Naturism is a widespread practice in France, but it is lived in places especially designed for this way of living. The infrastructures are thus of very good quality there. But you could also live your naturist passion elsewhere in Europe and abroad. Spain and Germany are for example two naturist destinations of choice but not only.
QUALITY INFRASTRUCTURES IN FRANCE
If you seek a naturist camp-site which answers all your needs and enables you to get closer to the nature, France is one of the destinations of choice. The Hexagon counts enough naturist villages distributed in the four corners of the territory, at the seaside as well as in the full countryside. The FEN alone counts 30 campsites.
The country also proposes naturist beaches entirely reserved for lovers of this way of living. It is thus possible to feel completely at ease there, provided that the delimitations of the naturist spaces are well respected.
NATURISM IN SPAIN AND GERMANY
In Spain, to be naturist is rather common and it is not rare to cross naked and dressed people on the same beach. In the country, nudity in general is legal and rather well tolerated, except in certain very touristic cities like Barcelona or Las Palmas. Officially, there are no naturist beaches in Spain, so you won‘t find any signs marking the boundaries.
In Germany, nudity is far from being taboo and is even quite anchored in the culture. For example, it is very common to come across naked people in a sauna or a hammam, where it is rather the bathing suits which are the exception. Also, in parks, nudity is tolerated in areas protected from passers-by.
AND ELSEWHERE IN THE WORLD?
Some European countries constitute naturist destinations of choice: apart from Germany or Spain, Greece, Croatia or the south of Italy are also appreciated. Elsewhere in the world, the practice of naturism is more restricted but there are nevertheless spots of choice.
In Australia, the beach of Maslin Beach, in the south of Adelaide, is for example a well-known corner.
In Brazil, some beaches are also authorized to nudists, although the practice is less widespread than one thinks.
