The Occidental Grand Fuerteventura is no more. The Hotel has
been taken over and is now the Hotel Club Magic Life Fuerteventura in
Playa de Esquinzo ...
we hear from AJ
that he "Noticed
the area when I went for a Sauna. The 'Downstairs' area Sauna/Steam
room, changing rooms, pool etc .is a naturist zone, Naturist
18+ signs up.and has had some extra
shading areas put up, compared to those old photos"
More Good News from Fred April 2014
"Spent a wonderful week here in early April. The naturist section is
fine with a good sized pool (but only for swimmers as it is 1.8m deep
right across) plus a smaller jacuzzi type pool. There is a sauna as
well. In fact two saunas: one for nudists and one for textile. Seems
strange arrangement as to get to the textile sauna, one would have to go
through naturist area. Around fifty loungers and a small area of lawn.
It was kept very clean and lifeguard was on duty. Apples, water and a
selection of paperbacks all available.
Although quite acceptable it felt a bit constrained there. I preferred
the freedom of the beach although it is a bit of a climb down from the
resort and back up. I started by taking my kit off in the acknowledged
naturist beach (just beyond the sailing club) then walking on from
there. One late afternoon when returning I just could not face putting
on shorts so I walked along the entire beach back to the resort steps,
naked. Everyone else was clothed but no apparent reaction from anyone.
They may have thought, "Look at the stupid old man with nothing on." But
I don't care, I felt great. "
There we are then a nice textile hotel with naturist facilities right
above a beach that is very naked .. A good place for the first timer
(like the Monte Marina Hotel) or reluctant partner to experience the
joys of naked swimming, sun bathing and still not be compelled to join
Extra Good News
a report from Al Dec 2016
I spent a week there in December 2016. The
sea water is just fine for bathing (warmer than our city pools).
I walked nude several times on the beach from
Morro Jable to Esquinzo an easy 90 mins walk (however you may need shoes
at high tide).
All along, there are no distinct textile / nude zones.
I met many nude persons walking along or
entering or exiting the sea, as well as textiles.
As Fred said (April 2014) there was no
reaction from anybody. I only avoided to pass in front of or behind
peoples being shoot on pictures.
I include a picture of the beach (December
