First: thanks a lot for your work with the Nude Lanza site! It really helped us before and during our 2-weeks on the island in January.
We stayed at Alondras in Puerto del Carmen, with private garden and pool, so of course we spent and enjoyed a lot of "bare" time there. But since we are naturist's for ages, we also like to spend time together with other like-minded people.
We visited a lot of beaches around the island in search for clothes-optional ones, but we became quite disappointed.. The beaches were surely not crowded, but we only saw textiles and more textiles everywhere... With two very nice exceptions:
The beaches at Papagayo which is on the outskirts of Playa Blanca - the south east side of the island. A beach easy to reach, there is a wide pathway leading down to the beach, starting almost from the parking place. Hundred of visitors - no "textilers" at all. Due to the tide, the beach became narrower and narrower, so it´s necessary to "regroup" during the day. Really a beach to visit for all naturists!
And then we went to Charco, and that was a relief..
We found Charco relaxed, easy-going, wild, wind-protected (!) but anyhow organised: we enjoyed good meals in the sunshine at Reiners, and of course made our shopping in Supermarket.
Unfortunately unable to meet you - we were there two Fridays, but only during daytime...
We are certainly interested in spending a week or two in Charco del Palo. We´ll be contacting you regarding that.
