Nudist tourists will be able to work on their full-body tan on the sun-kissed Turkish coast from next week, when the mainly Muslim country opens its first naturist hotel, a report said Sunday. Open exclusively to foreigners, the beachfront nudist-only hotel opens on May 1 near the major southwestern resort of Marmaris, a small revolution in Turkey´s conservative society, Milliyet newspaper reported. "Nudism is allowed inside the hotel premises, but not on the nearby public beaches," Ahmet Cosar, bookings manager at the Adaburnu-Golmar hotel, told the newspaper. For guests who are determined to shun bathing suits, the hotel will provide a shuttle bus to and from a private naturist beach.

Only for tourists? No Turkish nudists allowed? Why?

 hehe could do I´m up for each to their own and all that, but I like to keep a bit of myself as a surprise.

 

Not sure I get why it has a need to be there though if it is only for tourists. If people travel all the way there to just stay in the hotel seems a bit of a waste. opp I forgot they can get the bus to the nudist beach

Only in Turkey can you get nude beaches and very conservative Islamic dress code style beaches!  {#emotions_dlg.lol_fast}

 I wish I could tell you differently, but I think you have to be a nudist/naturalist to understand that it isn´t about sex.  I myself can only think of it as a bunch of sex crazed people, orgies and drunken madness.  But I am a Catholic...we think you´re a sex crazed maniac looking for a drunken orgie if you are wearing a short skirt!{#emotions_dlg.lol_fast}

Once you´ve seen an 80 year old nudist playing beach voleyball you know it´s not about sex {#emotions_dlg.puking}

I think it has something to do with the feeling of freedom, and being natural. I feel more comfortable in jeans though.

Hmmmm... interesting.. {#emotions_dlg.noway} I wonder how they check for naturalists at the entrance..

Interesting how Catholics don´t have much faith in other Catholics..
