Only for the daring: take a look at the best nudist beaches on the Costa de la Luz
For many bathers, naturism or nudism is the most rewarding experience one can experience during summer vacations. And there are few things in life that can be compared to feeling the warm summer sun hugging our skin kissed by the sea and more when you are in the so-called Costa de la Luz. Both the nudist beaches of Cádiz and the naturalists of Huelva are an infinite space of strips of golden sand ideal for walking, running, playing ball games, etc. It must be said that although there are officially no naturalist beaches in Cádiz, thanks to the virgin state of a large part of its coast and its isolated landscapes, this coastal strip is an ideal place for naturists. On the other hand, if there are nudist beaches in Huelva officially. In many of these beaches nudity and textiles coexist, so that you can see families or groups of friends where there are naked members and others with a swimsuit. Why do not you dare to try nudism on one of its beaches? On the coasts of Cádiz and Huelva there is room for everyone.
Costa de la Luz has many other beaches frequented by nudists, but we have selected those that seem most beautiful for the environment. Costa de la Luz is the paradise of beach and sun in Andalusia.
The fabulous Bolonia beach with its sand dunes and pines, in the province of Cádiz, has a nudist area on its left-hand side. This part is known as El Chorrito (“the Trickle”). You can walk along pristine sands until you lose all track of civilisation.
Don’t be surprised if you see someone covered in mud. Further along, there are slate rocks which, when mixed with the water, forms a therapeutic mud which you can smear on yourself. At only 130 metres west of the city, there is an ecological treasure: The Duna de Bolonia Natural Monument. This area is also ideal for those who want to try nudism discreetly.
ZAHARA DE LOS ATUNES
There is no more idyllic place than Playa Arroyo Cañuelo, near Zahara de los Atunes in the province of Cádiz. Here we can find green pines, golden sands, clear calm water and no buildings to break the unique environment. To reach this impressive nude beach, take the road from Zahara to Cabo de Gracia, pass through the Atlanterra built-up area and leave the car in the car park near the Camarinal lighthouse. From there, you will have to go down a path through the pine forests. This beach is part of the Natural Park del Estrecho.
CAÑOS DE MECA
The beach at Los Castillejos in Caños de Meca, in the province of Cádiz, has a bohemian and hippie feel which takes us to a romantic past. This stretch of pristine beach is protected by the pine forests of the Natural Park of Barbate, La Brena and Marismas. Wear good shoes for walking over rocks and reach an area known as Las Cortinas, famous for the natural waterfalls that plunge down the cliff. North of Canos de Meca is another popular place for nudists: the area of the Trafalgar Lighthouse cliffs, La Playa del Faro. On the other side of the lighthouse the beach stretches several kilometres and has a new name: Playa de Trafalgar, Zahora, La Palmar. At a total of 7 kilometres long, it is unspoilt and clothing is traditionally optional, although there are more nudists at the lighthouse end.
CALA DEL ACEITE
In contrast to the wide and windy beaches on the Costa de la Luz, to the north of Conil de la Frontera, there are many protected and isolated coves where nudists can find an ideal space to practice naturism. The La Cala de Aceite campsite has an area dedicated to naturism but you may very possibly not find anyone nude, at least not during the summer months. Access is available from the road between the Roche residential area and Conil de la Frontera.
DE LA MATA NEGRA O LOS ENEBRALES
The Mata Negra beach is located between the los Enebrales Natural Park in Punta Umbria and the fantastic and protected Marismas del Odiel natural area, all located in the province of Huelva. This beach is frequented by people who practise nudism as there is an area dedicated to this purpose.
A wide and quiet beach where you can enjoy nature, the sea and long walks which will delight you. Its occupancy rate is low so you will never find large crowds which makes it a perfect beach to go to as a couple, with friends, family or individually.
FLECHA DE NUEVA UMBRÍA
If you visit this beautiful beach, we assure you that you won’t regret it. It is kept immaculate and is embraced by both the Piedras river and the refreshing waters of the Atlantic. Given that it is in the natural landscape and completely lacks any services, it is so beautiful that there are always plenty of bathers on the coast.
The fact that Nueva Umbría lacks any services makes this a perfect place for those new to naturism. You won’t feel like the rest of bathers are looking at your and so you will find it much easier to undress for the first time on a beach. We recommend that before taking your clothes off, you walk along the beach for a while and choose the beach area that you find most comfortable. Nudists usually prefer the central area of the beach and especially the area that lies between the Terrón highway and the ferry port which runs between El Rompido and Nueva Umbria.
Rompeculos Beach is located in Mazagón, Matalascañas in Huelva. It is a beach well known for its residents and is accompanied by a natural landscape of beautiful and vivid colours.
Despite its odd name, this beach is a favourite for nudists and is frequented by both residents and tourists. His name was given in the nineteenth century, because there is a somewhat irregular channel which broke the line of the sand dunes and opened the way to the beach.
This beach is mostly visited by those who practise nudism (also called naturism) as it is one of the most famous nudist beaches in Huelva.
The Castilla beach belongs to the natural space wonderful Doñana park in Almonte, Huelva. It is around twenty kilometres long. It’s a, rustic, unspoilt secluded beach, located in one of the most treasured places on the coast of Huelva.
Although the whole beach is officially nudist, going nude is not compulsory here. Any tourist can come to this beach and enjoy its waters, its sun and its landscapes.
Playa del Cañuelo
El Cañuelo is one of the essential beaches of the Cadiz coast, although its access is only possible on foot, since it is hidden among pine trees that protect it from the prying eyes of the mass tourist, so here you can leave the swimsuit in the backpack and let the sun bathe your entire body. In addition, this beach is totally lacking in services, although this is one of the things that makes it so special because in return the place offers a perfect refuge in the days of the East.
