My wife and I were really looking forward to visiting Vera playa but on arrival found the beach not to to be the cleanest in the area and sadly visited by lone males who just walk up and down staring or stand alone playing with their private parts! If you want to experience naturism join a club where members can be vetted . I suggest you be very careful going to places that are open to public access especially those with mobile phones in their hands who may be secretly taking photos of you ?

We just returned from a week in VERA PLAYA , and this is an honest review of our experience . We stayed on the Bahia De Vera complex and visited the beach that has good reviews on here, and we also ate out a fair bit.

I cannot say enough how poor the beach is , maybe it's enough to say we only spent a couple of hours on it, There is a long walk along it that is well paved and wheelchair friendly along beach front and we walked down as far as the tennis club, and its on this walk you can really see what poor shape the beach is in, it's dirty and and not kept well ,

the business on the beach , I'm sure at some stage where beach bars or restaurants looked closed down, and if they are not closed down i sure would not eat or drink at them,

the more you walk down it gets worse there is a steady stream of water running down onto the beach on this walk and I'm not sure where its coming from.

there are some nice beach bars on the side of the walkway not on the beach, but the view from them is not onto golden sand that's for sure, on the other end there is the well talked about pirates bar sounded by over grown grass verges from the apartments behind them and what looks like builders materials ie slaps blocks etc which doesn't improve as you walk a bit longer along beach,

the pirates bar itself, could do with a real face lift the decking had paint peeling of it and really looks shabby, we stayed for a couple of beers and left, and if it wasn't for the fact of having a few beers naked on the beach we wouldn't have even bothered.

About the complex in which we styed, our apartment was very clean I wont mention their name here Ill review them on their personal website, but it was in the Bahia De Vera , which is actually a 5 minute walk to the beach, the grounds themselves where spotless and very well kept.

The outdoor pool is lovely good size and was clean and you do feel comfortable relaxing there , you can only access the outdoor pool and indoor pool from 7am to 11pm.

The indoor pool is indeed warm and is an ok size, but there are a couple of things I did not like about the indoor pool, firstly first time naturists might feel a bit awkward due to the fact that you must shower before entering pool which of course is only correct , but if your a first timer you have to walk maybe 30 feet to the showers and the showers themselves are in a U shape which faces the pool area, in my opinion they should be facing away from the actual pool , just a small thing of course.

But my main annoyance of the pool was one morning it was raining and i went for a swim and when you look up at roof you can see that the bars are very rusted and they drip into the pool now I'm unsure if the roof is leaking or just the condensation from the heat either way it drips back into the pool , just paint the rusty bars please. best time if you want to be alone in pool is early morning , had the pool to myself most mornings .

As i said we ate out a bit, best food we had and friendliest staff was at Le petit Gourmet lovely food and good prices you could eat a different meal each night and be happy .

You can also get a nice take away pizza just beside Le Petit others that we tried where disappointing.

The supermarket is well stocked and very reasonable, but its closed on Sundays so stock up if you need water or other items before

There's also a friendly bar but ive forgotten its name its right across form the Bahia De Vera entrance , its the first bar you will pass as you leave complex , nice beer nice staff and lovely coffee .

sorry this in long winded overall it was a nice stay , but we won't be returning based on the state of the beach

Being a naturist couple for many years..booked this break June last year privately online.
It's a fantastic location and resort for seasoned naturist and those wanting to try with no pressure. The beach area is fantastic, a mostly sandy beach stretching for a mile,with loads of options on the beach or off to eat,drink at the many friendly bars naked...special mention to the "Pirate Bar" right on the beach is definitely well worth a visit or two..good cheap drinks ,food,music,and great for people watching...during our visit the beach was never over crowded with a mix of all nationalities. Also benefits with showers and toilets...def a plus for a naturist beach.
The urbanization apartments behind the beach are mostly available to rent at all star levels..all private,securewith great facilities, outdoor,indoor pools ,gardens,sunbeds,etc...visit website veraplayafriends.com for map..
Also from most accommodations you are able to walk the streets naked to the beach...its great!!
At the north end of the beach is the Natura Club Hotel..a naturist hotel with a great selection of restaurants and nightlife.
A fantastic location for a natural break.
Four stars is for the sea can be a bit rough due wind and murky.

Have been to this beach many times, both on own and with partners.
The nudist area sometimes mixes into the clothed area, but never seems to be a problem.
Obviously very busy in summer but never feels too crowded. Have never used the bars or stayed at the resort. Always drive down (never had a problem parking). Pull up, strip off and walk from car to beach if you want to be naked from moment u arrive. You can also walk round the resort area naked if you desire.

Had a quick trip to local area and went for a run early morning. Very chilly but not a soul there; can highly recommend jogging there this time of year (clothed or naked - I did both!) Without seeing anyone bat a couple of dog walkers.

Went there a few times first before I bought a villa in a nudist compound. Fabulous place. Long white sandy beach, and basically there comes no end to the nudist beach as there are no signs where it starts or where it begins. Of course, at some point there is plenty of textile, but they don't seem to care that there is a naked man walking among them (and vice versa, we don't care if they walk on "our" beach). It's a free for all and legal in Spain. In addition, walking naked through the small town, go shopping, all naked. Restaurants and bars on the beach, just stay naked. Police in cars, public buses : no problem. Nudity as it should be.Towards the southern "end" of the nudist section it is very gay, some cruising at night. Safe. Lots of free parking space by the beach. Not to be missed !

we stayed at hotel zimbali, which is right on the beach, we stayed in October so the beach bars have or where shutting down for the winter, so go after may and before October if that's what you want, apart from a small section of restaurants and a few bars/china shop, large supermarket that's it but we liked it, its flat so you can just walk, the hotel had all you need, but we would visit in summer, also there's a small aqua park, and a barbecue area in some trees which we liked, we also think its ok for disabled who have wheelchairs as it quite flat.

We were staying at Hotel Zimbali and the beach was just outside. It was a very long clean beach with many bars and restaurants. In July sea was calm and many people were swimming. There was also water sports facility. However we could not spot any public toilet. One had go to any beach restaurants to use the facility.

This is a super beach if you like lots of space. Every so often there are chiringuitos for refreshments and some sunbeds, but most of the local took their own beds and umbrellas. The sea was rough while we were there, and the entry to the water was stony.

The backup sewage — laden with bacteria and other disease-producing pathogens - has been diverted into the sea by way of a machine-made ditch allowing the sewage to run into the sea next to the highly-populated Vera Playa naturist resort area, one hour from the city of Almaria. Higly populated area with swimmers and sun bathers and children playing in the sand. There is NO warning of what is being emptied into the sea. Someone reported their child becoming ill while playing in the area. The stench is of fecal material. What is going on with health regulations? An answer, please, for the residents and visitors of Vera Playa.
