Nude beaches Italy



Spiaggia de Guvano has been popular with nude bathers since the 1960s.


Located on the gorgeous Cinque Terre, this primo Italian nude beach looks like something out of a movie (think "Swept Away " -- the 1974 version directed by Lina Wertmüller.)

Adding to the beach's mystique is the fact that it can only be reached via an old, abandoned railway tunnel (bring a flashlight) on a path from Corniglia village.

Guvano is totally primitive, with no facilities of any kind, so bear this in mind when planning your visit.

The beach is also pebble rather than sand, but the water is clear, clean and gorgeous.

Spiaggia di Guvano, 19018 Vernazza, SP, Italy

Vernazza, Italy

Spiaggia di Guvano might be the best destination on this list for travelers who love to get off the beaten path. Getting to this secret beach is an adventure that requires you to bring your own flashlight and cross through an abandoned tunnel. At the end of the tunnel is a quiet little beach where you can leave your clothes on the sand and soak in the beauty of Cinque Terre away from the suffocating crowds.

6. Guvano Beach -Corniglia, Italy

In order to get to Guvano Beach one must walk through an abandoned railway tunnel that has both entrance and exit visible at all times (a good safety feature if naked). It is not unlike others on the list in that it’s hidden away from the touristy spots, with a backdrop of cliffs and a secluded entrance way along the railroad tracks. It’s roomy out there, and the water is just as accommodating. Seeing is better than believing, as this remote Italian town is built on top of a cliff surrounded by beautiful forests and steep hills. It is recommended to stay overnight to explore all the region has to offer, and book a ferry or boat tour while there. Guvano Beach has less of a resort feel than other beaches on the list do, and more of a private secluded getaway feel, made for a secret agent or celebrity.
