Nude Vacations in Portugal: A Naturist Road Trip

Nude Vacations in Portugal: A Naturist Road Trip

If there’s one country in Europe that is still off the radar of most naturist travelers, it must be Portugal. How many of you knew that there are any naturist places in Portugal before we started blogging about the country a month ago? Honestly, we didn’t know either. Only when we were contacted by the friendly people of Quinta Do Maral, the country appeared on our map as well. Really? A naturist camping in Portugal? Would this be the only…

The Naturist Talks: Marc from France

Naturism is a wonderful lifestyle that we try to enjoy as much as possible. In as many places as possible.

Via this Naturist Talks interview series, we listen to naturists from all over the world. They share their experiences, tips and stories about naturism and thanks to…

Nude Beaches around Lisbon

Nude Beaches around Lisbon

Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, is one of Europe’s most famous city trip destinations. A city that’s full of exciting architecture and culture and delicious foods and drinks. Then there is its historical importance as being the gateway to new worlds.

Musings About Naturism and Religion

Musings About Naturism and Religion

This is one of those subjects which we’ve been trying to avoid during all those years of blogging. The combination of naturism or nudism and religion. The reason for this is that it’s such a difficult subject to take a stand. There’s no right or wrong. There’s no proof to rely on. It’s all just about ideas, beliefs and opinions. And it can be seen from so many different angles. Is it possible for naturism and religion to go hand…

Review: Samonatura in south Alentejo, Portugal

Review: Samonatura in south Alentejo, Portugal

Our visit to Samonatura, in the very south of Portugal’s Alentejo region, had quite some emotional value. Not only would this be our last stop in the country, the moment when we would leave Samonatura would also be the end of our huge nude European road trip. Well, all good things have to come to an end eventually and as soon as we walked into Samonatura we knew that we couldn’t have picked a better spot to end our journey….

Naturalis 2019: More Than Naturism and Yoga

Naturalis 2019: More Than Naturism and Yoga

We have to admit, the first moment when we walked into naturist camping Quinta Do Maral was something many might call… ehm… a bit awkward. We had parked our car, walked to the reception and in the distance we spotted a group of about 25 naked people. Nothing particularly strange for a naturist place, except that all of them were in an intimate embrace.   There is a reason why we didn’t mention this in our review of Quinta Do…

Review: Quinta Do Maral in North Alentejo, Portugal

Review: Quinta Do Maral in North Alentejo, Portugal

Names like Lisbon, Porto or Algarve often even ring a bell for those who haven’t even visited Portugal before. These are the tourist highlights of the country. The pages of the Lonely Planet guide between which everyone puts a Post-It. But of course Portugal is much more than that. Those who take the time to get off the beaten track are rewarded with wonderful landscapes, hills and forests, sleepy towns and historical villages. And best of all, beautiful naturist campings….

How to Book Your Nude Vacation Without a Travel Agency

Exactly two weeks ago, news from the travel industry hit the world like a nuclear bomb. Thomas Cook, the world’s oldest travel firm collapsed. Resulting in chaos at airports and in hotels all over the world. Just like that, Thomas Cook stopped existing. But was it really just like that?   Honestly, we kinda saw this one coming. Not Thomas Cook in particular but travel agencies in general. The last time we booked a trip via an agency was back…

Review: Monte Naturista O Barão in south Alentejo, Portugal

Review: Monte Naturista O Barão in south Alentejo, Portugal

When you travel a lot, your mind tends to play a trick mixing up different locations into one. It’s like those weird dreams in which you realise that something is just not right. If only you could put your finger on it. Like that time when we woke up from an afternoon nap in one of our lounge chairs at Monte Naturista O Barão. Still a bit hazy from sleeping under the afternoon sun, we wondered how we ended up…
