Travel Types - Nudist beaches

Ever felt like casting off your clothes and just being at one with nature, well even if you haven't there are a lot of visitors to Crete who do this on a regular basis or has been part of their lifestyle for many years.

Nude sunbathing comes with a few do’s and don’ts - we will cover these here and give you a few recommendations to nude sunbathing in Crete.

•  Firstly the main do’s and don’ts of nude sunbathing are:  lewd behaviour is not tolerated, either is photographs or filming.  Don’t stare or gawp at others as this behaviour isn't tolerated either.  By not following the rules you will be asked to leave a nudist beach.

•  Some beaches are split into certain areas, for couples, families, singles and gay.  Make sure you choose the right area to sunbathe in.

•  Remember to take sun block, if you have never been to a nudist beach before then you will burn badly as some areas of your body may never have seen sunlight....

•  Some nudist beaches are clothing optional, so if your not too confident these beaches may be the best start.

If your looking for nude beaches in Crete then we have listed a few for you start with.

For the east side of Crete try a small nudist beach near Hersonissos and Anissaras, its quite easily accessible shingle beach which sits at the bottom of a small cliff.  You can be overlooked by non nude people from the cliff areas, so if your a first timer or quite shy just be aware of this.

The south edge of the island near Sfakia has a wonderfully named beach called Sweetwater Beach.  This beautiful stretch gets its name from the springs of water that bubble under the stones at the back of the beach.  There is a Taverna at the western end of the beach where boats from Loutro and Chora Sfakia dock.  This beach is much more remote and can only be accessed on foot via Loutro.

If you need more information on nudist beaches in Crete then use Captain barefoot's guide.

Hopefully these tips will come in handy to new and veteran travellers alike.  If you have any tips you think could benefit new travellers then please feel free to submit your travel tips to us
