Is there a nudist beach in Lisbon?

If you’re looking to go to a nudist beach in Lisbon, Praia 19 is where you need to head to.

Praia 19 – Just north of the village of Caparica, Praia is a stunning stretch of beach where Lisbon’s gay community tends to go and strip off.

Yes, that’s right, it’s a nude beach, set amongst the backdrop of beautiful dunes and woodland with LOADS of convenient spots for cruising.


There’s a mixed crowd of locals and visitors from all over Europe (and the world) so you’ll have your pick of “friends” to make.


Getting to Praia 19 – It’s a bit of a schlepp, and while there are public transport links, the best way is to either hire a car and drive or just go on a beach tour. You can book onto a tour on for around €29 per person which includes round-trip transportation between central Lisbon and Beach 19, an English-speaking guide, a Gay Lisbon map and guide and even a beach towel to use during the day… which they hopefully wash THOROUGHLY!
