Title: Vera playa map
Post by: stevenat on 05 February 2012, 13:09:16 PM
Hi,
Is there any chance of the vera playa map being updated although we have only been once and are coming again in June I see some of the places on the map are outdated such as the Wok above Consum and maybe some of the bars have changed names etc.

Thanks in advance for any replies

Before the season starts we shall do a wonder-around-type-thing and note changes that have occurred, whose open, whose gone and who has changed name or moved around... a nasty job...but someone will have to face the task... we can then ask Phil to update his excellent map...

It's a bit difficult at the moment, it's right in the middle of the 'closed season' - several of the bars that currently look abandoned will re-open 'under new management' at Easter.  There are signs of life at the old Lenos Y Carbon for instance.  In the meanwhile,  Carmen's, Frankie's,  Blue Parrot,  Mayo 2004, Paso Doble and Vera Natural Chiringuito are all open for the winter crowd, which is pretty good going.

When we were out (in the frost!!!!) in February, I think we had either a drink or a meal in all of them. El Balconcito was also open, and Leno's & Carbon was in the midst of some serious internal reconstruction. We were pleasantly surprised to find Consum was operating to 915am-915pm opening hours too.

For that all important 'should we get and crack open a second bottle of wine?' moment in the day, you understand.  :D

It was good to pop our coats on, toddle over to Consum and pick up another bottle (and some nibbles to accompany it) at 830pm.

The latest version (18th August 2012) of the map was emailed to Alan today.

The only alterations being "Wok Chinese" (previously above Consum) has been deleted and all the known Wi-Fi hot spots around the naturist area have been added. Anybody is free to PM me if you know of any others.
Simularly so with any other places of interest which may be within the boundaries of the existing maps of either Vera Playa or Puerto del Ray.

Thanks Phil,

I?ve put them on the site ? thanks.
When I was there a couple of weeks ago I noticed that the Coviran on the roundabout to Puerto Rey was closed, I?m not sure if that is permanent or for refurbishment, I couldn?t see much activity there.

Does anybody know what's happening there?

Alan
Title: Re: Vera playa map
Post by: John and Maureen Berry on 19 August 2012, 13:39:47 PM
We used a couple of very nice traditional Spanish bars within the Puerto Rey map area on the tapas crawl last year, sadly I can't remember their names and precise location, as soon as we get back I'll send them. 

Does anybody know the name of what was Lenos & Carbon?  I was told that it was a very nice little Spanish bar,  it was finished /opened after we left.

Coviran was closed all last winter, I was wondering if it would re-open for the summer,  I don't think it can survive with Consum,  shame because it used to open on Sunday morning all year.  The garage on the roundabout on the way to Palomares sells most essentials on Sunday morning (pricey) - but the bakery at the top of Palomares is open all year on Sundays and you can call at Monikas on the way back for the freshest veg and fruit in the area.

Will do better this winter, honest!

I must not be seeing the updated version because these changes from Alan are not shown.
I notice it does not show the shop next to Vera Natura Reception. I assume that it must still be closed (as it was last year when we last visited)

Is the Cash Dispensing m/c / ATM in P del R still the only one nearby?
Could we put an arrow saying that there is one in Villaricos as well? (some of us do go in that direction as well  ;))

Thanks Nick

Hi Nick,

To the best of my knowledge, the shop to the left of Vera Natura reception is still closed.
To ensure that you are seeing the latest version:- Navigate to the Website home page, load the actual map onto your screen and then press "f5", your computer will then refresh the page and show the latest version (dated 20th August 2012).

Good point regarding ATM machines, I have now added a Euro logo and "Nearest ATM" in Puerto del Ray, Villaricos & Garrucha to my master copy together with an arrow and distance in km.  As soon as I have a few more updates, I will upload another revised version to Alan.

No problem, Phil

As the ATM at Puerto del Rey is now surrounded by flood damage and presumably unusable, can I suggest that the ATM (may be 2?) in Palomares is added to the map? (about 4kms from VP, right then left at Repsol garage)

Hi Great work Alan and Phil.
Does this map carry weight,I mean does it stand up if challenged.
If somebody says you shouldn't walk or be here or whatever have we a leg to stand on?
E g Hotel Street A grey area Right?
IF A Cop Car Comes along and you are asked to cover up are they within their rights to ask?
The map is clear  to me , but is it only our interpretation of the limits.
Thanks Lads.
Title: Re: Vera playa map
Post by: Phil B-C on 03 May 2013, 16:15:43 PM
Hi 1916,
The map has been evolving for many years and I think it is fair to say that it is based on considerable feedback from this (and a previous) forum as being "accepted common practice" for the majority of naturists who frequent Vera Playa.
There will always be "grey areas" (as with Hotel Street) which some say IS naturist whilst others firmly state that it is NOT.
Correct me if I am wrong but you posted back in June 2012 that the Hotel reception staff themselves had told you that it was OK to be naked there ! However, in fairness to ALL those who make use of the map (who might not have had a personal okey dokey from the hotel itself) it remains a "grey area" on the map to try and satisfy everyone.

The shading on the beach from green (naturist) to red (textile) depicts the limits to which there seems to be contrary opinion amongst naturists over the years but, none-the-less, still reflects "accepted common practices" - some stay firmly within the green area, others regularly stray further and claim to have never had any problems.

Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on ones point of view), there is no exact demarcation point so "grey areas" and shading the beach from green to red seems to be the only logical way of satisfying everyone.

As to the map "carrying weight" and "standing up if challenged" (I assume you mean in court) - obviously the answer has to be no.
Regarding being asked to cover up by the police - if you stay within the green area when naked the situation won't arrise.
As for Hotel Street ..... it's still a grey area  :)

Phil

There is some info on our main website about naturism in Vera Playa  (http://www.veraplayafriends.com/index.php/page,13.html (http://www.veraplayafriends.com/index.php/page,13.html)) and that article contains a link about the legality of naturism in Spain.

There's also a thread about naturism in Hotel Street here http://www.veraplayafriends.com/index.php/topic,609.0.html (http://www.veraplayafriends.com/index.php/topic,609.0.html)

Thank you both, yes I did ask the question at reception once.a firm yes was the answer.I think there should be no grey area in fairness we are creating it ourselves. once you come in off the public main road that is it until you leave again.As far as im concerned the whole zone is naturist no half measures .Its up to the person themselves to dress according to their own comforts.
People entering the naturist zone expect to encounter naked people.If that is an issue they don't have to stay.
Thanks

 " Fortunately" as far as I'm concerned .I'm sure that if there were a definite demarcation naturists  would be confined to a smaller area than we are  now .The current attitude seems to be if you're comfortable being naked somewhere , do it.  I used to see a nude jogger disappearing off the north end of the beach and coming back 20+ minutes later. Obviously his "green area " wouldn't even fit on this website's map!
Title: Re: Vera playa map
Post by: Phil B-C on 05 May 2013, 09:13:54 AM
I totally agree with you Rob.
Whilst official signs would eliminate any grey areas and provide a naked "comfort zone" for some, I am sure that at the end of the day any additional signs would indeed restrict the areas currently used by naked joggers / walkers etc.
In the absence of official signs (there is only one so far as I am aware), I think the current map system works well for the majority of both naturists and textiles.
Title: Re: Vera playa map
Post by: 1916 on 05 May 2013, 12:05:13 PM
Don't get me wrong everything is working fine.
no need for any more signs.
Vera Playa naturist resort is widely know throughout Europe as a top class family naturist resort That is what it is.
I understand its not Gated which is a good thing.
I just think  all the public streets bars restaurants could be used by naturists without restrictions.
If you go to Old Trafford you expect to see football.go to Wentwort you see golfers go to Vera Playa you see naked people if it upsets you don't go there.
Any restrictions within the complex of Cape da Agde?

Purely by chance I happened to notice two map updates posted on various threads on the forum today (add "Pirate Bar" to the "Cota Zero" and "Loui's" tags, plus Wi-Fi is available on the "Marina Natura" urbanisation.
If anybody happens to notice anything that requires updating / adding / deleting on the map, please feel free to contact me via PM / email or simply post something on the "Vera Playa Map" page of the forum which I obviously monitor. This would keep the map current and save time and effort for both myself and Alan  :)

When we were out in May, we noticed that the road between Vera Natura and Bahia and La Menara is now 2 way. Don't know for how long it's been like this but we're sure that it was one way in December.

Many thanks for making such excellent maps of the area.

We were over last month and confirm it is now two way. Does this give us double the chance of running over the inconsiderate dog owners that have made the verges so unpleasant.
Title: Re: Vera playa map

One thing I did notice is that they have made that road all "no parking" which has considerably reduced the amount of parking around that area.

Title: Re: Vera playa map
Post by: Sun4us on 12 June 2013, 15:01:42 PM
So this avenue is now no parking as well as two way. We hope it doesn't encourage speeding! Vehicle parking in the past had at times caused problems when the road width was severely reduced, but I suppose there are folk who have to park somewhere. (see photo) We think it's possibly a good thing though for those who are on the Parque Vera and Natsun side who want to drive to, for instance, Consum, without having to join the main road at the top and go the long way round.
Title: Re: Vera playa map
Post by: John and Maureen Berry on 12 June 2013, 17:02:57 PM
It's now even more of a benefit to have an apartment with designated reserved parking. They did try this the last summer before the road was made one way, then came back, painted out the yellow curbs and introduced the one-way system.  Personally, I'm very glad to see it back as 2 way.  In July and August parking will be at a premium in Vera Playa.

While I was in VP I spotted an error on the map.The beach bar which is labelled on the map as "El Chumbo" isn't "El Chumbo", "El Chumbo" is in fact the next bar north along the beach (and off our map). The bar just north of the hotel doesn't have a name sign and anybody I asked didn't seem to know the name of it.

So can anybody help, what is the name of that bar?

This new chringuito that has opened the 27th of july is called "Playa Turquesa" and is said to be textile (...)
(the name is on the sunscreens)

The Playa Turquesa seems to mark the split on this part of the beach. South nearly 100% naturist, north about 70% textile / 30% naturist.  Both in September last year and in July this year we felt comfortable strolling right up to the rock groyne where Palo-mares beach starts in the nude and saw naturist sunbathers mixed with textile all the way. No bare bottoms on Palo-mares beach though. On the other end the split seemed to be very definite at Chiringuito Pom D'Oro, i.e. suddenly fully textile at that point, but 50 yards north mostly naturist. Still in both directions I think it's fair to say that naturist beach use extends a bit further than the website map suggests.

I think you are right in that the bar itself is textile only.
Title: Re: Vera playa map
Post by: Nic Galbraith on 20 September 2015, 20:25:21 PM
First, thank you Phil for putting together the very useful map of Vera Playa.
I have a few suggestions, based on what we saw this month.
1. Assuming that the green/red code on roads means actual naturist use (rather than the legal situation if that exists...) I would suggest colouring the road from the entrances of Bahia de Vera and   Torremar Natura towards the beach green; We saw it used by (nude) naturists as a useful shortcut from these locations to the beach.
2. We saw quite some nude use of the boulevard, even beyond Bahia2, without complaints from non-naturists. Extend the green zone somewhat?
3. On the other hand, we saw no nude visitors to  El Balconcito and to Frankies. A waitress at Frankies told us that Frankies has a new owner, who does not wish to serve nude customers.
4. We walked the Hotel Street nude during daytime several times and never heard complaints or felt akward. Evenings are quite different: totally textile.
Title: Re: Vera playa map
Post by: Phil B-C on 20 September 2015, 21:28:00 PM
Unfortunately, and with the greatest of respect, I cannot update the map every time someone sees a naked walker in a new location. The red/green roads on the map have remained unchanged for many years without any conflict of opinion even between naturists on this (or indeed the previous) forum so it's reasonable to assume that everyone accepts it as a true representation of "the accepted norm" (as opposed to everyone's individual  interpretation of Spanish law).

The road from the entrances of Bahia de Vera and Torremar Natura all the way to the beach has always been marked in green (perhaps you were referring to the footpath opposite ?).

With regard to Hotel Street, this has always been a grey area even amongst us naturists so, as regards the map, it was only right to always portray it as such - perhaps I should actually colour it grey as opposed to the ambiguous "unofficial" naturist ?
However, every bar and restaurant on Hotel Street were asked if they wanted to be depicted as naturist friendly or not and the map was marked accordingly. We cannot be held responsible if an establishment reverses their decision without advising us.

Perhaps logically the answer is, as Hotel Street is known to be a grey area, I remove all red and green establishment labels within this zone and mark them also in grey ?  It would therefore be up to the individual to decide if he/she ventured naked in this zone (and/or individual establishments within it) and decide for themselves afterwards if they felt comfortable or not (as applies to any area within the map) ?

http://www.veraplayafriends.com/index.php/topic,2536.0.html (http://www.veraplayafriends.com/index.php/topic,2536.0.html)

Personally I feel the map is fine how it is right now, and makes it very clear about the hotel street situation.

Balconcito has a sign in the window saying 'naturists always welcome' and I have seen people heading to the Blue Parrot naked.

Post by: Phil B-C on 27 November 2017, 18:21:27 PM
Hi John,

The Vera Playa forum, website and map are intended for those who love naturism at Vera Playa so naturally we promote establishments within the naturist zone or the immediate vicinity but OK, you caught me   ;)
I did add Monika's Bar at Palomares many months ago as it's a popular watering hole for long term VP residents (and a personal favourite LOL) but the map is getting a bit crowded so this was an exception rather than a precedent.

However, If you have a favourite bar/restaurant outside of the naturist zone, why not start a new topic under "Places of interest/places to visit" with the title "Bars & restaurants" (plus a little write-up) and others can add their favourites to the list (again with a write-up).... If it's popular enough, we could give it it's own spot and those that are the most popular could (space permitting) also be added to the map ?

 :)

The map is terrific.  I suspect there is not room for this, but just in case... I wonder if folks would find it helpful to have the establishment hours noted where room allows, maybe in parenthesis right after name, such as:  "Pirate Bar (9-17)"

Unfortunately, this would not be practical as quite a few bars/restaurants have "flexible" hours depending on how busy they are.

The following was added to the disclaimer …

NOTE: The depicted naturist beach does not represent the full extent of the larger "official" naturist beach (the original limits of which have become blurred over time). 
The area shown in yellow merely represents the most commonly used portion of the official naturist beach where people should be able to feel the most comfortable when naked.

Phil,
I'd have said that the "hard yellow" of the beach extends a little further south, so as to include the sun loungers and shades of the installation south of Cantina Loca.
However, it's a stylisation so no matter  :)
I've found the map useful on every visit to VP; keep up the good work.

We can do that John,

I have now extended the hard yellow a tad South at my end but at the moment the file transfer program seems to be playing up (I'll give it another go later).

Please bear in mind that the map is primarily aimed at helping new visitors to Vera Playa so I don't want to creep too far away from "the most commonly used portion of the official naturist beach where people should be able to feel the most comfortable when naked".



All done, press "f5" to refresh image (should show today's date, 4th October 2018).

Thanks Phil, the map has been super useful for all matters of planning our trip and I'm sure will be even moreso when navigating the streets of the area.  ::::

On the next version of the map, please could you show the former location of Camino de los Tres Olivos, which was the original southern boundary of the official naturist zone?

Although this boundary is now historic and is no longer observed, it would be interesting to see where it was. I also believe it might be a good point at which to turn back when walking, particularly there are not enough people to judge whether or not continue naked.

I had researched this quite some time ago but unfortunately I couldn't find any official map showing the location of "Camino de los Tres Olivos" as a result, I'm afraid I can't add a location to the map based on speculation, theory, rumour or indeed wishful thinking.... hence the map has a gradual shading from yellow to pink.
Sorry.
