Naturism, nudism in Iceland

Written by Peter Terp. Posted in Country guide

Naturism in Iceland is individually instead of social gatherings and nudist groups, as naturism in Iceland is only in recent years become more popular.

Despite the cooler weather in Iceland, offers this destination many hot springs and a rural setting where you can be naked. There are swimming areas in all regions of the country. There is no official nude beaches or dedicated nudist places in Iceland.

The spas around Reykjavok generally do not allow nakedness. The same goes for the very popular and famous “The Blue Lagoon”

Naturists activities in Iceland often takes place on a remote site. Anyhow there actually is a naturist community in Iceland.

Nude beach Los Tusales, Alicante in Spain

Written by Peter Terp. Posted in Nude beach guides

This beach is a large open naturist beach. There is free parking in the parking lot, but it quickly becomes crowded so come early. Theft in the car are not uncommon in the area, so do not tempt weak souls and take anything of value with you.

When you get to the beach, the first place you get to is the textile beach. On the textile beach it’s possible to buy drinks, ice cream and more. Furthermore there is a playground for children.

If you walk around 400 meter to the South, you will get to the nude beach. The beach is deep from the ocean to the dunes. This means that nudists / naturists / families are close to the sea and only few / no options for voyeurs. Then there is a large open area where the center area, which is empty, and the back of the beach dunes merge into a large area with trees and roads. This area is where exhibitionists liying in the sun and voyeurs also move (and generally accepted).

If you want no attention from other visitors to the beach it is very easy, if you choose the former area. Are you satisfied with single men looking at you, wicks just the second.

Note that when the wind blows it can be a little sandblasted because of very fine sand. There are no cabins, toilets and other facilities in the nude area.

The movie can be seen in its full length (47 minutes) and is totally free. I found the video really interesting – I hope you will like it too.

Naturism in California, USA

Written by Peter Terp. Posted in State guide

Nudism or Naturism as we know it has several sources and most of them can be traced back to early 20th century health and fitness philosophies in Germany. Formally Naturism arrived in USA in 1923 when Katherine and Herman Shoshinki who were familiar with nudism arrived in Germany and helped in the formation of one of the first Nudist groups (American League for Physical Culture) in 1929.

Since then Naturism has gradually grown in USA. A Gallup survey conducted in USA first in year 1983 and then in 2000 clearly showed that Naturism or leniency towards Naturism is on the rise in USA. California which is the most populous US state and the third largest by land cover has a climate mix ranging from arid to subarctic (depending upon the latitude & distance from the coast) provides excellent opportunity for Naturism lovers to surf and enjoy the sunshine.

Alexandria Bay nudist beach in Queensland, Australia

Written by Peter Terp. Posted in Nude beach guides

The area between rock and Alexandria Bay at Noosa Head in Queensland, Australia is used to be a naturist favorite, secluded, beautiful and private – but since then they have upgraded the nearby paths, which makes the place less attractive. Unless you are interested in doing a show for backpackers and water clean, then go down to Alexandria Bay and private life again. It is a 3 km scenic trip, but requires that you have ok shoes on when you reach the southern end of the beach, you can get naked and enjoy it.

Getting there
You can drive down to the main section of Noosa Heads and then turn right at the Hastings Street roundabout then follow the beach road until it ends in the main National Park headquarters car park.

Finland is probably the country in the world where it’s most common to be naked. Naturism occurs the most at their cottage, usually located near a lake and a sauna. After a sauna trip you can leap into the lake, everything happens nude – naturally.

Finland does have a few official nude beaches one of them is Pihlajasaari, it is a small island just outside Helsinki. The beach is an official naturist beach and you can get there by ferry from Merisatama, the other is in Yyteri located west of Pori.
