#16322 Naturism Near Makrigialos

Posted by gordy on 25 May 2010 - 10:48 PM in Explore Crete

Hi, my girlfriend and I stayed in Makrigialos in 2001 & 2002 and visited the Diaskari & Laganda beaches a couple of times. There was a nice taverna at the carpark next to Diaskari run by a young couple, and they also rented some hammocks under straw covered shelters on the beach. The Diaskari beach was never too busy but I don't recall seeing any nudists, but over the headland on to Laganda beach it was pretty much deserted - there may be 10 - 15 people along a 1km beach. This was where we first tried out nude sunbathing and we haen't looked back since. It's unlikely that you will offend anyone on this beach - from what we;ve seen in June, it's pretty isolated. There are further opportunities for nude sunbathing to the east of Makrigialos - you'll need a car however, but it's well worth exploring. Xerokampos is an exilerating drive, and there are a few beaches there where you can get naked. Again, you are not likely to see too many people on these beaches, but if privacy is your thing, you're going to the right place!
