A hidden gem of a beach amongst the others in the area which merely hint at the freedoms enjoyed here. On my visit, a Saturday afternoon, the beach was absolutely packed(!) but, squeezing in amongst the myriad nudists, I at no time felt anything other than perfectly comfortable and welcome in their presence. The sea was quite rough but a... More

In the midst of the awful hotel blocks and tacky shops can be found this little gem. It would appear a predominantly gay beach but many MF couples also there. The beach was clean, and if you are a smoker ashtrays are available to take to the beach. There is a great bar offering a huge range of drinks and... More

An amazing little cove and beach located almost opposite the Flatotel apartments building, reserved for nudist all year round. Clothing is not an option which keeps the voyeurs away and the bar is really friendly. Access is down steep steps so not great for disabled or seriously unfit but certainly not a problem for even heavy smoking overweight me.

Hi all, it's keithNLiz again. We havebeen back again this yyear to this fantastic beach. I'm happy to tell all that the owner now serves food, very good well priced choice. This beautiful beach isn't miles from anywhere, it's on a main bus route, easy to get to and well worth the effort. If this is going to be your... More

Walked down the steps to this beach having spent 2 days previous sat on it but this time was returning to the airport. Got to bottom of steps with my towell and book and changed my mind due to poor sunshine. Returned to my car to find it had been broken into and all my belongings stolen. Everything leaving me...

As others have said, it's a small beach and is very popular, so it gets crowded. The beach itself is a bit stony so if you are going to swim, reef shoes are a good idea. There's a small bar, showers and toilets and it is an all nude beach, not really "clothing optional". It's quite a steep hill down... More

Between Malaga and Benalmadena there are not a lot of nudist beaches. We`ve been to two and liked Benalnatura most. Situated a little bit apart from tourist beaches, the atmosphere was very nice and familiar. The beach bar and the whole place is very nice. The only thing we didn`t like was the stony beach, you really had to be... More

Just returned from benalmadena (june 2013) and visited benalnatura three times, went alone I am a straight single guy and really enjoyed the beach. Very well run and I always found a spot to lay down my towel although I went late morning and left early afternoon as it started to get quite busy. Seemed to be predominantly gay men... More
