Souda beach no longer naturist
« on: June 23, 2019, 10:35:11 AM »
The rozzers have just been and walked down the full length of Souda beach and told everyone to put  their swimwear on (womens tops included) as nudism is illegal, and they have had complaints. I asked if it was still OK at the far end of Plakias and was told it is illegal everywhere and they would take action if there where any complaints

Hopefully this is not the end of the far end?

I don‘t remember Souda as clothing optional. Is Microamoudi also lost for the Naturists?

Souda beach is allowed, except in august when the Greeks are on holiday. The guy that rents the chairs told us 2 years ago.
they are probbably already warning before the Greek family's are comming.
We seen the same in the last 2 years. Greeks claiming "their" beaches.
We went to far end and Ammoudaki in august and keep Souda beach for before and after season.
You also see more clothed people on Ammoudaki in august, mostly Greek.

Plakias far end still same as ever 3 weeks ago when we left, maybe a few less sunbeds and brollies as the beach was eroding away and covering the rocks again

To answer my own question. Souda IS definitely naturist. Spent 5 hours there today. In fact there we probs more naked people than clothed.

Ok, the latest news on the Souda and Plakias beach situation is as follows. We went to Souda today (home tomorrow) and spoke to the sun bed guy. I mentioned the June Police raid and he said that following that there were heated discussions with the Police and the upshot is that Souda and Plakias are now OFFICIALLY NUDIST. It seems that the authorities were persuaded by the fact that if the Police lent on the nudists (so to speak) then they would all go elsewhere and that (on his estimate) would remove 30% of the occupants from Souda and Plakias. Over the course of a season that must amount to several thousand people and several million euro to the local economy. btw I hate being classified as a 'nudist' I just don't see the need for clothes on a beach and why anyone would want to swim with trunks on is totally beyond me.

I'm not really a nudist, clothes-off type or whatever name it goes by, but keep thinking that I must try one year. The 'kit optional' beaches haven't ever offended/bothered me, can't see what the fuss is about really. Everyone turned a blind eye for years and all was well. Still, good to hear that it's official now.
