Nudist Beach in Valldemossa
Internationally renown as a place of outstanding beauty, the Majorcan village of Valldemossa nestles in a picturesque valley surrounded by the stunning Sierra de Tramuntana mountains. Its close proximity to the island’s capital Palma, makes for a fantastic day trip and the lush countryside and mountains are a firm favourite destination with hikers and outdoor enthusiasts. The charming village is immaculate and the majority of its houses and narrow streets are built from the local stone of the region. There is a selection of craft shops, sidewalk cafes, tapas bars and restaurants and the steep and winding lanes invite visitors to slow their pace and explore the quaint nooks and crannies. The main attraction of the village is its 13th century monastery known as the Real Cartuja de Valldemossa or Royal Charter House. Many famous writers and composers have visited Valldemossa, finding inspiration in its beautiful setting, and the Polish composer Frederic Chopin spent a winter here in 1838. The village is also the birthplace of Majorca’s patron saint, Catalina Thomas, and evidence of the villagers devotion to her can be seen in the plaques with religious symbols adorning the doors of most homes.
The nearest beach and small harbour of Port Valldemossa are just a few kilometres away although most visitors prefer the larger beaches of nearby Deia. Located between the harbour and the larger Port des Canonge there is an official nudist beach in Valldemossa. The surrounding mountains of the Sierra de Tramuntana and the western coastline are a hikers dream with many kilometres of hiking trails and coastal paths boasting spectacular views. For a great range of family beaches, shops, bars and restaurants as well as nightclubs open until the early hours, visitors staying in Valldemossa are only a short drive away from the island’s capital city Palma.
