Nothing booked yet, but tentatively planning a couple of weeks in VP early May [ 2018 ]. Have never been there in May before, any feedback as to what kind of weather we might reasonably expect ?

I've been there in May about 3 times now and the weather is always pretty good :)

Hello Martyn,

I will also be in VP during that time, although just for one week :(

Really looking forward to it. Is anyone going on day trips to the various nude beaches? I am also thinking about visiting Cala de San Pedro. Does anyone know if nude hiking from the parking area north of Las Negras to San Pedro is OK?

Thanks!

It's difficult to visit these other beaches if you don't drive saunafan. I was lucky enough to get to Playa de las Muertos (sorry for spelling) a couple of years ago thanks to 2 kindly people. It's a lovely beach if you don't mind a steepish climb down a mountain (nothing too strenuous!).


As for the hiking I can't really comment as have never had the opportunity to do it, would love to try it but the lack of transport options rear their ugly head :(

Hi,
I am staying in one of the apartments and have a rental car for the duration of my stay, so getting there will not be a problem. Cabo de Gata seems to have lots of nude swimming opportunities and it seems that nude hiking is also not unheard of.

I guess you've seen the TripAdvisor post which suggests it's OK - https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowUserReviews-g187429-d1307660-r426066898-Cabo_de_Gata_Nijar_Natural_Park-Almeria_Province_of_Almeria_Andalucia.html

There's a lot of info on hiking trails on the Cabo de Gata website - http://www.cabogataspain.com/Gata-Nature-Reserve/Activities/Sport/Hiking-Trails.html

If you look at the San Pedro to Agua Amarga trail and download the leaflet, you'll see that the map also details the section from Las Negras to San Pedro.

Incidentally, the Beaches section of the website has lots of good info.

Thanks for the links, I think I will give it a try when I am there. Also hike nude from the car.

Seems that El Balconcito is now closed :( I really hope it reopens again soon.
