: "Brazil is excellent for the beaches and girls, but no nudity."
: That is not true. Naturism in Brazil is surprisingly popular. Abrico Beach near Rio de Janeiro, for one. Galheta Beach on Santa Caterina Island, Floriaopolis. Praia do Pinho, near Florianopolis but not in it. Tambaba near Recife in the far north. Etc, etc. There are also some landed naturist clubs.
Must agree that ‘no nudity in Brazil’ was a bit inaccurate, but, having spent several weeks there and been to many beaches, there was no evidence to us that it is ‘surprisingly popular’. Out of the thousands of girls we saw in tiny bikinis, only three were topless!
There are, we believe, only two official nudist beaches in the whole country. Tambaba is one, and we went there. It is restricted to couples and nudity is compulsory, and, even though this is fundamentally what we want, we think nudity or clothing should be an option; we found the beach too regimented and hence felt uneasy there. Despite its dramatic setting, excellence for swimming and good facilities, it is unlikely we would go back.
The beach at Olho-de-Boi at the end of the peninsula at Buzios, a couple of hours North of Rio, is supposed to be nude, but bad weather prevented us room getting to it. There were several beaches where we did go nude, on Isla Grande, near Buzios, and at Canoa Quebrada near Fortaleza, but these were all quiet ones with no else around.
It’s a fantastic country, not just the beaches but also the people and relaxed lifestyle, as well as wildlife, jungles, scenery, architecture, history, food and much else. Hoping to go back some time, even I do have to keep my bikini on, but if as you say there is more nudity then all the better.
