Every Nudist Beach in Spain

We aim to provide comprehensive coverage of all nudist beaches in Spain. It is unrealistic for us to visit every beach on the list, so we will rely on the community’s efforts to keep everyone up to date with reviews, photos from beaches they have visited, etc.

For official nude beaches, we source information from the Spanish Government and Tourist websites. For “unofficial” beaches, we gather data from publicly available sources to create a reliable resource.

If you know of a beach we’ve missed, adding it to our list is simple. Follow the steps for reporting a beach where nudism is commonly practised. While theoretically, any beach in Spain can be used as a nudist beach, and topless sunbathing is widespread, our goal is to direct you to beaches where nude sunbathing is commonplace.

Tips for Visiting Nude Beaches and Naturist Resorts

Respect Local Customs: Always check for signs indicating where nudism is allowed and follow the local norms and customs.
Bring Essentials: Sunscreen, hats, parasols, and plenty of water are crucial as beaches can be exposed with little shade.
Environmentally Friendly: Use the designated bins for your trash; if none, take it home to keep the beaches clean.
