My European Adventure Into Naturism
So I arrived at the camp later that day. It’s called Camp Full Monte. It was started by a super affable English couple, Steve and Denise. The wonderful thing about it was that it wasn’t just “naturist camping.” It was rather like staying in a friend’s beautiful and prolific naturist garden where you can lay out, read, nap, knit or whatever. From the moment you take your clothes off you feel like you’re in a veritable Garden of Eden. The entire layout of their venture was really thoughtful and charming. The owners themselves are great company and committed to your time there. And their guests were very outgoing people interested in getting to know everyone.
Just a short ferry ride from Krk Island meets the 3 Star FKK camping Baldarin site on Cres, Island. A huge population of the naturist community here is German, as I walked through the campsite it was full of tents, campers and whispers in German.
secret clothes free beaches
You know it’s true: nothing on this Earth feels better than hitting the ocean wearing nothin’ but your birthday suit.
But why are Americans so shy about swimming in the buff, and why are European nudist beaches so darn crowded? The only answer, it seems, is to veer off Europe’s beaten path to the continent’s secret nudie paradises. Drop your pants and grab your goggles!
Getting naked in Europe
It’s not that everyone wanders around starkers in the street, but in the right situation nudity is much more acceptable than it would be at home. At the beach, for instance. I felt like a Victorian who’d time-travelled into the 21st century at the Spanish seaside last week. My bikini was embarrassingly chaste next to the standard level of dress, which was not much at all.
Freeing Your Body in Europe (Nudity and All That)
Despite increasing resistance to nude bodies in recent times, it’s a movement that hasn’t waned a whole lot in Europe since the term was coined in Essen 114 years ago. If you’re from a more puritanical environment, you may not know about the opportunities you have to keep an outfit unworn on your vacation and thus cut down on the time you spend looking for a laundromat or washing things in that tiny hotel sink
