Gay Nude Beaches in Italy – The Nomadic Boys

gay nude beaches in Italy

Italy is a hotbed for some of the finest men in the world who just love to bare it all at one of the country’s many gorgeous beaches.

After checking out the best gay beaches in Europe, we wanted to discover more from the Italian perspective, so we teamed up with the guys at GayFriendlyItaly.com to showcase the 5 best gay nude beaches in Italy.

One thing to note with regards to public nudity in Italy is that although it is officially illegal, in 2006 nude tanning was legalised in designated areas so you should be fine in the places we list below.

Lecciona beach in Tuscany
Lecciona beach is the most popular gay beach in Italy. It is part of the natural park of Migliarino, San Rossore and Massaciuccoli.

The beach is stunning. We love it because not only is it a sandy beach (most tend to be pebbly or rocky), but it is surrounded by a gorgeous pine forest. This also makes it quite private, hence why it’s a popular spot for nudists.

Bear in mind there are no establishments here. To reach it you have to walk at least 10-15 minutes through the pinewood and sand dunes, so bring all your food, water etc with you.

Corfu’s Naked Beaches

Corfu - Sergio Scardia

Corfu is a beautiful green island in the Mediterranean, as you already know if you are avid readers of my blog. The island itself is pretty big, almost 600 Km², which make Corfu the 7th biggest island of the whole Greece. The total coast surface is 217 km, so you can imagine there is plenty of great beaches all around the island to choose from: Corfu comprises over 120 beaches!

I didn’t have time to explore them all, although I wish I had. But, as per my custom, I asked the locals which beaches were unmissable: here you can find my very own list of the 3 nudist beaches not to miss if you happen to visit Corfu.

Nudist Beaches of Corfu – Issos Beach

Issos is an idyllic beach on the southwest coast of Corfu; that part of the island is dominated by golden sandy beaches and shallow turquoise waters. And of course Issos has these features plus something more: it is by far one of the best nudist beaches of the entire island!

Ten Great Nude Beaches

Author: , May 29th, 2012

Nude BeachesThere are nude beaches in America? That’s a question I get asked all the time, and the answer I always reply with is: there’s more than you think actually. Sure they’re often hidden and hard to reach (thanks in part to the shame-based culture we live in), but the freedom to shimmy out of your Speedo on a hot summer day and splash around in the water au naturel makes the occasionally off-the-beaten-path trek well worth it. Thanks to the West Coast’s combination of endless, tucked-away shorelines and progressive politics, there’s an abundance of places to toss out your worries, workload, and swimsuit and indulge in endless summer. Just don’t forget the SPF50, the Pacific sun can spank your booty hard (trust me).

#10 Laguna Creek Beach, Santa Cruz, CA: When people fantasize about the Northern California coastline, it’s the scenery at Laguna Creek they’re picturing. The cliffs are jagged and expansive, the perfectly blue waters slam the shoreline resulting in a spectacular spray of ocean water, and you half expect a hawk to swoop down in front of you and pluck lunch straight out of the sea. Though there isn’t a ton of nudity. On my last visit (a balmy weekend no less), I spotted just one naked guy among maybe a dozen scattered sunbathers. Directions: Follow Hwy. 1 9.8 miles north of where it intersects with Hwy. 17. Park on the east side of the road and walk the trail on the west side of the highway until you hit the beach.

#9 San Gregorio State Beach, Half Moon Bay, CA: I walked and walked and walked almost all two miles of this extensive nude beach, enjoying tide pools, seashells, and an endless horizon along the way. There were maybe a dozen guys hanging out in the buff (and most were hidden by the large piles of driftwood they’d fashioned into makeshift forts), so this isn’t a social beach. If you’re looking to have a generous stretch of sand largely to yourself or take a naked stroll, you’ve found your nirvana. Directions: Drive north just past the intersection of Hwy. 1 and SR 84 (where you’ll likely see a bunch of cars) and turn left at the dirt road. Follow it past a pasture of grazing cows until you come to a makeshift parking lot. San Gregorio is privately owned, and a guy in a pickup will ask you for a couple bucks to use the beach. Follow the trail at the parking lot down to the beach.
