This beach is on the road between Schinos and Alkiona (Directions from Schinos). It's accessed by a dirt road. You leave your car on the side of the road (there's a small parking space) and start descending to the beach. Note that this is not your beach if you are not physically fit! The path to the beach is long and quite steep. There's probably no alternative road that would bring you closer to the beach (and 4x4 car would not help).
Don't forget to bring food and water with you as it is (obviously) not organized. Highly recommended beach with crystal clear water, but only for those few who can manage the descent/ascent.

July 2019: We visited on a Saturday morning and as we approached the sea we found many campers under the trees (families and couples). The nudist part is the one on the right and we found it by asking a young woman. Initially, the beach was empty, but later as people started coming down from their tents it was 100% textile-free with some being nude even in the forest above the beach. The two beaches had a mixed crowd (family, couples, singles m/f).

August 2020: Me and my wife spent there one night and whole Saturday morning, leaving around noon time. We were the only naked people on the beach, an exception being two men who came (independently), undressed, had a swim, dressed and disappeared. A few textiles as well came and occupied the right side of the beach as we were on the left side (on the right side there were some textile youth in the evening, but they didn't come down from their tents in the morning).

The shore behind the rock on the left side was completely textile (several tents in a few bays) with about two women being topless. The "nudist" part is not very good for camping directly on the beach, but there are nice places in the trees above the beach. Overall nice place, but we were disappointed by the textiles. The path down to the beach is about 200m long and not really difficult for anyone in average physical condition.

Behind the Pappas Hotel there are two small secluded beaches reported to be ideal for nudism. All morning was only me and my wife making sunbathing and sex. It takes a little attention to the sea because it has rocks and sea-urchins.

Visited in July 2019. The beach is accessed by a dirt road. It is 100% nudist but you have to be very careful of [sea-]urchins.


Report from the Forum by GregN8R:-
For July 2023, the southern section of the beach nearest the canal is Loutraki's nudist beach. This section of the beach is in front of a large pile of material excavated during the construction of the canal. The area inland of the beach is some sort of military facility. The nude section seems to be well tolerated and is widely known. The beach is beyond the range of the town's trash cleanup crews, but it does offer an opportunity for nude swimming and sunbathing. It is easy to get in the water, and there are no urchins that I have seen. Usage is 100% nudist. Most of the users during mid-day are single men, but couples do appear in the late afternoon.

[One might quibble as to whether the above beaches are actually in the Peleponnese, but being close to the Corinth canal they have been left here for ease of reference]


here on Google Maps

This is a lovely and pretty secluded beach, located between Kato Rodini and Poco-Poco beach bar in Achaia. To reach the beach take the old national road connecting Aegion to Patras towards Patras. Almost a kilometre after Poco-Poco intersection, right before Kato Rodini, there is an old orange bus stop kiosk on the right side of the road. At the bus stop take a sharp right and drive downhill. As soon as you reach the lower level (construction of new train tracks), park your car and look for the little path that leads down to the beach. This is a great adults-only beach for nudism and topless sunbathing. Mostly couples and groups and much fewer singles frequent the beach. Lovely, clear waters. Most importantly very safe especially for ladies tanning alone topless or in the nude. Very friendly atmosphere, seems that many people know each other.

Directions above are clear. The old orange bus stop kiosk is still there but massive works make the access to the beach absolutely impossible (late May 2019). You can see the pebble beach but the path leading down doesn't exist. Captain should remove this beach from the catalogue [since the beach still exists, I'll leave it for the present to see what may develop - but warning noted].


Rio / Rion

Perhaps this is it on Google Maps

Rio is 7 Km N from Patras. The beach is after the Porto Rio Hotel. You're passing Porto Rio's beach (on foot and direction to Patras) and after the bamboo bushes there is the beach that you can swim nude.
[Can anyone spot the bushes? Perhaps these directions pre-date the bridge… See the map for a possibility worth investigation.]
Because we went to Patras (late June 2020), we reached this beach. Not easy way, you must pass the hotel Porto Rio. The beach was completely textile, few bathers there, nothing special. We left the beach. Cpt maybe should remove this beach from the catalog
Update October 2023: The location indicated on the map above is correct. Easy to reach from the Portio Rio Hotel. Rather quiet beach on a Sunday. 3 or 4 other men swimming and sunbathing nude. Occasionally textiles pass by but they weren't gawking or bothering anyone. It seems that there is some cruising going on in the bushes. I decided to leave after I got approached with indecent proposals by a male in his 60's. :(

Kalogria (Madona)

See on Google Maps

As you arrive at Kalogria facing the sea, on your right hand there is a small hill. You pass the hill and there is a wonderful sandy beach where you can swim nude. It's name is Madona, probably because of a graffito on the wall of the ruins that kind of mark the beginning of the path that leads to the beach. Though the path is not a difficult one, it is slippery and one should be careful. It is a very nice beach which is mostly occupied by gay males. Sometimes there are clothed couples or families, and rarely mixed nudist couples. The beach is quiet and idyllic, away from the noisy music at the main beach, and the sea bed is fine sand with a very gentle slope.
A visit in June 2009 found the path appropriate only for those very fit.

Kalogria (S part)

See on Google Maps

The southern part of Kalogria beach offers the most opportunities to enjoy nature. The naturist section begins a few hundred metres' walk away from the parking space ("A" on the map above). The beach is very long and has space for everyone. Even during weekends you can be completely alone, provided that you are willing to walk a bit longer. There are no facilities at the beach, so provide for yourself. On the back of the beach there are sand dunes and a wonderful pine-tree forest which you can explore nude. The sand is fine and the water is clean, though there is some litter washed up by the sea from time to time. If it wasn't for this, it'd be a five star naturist beach.

Summer 2012, less people than in previous years, mostly men, occasional couples and single women and families. The dunes behind the beach are wonderful but are mostly used as a "cruising" area. The occasional old "gawker" appears on a regular basis, but doesn't bother you if you ignore him.



See on Google Maps

July 2019: This is a very large beach with easy access through one of the many parallel roads to the south of the one leading to Kantina Kounoupelaki. This is a sandy beach that stretches for 2-3 km and you can easily find a spot to be alone. The sea has shallow clear water. Be careful not to disturb turtle hatching nests in the area.
July 2020: Nice, huge sandy beach. Easy access as described, not 4X4 vehicle needed. But nude swim is impossible due to numerous workers from nearest agricultural villages. These men workers seem to be from Bangladesh or Pakistan and were there at the beach in teams of 5-10 dressed persons. So avoid

Kaiafas - Zacharo

See on Google Maps

Kaiafas4.jpg Kaiafas5.jpg

There is a beach at the Thermae of Kaiafa on the west side of Peloponnisos, 5 minutes from Zaxaro. It is an enormous sandy beach just in front of the railway station of Kaiafa. There is a small forest on the beach where free camping is practised. The beach is so long that it can never be crowded. Anyone who wants to practise nudism will surely find a place to do so, especially on the left side as you face the sea. The day my contributor was on the beach (August 2002) there were 6 people, all nude, at a distance of about 100 metres.

August 2017: Typically not a nudist beach but so long that it can never be crowded. The left side of the beach, as you face the sea, is more promising for nudism. During the day of my visit, 2-3 people were naked there about 300m far from the Kaiafa railway station.


August 2019: You can access this nudist beach either by parking near the railway station to the north and then walk south or by parking near tavern Miltos to the south and walk north on the beach. We visited the southern part, parked 10m from the beach and walked a bit to the north. Throughout the day, not a single person came by or near our spot. Nudists were scattered at least 100m apart from each other. Also noticed a few camping tents under the trees behind the beach.

August 2020: Visited the beach twice and parked on the beach following the path to Tavern Miltos. If you walk to the right (north) the beach is 100% nudist and visitors are far from each other.
Again, here you have to be very careful not to step on turtle nests marked by bamboo sticks or tree branches.

The beach is easily accessible, clean - sandy bottom. Good news ends here. When we arrived there (June 2021) I noticed a peeping tom staring just at the back of the beach. He was there wearing mirror sunglasses, so I noticed the sun at his sunglasses! He is recording naked bodies with his phone, as we clearly saw. My wife told me that she has no problem if he "use" these videos for his own pleasure but if he will upload them on a site of voyeurism, nobody can stop him. We warned another naked couple and we left. A pity.

We visited in July 2022 The beach is still nudist but there are strange people walking and parking near the beach. You need to be careful.

Kalo Nero

See on Google Maps

On the west coast of the Peloponnese, some kilometres north of Kyparissia, there is the village called Kalo Nero (= beautiful water), with an immense and large sandy beach on the south and the north. From about 2 km on the north of the last houses the beach is nearly deserted for distance of more than 5 km. Even on Sundays in August there were not more than 20 persons on this immense beach, that is ideal for nude bathing and walking. No sun loungers, parasols, tavernas or anything like that. My contributors enjoyed it a lot and will come back!

The situation in end-July 2011 was practically the same. Very few people, even on Sundays. One was able to walk around naked on the beach or at the small pine forest, that backs the beach, for 3-4 Km.

One other point about Kalo Nero Beach is that it has been noted by the Sea Turtle Protection Society of Greece as a nesting site. This requires of those who visit the beach a considerable degree of responsibility. In particular, any nests should not be disturbed, any turtles should not be "assisted" to the sea (it is essential to their development that they find their own way) and the beach should not be visited at night.
Messinian Turtle beaches
Please note that all the beaches in Messinia are used as nesting beaches by the Loggerhead Turtles. They nest between May and June and hatch later in the summer. If you see a dip in the soft sand please avoid it. The locals will mark the nests by putting bamboo canes around the dip so that you can see where it is and avoid sitting or digging there. You will sometimes see the tracks of the mum where she walked up the beach, laid her eggs and then walked down the beach again to the sea. Later in the summer you will sometimes see several tiny tracks left by the hatchlings as they make their way to the water.


Romanos (Costa Navarino)

See on Google Maps

My correspondent, who visited in June/July 1998, says Romanou is a village north of Pilos on the Peloponnese. The beach is easy to find. Just drive into the village, follow the sign to the beach. Near the sea there is on your left hand a parking place, keep on riding. Follow the sand road as far as you can. At the end of the road you find a beautiful long beach. The beach is visited mainly by Greek men. There is some cruising of gays in the dunes behind the beach.

Another Barefooter, visiting in late April 2010, reports that, perhaps because of the last sentence, an environmental catastrophe has been perpetrated on this beach. From end to end the vegetation on the dunes has been flailled and the whole mixture of sand and fibres regraded by excavator, so that until it (re)consolidates, it is even difficult to walk on it (especially barefoot!). Only one incongruously small patch of bamboo has escaped out of several hectares so treated. A large development on the north side of the river must be blamed for this. So, don't go there until things have settled down a bit.
Instead head south from the little horseshoe rowing-boat harbour (you will have to leave your vehicle there) to the next bay, which is almost as large, with high dunes at the back and a modest formation of palm sunshades below the trees that you come to first. When I asked one of the men putting out the loungers about nudists, he said "Yes, nudists" and smiled… There are other delightful, smaller bays beyond, past Petrochori (a very minor hamlet), with offshore rocks to keep the swell down, but at the time of visiting there was no-one there…

Visited again this year and you can find many spots for nudism between KOA Beach Bar and Golden Sand Apartments.

Voidokoilia beach has an awe-inspiring symmetry behind the breached cliffs: courtesy

See on Google Maps

According to the Gialova tourist leaflet this beach was voted by the New York Times as one of the world's 10 best beaches. On two visits in April 2010 there was a very relaxed air with both textile and naked sunners - the former predominate. Definitely worth the difficulty in finding your route to get to it, but at least it can be seen from afar, as the gap in the range of coastal hills. It is backed by a big lagoon of murky water which is also a good landmark. Zero facilities unless you count the carpark near the north end. The aerial view shows what seems to be a secret beach within the northern headland cliffs - see below for later assessments.

Unfortunately this bay has become very popular and in June, July and August can no longer be recommended. Out of season it may still be worthwhile.
There is more opportunity at the southern end of the beach, away from the car park. This can be accessed by driving around the northern end of Navarino Bay as far as the beach road goes. Park at the car park at the end and follow a good flat path that skirts the lagoon, a protected nature area with the only colony of chameleons in Europe (you never see them though, because they’re good at what they do…). The walk is about 20 minutes, then you cross dunes and will see Voidokoilia ahead of you.
Sept 2020: Even on a dull day nudity is not possible. With access from both ends, people wander along from both directions.
July 2022: Although we visited this beach many times, there was never an opportunity for nudism. Go to Glossa nearby or Navarino.

Secret Beach (Glossa)

little%20gem%20doc.JPG Little Gem or Glossa beach

However, the best naturist beach to use here is the one spotted on the map by another contributor - we call it ‘Little Gem’ because it really is a little gem - an amazing beach geologically too. You park at the main car park at the north end of Voidokilia, on your way to the beach you will see a sign and a path on your right to an ancient Tholos Tomb. Take this path up to the headland. The path splits going left to the tomb and right towards ‘Little Gem’ beach. Follow the path as it drops down to the beach, there are a few steps at the bottom to help with the climb (about 10 minutes from the car park). The beach is amazing geologically, sandy with rocky surrounds and just a small entrance to the sea (it looks narrow enough to jump across). Definitely a nudist beach, very lovely.

Recent reports

July This small beach is always nudist with some textiles, but no problem.

Divari & Bouka

aka Golden Beach. Close south of Voidokoilia (to which there is a well-trodden path round the shore of the lagoon), these form the entire north shore of the Bay of Navarinon, with access from a tarmac, later dirt, road mostly within 50 metres of the shore behind small trees and evergreen bushes. There are many delineated parking nooks and a bigger carpark where there is a seasonal kantina. With more than 2 km of beach, there should be little difficulty in finding a spot for bathing au naturel but it probably gets extremely popular at all the usual times. The beaches are sand and the water shallow, with a small wreck to snorkel about. (April 2010)


UPDATE JULY 2017 (Nudists from everywhere please join this beach)

Divari beach is the greatest place to be - the best nude beach of the area, some people enjoy nude but others when they see non-naturists they stop and then get dressed. This is wrong!!! 7km of beach need to have 1 spot with 100% nude people! So please just 100 metres before the bridge on your left hand stay nude, if one practises nude swim then all will follow. It's so simple.
Every time I go there and stay naked more people stay naked and it works!

The beach above is not nudist (July 2018). Some bathers were there - all wearing swimsuits. The beach after the bridge was also textile but not crowded, about 5-6 families were there. Some on the boats near the beach were naked. We met a nudist family who was there between textiles, the man and children were nude, woman topless with lovely boobs, but we felt uncomfortable to undress.
We went there in early July 2020. We decided to stay at the spot above, about 30-40 metres before the bridge. We were all alone. Later, some (dressed) bathers passed in front of us and left when they saw that we were completely naked. Very nice beach, go there!
August 2020: Searched the whole length, starting from Gialova beach to the end and nudity was out of the question. This beach was full of people, all textiles.
Sept 2020: Nudity possible with discretion just before the bridge but not really recommended.
With the amount of development at Navarino Waterfront, the beaches in this area can only become more crowded and naturism less of a possibility.

The beach became very popular even before the bridge (late July 2021). Too many bathers there, no chance to find a place suitable for a nude bath. Crt should delete the beach - one more paradise lost. [but note this is in high season]

October 2022: also in the low season the entire beach up to its very end at the west side was much crowded, without anyone being nude. This beach is definitely lost for nudism.

There are three lovely beaches in Finikounta. The one on the Methoni side is the longest. There are three points of entry to the beach. My contributors visited in August 2002. They used the turning off the main road furthest away from Finikounta. They entered the beach and walked back towards the town. Here there was a stretch where there was always a group of nudists well spaced out on a great stretch of golden sand. Textiles walked by but were not intrusive. It was a very relaxed spot.


Other Barefooters visited during 2007. They found the beach quite easily but came in from Finikounta end, found it a long walk along the beach, which was made of very gritty sand and was hot in the heatwave. On arriving at the area we found three couples and a few gazebos, and lots of young Greeks walking up and down. But the wind spoiled their visit - they had a good run on the hot sand to retrieve their brolly. They felt they had been to better beaches.

We have been using this beach, the biggest one mentioned by other contributors, regularly since 2009 as have our guests at our nearby naturist resort Fig Leaf Villas. It is a very beautiful beach backed by sand dunes with wild thyme and other herbs and the beautiful, scented, white sea lilies in September. The area in the centre of the beach is regularly used by naturists. The best place to park to access this area is to pass Camping Ammos on your left on the main road (coming from the village), then you’ll spot 2 or 3 very large derelict unfinished buildings. Turn left down a dirt track just before these buildings, stay to the left and park at the end. Walk down the track and across the dunes. This part of the beach has fine sand and plenty of it, shelving into the crystal clear water here. The views from the beach are very pretty with headlands and islands. The beach can sometimes be breezy but most of the time it is calm and lovely. Some textiles walk past but this part of the beach has been naturist for very many years and everyone is quite comfortable with each other. A really fine beach, and the village is extremely pretty and good for meals, supermarkets, etc. In July 2015 a correspondent followed these directions and ended up in a mess of fly tipping and soft sand with a very steep climb up onto the dunes. Taking the right fork on the track might be better but we didn't risk it. The car park just beyond the supermarket as given below is a much better bet. If you pass the sign for the Paradise Resort you've gone too far. Great beach with sand, easy access to the water and a nice atmosphere in spite of clothed people walking past.
Recent reports

The second beach bar still there laying more parasols. The beach became even more popular (late July, a weekday). Too many bathers there, more than 200. An older lonely naked couple was there about 100m from the end of parasols - maybe they are the last of the previous years naturist users of the beach - but we felt uncomfortable to undress in front of too many textiles. Bad news second paradise lost near messinian gulf.



See on Google Maps

This is the third, eastmost of the three main beaches at Finikounda, but much the smallest (has anyone been to the middle one, Loutsa?).
Amazing secluded beach surrounded by rocks. You can visit it by boat from Foinikounta or by car by leaving the main road and driving until you see some houses. If you have a 4x4 you can drive a bit further to an olive grove. Then you walk down to beach through a narrow path. You need to be careful at the last part which is on rocks.

Kantouni1.jpg Kantouni2.jpg

Visited in August 2019 and found 2 other nudist couples
Visited in July 2021 and nudity was possible, although no other nudies here. Many boats and SUP's take a break there and we didn't know how they would react. In fact Kantouni is the second bay when you hike there from Loutsa. A much smaller one is to be found at the middle of the way there - very quiet, much more secluded, but not as nice to lay here, as there are mostly rocks, but good for a break on this sweaty hike!

Kalamaki Beach

This small pebble beach between Finikounta and Koroni is mentioned in the Naked Wanderings blog. There used to be naturist accommodation nearby.
Sept 2020: We found the nude beach sign on a boulder had been over-sprayed with black paint. It would appear there is opposition to naturism in this area.
July 2021 Nudism isn't possible here anymore. Locals very explicitly told us to wear our bathing suits and to leave. So we did. Another beach lost!


Zaga (Zanga) beach

See on Google Maps

Nudism no longer possible at this beach, more than 200 bathers; families and tourists (July 2018). Some women topless like in most greek beaches. This confirms reports for the last 4 years.


Caves Beach

(Paralia Spilies)

See on Google Maps

This is a hidden gem, we call it Smuggler’s Cove but the locals call it ‘caves’ because of the sculpted rocks at the end of the beach. You park between the villages of Chrani and Kalamaki. On a U-bend near to Kalamaki you will see a large blue sign for Holiday Beach Camp site. Park under the olive trees there and walk up the road away from Kalamaki until you pass an ornate iron gate on your left on the corner depicting a turtle and children. Carry on for a few metres and you will see a gap on your left beside a bushy tree - the entrance to the path is after the tree. Follow the path through the field. You then have to climb down the rocks to get to the beach so wear good shoes and it is not suitable for the infirm, though the climb is quite easy for those of normal fitness. This delightful little beach with its beautiful view across to the Taygetos mountains, is a great little naturist beach and excellent for snorkelling. You will often find a few naturists here but it is a very quiet beach.

When we were driving past this area around noon on 5 July 2015 we saw a car parked under the olive trees and a couple walking on the road with beach gear. I hope they had more luck than we did finding this "hidden gem" a few days earlier. It was just too well hidden for us, I'm afraid. The figures on the gate with the turtle appear to be nude so it might be that the premises beyond the gate are or were a naturist resort. Entering through a gap in the fence we found the way down to the sea blocked by a gate. If there is a path through the bushes past the turtle gate then it has become completely overgrown.

We visited this site in September 2020. You can park the car in front of the iron gate with the turtle, then walk 40 metres towards Chrani, there you find the path going to the beach. The path is well maintained, the beach is very quiet as not many people will find the entrance and the lack of parking places.



See on Google Maps

This is the main beach of Kalamaki village, not suitable for naturism in high summer but, by walking along the beach a bit, away from the car park you will be able to go naked in lower season. There are some holiday homes around the beach but they are seldom used. The beach is large and sandy with rocks and cliffs at the back. Access to the beach is a narrow lane next to a very beautiful wall with a stone sun set in the corner of the wall where it abuts the lane. The car park is on the beach. You return to the main road via a different track as it is a one way system.

near Kalamata

See on Google Maps

A correspondent staying in Kalamata in early May 2010 found a definite shortage of nudist beaches in the district. However there is this short section of the coast within easy cycling distance to the southeast, which seems to have definite possibilities. It is just north of Mikri Mantinia, but the name for these coves was not found. From Kalamata take the main road south, then the right fork towards Kitries. In less than 3 km you come to the Akti Taygetos Hotel complex on both sides of the road. 100 metres beyond the end of their blue railings there is a pedestrian crossing at the foot of a road called Odos Antheon. You can park there and go down steps (on both sides of the main road) into a ravine which gives access to the beach. If you go left you soon come to a bay about 100m long, beyond which there is the prominent concrete buttress for a house above (they don't seem to look). Beyond this is the wide open public beach of the village to the south (yes, tavernas) where nudity is rare, although sometimes possible. All the beaches are pebbles, gravelly near sea level, and sand after a few feet out, so comfortable for barefoot swimming. Further information as to the local name for these beaches would be welcome.
September 2023: I confirm the instructions of the contributor above. However the access to the 100m long bay one the left (south) could be only through the sea as the sore banks were damaged by the sea. During my visit there was noone there. There is also the option to swim naked right at the end of the ravine, however, in this case someone may be visible from the elevated bar of the hotel Akti Taygetou located approx. 100 m on the right (north).

In the east side of the main beach of Kalamata, there is the Hotel Filoxenia with many umbrellas and sunbeds. Following the beach to the east side towards the Taygetos mountain the beach is quite deserted where nudism may be practised. At the end of the beach if you pass some rocks there are some small beaches where nudists exist.
Easy access but litter on the beach. Three single men and a couple there (July 2017). Definitely not worth the visit - go elsewhere.
The coordinates are 37.016569, 22.151248


Trahila / Kataphygi

See on Google Maps

Take the road from Agios Nikolaos and Agios Dimitrios towards Trahila in the region called Exo Mani. Less than a km out of Dimitrios, you'll find on your right cliffs with dressed and naked bathers (50 - 50). The water is very clean and nice but there is little space for taking sun.
A short steep path leads down just past the last house on the right going south; easy to park at roadside. Singles, famillies, textile and naked; no more than 20 people in early August 2011. No sand just rocks, good diving and tombstoning; part of beach is visible from road.

Trahila itself is an excellent place; visitors are so rare (being at the end of the road), the locals will go to no end of trouble to make you welcome.

Sept 2020: not a beach at all, as described above, but an excellent place for naturism. A mixed crowd but predominantly naked, even on a Sunday!



Vathi Gythiou

See on Google maps

The nudist beach is between camping Zeus and the rented rooms Mikro Chorio. If you are not going to stay at the camping, it's better to park here at the Mikro Chorio side. The beach is sandy, entrance to the water as well, then there's a flat rock (sandstone?). The sea is clear.

We visited the beach in July 2017. Nudism can only be done in the middle of the beach between camping Zeus and the rented rooms Mikro Chorio. On the beach I was [with] my wife, another couple, 2 men on their own and a woman on her own. A few years ago the whole beach was available for nudism. Unfortunately, it has now been confined to the middle of the beach. It is [still] a very beautiful beach.
August 2019: in the centre of the beach and between the camp of Zeus and the small village hotel there were 4 pairs of nudists, two women alone and 2 men alone. One woman continued to open her legs and show off her pussy. The sea very clean and very good atmosphere.

We visited the beach twice in June 2020 and confirm that the part between Camping Dias and Mikro Chorio is still 100% nudist. The beach and scenery are very beautiful and the water is clean and clear.
August 2020: I came there with my wife on a workday afternoon. There were about 30 naturists - single men, women, couples, families, very relaxed atmosphere. Also next day in the morning there were quite many naturists. Really clear water, easy access to the water, nice for swimming. The beach bar of camping Zeus is in walking distance (but you unfortunately have to dress for that). In my opinion the best beach on Peloponnese.

We visited the beach early July 2020. Nudism can only be done in the middle of the beach between camping Zeus and about 100 m. before the rented rooms Mikro Chorio. Nudist place is now pressed to the camping but still a large part of the beach. On the beach they were about 20 nudists, many single men (that's a problem because some of them were voyeurs), couples -heterosexual, gays and lesbian, and 2 lonely women, one of them layed totally naked just after the end of camping site parasols (a cutie). One of the best nudist beach at Peloponesse.

Zeus campsite is one of the nicest campsites we have seen in whole Greece, just the equipment is rather old and not in the best condition.


Mavrovouni beach

See on Google Maps

A beautiful sandy beach, length 6 km, situated 3 km outside Gythio town, in southern Peloponnese, in Laconia the distance is 3 hours drive from Athens. There are 3 camping sites; "Meltemi", "Gythion Bay" and "Mani Beach". The beach is easily accessed. On its one end near the rocks it's completely isolated and reportedly ideal for nudism.
A visit in June 2009 found no part of the beach isolated, but a walk along the whole beach would probably have produced a spot where nudism was possible.

August 2017: During high season no part of the beach was isolated and no nudist section. Although, as the sunset comes, the beach gets empty, making the places far from the parasols promising for late evening or night nudism and swimming.
July 2018: Nudism impossible all over the beach due to the tourist invasion. One more paradise lost.
June 2020 Very few people were on the beach, so it was easy to find a spot to strip. Especially in 2 spots: a) east of Camping Gytheion Bay and b) east of Ktima Petalea.
We were there early July 2020 a mid day. Nobody was naked. Few bathers, all dressed, at these nice spots east of Camping Gytheion Bay and east of Ktima Petalea. We left the beach and went to Vathi.

Elos beach

See on Google maps

A good choice for naked sunbathing and swimming is "Elos beach" or "Kiani akti beach". Follow the sign "to Elos" on the road after Skala going to Monemvasia, turn to the right and go to the beach called "Kiani akti", after 2-3 km. The road is well made and you can see a forest with orange trees before the beach. Turn to the left facing the sea after "Kiani akti" beach bar, leave your car and walk a few metres. The beach is huge and while we arrived was deserted (May 2019). Only a motor home was parked there. A couple reached the motor home and left the beach at the time we arrived. As the woman didn't wear any underwear under her little white dress we supposed that they enjoyed the whole beach naked as we did.

Nisos Elafonissos

This island properly belongs here in the Lakonian Gulf but is presently described in the Saronic section.

Hamokelo beach

See on Google maps

This a huge beach starting from the Prehistoric Graveyard and stretching to Maganos beach. We visited in July 2020 and apart from a couple of families at the western end, it was completely deserted.



Kodili beach

See on Google Maps

This beach is east (about 1 km) of a small port called Vivari, which is half-way between Drepano Nafplioy and Iria (about 10 km from Nafplion/Argolida). From Vivari you can see a cape on the left side of the bay with a white chapel (probably Agios Nikolaos) on the tip. Close to this cape is the naturist beach. To reach it you follow the road along the coast in the direction of Iria. The road goes up (Taverna Exedra a few hundred metres out of the village has a wonderful set of outdoor tables perched on a platform built out from the cliff with a beautiful view of Vivari and its little gulf - recommended! - GPS waypoint N 37 32' 10", E 22 55' 24") and after about 3 kilometres on the highest point there is a turn-off. There is a sign with "Kodili beach" on it. You have another magnificent view from here over the bay of Argos, peninsulae in front of it and the high mountains of the Peloponnese behind. It is an asphalt road which goes right down to the beach. The beach is in fact divided into two parts by a hill, of which the foot just touches the water. The road arrives on the right part, which is over 600m long. Here are two bars, so this section is entirely textile. Cars can be parked all along this beach at the back.

The left part beyond the bars is the most suited for naturism. You must climb over rocks for a few metres or wade round them to reach several hundred metres of more beach. It's a big beach but narrower; most of it is pebbly.

"Kavafis" reports on the forum (July 2017): I´ve been to Kondili beach, identified as a possible spot for naturism near Nafplio. First of all, it seems that things there have changed quite a lot since the Captain wrote his first review. Today, it is a crowded textile beach, very easy to reach by car. However, if you walk to the left part, in the direction of the little church, there are indeed possibilities of nudism. This area was almost empty when I visited it in July with my partner, except for a nudist couple (who looked like regulars). Although the water was very clean and warm, and the place is beautiful, there are problems:
1) as in many other secluded beaches in Greece, people leave garbage there;
2) There is a constant movement of textiles coming from the main beach, either by boat or swimming, and a number of boats also stay there as the place is great for snorkelling. Although we were not bothered by anyone, including by a textile couple that came quite close to the area, it affects somehow the relaxation you expect from a naturist beach. So does anybody know about another naturist beach in the surroundings? I know the Captain mentions a second beach [now distinguished as Kantia, following] but it doesn't look too promising as the area is heavily built and inhabited now. Otherwise, this part of Kondili could be a very good nudist beach, if more naturists start to come and consolidate it as a nudist place and if people stop throwing garbage there!
"Pab" replied (Apr 2018) that Kodili used to be "very naturist" many years back!
It was so safe, even single women would go there either topless or totally nude. Although it was mostly young couples.
Couples having sex were quite common, too, at the more secluded areas of the beach.
Today, I do not know why, it is very rare to find anyone there, either dressed or nude. (I am referring to the "nude" section only. Not to the main textiles beach)

Overcrowded beach (August 2018) with totally more than 150 dressed bathers. Cptn should remove Kodili from the catalog.

This is situated to the west of Kantia village, but is still in an undeveloped, arable area according to the aerial photography kindly provided by Google.

1 km east from the turn to "Kodili" and 100m before a small bridge, you can see, on your right, a village house with pine trees and rails around it. There's a 'P' painted in red on the stone corner of a wall (GPS waypoint of turn-off N 37 31' 41", E 22 57' 23"). Turn right on to small road with half-asphalt for the first 50 metres and then unsurfaced until the end (not so bad). Advice is not to follow the track all the way. After about 100m, take a sharp left turn by a large eucalyptus tree, go past another track heading off to your right and a whitewashed wall on your left, then follow the track round to the right and go all the way to the end - there's room for several vehicles to park there (turn round when you arrive, just in case). The original, western, track is rather longer and less kind to the tyres and suspension, although there is a large rough parking area at its end (don't try the middle track, it's very narrow in parts, and it is very easy to end up blocking access for the farmers who live and work there). If you use the easier eastern track, turn right when you get onto the beach, turn left at the beach if you used the western track.

You will now have arrived at a very big beach suitable for nudism. However there's much shingle both on the beach and for two metres while entering the water. The water is not clear. Once you have passed the shingle you can swim quite well although there are many rollers. Overall, my contributors do not think it is a really exciting beach. But you are quite alone: not more than a few couples. Most seem to cluster round the point where the middle track comes out onto the beach. There's less sand here - unless the sea is very calm in which case a narrow strip appears right by the water's edge - and the underwater is almost entirely stones and rock, so plastic sandals are recommended for avoiding scratches and sea-urchin spines. Non-naturists use this beach too, although there are rather more of them a bit further east by the two tavernas of Kantia beach (again, recommended).

After visiting Iria and Kodili, beaches completely textile, we went to Kantia. Correct directions above. No sign at the main road, turn right just before a bridge and follow a 1km unpaved road in good condition, so no 4X4 vehicle needed. At the junction of this unpaved road (200m after the main road) turn right. Park at the end of the road, carefuly to avoid getting stuck in the sand. The beach is huge and the sea clean and very warm! The left part from the park point is textile. To reach the nudist section just go to the right facing the sea.
We were there in high season (August 2018). We sat about 30m after the carpark after another nude couple. At the nudist section of the beach that is larger than 200m, there were only 5-6 naked heterosexual couples (only a shy woman topless), 2 gay couples, a couple of topless women in front of the parking and 3-4 individual men. In the afternoon there came a dressed family and stayed left and two dressed couples - they stayed near the parking point. After understanding the nudist credentials of the beach one of these women took her bra off. Sometimes individual men make problems at nudist beaches: I saw a man who sat near a couple next to us although the beach is huge, watching the naked woman who turned her ass to him.
I noticed also 4 couples having sex in the sea, including us after understanding that sexual activities are accepted there.
Probably the best nude beach at Peloponissos, so go there.
We were there a mid-day late July 2019. Clean and warm sea although some litter at the beach. There were about 4-5 nudist couples including us, 2-3 dressed couples and a group of men. The beach has lost the erotic and relaxed atmosphere due a fat local wandering man. This man was walking all the length of the beach and stared at every naked woman, so be careful.

August 2020: I visited this beach with my wife on a sunny workday afternoon. When we came, the beach was completely empty. Later one single man and one couple came, all of them being textile - so once again we were the only naked people on the beach. The beach itself is a pebble beach and you need to walk over some rocks in the water before you can swim - where we were this was OK even without shoes. The sea was not turbid and it was quite windy there. We didn't drive to the very end of the road as I was afraid of getting the car stuck in sand. Just next to the end of the road is a place suitable for wild camping - but not sure whether someone would not have a problem with it.

Iria Beach

here on Google Maps

A few miles further on again a new tourism area is being developed at Iria Beach - two or three miles of gravelly sand with the 200m strip between sand and road being infilled with villas, campsites and apartments. The limited beach nudity we and a few others enjoyed seemed to be unremarked and accepted. Not the greatest CO beach ever, but certainly pleasant and worth a visit if you are in the area. There's even a few trees providing natural shade if you get there early enough to grab them, and the views across to the islands of Platia and Psili are good - if the air's reasonably clear you can see Astros on the other side of the Argolikos Gulf.

Heavily touristy beach, so nudism impossible (August 2018). Cptn should remove the beach from the catalog. [Maybe but this is in August?]

SARONIC GULF (mainland)


See on Google maps

August 2021: Methana is volcanic peninsula towards the north of the Peloponnese. There are many unmarked beaches that even in August are suitable for naturism. The one marked is is nice because the path to it starts at the free Pausanias baths. Provided it is a quiet season there is no reason not to enjoy a warm spa nude if you like. The beach is about 300m further on. It is also accessible from the road but parking will be an issue.

This is a secluded beach next to Kehries ancient port between Kehries town main beach and Kalamaki Beach Hotel, on the old (coastal) road from Korinthos to Epidavros. This is a great beach for nudism and topless sunbathing. Immediately after Kalamaki Hotel intersection there is a hidden cement road that goes around the fenced area of Kehries Ancient port. The road goes a few metres uphill and then all the way downhill to the beach and ends in a little square. Then you will see a beach in front of the camping, it's usually textiles beach. On your left you will see a vertical rock with a hole in the middle. The textile-free beach is behind that rock. You will have to walk 20 metres in shallow waters (50 cm top). Beware, there are plenty of urchins there. The area is is full of life, so you may inevitably have some amateurs snorkelling nearby. Especially on weekdays it is a great CO beach.

This report is now confirmed as quite accurate (August 2017).
