The Spanish nudist beach which is the largest in the world – complete with naturist bars and hotel

A BEACH in Spain is the largest nudist beach in the world – and it even has naturist bars and hotel.

Vera, on the Almeria coast, is one of the few places you can swim all year round without having a stitch on.


The Vera Playa Naturist zone was declared in 1979, and has remained that way ever since.

While elsewhere in Spain, a "no swimsuit day" is held across many beaches in mid-July, Vera lets you go without 365 days a year.

The 2km of beach lets tourists go completely naked, with a nudist bar also on-site although most establishments require clothes to be back on by 8pm.

There is even the Vera Playa Club – the first naturist hotel in Spain, with a swimming pool if you don't want to brave the beach without a swimsuit.

And you can't wear a swimsuit even if you want to – the website states: "Guests must be nude in the pool area at all hours."

However, it says it is optional elsewhere, but being naked in the restaurant is banned, as well as taking pictures or videos.

Some of the supermarkets and shops even welcome naturists in Vera along with other apartments and campsites and the streets within the area.

Make sure you head to the correct section of the beach though – it is split into the north and south section, with the south section for clothed bathers.

The beach is also a world record holder – in 2013, it was home to the largest nudist swim ever with 729 naked swimmers.
