Welcome to Captain Barefoot's Naturist Guide to the Greek islands, the Net's most comprehensive collection of information about naturist beaches in Greece - the original and still the best!!

... Online since 1996 ....

"Thank you, Captain, this is the best vacation we have ever had".
(Unsolicited remarks from one of my many contributors after holidaying in Samos)

Imagine ... lying naked on a lovely sandy beach, the calm sea lapping at your feet, the sun warming your body, while a gentle breeze softly caresses your bare skin.

Then ... floating in the warm sea, feeling nothing but the clear water around you ...

A delightful, natural feeling, enjoyed by increasing numbers of men, women and families in many countries around the world.

With huge numbers of places to go nude, naked or clothes optional (whatever you want to call it)  Greece is second to none as a destination where you can enjoy naturism.

The ancient Greeks more or less invented nudism - they practised all their games naked, and carved some wonderful nude statues. The modern Greeks, with their marvellous hospitality, continue this tradition, and are generally wonderfully tolerant of being naked, nude or naturist.

If you'd like to know about places, especially in the Greek Islands, where naked or nude bathing is possible, you've come to the right place.

These pages depend very much on you, our readers. The Captain spent years assembling these pages, but conditions are changing all the time, and this guide is made possible by the numerous readers who contribute reports on the beaches where they have shed their clothes without giving offence. However beaches change from year to year and from season to season - even from day to day. So, if you holiday in Greece and have experience of naturist beaches please use this site to pass information to me for adding to the site.  Please let us know what you discover, whether good news or bad, and we will endeavour to pass it on. Next year, your successors will thank you.

What's New?

A new, interactive Islands section of Captain Barefoot's Naturist Guide that allows readers to enter reports and updates on naturist beaches directly. 

The Islands pages are now in the form of a Wiki, which enables readers to update them straight away.  We ask only that you join the site; members of the site can edit all islands pages.  This will represent a huge improvement on the existing arrangement, which depends on your Captain editing the site based on reports submitted via the Reports Form or via email.  It should mean that the sites many readers benefit from the most up to date information provided by the naturist community.  Members who are logged on also have access to a printer-friendly version of the site.

Everyone who registers should be aware of the Wikidot privacy policy.

The new site is linked seamlessly with this page.  Simply select an island or go to the new island index to enter it.


Regular visitors will notice a new design for the site.  This aims to give Captain Barefoot's Guide a more modern and neater look and make it easier to navigate

An improved contact page has been added following complaints from some readers that the old one did not always work.

The Guestbook has been closed due to excessive spam.  A new one will be introduced in due course.

With some formerly naturist beaches being swallowed by the textile hordes, the Captain has started to collect an archive of reports of such beaches as they were.  You can read it here.


Island Updates:  Sincere thanks to the many naturists who have submitted beach reports.

The Captain is delighted to welcome the island of Nissiros to the site.  There's also a new report of a beach in Epirus, on the Greek Mainland, as well as numerous other updates.

2006 saw the relaunch of The Captain's site with a new home and domain, having been unceremoniously dumped, without notice after 10 years, by Yahoo/Geocities.  Gee, thanks, guys.

We were back online after only a couple of days but the Captain appreciates that regular readers may have taken some time to find the site.  And despite the Captain's best efforts some old links are still out there on the Web.    Nonetheless our site stats show lots of hits and I think most of the audience is now back.  Read more about the origins of the site.
