II Naturist Encounter of Asturias , by Manu (Member of ANAPA)
This summer, ANAPA and ADN organized between the 25th and 27th of June, the II Naturist Encounter of Asturias, at the “Playa de Otur” Campsite, next to the beach of the same name located in the West of Asturias.

It was the first time that I had decided to contact a naturist group and I planned to do so by taking part in a naturist activity like this.

I have to say that I enjoyed myself enormously, because it was very pleasant and the group was very welcoming. Of course NATURAL like life itself.

On the campsite, in spite of it not being “naturist” we were received and treated with a great deal of courtesy and kindness. It is a small campsite, of some 330 places with an abundant grove that makes it encircling and welcoming. The owner told us that she was a naturists, she reserved us a somewhat remote area, so that we felt comfortable, near to the toilets, surprisingly we only used the one that had the symbol for "gentleman" which is the one that was closer at hand.

The first day was splendid, and after settling in, we went to Otur beach to enjoy the sun and the sea breeze of the Cantabrian, and naturally, its temperate waters. Like this we disconnected at once from the bustle of the city and we forgot the time. We met for dinner at a hotel near the campsite, where they told us that there was a typical Asturian Local festivity in a nearby town. Without hesitating for a moment we all went there. It was a perfect end to the day with Asturian cider, dance and fun .

The following day, Saturday, we went to visit the famous “Playa de Barayo”, pioneer in naturism in Asturias. The road that we took to arrive there, after leaving the cars in the car park in the village of Vigo (Asturias), since you cannot arrive to the beach by car, as it is a protected natural place, without a doubt it was worthwhile. The road took us along a place of extraordinary natural beauty, with leafy vegetation, high grass, skirting the River Barayo that flows onto the beach making a meander, which made us fuse our body and thoughts with the exuberant nature that we contemplated. We enjoyed the splendid beach that was to be found at low tide. We shared the food in comradeship, and after a nap, it was time for the body painting session that we had all been waiting for. Live art and fantasy to which several strangers who were near us joined in, with the star participation of an Australian girl “Nina”, with a lot of imagination.
At night a visit and dinner in the typical Asturian fishing village of Luarca, where we tasted the rich Asturian gastronomy washed down with natural cider (or was it naturist?).

On Sunday (last day of the encounter) dawn broke a little cloudy, but even so we went to visit the Playón de Vayas, the most extensive beach in Asturias, and we enjoyed the marine spectacle. On seeing this beach and knowing that on the following Tuesday there would be a Caribbean party on the same beach, many of the participants in the encounter stayed in Asturias to take part in it. Indeed the weather improved and on Tuesday we were able to return to this large beach to enjoy the bathing and the sun, and of course the Caribbean party, with meringue music and drinking Dominican Republic rum, that Christi livened up (the Dominican Republic’s signing in ANAPA) taking us to dance and teaching the basic steps to those who didn't know and delighting us with her charm. As was to be expected on this occasion curious people came closer to take part in the party, who were welcome and I believe that they are all thinking of becoming members like I did.

In short, some wonderful days, in natural, simple, cheerful and kind people's company, which is always enjoyable, and a sensation of freedom, of expansion, of companionship and of disconnection from the daily bustle for which I encourage and invite all naturists to take part in the next encounters.
