Swimming and bathing naked is sometimes a rare treat, especially if you want blue water and breathtaking views. If you long for total freedom among other naturists, you should go for Crete next summer. This Greek island offers everything you could wish for and there are plenty of opportunities – if you know where they are. (picture of Crete beach)

Crete, like many other Greek islands, are well known and appreciated among travellers looking for sun and baths. This BIG island really has everything you could wish for. That this is true also for nude travellers, is not as well known. But there are lots of places for those who prefer a bath without clothes. Most of these places are quiet, remote beaches or coves. Hide away gems!

Here is how you find them:

* Use our global map. Zoom in Crete, and see if one of our pinned beaches is close to your location! You find the map here>>

* Plan your trip. Since the island is big, you might need to plan your trip in beforehand. Maybe you want to find some where to stay close to one of the beaches? Or why not travel around and visit several? Using our map will help you find some of the best beaches for naturist.

* Ask you hotel or host for where you can find a place where nude baths are allowed. (See below) There is also a private beach belonging to a naturist hotel on the south side, where you can visit if you pay for a day-pass.

* Go to any beach and look for other nude bathers. Almost every beach on the island give you the opportunity to take a naked bath. Just walk as far as you can on the beach away from the crowd. If you are first at the spot and no signs says it’s strictly forbidden. Go for it!

Throughout Greece, only a few licensed areas allow naturism. In reality, nudism is tolerated in a number of places.

Is nudism allowed in Greece?Greece

Greece, with all those little islands and beaches, are very popular among travelers.

But is it a good place for naturist and nude swimmers?

Yes and no.

Throughout Greece, only a few licensed areas allow naturism. But in reality, nudism is tolerated in a number of places. Almost every beach we visited, that is not too close to a crowded tourist center, offer a spot for naturist baths.

Most of these places are quiet, remote beaches or coves. Hide away gems that allows you total freedom in many ways!

Be ware that the situation might change suddenly or seasonally. High season and holiday time brings many Greek families to the beach and more people than at other times. Crowdy beaches can mean that the space provided for nude baths shrink dramatically.

Do use your common sense and avoid deliberately shocking textile bathers. Have in mind that Crete is still a deeply traditional place and being nude on a beach is not always considered “normal”. Topless sunbathing is more accepted though!
