All the beaches are nude in nature, since there are no laws prohibiting being naked in public places (except in some cities like Barcelona where you can be fined). We do not recommend however to undress yourself in a crowded beach, where the regulars of the beach are not used to nudity. Continue reading if you are planning a visit to a nude beach during your holidays.
However, if the beach is somewhat isolated and there are few people, I recommend to find a place far from the few people on the beach, so they can avoid you. The same applies to beaches that are not accessible by car and people have to walk a while to reach it.
And what if you have to take the child in a stroller or need unabled access to the beach? Then there are beaches where access is easy, but have been traditionally occupied by nudists, so nobody is surprised or upset by seeing someone naked.
The local tourist information offices are also a good source of information about nude beaches. They are usually attended by locals who know the area quite well, and can tell you where are the most popular nude beaches in the area and what is the best way to get there…
