Caneiros naturist beach, Ferragudo, Algarve, Portugal

Written by Peter Terp. Posted in Nude beach guides

Photo by SuzyesueCaneiros is a small beach, very pleasant, attended almost exclusively by nudists. The view on the beach is one of the most wonderful along the portuguese coast. Facing the beach, some rock formations emerge from the sea. By late afternoon, the rocks get covered by thousands of nesting Seagulls, from the cliffs by the Lighthouse to the top of the Islands in front of the Beach.

The water there is very warm, and the beach is a perfect place for children to play safely. The sea is very quiet and they will always be within sight.

Getting there
Caneiros naturist beach is located close to Ferragudo near Portimão towards the East. The only easy way to get to the naturist beach is from Ferragudo Beach, to the right (West), around a rock formation (not always possible on high tide).

You have a GPS? Well then you can go for this info GPS: LATITUDE: 37.10486 , LONGITUDE: -8.514 they are for the main beach, not the naturist part of the beach.

Nude sunbathing was previous illegal in Hawaii but Hawaii Supreme Court upheld right to nude sunbathing on some public beaches including Little beach (Read further here) . Little beah is known as Maui’s unofficial clothing optional beach, and has become a favorite place among nudists / naturists.

The sand is golden the waves incredible! The water is clear and warm, there is plenty of room for everyone on most days. All in all a great place for naturists. Trip Advisor has a rating for the beach on 4.5/5 – with 150 reccomendations this must speak for it self.

Swimming, snorkeling

All ages are able to make it up this short climb with no worries.
