|The European Naturist Resort Guide. The naturist Terrain Guide is an independent initiative to create a well structured source of information for all people searching for their ideal naturist holiday resort. This guide will give you clear information in 4 languages about most naturist resorts in European countries. We still have a limited number of resorts with extended terrain information. We hope to improve this in the near future. Possibly you can help us in achieving this and inform terrain managers during your holiday of the existence of this website. We also would appreciate if you could help us completing, improving and correcting our database. Let us know if you find any errors, mistakes, mistypes, etc, or if you have any other good idea in improving our site. Of course we offer camping owners the possibility to exploit a full-blown website on the internet and present their terrain for a worldwide audience. Also included is a sample letter to write to resorts asking for information. This sample letter is in six languagues. Visit the site for additional information.|
|Tenerife (Canary Islands, Spain) - La Teresita and Montana Roja Beaches. June 2008. I went to Tenerife for a meeting. Yesterday I visited an OK nude beach. I am here for 4 days more, so I hope to find more. To find La Teresita you take N1, the Autopista Sur to the Medano exit, the next exit north from the southern airport on Tenerife. Head towards the ocean (pretty obvious) and follow the signs to La Tejita. Park at La Playa Montana Roja and follow the obvious flat path to the beach. La Tejita is a long sandy beach which starts at a red rock hill ('Montana Roja, the Red Mountain) and goes south to an apartment complex about a mile south of Montana Roja. At the north end of the beach there is a little bar, and a path leading behind the bar goes to a small black sand beach where almost all of the men and some of the women are nude. It was quite windy when I was there, but you can get shelter from the wind by the rocks. There are reports on the web that the whole La Tejita beach is clothing optional. It is clearly top free, but I didn't see anyone nude there. This might change on the weekend, beause it is clear that the little Montana Roja beach was pretty crowded on a Monday. I don't have the courage to walk nude down a textile beach - but I don't know what the custom really is here. A nice feature is that the bar provides lounges on the nude beach, for free. If you go there buy something, if only an overpriced bottle of water. Thanks Mickey for the report. If you wish to contact Mickey, click HERE. Make sure you mention the report you are referring to in the body of the email and that you want the email forwarded to Mickey.|
|Tenerife (Canary Islands, Spain). I opened a new site recently to describe my personal impressions and experience of visiting Tenerife (Canary Islands, Spain). The site contains information on the naturist beaches, their locations and ways of access, a list of hotels with naturist solariums, and some advice to a tourist coming to Tenerife.

|(Nude) Beaches near Lisbon. July 2006. North of Lisbon. The web lists four beaches as naturist: Abano, Ursa, Adraga, and Ajuda. To get to the beaches, take the A2 west (from the airport you take the Second Circular out of the circle at the exit from the airport), exit to Cascais, and once you get into town follow the signs to Guincho. Continue past Guincho. The road winds high on the cliffs, and the beaches are at the bottom, with roads of varying quality leading to parking at the cliff at the top of the beach, from which you walk down to the beach (except for Adraga, where the parking is at beach level). These beaches are mediocre news for naturists. Abano is first. When I was there Abano was exclusively textile. Adraga is second. It had one unhappy-looking nude man at the far end of the beach. Aguda was fourth. You had to walk down a staircase of 230 steps, and when you got there there was nothing but textile bathers. All three beaches were topfree - with about a quarter of the women taking advantage of the practice. Adraga and Abano had excellent restaurants at the parking lot, and lifeguards. Aguda was unserviced. Amusingly, dogs were allowed on all of the beaches... (click preceding link to read the rest of the report.)|

Visit the site for more information.|
|Naturest, Portugal. September 2006. Just returned from a week of rest at Naturest: Ray and Marnie, the hosts, made sure that my stay measured up to, and exceeded, what I had expected. This is a small and new place for those wanting to get away from it all, deep in rural Portugal. It is situated in hilly farming country, with good directions written in the website but if you intend to rent a car at the airport, I would recommend arriving in the daylight, or you may have to call Ray to come and guide you in! They promise simple, wholesome meals, but the food was excellent, and the company great. Ray & Marnie welcomed me to go with them on a trip to the Atlantic coast, and also on a shopping expedition to the Algarve. If you need to get away from it all, check out the Naturest website above. Thanks David for the report!|

|Cabopino Beach, Costa del Sol. June 2012 Update. This is a Clothing Optional beach but mainly now used by naturists. Its easy to reach by car. From the N340 main coast road, take the Capobino exit (it's clearly signed). Follow the signs for Puerto Cabopino. From a small traffic island just off the N340 junction, you will turn right into a dirt track car park. Park in the main car park section or continue down the sand track towards the pine trees on the left. Park anywhere behind the trees. From the (free) car park walk through the trees to the beach. The beach is wide and long and the sand is clean and fine. The beach bar is now closed and there are no facilities. Beach and the dunes are now widely used by swingers and lifestylers of both sexes. There’s a lot of sole male masturbation and public sex in the dunes and at the back of the beach. If you are going for a walk – stay near to the sea. There is a lot of male prowling in the dunes, both singles and gays and in the car parking and the tree areas. Not a place to take children really unless you stay near to the sea or find a place at the Porto Cabapino end, nearest to the marina. Thanks Tony for the report!|
|Cabopino Beach, Costa del Sol. July 2006. We recently visited Cabopino beach and wanted to share our experience with you all. First of all, this is a Clothing Optional C/O beach, not truly a naturist beach. Access to the beach couldn't be easier. From the N340 main coast road, take the Capobino exit (it's clearly signed). Follow the signs for Puerto Cabopino. From a small traffic island just off the N340 junction, you will turn right into a dirt track car park. Don't park in the main car park section, but continue down the sand track towards the pine trees. The track itself is quite firm but be careful when you pull off the track to park. The sand is very soft and it's easy to get stuck. Go early to find a shady parking place under a tree! The further down you park, the nearer you will be to the C/O section when you finally reach the beach. From the car park (free, by the way), take one of the many paths through the pine trees and across the sand dunes. It's just a short walk to the beach. The beach itself is certainly one of the better ones I have seen on Costa del Sol. The sand is very clean and fine. The beach shelves very gently into the sea and you can easily wade out 40 yards or so and still be only waist deep. The sea was very calm when we visited, almost mill-pond flat, but I'm not sure if it's always that way. The sea was very clear, if still a little chilly for end of July. As I said, after a certain point, the beach is clothing optional rather than naturist. You will not mistake the C/O section, as there were many naked people. However, there were some large white marker buoys that have been concreted onto the beach. There was some text on them in Spanish which made reference to Zona Natura - my Spanish is useless, but I guessed that this was the point from which you could be naked, but it could have been a nature reserve for all I know! The C/O section extends to the West (to the right as you look at the sea) for a long way. I walked along about 200 yards past the beach bar and I was still in the C/O section. I'm not sure how much further it goes. The ratio of naked to textile beach users was easily 50/50 so you won't feel out of place. The mix of beach users was wide. Young families, extended families, young couples, older couples. The age range of naturists was 0 to 80-ish. We took a picnic, but there was a good beach bar to the right of the C/O section. Any negative points? Well only a few. Firstly, the high tide mark was high up the beach, so when the tide is in, the beach becomes very narrow, and therefore, people will make their camp for the day very close to you. Don't come here if you're searching for a secluded hideaway! Having said that, we visited on a Sunday, so there were many Spanish locals as well as foreign holiday makers using the beach. Maybe a week-day would be the best time to visit. A second negative point was the sand dunes. Well not the sand dunes themselves, but rather the type of people they attract. Single males prowling the dunes in a 'state of arousal' were certainly not welcome in my opinion. My final gripe was at high tide, it would have been nice if people had made an effort to prevent their rubbish from blowing around or being washed into the sea. In conclusion, we had a great day and would certainly recommend this beach if you are heading to the Costa del Sol for your holiday. Enjoy! Thanks Nick for the report!|
| Lanzarote - Nudist Beaches. Updated Nov 2nd 2012. Nudist Beaches on Lanzarote This is not a comprehensive list of all nudist beaches on the island. Its primary function is a summary of beaches in particular for people who have not visited Lanzarote previously. It's correct as of November 2012. Suggest using Google Maps for exact beach locations and for parking details.
Under Spanish Law, naturism is a right, however discretion for others using any beach on Lanzarote should always be respected. Note: All of the nudist beaches listed below (save for one) are unofficial nude beaches but naturism is widely practised and fully tolerated on them. Note: None offer sun loungers, toilets, any shelter or any food or drink.
Here's a selection:
1. Airport Beach between Playa Honda & Matagorda: Next to Arrecife airport runway. Easy walk from car parking at far end of runway. Wide beach with yellow sand. Some rocky/stones areas towards the rear of the beach offer a greater deal of privacy. Use the middle section of this 1km long beach. Popular with single males rather than families. Boardwalk behind the beach is not naturist.
2. Matagorda area: Yellow sand beach to the front of Hotel Beatriz Playa & Spa. Used by naturists weekdays and out of season. Some rocky/stones areas offer a greater deal of privacy. There will be non nudists and families walking by on most days so some discretion is required.
3. Papagayo Beach: Located on the south tip of the island: Sand and pebbles. Yellow/white sand surrounded by headlands and some sand dunes. The larger 2 beaches are mainly used by textiles and famililes. Suggest the smaller beach at the very southern part of the headland. There's an entry charge to the National Park for car parking. Pay at the ticket booth on entry. Approx 5 euro.
4. Between Puerto Del Carmen and Playa Quemada: A narrow flat rock beach extending 2kms underneath the headlands. No sand. 10 minutes walk west over the headland from Puerto Del Carmen Old Town or car parking is available on the Camino Barranco el Quiquere. Walk down the concrete steps from the headland. Rocky inlets on left and flatter sunbathing areas to the right. Can get busy at weekends. Alternatively park your car on the headlands to the north east of the village of Playa Quemada and walk down to one of the small rocky beaches along the headland. Mainly singles.
5. Famara Beach In the north of the island: All of the beach to the north of the village of Caleta de Famara and away from the car parking areas is widely used by naturists. Singles, couples and families. Large stone / rock 'zocos' to the rear of the 2km beach allow privacy and wind protection. Towards the sea the beach is brown/yellow sand. Best to avoid on a windy day! Swimming can be dangerous here due to the tides. Beach is quite wide at low tide and perfect for naturist walking. Park in the main sea front car park (free) and walk north (away from the village) or drive round the back of the large villa development and park at the back of the beach.
6. Orzola area: North of the island: 3 lovely white sand beaches located to the east of the village of Orzola. Beaches are named Mojon Blanco, Caleton Blanco and Charco de la Laja. Park at back of each beach. Can be windy. Large rock / volcanic areas allowing privacy or protection from the wind. Beautiful lagoon at Charco de la Laja. The beaches here are often deserted apart from weekends and the summer months when they are very popular with locals and families.
7. Charco del Palo: International coastal official naturist resort in the north east of Lanzarote near the village of Mala. Follow road directions once in Mala. This residential development of apartments bungalows and villas is 100% naturist. 3 restaurants and 2 bars. Lava rock beaches and some yellow/white sand areas. Not much privacy. Mainly older couples & german owner / residents. Tourists however are welcome. Park with discretion and respect all rights of locals and residents! Thanks Tony for the report!
|Los Caños de Meca en internet. Caños de Meca is a small tip on the Southern coast of Spain which has remained surprisingly unspoiled. It is situated near the straight of Gibraltar, close to the towns of Barbate and Zahara de los Atunes. White coloured sand beaches, clean waters, pinewoods, huge cliffs overlooking the sea … los Caños has a feeling of uniqueness and grandeur ! The area has become vulnerable, endangered by excessive urbanization, unbridled tourism and over-fishing. Nevertheless the beauty of the landscape procures it a distinctive charm.

|Costa del Sol, Spain. May 2006. Having used your site to find the Nudist Beaches closest to the area on the Costa del Sol we were staying I feel it only fair to forward you the following report. Staying at a nice apartment situated equidistance between Benalnatura and Costa Natura it was a hard choice as to which beach to use. Benalnatura is, as you say, a small beach and well populated even during the week and can get a little crowded at weekends, so get there early. The shower facility is not free, but for a small donation to the 'Pot Pig' on the bar it can be used. It is possible to become a member for the year by paying 15 euros as a single member or 20 euros as a family member. Please join as this helps the community to stay strong. Whilst there I caught many languages and all the people were very friendly, the bar area is nude only and I saw one person being asked to vacate the area and refused service because they had clothes on. A variety of food and drinks are available from the bar, although they do tend to run out of some of the more popular eats. The bar opens at about 11:00am ish. Costa Natura beach is a larger beach and is accessed around a stony headland, that can be a little daunting when the tide is in. There is a snack bar that is part of the Costa Natura complex that sells the usual drinks and food bits. No toilets could be accessed that we could find. We found the Costa Natura beach not as friendly as the Benalnatura beach as so tended to use the Benalnatura beach more. Thanks Zebb for the report!|
