos de máxima concentración , el extremo más próximo a Carboneras en el que encuentras caravanas y pescadores básicamente, a pie del hotel donde encuentras bañistas textiles y en el extremo más alejado del pueblo (más próximo al sopalmo) donde se encuentra la zonanudista.

Vlaamse internationaal vermaarde pianist veroordeeld voor opnames met camerabril in nudistenkamp
In Bordeaux is een Vlaming veroordeeld tot 5.000 euro boete nadat hij in een nudistenvakantiepark vrouwen had gefilmd. In Amerika is de man een ­gerenommeerde ­pianist en ­orkestleider. Kristof V.G. (45, foto links) zelf zegt dat er een vergissing in het spel moet zijn. “Ik ben al vier jaar niet meer in Frankrijk ­geweest.”

Terwijl zijn gezin een uitstapje maakt, koopt V.G. zichzelf een dagticketje voor het naturistisch vakantiepark. De feiten spelen zich af in de ­zomer van 2017 in La Jenny, ten westen van Bordeaux. In zijn bril zit een camera verstopt waarmee hij urenlang de vrouwen in het park filmt.

“Hij liep vreemd rond, soms scannend, soms ging hij gericht achter anderen aan”, klonk het gisteren bij de rechter. Dat vreemde gedrag en de te grote bril op zijn neus trokken de aandacht van de nudisten en een badmeester. Ze spraken hem aan en vonden de camera. Op de beelden bleek dat hij één vrouw zelfs een hele tijd gevolgd had. Omdat ­anderen filmen op de camping verboden is, moest hij voor de rechter komen. De opnames heeft hij wel nooit openbaar gemaakt. Continued…Read full original article…

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…

“And I started wandering if there was a nude beach in the area.”

Not finding one, he decided that he would start his own. Continued…Read full original article…
