nudists attempt to establish clothing optional space on Cypriot beaches

Partial blind eye turned on nudism

Public nudity is creeping onto popular beaches, according to local authorities, which are trying to stamp out the practice.

There are no legal nudist beaches in the republic and a number of beaches, including at Avdimou, now have signs warning: ‘No nudism.’ Appearing nude in public is illegal and this includes on beaches, but over the years some of the more remote beaches have been the unofficial haunts of nudists who have been left alone by the authorities.

But Lazaros Lazarou, the community leader of Pissouri, said that at the end of the summer season last year, a number of nudists, both men and women, made an appearance on the public beach at Pissouri Bay, an area popular with locals, families and holidaymakers.

He said that this broke an ‘unspoken understanding’ in place for decades under which nudism would be tolerated at an area away from the main beach, but not on the beach of Pissouri Bay.

“Last year they (nudists) tried to make a presence on the left side of Pissouri Bay which is not acceptable and Pissouri council decided not to allow them on the beach if they come again this year,” Lazarou said.

“This happened in October and we had a number of complaints from families with kids. They were both men and women apparently. The families were surprised to see them on the bay.”

    Let’s hope they can make a difference without making a problem of themselves. Slow and steady usually works best but I can imagine they’re getting tired of that at some point.

    It seems they (nudist)are pushing the boundaries here when they already had a good thing going. But then again why are so many afraid for others to see nude bodies, especially families and children. Children are the most natural nudist of all until corrupted by society.
