In the town of Lepe in Huelva (Spain), we find what for me is one of the best nudist beaches in Spain. It's about 30 kms from Huelva and 110 kms from Seville. Nueva Umbria is a peninsula of more than five miles long that lies between the mouth of Rio Piedras and the Atlantic Ocean. Part of a Natural Protected Area, "The Marshes of Rio Piedras", with great ecological value. It's easily accessible by car on a road just over a mile in pretty bad shape. The final access to the beach is via a wooden walkway.
The nudist area is at the left side. The atmosphere is a very family friendly environment. It is a huge, quiet beach where there are no crowds. There are no bars on the beach so it is necessary to bring food and drink. Another option is to walk right along the sea to the nearby beach of La Antilla (a textile beach), that is equipped with all kinds of bars and restaurants. The walk can be done in about thirty minutes.
DIRECTIONS: By car, if you are coming by motorway from Seville and Huelva, leave at exit 113.
Take Carretera 431 towards Lepe. Keep left at the intersection of Parque V Centenario on the road which runs alongside the Mall Lepe.
Continue for about 1 km and make a 90 degree turn onto the road of El Terron, after first making a U-turn maneuver at traffic light junctions. Continue along the road called "La Carretera de El Terrón" for about 5 km until you reach the fishing village of Casas del Terron.
Turn left on to a bumpy asphalt road leading to Nuevo Umbria running for about 2 km through the marshes of the Rio Piedras. Park at the end of the road and walk to Nueva Umbria nudist beach using the wooden walkway.
