Greece is one of the main tourist destinations in the world, combining a rich cultural heritage with uncountable beaches in the Eastern Mediterranean. Even if few of them are officially sanctioned, there is a large number of places where nude sunbathing is possible. Gymnos is an Android app that helps you find them.



Thiss app is really simple, it just shows a map of Greece with the position of the nude beaches. You can navigate through the map to select one of them, and then Gymnos redirects you to the Google Maps app. No additional information is shown.



The benefit of Gymnos is, then, to list together all the nude beaches in Greece, and so to evaluate it we can check how exhaustive that list is.

We have compared the number of beaches in this app and in three well known sites which can be taken as a reference: NakedPlacesCap'n Barefoot and NudistCompass.

Let's see a few examples:

Chania (Crete)

23
Athens

In this sample we can see that Gymnos includes 80% of the beaches in NakedPlaces, but only 48% of those in Cap'n Barefoot. That is normal, since the later is the bible of naturism in Greece and its detailed information also includes beaches where nudism is no longer possible or only in certain periods of the year.

The last column let us compare Gymnos with Nudist Compass, another app to find nude places around the world. In this comparison Gymnos is clearly below, but we have to take into account that Nudist Compass, as we have already explained in this post, allows users to add new beaches, so those results may not be verified.

We can see that Gymnos does not provide anything really new if we already know our destination, but it does allow us to find the nudist beaches that exist in any area of Greece very quickly. And above all, it simplifies the task to look for the route towards them.

Cala de Roca Plana, or Becs, is a beautiful cove (or better, a series of tiny coves) in a natural environment near Tarragona. An exception in an area where most beaches have experienced a great tourist development.

La joya secreta de las playas nudistas de Llanes. Sin la popularidad de la vecina playa de Torimbia, pero con la misma arena dorada y aguas cristalinas. Nunca hay mucha gente en este tranquilo rincón de la costa asturiana.

Si estás de vacaciones en Lanzarote es probable que te alojes en una de las zonas turísticas alrededor de las fabulosas playas del sur o la costa oeste. Si eres nudista, casi seguro que habrás oído hablar de las maravillosas playas de Papagayo muy cerca de Playa Blanca.
Pero en esta pequeña isla la variedad de paisajes es sorprendente. Te perderás grandes experiencias si no visitas la costa norte, especialmente si eres nudista y te gustan los lugares fuera de la ruta habitual.

South Africa is the southernmost country in Africa. It is bounded on the south by 2,798 kilometres of coastline along the South Atlantic and Indian Oceans; on the north by the neighbouring countries of Namibia, Botswana, and Zimbabwe; and on the east and northeast by Mozambique and Swaziland; and surrounds the kingdom of Lesotho.

South Africa has a generally temperate climate. Due to the varied topography and oceanic influence, a great variety of climatic zones exist. The climatic zones range from the extreme desert of the southern Namib in the farthest northwest to the lush subtropical climate in the east along the Mozambique border and the Indian Ocean. Winters in South Africa occur between June and August. The extreme southwest has a climate similar to that of the Mediterranean with wet winters and hot, dry summers. This region is also particularly known for its wind, which blows intermittently almost all year.

Tourist industry accounts for a substantial amount of the country's revenue. South Africa offers a wide variety of options. Some of the most popular destinations include several national parks, the coastlines and beaches of the KwaZulu-Natal and Western Cape provinces, and the major cities.

Esta playa virgen prácticamente aislada en la costa oeste de Gran Canaria es un paraíso de paz y tranquilidad. Aunque hay la alternativa de llegar en barco, el largo camino hacia Güi-Güi es casi tan espectacular como la propia playa.

Little cove in the north side of Cap de Creus in Costa Brava. Amazingly quiet at the bottom of a bay, this is a natural beach not far from the town and easily accessible. It's not exactly a nude beach, but it's normal to find nudists there.

Es difícil imaginar una ubicación mejor para un camping naturista: en una región donde el sol y la temperatura acompañan buena parte del año, justo al lado de una playa casi inaccesible por otro lado, rodeado de montañas que garantizan la privacidad, y lo suficientemente bien comunicado para poder disfrutar de otras atracciones turísticas de la zona. Añádase a esto las instalaciones de las que dispone y la gran variedad de opciones de alojamiento, y no es de extrañar que se haya convertido en una referencia no solo en España, sino en buena parte del mundo.
