Some Wreck Beach regulars recoiled when they first saw the 10-foot-tall structure appear near their beloved shores in February.

“Shock doesn’t even begin to describe it, but anger does,” said Judy Williams, of the Wreck Beach Preservation Society.

“They are messing with the viewscape that people come to this city to see.” 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

Enjoying a bit of fun in the sun are some naturists relaxing at the clothes-optional beach, Tyagarah.

A spokesperson for the local naturist group told public access that the current trial, which was originally slated for three months but has continued for five, had been a success in clearing out seamy sex abusers whose presence on the beach had increasingly riled beachgoers and local residents.

She called for the beach’s clothing optional status to be confirmed, following the erection of signage, daily police patrols and a range of initiatives by her group. Continued…Read full original article…

Free Beaches NZ president Mike Ward has been swimming nude for the last four decades, and says naturists have happily flocked to Waiheke Island beaches for the last 30 years.

“Once you have tried it, you really can’t go back to the idea that wearing togs is anything like a sensible thing,” he told RadioLIVE on Thursday. Continued…Read full original article…

Mr Kelly denies ever being a naturist, but since moving to Hay Point about six months ago the sea change has him thinking about some personal changes too.

“I was walking around the unit here with no clothes on feeling quite comfortable,” Mr Kelly said.

“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…

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…

Bates Beach nude section reestablished
Bates Beach is nude again (with conditions) thanks to long-term efforts of SCNA & Friends of Bates Beach

North Rincon Beach (locally known as Bates Beach, named after the beach’s access from Bates Rd.) is at the southern tip of Santa Barbara County, just north of Rincon Point.

The beach was once a safe, family-friendly environment that attracted several hundred people on summer weekends. On the convenient eastern end, people in bathing suits came to exercise their dogs and watch the world-class surfers practice their skills. The more remote western end served many people who enjoyed a clothing-optional beach experience. These traditional uses of the beach served the public well for over 40 years

Beach tourists ate at local restaurants, stayed in local hotels, and brought in estimated half-million dollars into the local Carpinteria economy. A cooperative attitude worked well for the local community and allowed law enforcement officials to focus on significant incidents.

In 1977, in response to complaints of inappropriate behavior at several other nearby nude beaches, the county passed an ordinance banning public nudity throughout Santa Barbara. The law was used to close most of the beaches to nude use, except Bates, which continued on with few problems for another 20 years. Cont…Read full original article…

Hurricane Irma Wrecks Caribbean Islands and Club Orient Resort

Though many parts of Florida were bracing for the worst from Hurricane Irma this weekend, the storm seems to have caused the most damage to a number of Caribbean islands last week. This includes the island of St. Martin, where at least nine people died and Dutch officials said 70% of homes were damaged or destroyed.

St. Martin is also home to a premier clothing-optional vacation resort, Club Orient. The large resort sustained severe damage to its property, facilities and 130+ rooms. A number of buildings were flattened, and Orient Beach (a clothing-optional beach accessible to the public) is gone.

One of the resort’s unit owners sent out this report: Cont…Read full original article…

El nudismo genera millones de euros anuales a Italia
La cultura del naturismo gana adeptos y le genera a Italia crecientes ingresos turísticos, que podrían aumentar para estar a tono con otros países europeos.

La cultura del naturismo, que además del nudismo implica contacto directo con la naturaleza, nutrición sana, nada de alcohol y deportes en el exterior, gana adeptos y le genera a Italia crecientes ingresos turísticos, que podrían aumentar para estar a tono con otros países europeos. Desde las playas de Guvano en Liguria al Oasis de Capocotta en Lazio, desde Punta Ferruccio en Abruzzo a las Lagunas del Mort en Véneto son algunos de los 50 sitios específicos donde se practica el naturismo en la península.

Los italianos representan una minoría huéspedes extranjeros entre los clientes que se alojan en algún destino naturista.

A Italia todavía le falta camino por recorrer si se compara con otros países, comenzando por Francia que inauguró su primer parque público nudista; Croacia, destino top del estilo durante este verano y España, en especial las Islas Baleares. Estos son los paraísos donde la Frei Korper Kultur (FKK), la “Cultura del cuerpo libre” surgida en Alemania en el siglo XIX tiene menos restricciones y está reglamentada por leyes propias, aunque en la península itálica también se espera que la tendencia produzca “un pequeño tesoro”.

“El naturismo involucra al día de hoy a cerca de 491.200 italianos, de los cuales sólo tres de cada diez pasan sus vacaciones en el país. En conjunto los naturistas, italianos y extranjeros, aportarán al turismo nacional 1.600.000 visitantes y una facturación de poco más de 54 millones de euros” este año, afirmó Massimo Feruzzi, autor de una completa investigación del tema.

Costas sigue sin construir una senda segura en la cala nudista

Los bañistas que eligen la playa nudista de Playa Morena, en El Portús, para disfrutar de un buen chapuzón, continúan un año más sin poder acceder a la zona de una forma segura. Los que no lo hacen a través del camping se ven obligados a hacerlo por el monte, jugándose el tipo. La Demarcación de Costas del Estado, un organismo que depende del Ministerio de Medio Ambiente, todavía no ha iniciado los trabajos previstos para abrir una senda que permita el acceso desde la zona de la rambla, en paralelo a los alojamientos turísticos.

El proyecto está bloqueado en los juzgados, porque afecta a diferentes construcciones, como casas prefabricadas, una treintena de parcelas de acampada, una piscina, aseos y un muro. Hasta que estas edificaciones e instalaciones no sean retiradas, Costas no podrá entrar en la zona de servidumbre para realizar las obras.

La mayoría de los usuarios de Playa Morena están hospedados en el camping, pero otros deciden escalar por el monte, pasar por unos escalones construidos en la roca y casi destrozados y andar entre piedras. Hay quien se arriesga a despeñarse, incluso yendo con menores de edad. Cont…Read full original article…
