Along the Portuguese coast there are numerous beaches where naturism is practiced. In addition to the official naturist beaches
there are others which, due to their isolation and difficult access, provide to lovers of naturism with places suitable for the practice
of nudity in a perfect communion with the various natural elements, like the Sun, Water, Breeze and Sand.
These beaches, which we call “tolerated” or nowadays “usual and customary beaches”, allow, the practice of naturism with a reasonable “security level,”
unless some “textile” considered offensive to his way of life and decides to call the marine police, a
situation that, thankfully , has not usually occurred.
Among these beaches, some already have an “unofficial clothing optional beaches status”, derived from a consistent and continued practice, known and repeatedly been
“tacitly accepted” by the authorities.
