Not only does Croatia have some of the world’s best nude beaches, popular with naturists from Europe and elsewhere in the world, but it’s also a budget friendly destination, with plenty more to offer.
In this article, we look at the history of Croatian nude beaches, as well as some of the best beaches to visit while you are in the country.
Far from being a new destination for fans of nude beaches, Croatia has been welcoming naturists from Europe and elsewhere for years, particularly those from Germany and Holland.
Croatia has over thirty official naturist beaches, all marked with ‘FKK’ signs (indicating Freikorperkultur in German), which means ‘Free Body Culture’ in English, as well as many unofficial, clothing optional naturist friendly beaches.
Most of the best known naturist beaches in Croatia are located within naturist resorts, while others have nearby naturist friendly campsites and accommodation. Most of the best known official beaches do charge entry fees, but there are unofficial beaches that are free, as well as beaches that are not designated as nude beaches, but which are deserted for most of the year, where it does not matter whether you choose to wear your suit or not!
You will find that some of the nude beaches in Croatia are aimed at specific groups. There are family friendly beaches, gay beaches, and adults’ only beaches, but there are also those that welcome anyone. Make sure you check before you visit one of these beaches, to make sure what your chosen beach’s designation is!
Even ordinary beaches in Croatia often have a nudist section, and most of the best known nude beaches aren’t out of the way, in fact, to reach many, you can simply take a walk from the nearest town!
