Naked Qigong on the beach

On Sunday 21 June 2020 Ireland was still under covid19-related local travel restrictions, so our annual summer solstice celebration had to be limited to a small group of local naturists.

Women can’t seem to find their way into this naturalness as easily as our male counterparts do. British Naturism reports a 30% female representation amongst its membership, and that figure goes down to 22% in Ireland. […]

There are numerous secluded coves with beautiful clean sand and pristine waters for any regular naturist, or even first time naturist, to enjoy. These beauty spots are picture perfect places and allow for skinny dipping […]
