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.

Also worth a read Egyptian Nudist and A First Time Experience With Nudism In Egypt

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.

The naked city a naturist paradise in France

Written by Peter Terp. Posted in City / Place guide, Nudist guides

Are you going to South Europe this summer and enjoy being naked? Cap d’Agde might be exactly the place you are looking for.

Cap d’Agde may look like any other French Mediterranean town on the surface, but do not be fooled. There are more than one side to the french beach city.

The is city actually divided into a clothed part and a naked part. Cap d’Agde also has a nickname “The Naked City” and that is not without reason. If you enjoy shopping in the nude, banking naked and do all your daily stuff without a stitch on the body – this city is definitely worth visiting.

40,000 people visits this naked heaven during the summer months. The naked part of the city has an entry fee on nine euros for a entry card which gives you free access to the city. The naked city is also guarded which makes it more secure to walk around in the buff without stalkers and harassment.

If you want to visit the city the easiest way to get there is probably by plane to Montpellier. From Montpellier railway there are trains running to Cap d’Agde.
