Nudist Beaches Gran Canaria
Here we look at 10 of the better nudist beaches in Gran Canaria. Are you one of those who prefer your clothes on? check out 15 top beaches Gran Canaria.
#1 Nudist Beach Maspalomas
On Maspalomas beach is the world’s busiest nudist area, and is one of the largest destination for nudists. Naked area on the beach at the east end where the biggest dunes meet the sea. There are activity centers around the beach, and small kiosks where many nudists prefer to hire sunbeds instead of sitting on the sand. The gays nude area is at the kiosk with the huge rainbow flag. Nudism at Maspalomas is far more social than on a normal nude beach. People huddled in groups and talking. If you would rather have more space around you, so please choose another nudist beach where it is not so much people.
#2 Nudist Beach Playa del Inglés
The west end of Playa del Inglés, where it meets with Maspalomas beach is nudist area.
#3 Nudist Beach Montaña de Arena
Nudist beach Montaña de Arena is south of Gran Canaria, located at the foot of a giant dune just west of Pasito Blanco harbor. It has for a long time been a local nudist place, but has become more popular among tourists who want naturism outside Maspalomas and large crowds. The beach is a short walk from the GC 500 road (it has a bus stop). Today the track from Las Carpintera beach is gone, so you have to go to the east end of the dune to get down to the water. When you reach the top of the dune, look for the path that shows you the easiest way to get down.
#4 Nudist Beach Guayedra
Guayedra beach is located north-west of Gran Canaria, and is one of the island’s most pristine locations. Situated outside the GC-200, which connects the port of Agaete with the central rural area of La Aldea San Nicolás. Here is the beach at the bottom of a ravine, which limits the number of visitors and greatly increases the opportunity for those who actually come here, to leave the laundry lying in the sand. The beach is a mixture of sand and pebble beach and sea at Guayedra can be tough with strong waves so take it easy when you swim.
#5 Nudist Beach Guigui
This is actually two separate beaches (Guguy Chico and Guguy Grande), also known as Guigui, and this is one of the most isolated areas of the island and is only accessible by boat from the nearby La Aldea de San Nicolás or the even more distant Puerto de Mogan. You can not get to spend much time in the sand, but at least you will see it.
For a real Guigui experience, take hike from the village Tasartico beach (GC 200 road). It is a beautiful walk that takes a few hours.
#6 Nudist Beach Medio Almud
Medio Almud a quiet and sheltered naturist beach popular with local nudists on the south-west of Gran Canaria. It is a mixture of sand and pebbles, and you rarely see more than a dozen people on weekdays. Medio Almud is between Tauro and Taurito. The beach has a paved road down to the beach but it is blocked off. Park either or get off the bus at the bus stop, and go down to the beach.
#7 Nudist Beach Tiritaña
If you want a Guigui experience without the long walk, then Tiritaña is the place. It’s a short walk down the road and is almost always deserted. The beach mostly pebbles but has several sandy spots that are visible at low tide. Bring water and supplies.
#8 Nudist Beach Aguadulce
Aguadulce Beach in Gran Canaria is the finest nudist place east of Gran Canaria. Aguadulce beach is popular with locals and rarely hit one tourists there. Nudists are located at the eastern end of the small cliff which is a sheltered spot. Parker on Tufi and go north from the parking lot to get to the beach. It is just 100 meters down the hill.
#9 Nudist Beach El Confital
El Confital beach north of Las Palmas, is the most pristine beach on the north side of town, and is the only north of Gran Canaria facing south. This gives a great view of the island and over Teide volcano and stunning sunsets. El Confital is perhaps not so very remote as one might think, but once you get down to the beach it feels true enough that way. Head east toward Las Palmas’ Paseo de las Canteras, and follow the signs past La Puntilla and further into the vibrant neighborhood of La Isleta. Are you a stay of more private nature, it is recommended to visit the beach on a regular weekday, when the beach attracts many surfers on weekends. With one of Europe’s best surfing waves and a nudist area on the west side of the promenade, El Confital the best chillout place. During the week El confi, which is known to locals, it’s almost empty, but it fills up on weekends, especially if the waves is good. Read more about beaches in Las Palmas

The sand varies between golden and volcanic depending on tides and light, but the water here is almost always clear, and has a lovely turquoise color.
