The Costa Del Sol welcomes more than two million people a year who arrive at Malaga international airport and head to one of the many resorts located along this stretch of coastline from Gibraltar in the west to Nerja in the east.

The most well known resorts lie west of Malaga beginning with Torremolinos, Benalmadena, Fuengirola and Mijas Costa. Further along the coast lies Marbella with its famous marina at Puerto Banus, Estepona, Sotogrande and finally Gibraltar.

With the Costa del Sol weather giving average annual temperatures of 18ºC and over 300 days of sunshine per year it isn't difficult to understand why it is one of Europe's top holiday destinations.



Bora Bora is the Best Beach of the World

2008-11-12T23:18:09.315-08:00

(image) Bora Bora is in the Leeward group of the Society Islands of French Polynesia, an overseas territory of France in the Pacific Ocean. The Bora Bora island located about 230 km (140 miles) northwest of Papeete, is surrounded by a lagoon and a barrier reef. In the center of the island are the remnants of an extinct volcano rising to two peaks, Mount Pahia and Mount Otemanu, the highest point at 727 m. The original name of the Bora Bora beach in the Tahitian language might be better rendered as Pora Pora, meaning "First Born"; an early transcription found in 18th- and 19th century accounts, is Bolabolla.

The Bora Bora beach is administratively part of the commune of Bora-Bora Island, itself in the administrative subdivision of the Leeward Islands. As of 2002, the population was about 7,250 people. The major settlement, Vaitape is on the western side of the island, opposite the main channel into the lagoon. The products of the island are mostly limited to what can be obtained from the sea and coconut trees, which were historically of economic importance for copra.

Jomtien Beach is Most Popular Beach in Thailand

2008-11-12T23:18:09.431-08:00

(image) The Jomtien Beach is located about 2 kilometers from south Pattaya. This beach and the area has become more and more popular for swimming, water sports and activities because it has a long straight coastline and there are less boat anchored in the area.

There are many good hotels, bungalows, guest houses and many restaurants. A lot of tourists come to this area and enjoy the scenery and the beach. Chairs are available to sit and to have food and drink, or to go swimming. Water sports such as wind surf, water scooter, para sail, speed boat riding, even water skiing are possible.

Along the straight beach road there are so many souvenir shops, restaurants, food stalls, and good sea food restaurants are available, especially at almost the far end of the beach road.

Transportation in Pattaya and Jomtien area is simple. The open pick up cars are running all the time just like mini bus or taxi.

The Nudist Beach of Capocotta Beach in Italy

2008-11-12T23:18:09.552-08:00

(image) The beach of Capocotta is situated on the coast south of Rome, between Ostia and Tor Vaianica. It is one of the most beautiful beaches of Latium's littoral. In the 70s it was known as Il Buco (The Hole) because the first bathers reached the beach passing through a hole of the enclosure. Capocotta was part of an old estate. The owners wanted to build on it more than 1700 villas, but the Council of Public Works stopped them. Behind Capocotta Beach there are tall ancient dunes, the only ones that remain after the rest of the south coast was lotted. Nudists of the early 70s choosed Capocotta because of its beauty and because very few people used to go there as it was a wild place. Typical textil bathers in fact look for sea-side resorts or want bars and restaurants by the beach. At that time there was none of them on Capocotta and on the outskirts. But, little by little, more people came to Capocotta beach: the near beach of Castelporziano was so crowded that bathers started to look for a better place. Castelporziano free beach was frequented by people that weren't rich enough to pay for sea-side resorts of Ostia.

At the end of the 80s the situation on Capocotta beach was tragic: nudists were besieged by people with bathing-suits, moralists, exhibitionists and males staring at nudist girls. Police raids against nude people, as usually wanted by moralists, changed things for the worse. In Italy, Many nudists stopped going to Capocotta beach so came more exhibitionists, that are not afraid of the police (to them it is an exciting thrill!), and used to have sex on the beach or behind the dunes. I've been told that in the 80s Capocotta was used like back-drop for many porno movies!

Relaxing Beaches in France

2008-11-12T23:18:09.800-08:00

(image) With three different bodies of water along its coastlines France has plenty of water front for its beautiful beaches, and a variety of settings to please any sunbather. From the warm crystal blue water of the Mediterranean Sea, to the long, sandy beaches of the Atlantic Ocean, to the picturesque coastline along the English Channel, French beaches are varied and plentiful. In addition, beaches in France are know for their liberal attitude towards bathing attire, as many sunbathers tan topless, or even nude. For a more wholesome experience there are designated family beaches in some areas. Which coast you hit depends on what you’re looking for.

(image) The beaches in the south of France, nestled on the Mediterranean Sea, are typically warmer, sandier, and more expensive to vacation in than other areas of France, as the jet set crowed likes to play in the surf on the French Rivera. Nice is one of the the more modestly priced towns, while St. Tropez and Cannes are more posh, along with their coveted sandy beaches in the south of France. Of course, the glamor of a riviera vacation is sometimes worth expense, and the sunny Mediterranean can’t be beat. If you’re feeling a bit risque, there are plenty of natural and topless beaches in France. There are designated family beaches, but along the boulevards nobody seems to mind, or get to out of hand. If you brought your yacht, as many of the celebrities do, don’t limit yourself to the crowded beaches in the south of France, near the cities of the rivera, cruise up the coast and find a less crowded beach.

The beaches in France along the Atlantic are longer and less crowded then their counterparts on the French Riviera, but the bustling hot spots can get every bit as dense. The Atlantic keeps the water cooler than the Mediterranean, and the ocean waves rolling in are a boon to surfers. The northern coastline features the historic D-day beaches, as well as beaches for sunbathing and surfing.

Sanur is an excellent site to watch the sun rises, as you jog along the white sandy beach. Being one of the first resort developed in Bali, Sanur maintains its traditions. Only a stone thrown away from the beach,ancient temples stand as solemn as they have been in centuries past.Kuta and LegianKuta and Legian : Practically on the opposite side of Sanur, the beaches of Kuta and Legian stretch on the southwestern side of Bali, again only about 5 to 10 minute drive from Denpasar or the airport. Surfing is a major activity in these beaches. Shops, Kecak dance performances, pubs, and other facilities make Kuta a tourist mecca.JimbaranJimbaran is directly south of the airport, on the way from Denpasar towards Nusa Dua. The village of Jimbaran is the narrow neck of the island of Bali, and thus it has two remarkably different beaches. On the west, Jimbaran Beach faces the Jimbaran Bay, recently lined by new luxurious resorts. On the east, the beach faces the body of water sheltered by Benoa Harbor.Nusa DuaNusa Dua is a new luxurious resort area where the world's most sumptuous hotels gracefully integrate into the beautiful white beaches. Crystal clear water provides excellent snorkeling and diving site, and the waves on the northern and the southern part of Nusa Dua allow for great surfing opportunity.

North Baker Beach is Wonderful Nude Beach at San Francisco

2008-11-12T23:18:10.325-08:00

(image) North Baker Beach is considered by many to be San Francisco's most beautiful beach, with its small expanse of clean sand, super views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Marin Headlands, and its relatively protected location east of Land's End and west of the Bridge. You'll see volleyball and Frisbee players as well as dog-walkers and simple beachcombers. A large parking area separates the beach from a spacious wooded picnic area whose tables are well used by families and other large groups. Bring the camera, because the afternoon sun shining on the bridge makes for great photo ops.

his is fantastic beach for both nude and clothed beachgoers. Overall it has great scenery and is a definite must for nude beachgoers when visiting San Francisco. The water is very cold, so taking a dip feels good, but staying in the water more than a few minutes is not comfortable.

If you're into sunbathing or swimming in the buff, head north along the beach past the high tide sign on the hill. North Baker, the next beach toward the Golden Gate Bridge, is one of the Bay Area's favorite nude beaches, though clothed visitors will often wander into the area.



Boracay Island of a Sugary White Sand Beach and Azure Blue Water

2007-02-27T19:03:49.060-08:00

(image) Boracay Island combines crystal clear waters, sugary beaches and lush landscapes into an idyllic tourist haven that is guaranteed to fascinate and lull visitors into tranquil harmony with its simplistic beauty.

Travellers commonly refer to Boracay as a heart stomping, unbelievably magical Island in the middle of the Philippines. A paradise set in the South China Sea.

The small island, only seven kilometers long and one kilometer wide at its narrowest point, is located just off the northern tip of Panay Island.

(image) The northern and southern parts of the island rise with elevations of 100 meters above sea level. The Island has numerous scattered villages interconnected by a maze of intriguing jungle pathways.

Boracay boasts the world's finest beaches - a broad 3.5 kilometer stretch of drenched sand, washed by perpetually turquoise-ish water, a nature worshipper's heaven on earth.

White Beach runs almost the entire length of the western side of the island. During the peak season (December till July) White Beach is ideal for day frolics in its warm water, to cool off from those sweaty summer's tropical heat.

Similan Island Perfect Beautiful Andamanensee in Thailand

2007-02-21T19:21:49.246-08:00

(image) Mu Ko Similan a group of 9 small islands 50 kms. off the west coast of Phang-Nga in the Andaman Sea. The National Park covers an area of 80,000 rai.

Skin Diving Magazine rated them among the ten loveliest places on Earth, because of the great natural beauty found on the islands themselves and also because of the extensive surrounding coral gardens beneath the waves.

The islands are undeveloped and unspoiled; numerous species of fish, crustaceans, and other forms of sea-life abound; water clarity and diving are excellent. Similan is corrupted from the Malay Sembilan and means nine. From north to south in order the islands are: Koh Bon, Koh Ba Ngu, Koh Similan, Koh Pahyoo, Koh Miang (two islands), Koh Pahyan, Koh Payahng andKoh Hu Yong.

Koh Ba Ngu: is also called Hua Gah Lok or Skull Island. Beneath the waters, a field of grass and coral appear to be growing in a deep valley. Schools of fish are everywhere.

Koh Similan: is the largest island. It has a long curving bay, and beneath the waters coral reefs remain pristine. The beach is composed of fine grain sand. Diving to look at the fishes and corals is strongly recommended. At the island's northend are bizarrely shaped big boulders; one looks like a soldier's boot, another is shaped like a sailboat. Here also is an excellent view.

Koh Miang: is actually two islands connected and forms the second largest land mass in the group after Koh Similan. The National Park Office is here, and there is a fine beach where visitors can stay.

Koh Hu Yong: has the Similans longest white sandy beach. From November till February sea turtles come up to lay eggs and their tracks may be seen in the sand.

Travel to the Mu Ko Similans Phang-Nga Thailand

(image) Is easy from either Phang-Nga or Phuket. Chartered boats leave from Lap Lamu Pier in Tai Meuang District of Phang-Nga and take about 3 hours to reach the islands.

Here is also the office of National Park located. Alternatively, trips to the Similans can be arranged in Phuket. A boat trip from Patong Beach takes 4 hours. Divers, however, go to the islands on boats that leave from Patong Beach and also take 4 hours by diving companies. Moreover, visitors can leave from Chalong Bay on scuba diving excursions.

These leave in the evenings and take about 7 hours. A typical dive trip lasts 4 nights and 3 days, and includes 10 dives. Prices range from 9,000 to 25,000 baht, depending on the level of luxury, and include food, and accommodations. The Similans are regarded as mainly "deep water" diving.

The best time to visit the Similan islands is from December through April, March being the best month, when the winds are lowest and the water clearest.

Hanalei Bay Beach Best Beach in Hawaii

2007-02-12T22:49:49.883-08:00

(image) Lovely Hanalei Bay on Kauai’s North Shore may be the most beautiful beach setting in all of Hawaii. Hanalei is the largest bay on the island of Kauai and nearly a perfect semi-circle of white sand.

Behind the beach is an utterly breathtaking backdrop of waterfalls and emerald mountain peaks wrapped in mist, soaring thousands of feet towards the heavens. The beach is two miles long, 125 feet wide, and bordered by the Hanalei River to the east and the Waipa River to the west.

The ocean bottom slopes gently to overhead depths, and there are large coral reefs at both ends of the bay. Every ocean recreation activity you can imagine is available, from boating and windsurfing to kayaking up the placid Hanalei River.

The bay is very popular with serious surfers. There is a public boat ramp and a 300-foot long pier used for fishing and swimming. The many “no dogs” and “no jumping off the pier” signs are blissfully ignored.

Pasir Panjang Beach, Malaysia

2007-01-28T18:45:15.130-08:00

(image) Pasir Panjang Beach, Malaysia or affectionately known as Long Beach, is the longest stretch of white sandy beach in Redang. It is located on the eastern side of the island.

There are a lot of resorts on this stretch, ranging for basic ones like Redang Reef Resort to the architecturally-wonderful Laguna Redang Beach Resort.

Pasir Panjang beach, Malaysia has the highest concentration of sun worshippers since almost all of Redang's resorts are located at here.

The water is extremely crystal clear. During the day, the beach is buzzing with a hive of beach activities. There are at least 3 or 4 beach volleyball courts stretching along the shoreline. Occasionally, you can also find the tourists and locals playing beach soccer or futsal.

The mid-section of Pasir Panjang Beach, Malaysia is devoid of any coral growth, providing sun-worshippers with an excellent swimming area. You will be amazed by the colour of the ocean that ranges from deep blue to light milky blue especially during a sunny day.

For avid snorkelers, there is a family of baby sharks roaming around on the far left-end of the beach in a snorkeling spot called Tanjung Tengah. There is 90% chance of you spotting them, so this is an opportunity not to be missed! Otherwise, on the far right hand side is a decent snorkeling spot called Tanjung Mak Cantik which is fronting Redang Reef Resort.

In short, activities galore on this beautiful beach. Just get your sun-tan lotions and sun-shade, then head here.

2007-01-16T19:29:39.803-08:00

(image) Black Rock Beach is one of the best beaches on Maui. Black Rock Beach is excellent for beginning snorkelers and swimmers to experienced SCUBA divers. Coral and tropical fish are abundant.

Black Rock Beach is the northernmost section of Kaanapali Beach. A beachwalk winds through Kaanapali with easy access to beachfront hotels, shopping and restaurants.

Black Rock is the site where ancient Hawaiians believed that their spirits "jumped off" or left this world. Each island has such a spot.

It was believed that a spirit left this world to join it ancestors. If there were no ancestors to greet the spirit, it would wander the earth causing mischief.

Black Rock divides the beautiful beaches of Ka'anapali and Kahekili. Resorts line the coast but there are several public beach accesses available. This area is the site of one of the last volcanic eruptions on Maui.

(image) Snorkeling and scuba diving is especially good in this area as Black Rock forms a great reef wall. Locals are often seen diving into the deep waters around the rock.

Hours of Operation

Ka'anapali beach is open 24 hours a day, although some of the parking facilities claim to tow after a certain time.

Enjoy your time in the Black Rock Beach.

Number of Nude and Naturist Beaches of South America

2006-12-06T23:06:03.490-08:00

(image) Imagine a trip alongside the coast of more than half of South America. Exotic places, different styles, habits and colonization. This is what the Brazilian coast has to offer you. If somehow you are able to cover the distance by car or by bus, from North to South, you will feel like you have been in at least six or seven countries. Even the language differs! Let is try to show you a bit of this rich culture and wonderful places you have to visit on the Atlantic seaside of Brazil. Our trip starts in the Brazilian Northern border, near the French Guyana.

There are a number of nude and/or naturist beaches and clubs in Central America and the Caribbean, but to date, relatively few in South America. Naturism is a way of life in harmony with nature characterised by the practice of communal nudity, with the intention of encouraging self-respect, respect for others and for the environment.

It is our goal to share everything we know about nudism and naturism with you in the hopes that you will share your experiences with us! Our guides to nude beaches are submitted by real nudists and naturists. if you are under 18, please ask your parents to look at the site with you. If for whatever reason you do not wish to view non-sexual Photos of nude beaches.

After visiting the famous Beaches of Rio de Janeiro where the skimpiest amount of cloth passes for a tanga, thong bathing suit, or the even minuter version called fio dental or dental floss, and beach goers revel in exposing almost their entire bodies, it isn't surprising that Brazil is one of the few South American countries that have legalized nude or naturist beaches and resorts.

Sandy Cay - Another sugar sand beach of tiny white granules. You'll find seclusion here, and lots of shells to enjoy, too.

Nassau / New Providence

Love Beach - This is a great beach if you want to go snorkeling. Book an excursion with a local dive operator, and enjoy acres upon acres of coral and marine life. The best snorkeling is about a mile from shore. The beach itself is quiet and secluded.

These are some (but not all) of the best beaches in the Bahamas. Of course, each beach has something to offer, and there are many other attractive beaches.

2006-11-15T19:29:28.016-08:00

(image) In heavenly Hana, Maui is wonderful Hawaiian hamlet located on the isolated east shore, you'll find a beautiful view from the distinctive local landmark, Ka uiki Head of the beautiful coastline, offshore Alau Island, and the Hotel Hana Maui Plantation Cottages.

Hana, in East Maui, has beaches of many colors and sizes. Kaihalulu (Roaring Sea), or Red Sand Beach, is worth a trip on the legendary Hana Highway. This beach, Located on the far side of Ka uiki Hill south of Hana Bay is Kaihalulu, better known as Red Sand Beach. The sand gets its red-black color from the crumbling cindercone hill that surrounds the bay. Swimming is poor except when the ocean is very calm. The path to the beach is slippery due to the crumbling cinder and pine needles from the ironwood trees. But the view of the red sand against the blue sea bracketed by the green ironwood trees and a rocky lava sea wall is unmatched! This beach is very isolated and nude sunbathers sometimes visit the area.

Access to the beach is tricky, due to its wild, remote setting. Be sure to wear sturdy shoes or sandals. Take Uakea Road beyond the turnoff to Hana Bay. Keep going until you pass tennis courts on the right and a community center on the left. Across a field between the community center and a hotel, pick up a path. Take the path to a Japanese cemetery and turn right. The trail is steep and slippery and you will need to hang on to the ironwood trees. The trail suddenly turns a corner and into view comes the stunning red beach.
