Nudist beaches in the area
There are quite a few nudist beaches in Benidorm and nearby, you will find the most popular listed below.
Respect other people’s privacy. Staring is not polite. Many come to the beaches to get some quiet alone time and do not want to be disturbed.
Always ask before taking photographs. Even on a public beach. Sneak Shoots with mobile cameras could lead to a fine.
No sex. Nudity is one thing, but sex is a private thing between two people to be performed elsewhere.
Come prepared. Always take your own towel, sunscreen, food. if listening to music do it quietly. Use headphones on radio or portable equipment.
Altea, has 3 nudist beaches Playa de la Solsida, Playa Mascarat Norte and Cala de la Barra Grande.
Playa de la Solside
La Solside beach is 1.400 m. in length with an average width of 8 m, located near the port of Mar y Montaña. This is a quiet isolated beach, consisting of cobble fragments and rocks, quite often there are quite strong waves. Small sections of the beach are equipped with walkways and small steps to allow the approach to the shore. If you drive the 332 direction towards Calpe. To access it you have to walk a path at the foot of large cliffs. There are no service here.
Playa Mascarat Norte
This beach is 280 meters by 21 meters wide. This is quite a popular beach in high season. Semi-urban beach without promenade mainly consisting of stone and gravel. Access from the N332.
Cala de la Barra Grande
This small gravel beach is 50 m. in length and has an average width of 7 m, this is a very quiet and isolated beach situated between Punta del Mascarat and the cove of Racó del Corb. This is the most northern cove of Altea, very close to the village of Mascarat, Greenwich Marina is also nearby.
There are no services available due to its isolation and car access is from the N332, (there is no car park so you need to look for parking in the general area), and access to the beach is quite difficult, but is worth the walk and the crystal clear waters make it a perfect spot for some snorkelling and diving.
Ti Ximo and Almadrava, Benidorm
At the foot of the Sierra Helada and to the north of the resort, there are two small coves of fine sand and rocks both Almadrava and Ti Ximo beachs are situated between steep cliffs.
These are both popular spots for nudist sunbathing but as they are not official nudist beaches they are used as such more out of season, during the summer season they are more family orientated beaches with life guard service and sun loungers. More detailed information HERE
There are no bars or restaurants on either beach, so bring refreshments and wear sensible shoes. Parking is available but very limited.
Nudist beaches - Villajoyosa
Raco del Conill, Villajoyosa, (Corner of the rabbit) - Voted Naturist of the Year 2020 by the Spanish Federation of Naturism.
Raco de Conill is possibly the best know nudist beach in the area and is in a small, quiet and beautiful bay surrounded by steep mountains, access is quite good with steps down to the beach with safety rails.
If driving use the old N332 towards Villa Joyosa and turn left at the entrance of the Casino de Villajoyosa
Platja L´Esparrello Beach - Villajoyosa
Two kilometres south of the town centre of Vila Joyosa, a very quiet beach ideal for fishing and nude bathing as this is a nudista beach. Access is by foot.
Located near the Montíboli hotel complex, this beach has a well-signposted access. However, although it has numerous parking spaces, there are certain restricted areas for residents and guests of the hotel. On the beach we can differentiate two areas: a small cove at the entrance and a longer beach with gravel surface between the sea and the cliff.
This small cove measuring 25 meters in length and 2.6 meters wide has just one mound of rock by the sea. Its a small area and its difficult access make it one of the least known sandy areas among bathers.
To get to Cala Fonda Beach by car the nearest road is the N-332, but currently the beach does not have any parking facilities so you should look for parking in the general area.
