Some nude books are listed at the foot of this page


In Spain it is not illegal to walk around naked in city or beach. By convention the practice is confined to both the official and non official nudist beaches.

Some of the nudist beaches are extremely popular, in fact more popular than nearby non nudist beaches referred to as 'textile'  in Spain. Many of these popular nude beaches are visited by families.

Generally nude beaches are located more on the fridge of a town or even in a remoter beach or cove between towns

Often in even remoter sections of nude beaches is a gay beach
