A Nudist New Year Greeting.

A Christmas Message from Liz


So, it’s that time of year again.

Much as I love it, I don’t think the Christmas period is particularly “nudist friendly” .I’m afraid the two things just don’t go together. It’s probably because I live in the UK and have to endure The Great British Weather.

Now I know that many of you live in warmer climes, or in the Southern Hemisphere where Christmas occurs in your summertime and you can celebrate the holiday naked in the sunshine.

But here, in the UK, Christmas happens slap bang in the middle of the winter and in the UK it’s cold enough to freeze the brass knobs off a bedstead.

I’m a nudist, not a masochist, and the lower the temperature the more I become resolutely (and snugly) textile.

Look at me today, for instance.

I’m writing this in a warm house with the heating full on and a log fire roaring half way up the chimney, but outside it’s minus three degrees and it LOOKS so cold that I’m togged up like Eskimo Nell.

Call me soft if you want, but just the thought of sitting here naked chills me rigid.

But it’s not just the weather.

It’s the whole Christmas atmosphere.

I love it, but it just doesn’t go with being nudist.

I mean, just consider. The whole thing’s fraught with difficulty.

Log fires (sparks). Holly (prickly). Mistletoe (poisonous). Ivy (itchy)

Open the door naked to a bunch of carol singers and you’ll get locked up until Easter.

Try decorating a Christmas tree in the buff and you’ll be scrubbing pine resin out of your skin for a month.

And what in Heaven’s name DO you buy a nudist for Christmas?

Now don’t get me wrong. I enjoy a nudist Christmas party in a sauna or someone’s hot tub as much as anyone.

But at this time of the year nothing beats meeting good friends – fully dressed – in a splendid old coaching inn with a log fire crackling merrily in the hearth and a jolly landlord dispensing mulled wine and mince pies.

It just seems so …well… appropriate.

Anyway, this is my last postng before Christmas, so thanks for reading the go-nudist blog and, whether it’s nudist or not, please have a very Merry Christmas.

Free nudist beach guide. St Germain sur Ay, Normandy, France


Another of the world’s notable nudist beaches.

St Germain sur Ay nudist beach, Manche, Normandy NW France

Google map here

Description:

St-Germain-sur-Ay offers an incredible fine white gently shelving sandy beach, with warm waters making it perfect for nudist families.

St Germain is on the west coast of the Cotentin Peninsula. The “mother-of-pearl coast”, as it is called, is characterised by vast, empty sandy beaches, rolling dunes, wild, windblown headlands and huge skies. Inland, its salt marshes have protected it from over development.

St Germain is directly opposite the island of Jersey, which protects it from the wildest Atlantic weather and whose climate it shares.

Directions:

  • Take the D650 south from Cherbourg for approx 50 km
  • Just west of St Germain sur Ay, turn left onto the D306 towards the village of St Germain sur Ay Plage. (approx 2.5 kms)
  • At the village turn left along La Rue de Bretagne,
  • The beach is at the end of the road. There is a designated car park.

Nearest rail / air links
Railway: Portbail (7.51mi, 12.08km)
Airport: Aéroport de Cherbourg Maupertus (29.45mi, 47.39km)

Facilities:

None on the nudist beach itself, but the village contains the usual amenities.

Designation:

Official nudist beach

Authorized by local bylaw of 1999.01.05 and managed by the Club “Saint Germain Naturisme”

Who goes there:

  • Mostly families attracted by the safe beach, but the majority don’t go nudist.
  • Attracts lots of visitors in good weather.
  • Just recently, some reports of gawkers.

Other nearby attractions:

  • The historic city of Cherbourg
  • Mont Saint Michel - a spectacular World Heritage site and the second largest attraction in France after the Eiffel Tower.
  • · Normandy Landings beaches:
  • · The city of Bayeaux and The Bayeaux Tapestry:
  • Ferries to Jersey run from both nearby Portbail and Carteret in season
  • Local Market at St Germain sur Ay : Thursday and Sunday morning in season.
  • The annual Holy Cross Fair at Lessay On the second weekend in September every year the population of 2,000 is swollen to over 400,000 by visitors to the annual Holy Cross Fair. The Champ de Foire at Lessay, for those three days, becomes the biggest shop in Europe with over 1500 stalls on the 32 acre site.

More information:

Dogs are allowed on the nudist beach.

Suitable for the infirm or disabled.

There is good shopping in St-Germain-sur-Ay,

GoNudist says…

A peach of a beach! Its fine white gently-shelving sandy beach, warm waters , quiet location, good choice of accommodation and wealth of nearby places of historic interest make St Germain a perfect place for a family nudist beach holiday.

Although popular with french families it is surprisingly little known out side of France, especially given its proximity to the UK. Go there now, before it gets “discovered!”

Nudist Beach Guide. College Cove, California USA


Another of the world’s notable nudist beaches.

College Cove. Humboldt County. California, USA

Google Map here.

Description:

There are actually two beaches at College Cove, usually designated as north and south. The northern beach is easier to reach, and therefore tends to get busier.
The beach is a crescent shaped cove with about a quarter mile of sand and tons of driftwood. The water can be very cold, and this stretch of the coast is subject to fog.

Directions:

· Take US 101 North out of Eureka.
· Take the turnoff leading to Trinidad. You will come to an intersection that forks either to Trinidad or Stage Coach Road
· Take the Stage Coach Road fork. Look for and park in a dirt lot less than mile down on the left.
· The north trail goes to College Cove North while the south trail leads to College Cove South.

Facilities:

None.

Designation:

Not clear. Is widely known as a popular and frequently used nudist venue, but has a history of some law enforcement. Use with caution.

Who goes there:

· On a good day, about 50 / 100 visitors over both beaches. Both beaches are popular with young singles, although most of them are textile. There is a higher percentage of nudists on the south beach, but even there they are in the minority.
· Some gawkers.

Other attractions:

None

More information:

At low tide it is possible to walk between the two beaches.

Nudist Resort Report – Cap d’Agde, France


When “The Cap” Fits. My love / hate relationship with the “nudist city” of Cap d’Agde

My partner and I have just returned from Cap d’Agde, the famous nudist resort in the glittering South of France. Not so much a nudist resort as a nudist city it is one of the largest of it’s type in the world, and during the day the nudist facilities are superb. It is a clean, friendly, innocent and happy place, which for once lives up to expectations. I could write pages about our stay in Cap d’Agde nudist resort and still not tell the whole story. But, space and time are limited, and you wouldn’t believe half of it anyway.

So I’ll just say that the journey was murderous, the weather was great, the accommodation was good, the facilities were brilliant, the beach was clean, the nudist resort was amazing and the entertainment – both official and unofficial – was, umm… entertaining. Although there were nearly 40000 people on the nudist resort, there was none of the loutish behaviour that spoils so many other resorts, and even at night-time when the “demi -monde” emerged for their nightly revels, the atmosphere was always relaxed. good-natured and friendly.

It is a good place for children, but after dark you may want to avoid some of the more outrageous venues, or you might have some embarrassing explanations to make! You see, when night falls, the place loses its innocence. Wholesome nudity is replaced by outrageous exhibitionism, the bars and cafés feature near explicit sex-shows, virtually anything goes, in public, and the site becomes a sort of Sodom on Viagra.

In short, Cap d’Agde after dark is just the sort of nudist resort that we as genuine nudists should disapprove of and never go near again.

And that, my friends, is a problem.

Because I loved it!

And will we be going back? You bet!

STOP PRESS…! Experience the incredible Cap d’Agde yourself 14-29 July 2009. For more details see my post here!

Nudist Resort Report. Superclubs, Caribbean


 Prude or Nude? That’s the choice at the “SuperClubs” nudist resorts in Jamaica

By Steve at Caribbean Dreams

At the Grand Lido’s or Hedonism Nudist Resorts you can choose to stay on the prude side and walk a few meters to the nudist pool and beach or stay on the nudist side and be naked from the minute you leave your room to the minute you go back to bed. That is of course you if you want to miss out on the great entertainment and choice of restaurants to be found in the general areas.

All four resorts have excellent nudist facilities with pools that have bars and beach grills where you don’t even have to leave the pool to eat or drink. The most famous of these resorts is Hedonism II. Situated on the tip of legendary Negril Beach. Life at Hedo II centres around two private stretches of beach: one nudist, one prude, both fantastic.

Its not really fair to call the people on the prude beach prude, its just they have not yet experienced the delights of the nudist beach, most soon decide they are missing out and soon walk the few steps to freedom.

You can be as free as you want to be, depending on your mood. For a quiet, private moment, slip off to a shaded hammock with a good book or shed your inhibitions and join in the party on the nudist beach.

There’s no such thing as a typical day at the Hedo resorts, it’s all down to who’s visiting at the time. There are so many interesting people to talk to you never get bored. If you like to be in the thick of it why not join in the many beach games where entrants are rewarded with Hedo Dollars. These you can trade and at the end of the week you will so many you cannot possibly carry home all rum, tee shirts and coffee you have acquired.

For the active there is always plenty of sports, with very well equipped gyms, tennis, water-sports including Hobie cats, windsurfing and snorkelling. Diving is also available with pool dives and for the more experienced reef dives.

A very popular excursion is the nudist cruise to the famous “Ricks café” area at the far end of the 7-mile long Negril Beach. This takes place on a very large catamaran, stopping off along the way for snorkelling on the reef. At the destination the very brave or foolish swim ashore to the foot of cliffs and climb a ladder inside a cave to the top of the cliff. At this point you can either dive or leap off into the blue Caribbean or make a very discreet exit back down the ladder and hope no-one notices. Of course no nudist cruise is complete without lashings of Rum Punch and a singsong all the way back.

Across the road but on another bay is the Grand Lido Negril, this is billed as one of most luxurious nudist resorts ever created. When you arrive at Montego Bay there is a special SuperClubs lounge area and for some room categories the option of using the Lidosine, a luxury transfer instead of a mini bus or taxi. Grand Lido Negril has a Nude and Prude side with its own separate nudist area with private beach, pool and hot tub where you can stay nude all day. If you want breakfast in bed No Problem! with 24 hour room service. You can eat at the beach grill where they cook the most amazing lamb chops and Jerk chicken complimented by a great cocktail, beer or wine.

News from the resort is the luxury yacht M/Z Zein, formerly Princes Grace’s honeymoon yacht, has been retired from service after years of romantic sunset cruises. A large catamaran has replaced this for the sunset cruises. Another new feature is the torch lit beachside couples massage complete with champagne.

Over on the north coast you find two more resorts Hedonism III and the Grand Lido Braco. Hedo III is the newest of the Hedo resorts and tends to get more couples usually between the ages of 35 to 50 year old. Again the resort has non stop entertainment for the lively or quiet spots if you want to relax. Like Hedo II they have a full events list where groups meet year after year to meet old friends.

I have been told the Hedonism Resorts have the highest number of repeat clients of anywhere in the world so it just goes to show the popularity of the places. Some people are afraid of the image of the resorts but I have seen much worse behaviour at some our so called nudist resorts and beaches. Hedo is for fun and not taking life too seriously. From the world’s largest nude weddings to Playboy photo shoots there is enough to please everyone at Hedo. Singles are made to feel very welcome and are not left out of the fun and games. The entertainment staff soon see to it that you never sit alone or dine alone.

Hedo III is not as big as Hedo II but has newer rooms and facilities. The nudist beach is surrounded by board walks for sunbathing in peace away from the lively pool and Jacuzzi area. Around this area Pool volleyball, body shots and naked twister are all great fun to participate in. Hedo III has a great position on a low cliff where the sounds of the waves are very relaxing. They have excellent entertainment on stage in the restaurant area or outside for a Saturday night extravaganza with circus acts and the brilliant entertainment staff all performing like true professionals.

A short drive away is what I feel is the best of all the resorts: Grand Lido Braco. Braco is designed on a town, namely Falmouth and yes it is in the area of Trelwany (Cornwall) just like back home. Grand Lido Braco, where they created Jamaica’s first and only Super-Inclusive village, complete with gingerbread architecture and an authentic Town Square. Here, anything’s possible and everything’s included. 24-hour room service. Sumptuous cuisine. Premium bar drinks. Championship golf and tennis. Sailing, snorkeling & scuba. Scintillating nightlife. Perfumed gardens. Separate au naturel facilities. And, of course, one of the finest beaches on Jamaica’s North Coast.

The nudist side of the resort boasts possibly the largest swimming pool in Jamaica, it also has extensive grounds with hidden hammocks, spas and very much privacy. Just sit quietly and watch the humming birds, lizards and other wildlife. At night the jungle chorus with crickets and tree frogs is amazing. Of course you can just sit by the beach bar & grill, play a few games and get your all over tan without moving a muscle.

These four resorts mentioned are not nudist family friendly. They are for adults only so no screaming children to disturb the peace. If you want to go to Jamaica with your children and still want somewhere to get your all over tan, think about the Starfish Trelawny where they cater for the nudist family and have a separate nudist beach. This resort is on the north coast again in Trelwany close to Falmouth. Being a SuperClub resort it is all-inclusive and offers great value.

What are your impressions of this nudist resort? Is it nudist family friendly? Why not leave your comments?
