Zante Naturist Beach -


http://www.freewebs.com/gerakas-beach-fkk/index.htm


Can anyone tell me more about this beach, I hear its one of only two beaches on the island where peole can go nude.

I understand a new naturist hotel has recently opened close by called The Panorama. Has anyone been to it and if so what is it like ?

Thanks

Sonic

The beach isn't a naturist beach it's just a beach where a blind eye is turned. It is a beach for everybody so the naturists tend to stick to one far end but being one of the nicer beaches on the island it is very popular and well used so don't expect privacy and like minded people to be surronding you.  ;)

The Panorama hotel is about 2 3 Km from Gerakas on the Porto Roma Road, about half way down the hill on the left.  We stayed there in 2003 and the hotel goes back to the 1990s when it was built.  Back when we stayed there it was a family hotel run by a local family.  On Google Earth or Google Maps you can see its location by pasting these co-ordinates - 37 42.958'N 20 59.141'E.
As Sonic said, the naturist tend to go to the far end of the beach near the mud cliffs.

They do...so this means the info in the link in the original post...

"To access the naturist section simply walk down the slope and turn right and head for the far end of the beach..."

...is slightly wrong. You need to turn left when you reach the beach (unless you walk down backwards).

It's a beautiful spot...a bit busy for my taste in peak season but brilliant later (or earlier) in the year. Not sure if it's my imagination but seems to have its own microclimate....always feels a few degrees hotter than anywhere else.
