In recent years, the number of supporters of topless or nudism has increased in Portugal. For a long time, the topless, nudism and naturism are no longer considered as marginal practices, and places favorable to total exposure to the sun have blossomed. However, we must be careful to respect the practices of nudism in Portugal, and especially not to go wrong place!
Lisbon has no beaches it is nearly 20km from the sea. This website should help you : portugalnaturista. This topic has been closed to new posts due to inactivity.
With 5 official and approximately 40 unofficial naturist beaches in Portugal we realised that it would be impractical, if not impossible, to see them all in one visit. We were also aware that in some cases we would probably be disappointed, so with this criteria in mind and with research behind us we started our search at Mira, about 30 kilometers south of Aveira. This was because there were only about 4 naturist beaches north of here, none of which were particularly highly rated.
The beach of Meco is really wonderful, very popular by the Portuguese and the most well known internationally. At the beach, facing the ocean, on the left side is a high dune from where onwards start the naturist area, opposing to the right side, where the beach amenities are situated, frequented by families. The excellent beach cost line in this area, the well persevered surrounded forest and the climate attracts tourists from all across Europe.
The entire coast line between Lisbon and the Atlantic Ocean as several sandy beaches. The natural beaches are the best places to have a rest, swim or just get some fresh air watching the board surfers. Nearly all the sandy beaches are easy reach, a walking path links beaches in Oeiras and Cascais, restaurants with great fresh fish, bars, exercise stations, etc….
Nudist tourism and nudism in general is not uncommon in Europe. Over the past several years in Portugal, nudist or naturalist beaches have grown vastly in popularity. Full body tan?
Visiting Lisbon in July Is there a naturist or clothes optional beach with easy access, and a nice atmosphere within reasonable distance? It became popular in the s as one of the first nudist beaches but this reputation continues today with evermore European nudists flocking to it, but there are also some traditional family beach sections.
Blessed with endless beaches and great weather, the Portuguese are renowned for their laid back lifestyle and golden tans. Going to the beach is very much a part of the Portuguese way of life and in recent years, the country has seen growing support and a more relaxed view towards naturism. Naturism was once banned in the country.
It can get very hot in Lisbon during the Summer months, so if f you want to escape the hassle and the heat of Lisbon on a hot summer day, why not try the beaches of Costa da Caparica, just across the Tejo river. If you are in Lisbon for more than a few days it is worth taking a trip to the beautiful gay beaches just 30 minutes from the centre. Tourists tend to head west to the elegant resorts of Cascais and Estoril.
If you are visiting in the summer, or even spring or autumn, you may be tempted to have a city-and-beach holiday — Lisbon coast beaches are blessed with fine golden sand swept clean by Atlantic tides even if a little colder than the Mediterranean! Carcavelos beach is located approximately meters south of the train station. Walkers exercise along this seaside walkway at all times of the year and it is also illuminated at night, so a day at the beach day can easily stretch into an evening out. At the end of the rail line is CASCAISan old fishing village turned into holiday resort with an international marina well worth exploring by foot or bicycle or Segway as per previous post.
