5 of the Best Naturist Beaches in Italy

As most people are well aware, Italy is surrounding by the blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea. As such, people are quite well aware of the amazing beaches that comprise the Italian coast. However, they may not be completely aware of the fact that there are several naturist beaches on the Italian coast. Not all of the naturist beaches are of the same value and some get better marks that others. So, which are the best naturist beaches in Italy? Here is a look at the top 5:

Capocota Beach: This beach rests on the southern coast of Rome and is frequently visiting by naturists from all over the world. This is hardly a new beach destination as it has long since been popular. In fact, it has been around for many decades and originally gained international prominence in the 1970s. However, it has only been an exclusively nude beach since 2000. Despite being a naturist beach for only a decade, it is among the most popular in the region drawing in scores of tourists thanks to its brilliant ambiance. Why not become one of them yourself?

Guvano Beach: Some may be a little put off by the notion you have to trek through a trail in order to arrive at this particular beach. Others will appreciate the fact that the beach is quiet and secluded. For those that wish privacy in their naturist beach experience, the privacy will be welcome. Also quite welcome will be scenic beauty delivered by the cliffs. In all sincerity, this is one of the most beautiful nudge beaches in Italy which certainly contributes to its popularity.

Bassona Beach, Emilia-Romagna: This is one of the largest and longest strips of beach in the country that offers a venue for those that love nude beaches. While the best naturist beaches in Italy should not be solely defined by square kilometers of beach, the fact remains the more space you will allow you to feel less crowded. And who would want to feel crowded on any beach, nudist or not? Consider this one of the most popular naturalist destinations to visit when traveling to Italy.

Portonovo, Le Marche: This particular nude beach deserves a mention because it maintains a certain uniqueness to it due to its location. It is located in a very secluded area of the city and rests in the shadow of 19th Century brick tower. This brick tower provides not only a unique backdrop. This beach offers a brilliant scenic environment that is difficult to duplicate elsewhere. So, the popularity of the beach should not come as a surprise

Costa Dei Barbari: Not only is this one of the most popular nude beaches, it is among the best naturist beaches in Italy. One reason for this is the beach is known for its sportive and active pursuits. Certainly, this beach will never be called dull!

Those that wish to explore the many nude beaches in Italy will certainly never be bored. There are many great beaches to explore and the five listed here can be the first to explore.
