Its Tapas Time
My family members and friends have nicknamed me El Greedo. I cant help it that when I'm in Spain or the Canaries I cant resist just trying out the local tapas bars even between meals. Theres something about these little savory bites that could tempt me to spend more than if I'd gone for a full blown meal.
This winter has been an extremely active time for the resorts in the Canaries. Of course mainland Europe can be a bit cold for losing our clothing in the winter. Although blondes on a beach 've had reports of some unusual bright days in Spain if you get in a sheltered area the weather is not ensured till later on in springtime.
Additionally, the Skinny Dippers resort on Majorca is bringing many repeat customers run by Grant and Jordi.
naturism 've just got back from a "Busmans Naturist Holiday" visiting our Fuerteventura and Lanzarote resorts. Arriving on the island of Fuerteventura we picked up the hire car and headed south to the great naturist resort of Monte Marina along with the Hotel Marina Playa. After saying our hellos to Susanne Duffner and her mom and father who possess this glorious place it was off to the wonderful cliff top restaurant for our late evening meal. We remained in the hotel rooms this time which had amazing sea views over the Playa Esquinzo beach. Breakfast the next morning was taken again on the restaurant terrace with the beautiful ocean view and beach below.
Our next port of call was the tranquil El Cotillo fishing village on the north west shore. This village is famous for the amazing blue water lagoons and white sand beaches. We were staying in the Cotillo Sunset flats that are right on one of the lagoon shores and are blessed not only with a swimming pool but in addition a hot tub although for cloth use only. The sundown from the ocean facing apartment patios are amazing .Opposite this complex is the La Concha beach and lagoon where the outstanding beach bar/eatery does a roaring trade. This beach will be a combination of naturist and cloths but just a little further north towards the lighthouse the next lagoon tends to be fully naturist and when we were there I suppose there must have been at least 50 nude couples and families.
We set off for Corralejo which is about a twenty minute drive from Cotillo to go to the "Gallery" which is a much sort after property for  naturist wanting a private villa with pool yet only several metres from the clothes optional "Flag Beach". Charco is a village of approximately 500 properties that range from studios on complexes with pools to luxurious private villas. One villa I visited had a elevator inside that travelled via an incredible circular library from the ground floor indoor pool to the living accommodation on the upper floors. Other villas such as Villa Stropek and the two Casa Rondas are available for rent and have a committed client base who publication year upon year. The ocean front flats and bungalows at Charco are always in great demand. Sitting on the terrace you can frequently see dolphins leaping out of the water.
Our next stop off was the fabulous Famara beach where the wild seas are often packed with surfers and kite surfers. Its fine to be nude on the beach and have something fascinating to watch while catching the beams. Famara has some very good seafood restaurants and bars overlooking the sea. El Risco restaurant which sounds a little dodgy is named after the 2000 foot mountain range just behind the seashore. The food is anything but risky and is freshly caught that day.
The villas and bungalows have separate patios which are private enough for sunbathing.
After a visit to the Papagayo beaches it was time to catch the ferry back to Fuerteventura and back to the Rosario airport for our flight home.
