Croatia nudist cruising along the Adriatic coast, hopping from one island to another or discovering hidden coves and caves, has become increasingly popular in last years.

Whether you are a romantic couple, a family, single, or a senior who enjoys the freedom of nudist bathing, the warmth of the sun and water may equal other southern or tropical destinations, but only in Croatia you can find the picturesque scenery of the Dalmatian coast.

With its quaint villages, old historic stucco houses with red tile roofs, and small stores to browse in, you will enjoy your time off the beach as well. The beauty of this coast and country is reason enough to make you decide to plan your next cruising vacation in Croatia.

Nudist cruising in CroatiaDid you know that the first nudist beach was in Croatia on the island of Rab? In 1936 Edward VIII and his beloved Wallis Simpson came to Yugoslavia to vacation. Read more about naturism in Croatia!

The hotel where they stayed made special arrangements to get permission from the town authorities so they could swim in the nude. They enjoyed it so much that they encouraged others, the word spread, and the first official nudist bathing began there.

Since then, many private beaches have opened giving tourist many choices of locations to continue to enjoy nudist bathing, or to try it for the first time.

Nudist cruising means:

  • Less clothes = less luggage = less hassle
  • It’s a completely different vacation idea.
  • Getting naked, even for a short time it’s a great felling.
