Portugal is a fantastic place for naturists to visit. You will find eight official naturist beaches and dozens more where naturism is standard procedure.

Naturism has existed in Portugal from around 1920 and is no law against nudity. The Portuguese are relaxed about nudity and nudism is widespread. You will find many beaches suitable for naturism in the north, but due to the climate and the quality of sand, most are within a 30km radius of Lisbon and on the Costa Vicentina, bordering the Algarve. You will find only a handful between Porto and the Spanish border.

There is also a range of naturist and naturist-friendly accommodation options including guesthouses, campsites, and hotels. And, of course, there are plenty of private villas. There are also several naturist clubs and associations that organise activities aimed preferably at its federated members.

Portugal has over 1800km of coastline and 300 days of sunshine a year. Public nudity is not against the law, an offence is only committed if somebody feels morally offended and files a complaint.

There are currently nine official naturist beaches in Portugal with the majority concentrated along the Western Algarve and a few more along Alentejo's Atlantic coast. Whilst none of the Lisbon/Cascais beaches are considered naturist some of the finest in the country can be found around the corner near Sintra or just across the river at Costa da Caparica.

The four official naturist beaches in the Algarve are Adegas at Odeceixe, Ilha Deserta off the coast of Faro, Barril on the Ilha de Tavira and Meia Praia in Lagos. There are plenty more where nudity is accepted, or where all or part of the beach has become naturist in practice.

Here you will find over 50 beaches where nudity is practised. If you are looking for a naturist place to stay, there are campsites, hotels, resorts and bed and bed breakfasts. This means you don’t have to limit yourself to getting that perfect tan on the beach: you can get it at your accommodation as well.
