Road Closure Affects Spanish Nude Beaches

If you’re planning to enjoy the nudist beaches along the beautiful but wild Mazarrón coast of Murcia, Spain, you’d better pack a stout pair of walking boots along with the sun cream.

Because from 1st July 2017, the nudist beaches of Playa Cueva de Lobos/Moreras, Playa Amarilla, Playa de la Grúa, Cala de Leño, Cala Desnuda, Playa del Barranco Ancho and Playa Hondón del Fondo are only accessible on foot or bicycle.

Australias’ Nude Olympics moving to New South Wales

Queensland has lost a nudist event worth $2 million-a-year to New South Wales.

Tnude olympics photohe annual Nude Olympics, which pulls more than 600 people a year to Noosa’s Alexandria Bay has been cancelled. The Australian Naturist Federation decided on the move after police  started to fine nude men swimming in Alexandra Bay with wilful exposure. Nude women were not fined.

The event, organised by the Australian Naturist Federation, will now be held this March at Byron Bay, either at its legal Tyagarah nude beach or the north Belongil Beach. Negotiations have already  begun with Byron Shire Council to hold the 2017 Nude Olympics at Belongil Beach.

ANF spokesman Stuart Whelan – who owns a naturists’ retreat in New South Wales – said the decision meant several million dollars in accommodation and restaurant takings was now lost to Noosa.

“We are talking several million dollars that will no longer be going through the local economy,” Mr Whelan said.

The logic of the decision to begin arresting nude male bathers, but not nude female bathers is frankly bizarre. Not only is it discriminatory and sexist but it will cost the local economy dear. I can only assume it was taken to demonstrate a smug sense of PC-ness on the part of the authorities.

Yet another case of the growing sanctimonious puritanism which is becoming so popular right now? It is replacing common-sense and in this case costing real money.

Let’s hope the voters remember.

Asia for nudists: the best places to bare it all on holiday

ThaiWHILE Thailand is known for conservative values typical of any Asian country, nudist or “naturist” resorts where tourists can unabashedly bare all are thriving in the kingdom.
There are currently at least four such getaways – in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Pattaya and Phuket – catered exclusively for the naturist, all opened by Danish Gregers Moller and his wife.
At these clothing-optional resorts, visitors are allowed and in fact, encouraged, to go in the buff within the compound, where they can mingle with other like-minded individuals on holiday.
According to Moller, a 8,000 sq ft campsite dedicated for the nudist colony will be opened by year-end at a location somewhere between Bangkok and Kanchanaburi, the South China Morning Post reported.

Half of Brits would dare to bare.

MORE than half of British holidaymakers would consider going on a nudist holiday, stripping off to sunbathe or visiting a naturist beach, according to a new report.

The survey from the lastNudist Brit Girlminute.com website revealed that more than a third of British men (35 per cent) said they would consider naked sunbathing this year and 14 per cent would go on a naturist holiday.

However, for women the corresponding figures were 17 per cent and six per cent.

Around eight per cent of those surveyed had been on a naturist holiday, but a third (33 per cent) of self-confessed nudists admitted to keeping it secret from friends, family and colleagues.

The most popular reason to bare all on the beach was to achieve an all-over tan (42 per cent), while 21 per cent did it to “reconnect with nature” and a fifth (20 per cent) wanted to “step out of their comfort zone”.

Andrew Welch, from British Naturism, the UK’s umbrella organisation for the pastime, said: “For those visiting a nudist beach for the first time, the best advice is to relax.

“Enjoy the sensation of the sun, breeze and sea on your whole body and realise that no-one is worried about how you look.”
