28-11-2018Lovely open beach with only about 300 metre walk from the car park alongside the naturist campsite. Plenty of room for walking naked about 500 metres to the west and about the same eastwards...you stop at the textile beach and campsite in that direction. There is a good snack bar just a few metres into the textile area...so you have to slip shorts on for that short journey! Sea is ideal for swimming as my wife loves to do.
26-11-2019(Public sea pool and cliffs/walks only. Not accommodation.
Charco Del Palo seems to be a place that engenders a great deal of love from the people that like it and seemingly keep returning year after year. We had a couple of half days there recently and I have got to say we were somewhat underwhelmed. The village contains some lovely properties and I freely admit it was not an unpleasant feeling wandering around the streets with just my sand shoes on.
The sea pool and terraces are in need of some TLC, the slope into the pool is very slippery even with a grab rail...it would not pass health and safety in the U.K...but it a pleasant swim with the seawater being constantly refreshed through sluice holes and numerous fish swimming around. A couple of lorry loads of sand would make a tremendous difference to the degree of comfort on the terraces...it is very hard and uncomfortable on bare skin...and...dare I say it, a toilet would make the biggest difference both to people’s comfort and to the numerous pieces of a certain type of litter scattered on the hills surrounding.
To make improvements obviously finance is involved and that is where I don’t understand the mechanics of exactly who owns it and who is responsible for maintenance especially if there is an accident.
We gave it 3 stars, never feeling quite comfortable there. We moved on to the isolated but lovely beaches just south of Orzola where naturism is accepted but unofficial...the sand and rock holes are perfect for a quiet few hours but the sea is just for admiring beyond the jagged lava foreshore.
28-10-2019Lovely, a number of loosely connected coves with a fair amount of soft white sand...the lava does dominate though and restricts entry to the sea. There are ways in to the water and a number of rock pools to cool off in can be reached but you will need something on your feet. As in Fuerteventura there are plenty of lava holes that people have built to protect from the wind. All in all very peaceful and easily accessible from the road...there are a number of pull ins alongside the other side of the Orzola road. Not very many people around during our visits, but those we did see were overwhelming naturist.
16-09-2019The ‘Grand Plage’ on the Ile d’Oleron is a truly wonderful naturist beach stretching for 4 or 5 miles south from the edge of the textile area which is about 300 metres from the car park exit. The road to the car park is about a mile and a half from the roundabout at the Port of St Trojan Les Bains. It is tarmac throughout but the entrance is guarded by a height bar restricting camper vans etc. There is a car park which caters for around a hundred cars at the end plus bays further along the road. You need to be there by 10:30 in high season or you will find your walk getting longer and longer!
The demarcation between the naturist and textile beaches is clearly marked by posts, strangely there is a 100 metre ‘no mans land’ which is occupied by no one. The naturist beach is quiet even at the busiest summer period and is mainly couples and families, on the days we were there even a majority of women. You only need to walk another few hundred metres and you will have the beach to yourselves barring a few walkers. There is a toilet at the car park and a refreshment caravan doing light snacks.
05-08-2019Update this year.....a lot more naturists to be seen, predominantly couples. Still lots of space, the naturist area has expanded and now starts just a couple of hundred metres from the Paree Grollier car park. Still a delightful place with walking possible for around a kilometre.
10-02-2019Lovely open sandy beach, big waves on the day we visited which may not suit children, with quite an undertow. Car park within 500 metres of the naturist beaches but not an arduous walk. No facilities.
08-02-2019Stunning beaches abound in Fuerteventura, you find it difficult to define where beach and desert begin. Corraljo is perhaps the best but it is a matter of opinion...you can walk naked for at least a couple of miles from the parking area on the main road but the naturist area is quite ill defined, you almost feel you can be naked straight from your car! (See pictures) Lovely beach and sea but it is true that the water is often carrying quite a swell and undertow on a steeply shelving beach but guards are on duty. Real mix of naturist and textile which takes a bit of getting used to, but no one seems bothered either way. Not crowded when we were there in September, but you can only get there by parking on the road which in itself restricts the numbers on the beach. Nearest large car park is at the hotels about 4 miles to the north which is a fair trek.
15-10-2018Visited the official nudist beach on Rhodes at Mandomata (Faliraki) today....exceeded our expectations in many ways. Lovely atmosphere with decent sun loungers for hire at 5€ a day, real mix of nationalities and ages with a majority of couples. The beach is well supervised with two clean toilet blocks and a bar/cafe serving a good range of decent food and Amstel on draught! The beer served in ice cold tankards to take to your spot on the beach...lots of other beverages if you’re driving. This beach had a poor reputation about ten to fifteen years ago but as far as we could see that has been put right. My wife was more than happy to go naked without hesitation as there were many women throughout the beach. Buoys keep the curious pleasure boats at a reasonable distance (but what is a reasonable distance with modern cameras?)...no matter they are no threat. We will pay another visit (at least one) before we leave.
16-08-2018Still super! Huge beach, very quiet, nothing to detract from enjoying a great naturist experience. Enjoyed searching for sea glass and lovely walks.
12-02-2018Having visited Voidokilia twice it really is the most beautiful setting, the water is crystal clear and is protected from the heavier swell of the open sea by the two arms of the bay. Quiet and never crowded my wife loved to swim in the bay for long periods, it never gets really deep just watch some of the stones underfoot can be sharp. Parking is free but there are no facilities probably because there is not a huge amount of room for cars...the beach is at the end of a lane about 2kilometres off the main road. You need to bring food and drink with you.
It really is the most idyllic spot, we had a little naturist company with a couple from Norway who have been many times and a few local couples.
15-03-2015Plenty of naturists around when we visited late July 2014. Lots of dunes behind the beach with one or two "observers" but not intrusive. Lovely open beach.
