Naturism is winning followers throughout the world. Some people see it as a way of life, some people think of it as an aberration and yet others see it as a great business. In any case, it seems that this phenomenon does not stop spreading. Despite this, naturism is still seeking its place in a society that seems increasingly tolerant.
Countries like Germany have a long naturism tradition. In the case of Spain, it is a more recent phenomenon. Only two decades have passed since the crime of public scandal was abolished, a law inherited from the Franco regime that could be applied in case someone offended “decency or morality with scandal or acts of grave importance”. But years have passed and nudism has been implemented gradually. For example, in Barcelona, there is a long list of naturist beaches. Today the law protects Spanish nudity on the beaches and the city itself is a nudist town. One can go without clothes in the street if they so wish.
In fact, the city has some urban naturist beaches near these metro stations: Barceloneta, Ciutadella, Bogatell, Poblenou, Llacuna, Selva de Mar and El Maresme Forum. The beaches of Sant Sebastian, Nova Icària, Bogatell, Mar Bella, Nova Mar Bella and Llevant, with all sorts of services - from supervision to the hire of sunbeds and bars - are the most famous.
But not all the nudist beaches of Barcelona are located in the city. In Sitges, for example, there are two popular nudist beaches: the Home Mort beach, whose access is a bit complicated, and semi-urban Balmins beach, with golden and fine sand.
In the Maresme area there are numerous beaches to choose from: as the Ponent beach in Masnou, with pedestrian access; another easily accessible beach is the Musclara beach, in Caldes d’Estrac. It also has waitress service, fine sand and it is located at the end of the maritime club; other interesting nudist beaches are the Forti beach, the Mataró beach, the Murtra beach in Sant Pol de Mar, and the Roca Grossa beach, in Calella.
In the Garraf area there is the small Morisca beach and in the Baix Llobregat area, the Parque de las Dunas beach, (in Castelldefels), with the nudist area near Gavá.
But in Barcelona there are not only nudist beaches: you can also find nudist pools as the Bernat Picornell, close to the Palau Sant Jordi on Montjuic, which open to nudists on Saturday from 21:00 to 23:00 hours and in winter from 16:15 to 18:00 hours on Sundays (beginning on October 7th).
