Dear passengers, we are landing at… the naturist beach! Playa Guasimeta, Lanzarote, Canary Islands

It seems naturists are really welcome on Canary Islands. Right next to the airport of Arrecife there is a quite long nudist beach

with very soft dark sand, Playa Guasimeta. Airplanes take off just along the beach, but this gives it charm of its own.

So, if you can’t wait to stretch out and get naked after the flight, just go there and relax on the sand. It’s also a short bike ride from the city.

Naturist village Charco del Palo

An entire naturist colony, the village of Charco del Palo, is a special place for naturists on Lanzarote – you can stay clothes-free even outside of the ocean shore area and don’t need to think of clothes even when you walk to the beach from your house down the streets of the village. naturist 0004 Charco del Palo, Lanzarote, Canary Islands, Spain

Or even if you go to a restaurant? Unfortunately they had a siesta break when we were there, so we could only check the Menü (it was in German, of all languages). naturist 0000 Charco del Palo, Lanzarote, Canary Islands, Spain

It is also a great place for snorkeling and diving, as there are a lot of different fishes and algae on the rocks. About a hundred meters off the shore, there are submerged rocks that make a nice point to swim to. On the way there, I saw some rays gliding by the bottom.

And there is an arch-like rock formation that you can walk on (and swim under).

Despite the rocks, the entrance to the water is not difficult thanks to the hand rails. naturist 0001 Charco del Palo, Lanzarote, Canary Islands, Spain

Small children can play safely in the waters of 2 natural tidal pools, as they are shallow and protected from waves.

If you walk around on the rocky shore,

you’ll see a lot of shrubs and succulent plants, many of which are you unique to Canary Islands.

We were in time for their blossom (later March) of succulents,

so as this parasitic plant called desert broomrape, which doesn’t have its own leaves (well, even some plants here prefer to stay naked!)
