Nudist Beaches in Campos
The town of Campos lies about 8 kilometres inland in the south of Majorca. It is mainly a residential and agricultural town, although during the summer months, receives its fair share of holidaymakers to its nearby beaches. The area around Campos has a large dairy industry and is recognisable by the number of windmills that dot the countryside and supply water to the area’s farms. Visitors should try the local Pirus cheese which is flavoured with paprika. The region is proud of its Friesian cattle, and each year Campos holds the Feria Ramadera national competition for the breed. There are also local produce markets held twice a week as well as a weekly flea market. The town is home to the magnificent 13th century parish church of Sant Julia who is remembered every January with a religious celebration.
There are some lovely places to visit around Campos including the island’s second largest Natural Park, Es Salobar Wetlands. A few kilometres from Campos is Europe’s largest botanical garden, an area of over 150 square kilometres boasting more than 1,600 species of plants, flowers and cacti, including pine, cypress, olive, eucalyptus, carob, almonds and pomegranates. There are bamboo jungles and arid areas featuring many cacti species including a 300 year old ”Carnegie Giant” cactus from Arizona. The botanical gardens are also home to the largest navigable lake in the Balearic Islands. Well worth a visit during the months of August – October are the vast sand dunes of Platja Caragol bay where visitors can enjoy the endless vistas of beautiful Sea Daffodils in bloom.
