Vera Playa is a naturist village on the Costa Almeria in Andalusia Spain. It is the perfect all-year-round get away boasting over 320 days of sunshine per year with the lowest levels of rainfall in Europe.
In 2013 the Guinness World Record for the largest ever skinny dip was achieved at Vera Playa, with 729 naturists entering the sea.
The summer sees scorching temperatures of 28 to 30 degrees with 12 hours of sunshine per day and rarely any rainfall. During the autumn months September (av. 28 degrees) to November (av. 19 degrees) it is a great place to get away as the colder temperatures set in throughout northern Europe. Winter temperatures reach a minimum average of 14 degrees, and although wetter during this time, rainfall is comparably low throughout December, January and February until the spring season (March to May) that sees the return of long hours of sunshine, perfect for an early Easter get away to start working on your tan.
Vera Playa has long stretches of beautiful naturist beach and a perfectly relaxed atmosphere. Within this naturist village, you will find the usual amenities you would find on other resorts, including supermarkets, restaurants and bars.
