Nude on the beach

I live near the coast. There is no official nude beach except on the first Saturday of the month when the council has agreed to a small area made available for nude sunbathing. However, on quiet days I have often been naked there and never had a problem. On a couple of occasions I have also taken a short nude walk along the beach. I have found that on Greek beaches it depends who gets there first. If the nudists arrive early , the beach will be nude or CO all day. Similarly, if you take the plunge and strip off on the beach others often follow suit, or unsuit!

I have found that to be true on Spanish beaches - get there early, strip off and others will follow. Actually I don't have to be all that early.

Yes, thats how we found both the Greek and Spanish beaches. Much more relaxed and not uptight about life!

Are there any clothing optional beaches in Queensland? I know NSW has a few and more that allow topless women.

I don't think any are official. I quite like Alexandria Bay when staying in Noosa Heads but there are occasional reports of police presence. When I was there in late 2019 I had A-Bay largely to myself each day by walking there at the crack of dawn before spending the rest of my day with the family around the main beach. Semi-thong bottoms were popular with the young females and an occasional G-string, while toplessness was rarer and only while on the towel.

I'm not sure if toplessness is a legal issue anywhere in Australia; it's not referenced in Victorian legislation though conceivably drawing specific attention to breasts may be seen as lewd behavior. Just walking around may be fine.

I sunbake nude all the time on various Sunshine Coast beaches I keep to myself and don't flaunt it so as not to offend anyone. When the beach is clear I will wander down to the water and swim naked.

It can also depend on what day of the week it is, in Greece, Spain etc. On weekdays we've often found places to be mostly nudist, while locals might visit at weekends and the beach is more of a textile one, though our nudity has never been a problem. If a beach is mostly textile on certain days its often possible to walk a bit further along the coast and find nudists there if you prefer relaxing among like-minded nude beach goers.

We will be on a cruise that includes Rhodes and Santorini in November.
Will it be warm enough for the beach?
Do you know of a nude beach on either island?

Its a long time since I've been to Rhodes, the beach we spent the most time on nude was just north of the main beach at Archangelos, you walk around the end of the point at the main textile beach and it was virtually all nudists there. We explored the whole island, the further south and remote the beach, the more we found other nudists.
