VILLA JOYOSA council has declared their nudist beaches official!
The popular coves of Racó de Conill and l’Esparralló have been declared areas of traditional naturism and the council will continue to promote tourism to them by means of a poster campaign. The two nudist beaches – part of a 15 kilometre stretch – have long been famous for naked sunbathing and swimming but, until now, have not been officially recognised.
At the start of this week, the municipality placed new signs at the entrances to the beaches which proudly state in both Spanish and Valencian that it’s an ‘area of nudist traditions’.
The Racó de Conill is a small cove with a beach around 200 metres long and part of Finestrat. Access is via a short road with the final section completed on foot.
The beach at l’Esparrelló is on the other side of the town, near to Paradís beach, and is 160 metres in length.
Signposting has been changed to specifically advertise them as ‘nudist beaches’ rather than the old term of ‘naturist’. The council are quick to emphasise however that anyone can use the coves and there is no obligation for people to go naked on the beaches. This will be reflected in the posters and promotional material.
