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.

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…

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.

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…

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.

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.

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.

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…

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.

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.

During this research I discovered Zipolite Beach, apparently Mexico’s only naturist beach. And better than that, they’re having a naturist festival at the beginning of February, 2018. There appears to be a website regarding it… Continued…Read full original article…

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…

Why this man thinks more people in Devon should get naked
“There are times when clothing is uncomfortable and unnecessary – nudity is often far more practical.”

A national advocate for open nudity has spoken about why he thinks the attitude to being naked needs to change.

Peter Wright, 64, a legal volunteer for the British Naturism group, got in touch after reading several stories about naked people on DevonLive last week.

They included reports of a man spotted walking naked down Exeter High Street and a couple who were caught having sex in a field in Holsworthy.

But Peter has told devonlive.com that he believes public nudity should be more acceptable. Continued…Read full original article…

OPINION: ‘Open letter to the mayor and councillors’
I must query their claim of representing the ‘majority who ruled against the nudist beach’

I see from local newspapers that the five holy men and other ‘concerned citizens’ have saved the Lower South Coast from ‘moral and social decay’ and also saved thousands of litres of water due to busloads of naturists that will not be visiting during December.

While this win-win result is highly commendable, I must query their claim of representing the ‘majority who ruled against the nudist beach’ because these holy men speak TO their congregations and not FOR them. Continued…Read full original article…

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…
