The adepts of naturism are more and more in Portugal. At times, there is nothing more liberating than entering the sea as we see the world. You just want to have a tan without bikini marks… Know what is your reason for practicing nudism, there are no shortage of nudism beaches in Portugal for you to do. First of all, it is convenient to differentiate between official and non-official nudism beaches.
The official beaches are the first 9 of this list that we elaborate and spread a little throughout the country. Some of the nudism beaches are not official. These beaches, although not licensed, provide an ideal environment for the practice of nudism and, in general, the rest of the people are allowed to do so.
As in all cases, be aware of the possibility of the existence of “voyeurs” in these nudism beaches, or seja, no nudists who hardly move these places to observe the naturists. These are the best nudism beaches in Portugal (divided between official and non-official).
1. Praia da Ilha de Tavira (official)
It is not far from this island of Tavira, and access to the local area is by boat, from cais de Tavira or das Quatro-Águas. In the beach area, you will find several tourist facilities and non-area bars, as well as infrastructures for the practice of nautical activities or for walks along the Formosa River.
2. Praia das Adegas (official)
You will find a small school, at Sul da praia de Odeceixe. At the low sea, it is accessible by the areal from Vizinha Beach, and, at the high sea, the only access is through the pedestrian path, which descends to Falésia. This road will lead to the parking lot that serves both areas, next to the lookout point at the top of Falésia.
3. Praia dos Alteirinhos (official)
This nudism beach has a parking lot at the top of Falésia, the starting point for the access to the area.

5. Praia do Salto (official)
This is one of the smallest and most beautiful beaches of the Costa Vicentina, with access to the area through a narrow road, but in a good state of conservation. This oasis for naturists has a water base of twelve, which runs from Falésia, and access steps. Na maré baixa, you can access praia da Cerca Nova.
6. Praia da Bela Vista (official)
The naturist area is located between 400 meters from Sul da Praia da Bela vista and 700 meters from Norte da Praia da Fonte da Telha. A beach is enveloped by hills and fine sand. It is not a very familiar beach, due to the frequency of onlookers, who hide above all in dunes and bushes.
7. Praia da Adiça (official)
It is also known as Praia da NATO, since it is very close to the NATO military base (also, you will have to park a few meters before the entrance to the base). Don’t be scared by the military warnings, since the trilho outlines the vedação pela direita without anyone on the risk and without infringing the law.

10. Praia da Murração (unofficial)

I have an acolhedor areal, surrounded by imposing hills and clear waters. The enveloping vegetation invites you to a pleasant walk, since in the end you can cool off in the sea. It is popular among naturism adepts, since it is a rather modest space and less frequented than the vizinha beaches.
13. Praia do Beliche (unofficial)
This sheltered beach seems to have been excavated from the tall falésias that surround it, and that gives it a different touch to the local.
