REVIEWS NATURIST BEACHES: PORTUGAL
NATURIST BEACHES: PORTUGAL

There are currently eight official naturist beaches in Portugal. From north to south, they are: 

LISBON:
Bela Vista and Praia da Adiça - Costa da Caparica, Almada
Meco - Alfarim, Sesimbra

ALENTEJO:
Salto - Porto Covo, Sines
Alteirinhos - Zambujeira do Mar

ALGARVE:
Adegas - Odeceixe
Ilha Deserta - Faro
Barril - Ilha de Tavira

However there are plenty more where nudity is accepted, or where all or part of the beach has become naturist in practice. The following list is by no means definitive - within reason you can go naked on any stretch of quiet beach, and Portugal has over 1800km of coastline - but it’s a good starting point.
