Medio Almud Beach: Local South Gran Canaria Nudist Spot

Medio Almud beach is a natural and nudist beach in south Gran Canaria that is rarely crowded. 

An Almud is a measure of land equivalent to half an acre so Medio Almud beach is called "Quarter Acre Beach". It's much bigger than that at about 60 metres long and 10 wide. Sheltered by a headland on both sides it's almost always calm with clear water and small waves. 

The beach itself is a mixture of coarse black sand and pebbles. People have built circular stone shelters on the sandiest bits and if you arrive early you'll get one. Otherwise, there's always a free patch of sand.

While Medio Almud is completely natural, developers put in a tarmac road down from the GC 500. Their idea was to develop the valley, but that isn't on the cards anymore. The road is blocked off to cars but makes the walk down easy. 

Medio Almud is popular with local nudists from all over Gran Canaria as it's easy to walk to but also rarely crowded. 

Medio Almud beach is between Puerto Rico and Puerto de Mogán and is easy to get to by bus or car. Driving from Puerto Rico, look out for the signpost just after the first tunnel after Tauro. 

Blue bus lines 31 and 33 stop at Medio Almud bus stop. To get to the beach, just walk five minutes down the road. Bring water and a rubbish bag as there are no facilities.
