Top 10 Ten Best Nudist Beaches & Resorts in Spain

By

In theory, nudism is perfectly legal throughout Spain. I saw two groups of people walking through central Barcelona, completely starkers, in a single week last year. Which means that any beach in Spain can be a nudist beach. However, in practice nudists congregate in particular beaches, usually those slightly out of the way.

With the exception of the nudist beaches in Barcelona and Sitges, most of these beaches are quite secluded. You may need to hire a car to reach them. Compare Prices on Car Hire in Spain

The Costa Natura Nudist Resort on the Costa del Sol is a whole Andalusian village completely dedicated to naturists.

2. Barinatxe Nudist Beach, Sopelana, Basque Country

Situated on the north coast of Spain, so it might not always be warm, but the annual Patxi Ros Trophy Nudist Race, held each year, should be fun.

3. Gay & Mixed Nudist Beaches in Sitges

Platja Balmins, is a mixed nudist beach, between Sant Sebastià and the port of Aiguadolç. There is another nudist beach at Cala del Home Mort (Dead Man's Beach), which is mainly gay. Further up the coast, in Vallcarca, to the north of Sitges is a third naturist beach, Cala Morisca.

There has been a debate on Tripadvisor's forums asking: Is Sitges Family-Orientated?

4. El Torn Beach, Tarragona, Catalonia

One of the most popular nudist beaches in Spain (and almost definitely the largest, along the coast from Barcelona (on the other side of Tarragona).

A good place to stay if visiting El Torn is the adjacent El Templo del Sol Nudist Campsite (click on the link for details and pictures of the campsite and beach).

5. British-Run Alicante Nudists Resort

Small nudist resort, run by Maggie and Ian, catering for up to ten people.

6. Playa de la Mar Bella, Barcelona

Has the advantage of being in the city of Barcelona. Walk along the main Barceloneta beach and the nudist section is behind some dunes, after the nautical club.

7. Naturist Resort in the Mountains of Valencia

Who said nudists have to like the beach. If the mountain air is more your thing, try Sierra Natura, near Valencia. Alternatively, there is El Fonoll in Tarragona.

8. El Portus, Cartagena, Murcia - Spain's First Naturist Campsite

Spain's first ever naturist campside is El Portús, in Cartagena, in the little explored region of Murcia.

9. Charco del Palo: Nudist Resort in Lanzarote

Naturist resorts aren't restricted to mainland Spain - Lanzarote in the Canary islands has this fine collection of swimming pools and villas for nudists.

10. Cabo de Gata, Murcia - Combining Nature and Naturism

Cabo de Gata is an unspoilt area of beaches in the south-east of Spain. Hippy communes, nature parks and plenty of space to strip off. Media Luna, Cala Carbón and Cala del Barronal are just some of the nudist beaches in this area.
