North Dalmatia Nudist Beaches Guide
The North Dalmatia nudist region extends over two counties, Zadar and Sibenik. Like in other counties along the coast, the most of naturist beaches are concentrated within naturist camping grounds and resorts.
Some of them are only partly reserved for nudists and rarely in recent year are exclusively designated for nudists.
The most of naturist camping sites are located along the mainland while on the numerous islands of Sibenik and Zadar archipelago there are many other nudist or clothing optional beaches that are not officially designated for naturists but are tolerated by local communities.
In both counties there are some small islands that are entirely dedicated to nudists where only naked sunbathers are welcomed. Today, except on official nudist beaches marked as ‘FKK’, nudity is often tolerated on many other so called ‘wild beaches’.
Lately yacht and boat charters in Croatia for all those who love to sail, navigate and explore the natural beauty of the Croatian coast and islands, has become the best way to practice the nude swimming and sunbathing, visiting secluded bays and coves that otherwise would never be able to visit.
Northern Dalmatia region with two-thirds of Croatia’s islands, is the best nautical destination for so-called bare-boat charters that permit you to enjoy the complete passenger privacy on board as well as a free choice of anchorages, marinas, sailing duration etc.
