Its Tapas Time

My family members and friends have nicknamed me El Greedo. Theres something about these little tasty bites that may tempt me to spend more than if I’d gone for a full blown meal. has been an incredibly active time for the resorts in the Canaries. Of course mainland Europe can be a bit chilly for dropping our clothes in the wintertime. Although I’ve had reports of some odd bright days in Spain should you get in a sheltered area the weather is not ensured till later on in spring.
Additionally, the Skinny Dippers resort on Majorca is bringing many repeat customers run by Grant and Jordi.
I’ve just got back from a “Busmans Naturist Holiday” seeing our Fuerteventura and Lanzarote resorts. Arriving on the island of Fuerteventura we picked up the hire car and headed south to the large naturist resort of Monte Marina as well as the Hotel Marina Playa. After saying our hellos to Susanne Duffner and her mother and father who own this glorious place it was off to the fantastic cliff top restaurant for our late evening meal. We remained in the hotel rooms this time which had astonishing sea views over the Playa Esquinzo beach. Breakfast the next morning was taken again on the restaurant terrace with the lovely ocean view and beach below.

Our next port of call was the tranquil El Cotillo fishing hamlet on the north west coast. This hamlet is well-known for the amazing blue water lagoons and white sand beaches. We were staying in the Cotillo Sunset flats that are right on one of the lagoon beaches and are blessed not only with a swimming pool but in addition a hot tub although for fabric use only. The sunsets from the ocean facing apartment patios are amazing .Opposite this complex is the La Concha beach and lagoon where the superb beach bar/eatery does a roaring trade. This beach tends to be a combination of naturist and cloths but merely a little further north towards the lighthouse the next lagoon will be entirely naturist and when we were there I suppose there must have been at least 50 naked couples and families.
Charco is a village of approximately 500 properties that range from studios on complexes with pools to luxurious private villas. One villa I visited had a elevator inside that went through a fantastic circular library from the ground floor indoor pool to the living accommodation on the upper floors. Other villas such as Villa Stropek and also the two Casa Rondas are available for rent and have a committed client base who publication year upon year. The ocean front apartments and bungalows at Charco are always in great demand. Sitting on can often see dolphins leaping out of the water.
Our next stop off was the fabulous Famara beach where the wild seas in many cases are crowded with surfers and kite surfers. Its nice to be naked on the beach and have something interesting to watch while capturing the rays. Famara has some really good seafood restaurants and bars overlooking the sea. El Risco eatery which seems a little dodgy is named after the 2000 foot mountain range just behind the seashore. The food is anything but dangerous and is freshly caught that day. and bungalows have independent terraces which are private enough for sunbathing.
