3 ways to go nude in Egypt

Written by Peter Terp. Posted in City / Place guide, Country guide, Nude beach guides

Sharm El SheikhYou probably think “Isn’t it illegal to be naturist in Egypt?” You are right – it is illegal!

Egypt is an Islamic country and nudity is illegal by law and the genreal attitude in Egypt is that “If you are nude, it is sexual”. Therefore I can not reccommend that you walk around in the buff in public. Remember that nudity is punishable in Egypt!

There are ways to get nude in Egypt though!

Tourism – makes nudity possible

Because of the fact that Egypt has a large dependency on tourism, there are ways to get nude in Egypt. Authorities are striving to a wide variety of tourists, and a part of them are those whop prefer to be naked in the sun. It is therefore not surprising that that toplessness is tolerated many resorts, but not officially allowed.

There also are a few resorts which tolerate nudity on their private beaches. The information you find below is not tested by me, but found through research.

Coral Beach Resort in Hurghada

The resort is not officially a naturist friendly resort. The resort itself is not naturist friendly but there is a nearby beach where nudity is widely tolerated.

Topless at resorts in Sharm El Sheikh & Hurghada

It is not unusual to see topless women on the resorts private beaches. It is not legal according to Egyptian law but it is accepted by resort. This doesn’t mean that you should disrespect the local culture and break the law but I am just saying that it occurs and it is not uncommon. It is up to your own code of ethics whether you find it acceptable, and you could also ask the staff it would be tolerated, but don’t expect a clear answer.

Visit Israel

If you visit Egypt in the Sinai area of Egypt (Sharm El Sheikh, Dahab etc.) – you are not far from Israel.  Actually the distance from Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt to Eilat in Israel is only a 3 hour drive in car. The reason why that is interesting is that nudity is much more accepted in Israel. You can read much more about naturism in Israel on The Israeli Naturist Society.

You can read qNaturists article about snorkling in the Red Sea near Eilat on Active Naturists.

Write a comment

It has been really hard to find information about naturism in Egypt. Therefore I will really appreciate if you write me a comment if I am wrong in some way or if I missed some. I would also like to say thank you to a naturist Egyptian for the help.

Warning!!! It is illegal to be nude and topless in Egypt, this is therefore not an invitation to go nude in Egypt. This is a post about what happens in Egypt and what is possible. This can change very fast and therefore I will say be careful out there.

India’s hidden nude beaches

Written by Peter Terp. Posted in Nude beach guides

vagator_beach
There are probably not many who think naturism when dreaming of India. However, it is quite possible to find naturist beaches in this land of mystery. I have created a small collection of hidden nudist beaches in India.

Vagator Beach
The beach is known for its red rocks and springs. The beach is exotic, beautiful and is located at the northernmost corner of Bardez Taluka, opposite the Chapora River. Vagator Beach is split into two main beaches. Vagator Beach beach is very popular among foreign tourists who come to watch the sunset surrounded by red rocks. You also find the sculpture you see on the picture of this post.
On Vagator Beach, you can find facilities for eating, entertainment and Full Resorts & bars.

Ozran Beach
Ozra Beach is one of the lesser known nude beaches in Indiien, which is a little odd, when you consider that this is an amazing naturist beach. It is situated approximately 24 km (14.9 miles) from Panaji and is located near some pretty popular beaches in Goa, including Candolim, Calangute and Baga.

The beach is harder to get to than the more popular beaches. Every year there are many tourists visiting the beach to swim and sunbathe topless or nude. The naturist beach is exotic with swaying coconut trees and beautiful water.

Marari Beach
The beach is the perfect place to explore Kerela Backwaters. The beach is located in a small town called Mararikulam, about. 60 km. from Cochin. There are several attractions near Marari Beach, including Kumarakon Bird Sanctuary and Kerela backwater channels. Marari Beach is beautiful, isolated beach with a long beautiful coastline, where you can plan a perfect holiday for unadulterated enjoyment.

Naturism on Curacao

Written by Peter Terp. Posted in Country guide, Nudist guides

curacao

Curacao is a beautiful island country located in the southern southern Caribbean Sea. The population is only 150000 on an area of 444 km2 (171 sq mi) with a capital called Willemstad.

With a tropical climate and an average temperature on 27°C (80°F) year round and with a blue sea that offers a nice cooling down, it is the perfect place for naturism. Unfortunately public naturism is not allowed on Curaçao – but this doesn’t mean that it isn’t practiced.

Topless sunbathing

Topless sunbathing is seen on most beaches in the resort areas, but not on resort ground. Please note that this is not permitted by law, but is tolerated in the resort areas.

Clothing optional resort

There is only one nude resort in the ABC Islands (Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao) and it is located on Curacao. The resort is called “The Natural Curacao” and it is a clothing optional resort for everyone who loves nature and who is fond of peace and quiet, and doesn’t like mass tourism.

The resort is eco-friendly and is located on a beautiful place at Curaca with an outstanding view, and where the trade winds make sure that the temperature is perfect.

Liberate your mind and body at naturist vacation f.ex at Formentera

Written by Bjarne. Posted in Blog, Nude beach guides

Formentera naturist

Many – actually 500 – have shared my previous article at Facebook, and some have contacted me for more info, therefore I thought it was time for a new article.

I am already dreaming of a new naturist vacation – and again, I want to spend it on Formentera.

When autumn is upon us and winter just around the corner, what is more natural, than to dream and fantasize for a new summer filled with beach life – plan and book your summer holiday – and what is more natural than beach life without swimsuits.

Liberate your mind and body with a vacation with extra sunscreen and no tan lines

 

 

 

 

Formentera Canyers sand

I prefer clothing optional – where people with and without bathing suits thrive together in the best harmony – real naturist resort is not just me –  I feel clothing optional allows more freedom – and with equal distribution of gender and age, then Formentera is a hit – and Formentera is just a fast ferry ride from Ibiza.

 

 

 

 

 

Formentera, naturist under water

I clearly prefer to stay in Es Pujols with a few minutes walk to the naturist beaches and in the evening near the cafe life.

I prefer the the incredibly lovely hotel Tahiti, and perhaps the most best
situated

I’m addicted the crystal clear, warm, turquoise-colored water and so much you can do naked at the beach, beach-tennis, snorkling and see big fish and squids

and you don’t need clothe for windsurfing, paddle surf, or canoing etc. etc.

 

I wish I were naked on the beach right now!

 

 

Formentera, naturist, playing with sand

 

At Formentera there are beaches where you rent beach chairs and umbrellas – but I prefer the beaches, where you have own umbrella and blanket and not forgetting plastic foot as you screws into the sand so parasol stands firmly – and when the parasol stands firmly it becomes not destroyed by the wind

 

 

 

Espalmador mud

Espalmador is definity a place to dream and definitely a must see spot.

Forget all about swimsuits, but remember food and drink – unless you take one of charter boats serving food and drink on the boat – and parasol must – and there is a small boat sailing shuttles there almost all day

 

Here I’m – Espalmador, just soaked in the mud for a while.

Espalmador is known for the famous mud bath, but now the authorities would like to have you do not touch it.

Espalmador have the most snow-white beaches -and it’s paradise – like Formentera is paradise

 

 

 

Always without modesty
