Nackt in Kroatien Goli u Hrvatskoj Naked in Croatia I have been a naturist most of my adult life – and also as a young man – as far as it was possible in the 1960s and 70s for anyone to be naked in the quiet warm backwater that Australia’s Queensland was in those days. Curiously – or perhaps not – Queensland is still the only Australian state that does not have any legal naturist beaches anywhere along its 6793 km coastline … although there are hidden places where one can be very discretely naked in the surf. If the marine stingers – and the police – don’t turn up.
nude-4Croatia, on the other hand, has many places where a person can swim and sun without too much bother – apart from a liberal slathering of SPF 30 on tender spots – in my case the forehead and the forearms are the only parts of my old body that seem to need special protection from the sun’s rays.
Unlike, say, Barcelona, where there are no laws against public nudity and where you can occasionally see naked people walking in the city, Croatia is essentially a modest Roman Catholic country, and nudity is permitted – usually – only at designated places. Indeed, at beach towns it is not unusual to see signs on footpaths warning visitors not to enter the central areas if only wearing bathing costumes.
