Why this should be astonishing information to any of you needs us to take a little detour and discuss the perspectives about bare, nudity and naturism in Egypt. Egypt is an Islamic state and by law, nudity is prohibited. More to the point, people have a callous mindset when it comes to nudity in general: if it is nude, then it is sexual, unless it is in the toilet. As simple as that. Besides nudity in the shower, most individuals believe that nudity has a sexual element to it, and hence it’s a taboo. Officially, there are not any bare beaches in Egypt, and nudity in public is banned – and punishable – by regulations. On the other hand, Egypt is a country that chiefly depends in its national income on tourism. And the authorities are striving to appeal to all types of tourists, and part of them are people who want to soak stark naked in the hot Egypt sun. So it is not a surprise that toplessness is taken – not formally allowed, but stood, in many resorts. But the idea of a appropriate local naked beach sounded a bit far-fetched, to me at least.

Naturism In Egypt
That said, the question should now be why someone from Egypt would be interested in a naked beach, let alone naturism in the first place? Yes, you read that right: I am Egyptian. Yes, I will be a Muslim. And yes, I also like to call myself a nudist. http://x-nudists.com/index.php/2016/04/27/stripped-to-the-skin-this-provoker-bill-was-the-one-to-wear-swimming-trunks/ got introduced to the lifestyle when I was 12 or 13, after coming across a documentary about naturism on television. It wasn’t until a few years after that I got http://nudismphotos.net/posts/my-girlfriend-does-the-same-and-does-never-wear-panties-either/ to learn more about the lifestyle when I first started using the Internet, and I Have been calling myself a naturist ever since. But my practice of naturism continues to be mostly restricted to, well, my room. As it pertains to outside experiences, I settled to late night skinny dips every now and after that.
Fast forward to today, my wife and I were discussing taking a few days off work and going someplace to spend the last few days of the summer, and Hurghada came up on the list. My wife is not exactly the largest proponent of naturism: at some point she was intrigued, may be interested, but that interest never really materialized. Yet, she knows I am deeply devoted to the lifestyle, and she doesn’t mind it. I ran the idea by my wife and got the green light – it was convenient to have the option, and in case it doesn’t turn out to be what we’d in mind, we’ll just keep our kits on – can not be any worse than that.

An hour’s flight from Cairo and we arrived at Hurghada, mid day. I would love to say that I had packed nothing but an array of footwear and shaving kit, but this is not a nudist resort, just a resort with a naturist beach choice, so we ended up packing some heavy bag for merely a mere two days of holiday. I even packed my swimming trunks, just in case, as I didn’t know what to expect (they did prove useless in the end, after all). Shortly, we arrived to the resort and checked into our room. We quickly dropped our bags, altered into more appropriate dress and after a quick lunch, decided to go and search for the naked beach.
At the far left end of the main beach, we were soon greeted by a fenced area of the playa and a little, hardly noticeable ‘Dress As You Like’ indication. Needless to say, I didn’t expect the resort management to stick up a ‘Naked Beach’ signal. In reality, I will be glad they did not, as otherwise it would certainly brought the unwanted attention of curious strand goers. But it appears that those who know the resort and its strand setup readily get the hint anyway. As we made our way into the fenced place, we understood that no one else was there. We began to question if anyone does really use this part of the strand after all and, if this was really meant to be as a bare beach area in the first place. However, we determined to go bring beach towels and come back to the part and see how it’ll go. By the time we were back, our doubts were dispelled; another family had already set camp at the sand place, naturally, entirely naked.
The naked beach region is basically comprised of six plage huts laid down in a half circle arrangement. Each plage hut has its nutritional supplement of plage beds, as well as wind breaks for that little additional privacy. The beach huts are clustered together closely, and if you lay low enough inside your hut, it would be near impossible to tell if someone is sitting inside or not. In fact, as we stepped into one of the huts that we were going to take for ourselves, we were surprised to discover that there was another guy already in there, lying on his sun bed and hidden by us right until we’ve stepped in.
