The Canary Islands are a Spanish archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean just 100 kilometres west of Morocco. The eight main islands are (from largest to smallest) Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, La Palma, La Gomera, El Hierro and La Graciosa. There are other smaller islands and islets: Alegranza, Isla de Lobos, Montaña Clara, Roque del Oeste and Roque del Este.





 Nudism
In the Canary Islands, nudism is common at virtually every non-urban beach in Fuerteventura, Lanzarote or La Graciosa. The other islands have also many options for nudists, for a total of more than 100 beaches and a dozen totally or partially clothes optional resorts in the archipielago.

If you already knew myNudeBeaches.com you will notice a small change. Small because the old content is still there (please give us a few days). But significant, because the way to reach it will be different.
Instead of having a list with all the posts about beaches or nudist resorts, which was already too long, now on the main page what you will find are only the maps of the different countries or regions. From them is where you can access the information of each beach.
In addition, we are simplifying the information in the posts and coding it with symbols and colors to try to make it more agile and easy to read.
We hope you like the change!
