Nudist Beach Protest
Nudist’s are angry about an apartment block that has sprung up behind their strip of Costa Blanca beach, claiming it will subject them to voyeurs and peeping Toms.
The women’s group Aquarela, who organised a naked protest bathe last week, say they used to enjoy the seclusion offered by trees on the L’Almadrava beach in Denia.
But now a concrete block of five floors with 68 apartments has stripped the nudists of privacy.
The nudists say L’Almadrava has long been neglected due to its thick sand and seagrass.
The women not only demonstrated against the invasion of onlookers, but also the degradation of natural environments in general.
A post shared through social media inviting guests to the ‘women’s naturist’ bathe said the protest was in support of an ‘ocean free of plastic’ and a ‘coast without touristic exploitation’.
The apartment block is set to be finished this summer.
