Nudism has been a growing popular phenomenon over the past few years. Many people have turned it into their lifestyle, others see a form of perversion in it and some people make a living out of it. Nowadays, you may find camping areas, swimming pools and even entire villages of nudists! Nevertheless, this nudism fashion seeks its place in our societies.
Germany is one country with a major nudist tradition whereas Spain has only allowed nudism for about 20 years. Before the 80’s, a law inherited from Franco would condemn behaviours that offended “decency, good habits and that would provoke scandals”.
Fortunately, over time nudism has become part of modern culture and has expanded to Spain. Barcelona is the perfect case study: lots of beaches in Barcelona are opened to nudists. You may even walk down the street naked if you feel like it, there’s a law protecting people’s nudity (although it is not so common to see naked people walk around).
Barcelona offers many incredible beaches for nudists, with lots of services available too: Red Cross watch, renting of hammocks, refreshment stall, toilets… you’ll find them near very reachable metro stations such as: Barceloneta, Ciutadella, Bogatell, Poblenou, Llacuna, Selva de Mar and El Maresme and Forum. It’s also the case of Sant Sebastiá’s beach, Nova Icària, Bogatell, Mar Bella, Nova Mar Bella and Llevant.
If you get out of the city, Sitges has a semi urban beach called Balmins that’s very popular among nudists. Another famous beach is Home Mort but it’s somewhat complicated to get there. Garraf offers the Dune Park Beach (in Castelldefels), where the nudist zone is closer to Gava; there’s also the small beach of Morisca.
For those who like the area near Maresme go to Masnou beach, there’s a pedestrian access; or try Musclara in Caldes d’Estac, also easy to reach and with a cleaning service. Other famous nudist beaches are Murtra (Sant Pol de Mar), Forti (Mataró) and Roca Grossa (Calella).
