It is indeed correct to say that naturists are put off of the Algarve due to the lack of openess to naturism such as that shown by e.g. Spain etc (see Algarve Resident, August 21 edition).
With such wonderful beaches and so many of them, there is a real opportunity to embrace naturism without compromising any other tourism. The sooner positive action is taken the sooner will many more tourists – not just died-in-the-wool naturists – regard the Algarve as “their” destination.
