sunshine naturist where

Where else do you go for naturist sunshine?
#1
Fuerteventura without doubt has some of the finest beaches for naturist sunbathing in Europe.  But where else do you go for naturist sunshine?  My wife & I have also been to mainland Spain, Mallorca, France, Greece, as well as the Caribbean.  Apart from Fuerteventura, our favourite maybe is Vera Playa in Spain - not a great beach perhaps but a fabulously laid-back area.

Where are your favourites?

We love going to Crete, Kefalonia and France. SW Crete has some truly spectacular beaches as does southern Kefalonia. In France we love the Atlantic coast near Bordeaux and the Mediterranean beaches near Montpellier. Corsica is also a great favourite of ours. If we get a summer like we've just had then the unofficial naturist beaches of South Wales are as good as anywhere. ?

We've been to Kefalonia, and spent quite a bit of time on the beach near Skala.  We've also been to SW Crete (to Vritomartis Naturist Hotel, which was terrible) but didn't get out to look at the beaches much as we didn't rent a car there.  This September, we went to the Naturist Panorama Hotel in Zakynthos, which was very relaxing!

Our non-Fuerte favourite is France where there are many inland naturists opportunities - many on swimmable rivers.
I have also enjoyed naturist flotilla yachting off Greece for the las three years.

Yes - although only the first of the three was from Nidri. The other two were from other bases in the South Ionian.

We've been to :

Faliraki (Rhodes) Beach isn't anything special but it's economical. The Weather during the summer is always perfect if you don't mind the heat. For the most part the people are nice. OTOH last time there was one idiot (A local I think) who set himself up on the edge of the textile zone pleasuring himself. Shocked/scared the textile walkers. At the other end in the bushes there can be a different type of activity so best not to walk down there if you're easily shocked.

Outside of that the people running the place seem to be putting in more and more umbrellas which wouldn't be bad if the equipment was at least comfortable. OTOH the prices tend to be low.

In France La Seyne-sur-Mer. Beach isn't the easiest to get to. You'll have an easy hike from your parking spot . But it's a good 15 plus minutes from the nearest parking spot walking in the forest/park until you reach the beach. Beach is rocky and very natural. Most of the people on any given day are locals. Some Germans. Some Italians. It's too much effort for the peepers but you will have the occasional runner accidentally end up there. Town feels a little run down. It's not luxury south of France.

In Barcelona if you aren't shy two of the beaches. One is legal the other accepted by the Police. Easy to get to from the tourist hotels but not for the shy.

Further south Parque Regional de Calblanque outside of Cartagena I love. But the most modern thing you'll find is the parking lot. Everything you'll need or want will need to be brought with you. Plus they have a limit on the number of cars which means after 10 am you may have to wait for somebody else to leave before you are allowed in. Virtually 100% Spanish. Very private. 

Vera Playa is easier to get to. But the beaches aren't on the same level. You've got a number of textile voyeurs.  But if you aren't shy and want something organized it works. 

Even further south  Playa de los Muertos. Which we thought was officially a 100% nude beach. By 11 it had turned from nude to almost 100% clothed. Beach is nice . No services but gorgeous. But busy. If it was less busy it would be great.

We tend to not worry about services on the beaches. Most of the above you'll want to pack everything you might want for the day.

Benalnatura on the Costa Del Sol was amazing.
It was the first time we'd been on a naturist beach that was not clothing optional. 
It was clothing unacceptable. 
It has a smashing beach bar selling cold beers and freshly cooked seafood. 
Rule No. 1 - if you're not naked, your not getting served.
We went on a Wednesday and it was busy. 
We liked it a lot, so much we went back on the Saturday and forgot it's not a working day. 
It was rammed to the point where your beach towels were overlapping with complete strangers. 
No one gave a damn and it was the friendliest beach I've ever been on. 
Even my normally shy wife adored it.

Edit to add - It has your usual mix of personalities, small number of 20's, smattering of single ladies, a good number of gay guys, but predominantly middle aged couples and everyone mixed harmoniously. Recommend wholeheartedly.

Benalnatura is a lovely little beach, very clean and tidy (ashtrays are offered to stick in the sand).  As you've said, it has an excellent beach bar (with local newspapers), and also has toilets and a barbecue visitors can use.  It's all coordinated by a group of local people called the "Friends of Benalnatura".

Unfortunately, due to its location it's prone to getting textile visitors from neighbouring beaches.  The Friends have a well-rehearsed technique for dealing with them.  First, one of the Friends will go and have a very discreet word in their ear, explaining that it's a naturist beach and they'll have to remove their clothing or leave.  If that doesn't work, another Friend will have a more serious chat, giving them a few minutes to either strip or leave.  And, if that doesn't work, the final sanction is that a few of the Friends form a circle around the offending visitors and start a slow hand clap.  This is the signal for others to join in (both Friends and ordinary visitors).  When I visited, a British couple who refused to strip ended up with 70 or 80 people slow clapping around them for about 5 minutes, until they stripped.  It's very intimidating, and there's a bit of herd mentality in it, but it's certainly effective!
