Nude Beaches on the Costa Blanca

Under Spanish law, all public areas in Spain are nudist! This includes all beaches, parks, streets, squares, forests, rivers and national parks.

Although you are allowed to go naked in any public areas (this excludes private areas such as shops, bars, cafés, hotels etc.,) most people respect the wishes of the majority, and only go naked in designated nudist areas.

Along the Costa Brava there are dozens of beaches which are designated as Nudist, some of these are heterosexual, some are predominantly gay beaches.

If you know of beaches we have not included please drop us a line with details of the location, and the type of users.
