Naturistbnb is a new website this year catering for naturists in the same way that has been so successful for Airbnb, which we use frequently. Now we don’t have to search for naturist-friendly rents – at least not in the places that offer such accommodation.
It’s a bit limited right now but will suit those who are looking for somewhere to spend their liesure time. Hopefully, it will grow like Topsy – or like Airbnb, in fact!
According to the Bangkok Post in this article, Thailand’s Naked Jungle Run has been cancelled, citing “mixed reaction in social media”, the organiser said. While Thailand has made encouraging strides forward for naturism in SE Asia, there is clearly still a long way to go. Keep trying!

Why is this guest house on my bucket list? Because I want to visit Portugal, because I like the look of this place, because we’re naturists and not least because I enjoy Jane’s monthly articles in H&E naturist mag. Save us a place.

Jean-Pierre, a 68 year-old French naturist, plays the accordion on the beach at the Centre Helio-Marin (Center for Sun and Sea) naturist campsite on the Atlantic coast in Montalivet, southwestern France, August 24, 2013. The centre, created in July 1950, was the first vacation nudist camp to open in Europe. France is host to some 83 naturist sites where 60% of the holiday makers are foreigners. During the peak summer holiday period, 14,000 people spend their vacation at this nudist campsite on the Atlantic Ocean. Picture taken August 24, 2013.

I made it back safe and sound after a business assignment in darkest(?) Africa. Whoever coined that hadn’t been to the bright sunny spot that I enjoyed. Hot, sunny, humid, remote, bird-rich (most of the non-game-park animals were devoured long ago), insect-rich (pesky mosquitoes), colourful; a fantastic experience as ever with fascinating friendly people.
I’ve been living and working on and off in Africa for over 40 years. I never get bored with it. Roll on the next visit.
Interesting though that indigenous tribes that once wore as little as the climate allowed now modestly cover themselves and rarely show their natural beauty. Bloody missionaries! Even 20 years ago, open roadside nudity in remote areas at washing holes in West Africa was common. I recall beaches where sunning and swimming nude by all nationalities was commonplace. No longer! African society has moved on and now nakedness has been confined to the regressive repressive morality of many restrictive cultures around the world. What a tragedy. The perfect place (mozzies excepted) and little opportunity for us nudists (except at South Africa’s fine naturist resorts).
But…I do know one or two remote spots on this vast continent! Seek and ye shall find…
It’s good to be back to my corner of Southern France though. Beaches, hiking, sunshine and no mozzies.
Il n’aura pas échappé aux naturistes qu’un restaurant nudiste va ouvrir en plein Londres. Chacun devra donc se déshabiller entièrement avant d’aller manger. Se mettre à l’aise. Le rêve donc. Les restaurants naturistes sont en effet rares si l’on excepte les divers bars des centres et villages naturistes et leurs restaurant (où la nudité ne […]
Surveying the natural landscape around the country one can only marvel at how beautiful mother nature can be and just how destructive man is in his pursuit of progress. We’ve visited many glorious naturist beaches in our five years of travel but we’ve yet to find a beach to rival the wonderful Studland beach in […]
Even though I live within easy driving distance, I haven’t visited Cap d’Agde naturist resort for many years, so I’m no authority. When I last visited it was a pure idyllic naturist village – a perfect place in my mind for our family to enjoy our naturism.
It seems from many views in recent years that this beacon of progressive nudist life has progressed into a naturist-by-day, swinger-by-night venue. I’m disappointed with this development and would love the centre to revert to its earlier purist naturist theme, but I suspect I would be shouted down by those that enjoy both sides of this emotive naturist/swinger issue and are as delighted with Cap d’Agde centre as it is. I’m torn by my live-and-live attitude and my clean-and-pure naturist dream.
I’m not going to solve this, so I present this article by Matthias McGregor of news.com.au. He briefly explains the history of the resort and the current conundrum.
