Unofficial Nudist Beach In St. Petersburg Might Be Closed

Unofficial nudist beach in St. Petersburg, located in a short distance from the "Dune" resort is planned to be landscaped and freed of nudists, the press service of the Kurortny District administration reported on Wednesday.

      "Now we are doing everything possible to perform the area inventory and include it into the registry of the official city beaches. It will be a landscaped, protected area. There won’t be any nudists. In crowded places there are certain rules that have to be obeyed," the agency interlocutor said.

      In this case, the St. Petersburg nudists will be offered an alternative holiday destination, away from the popular beaches. "For sure, they will be offered something. For example, the lakes at the district border, where families with children do not come," the press service said. Nudist beach is located on the shore of the Gulf of Finland, about 30 km away from the city center in the resort area of the Karelian Isthmus. The special feature of this place is the cleanliness of the sand. In 2008 the beach was included in the prestigious American catalogue "The World's Best Nude Beaches and Resorts. The top 1,000 places to get naked." The beach appeared in St. Petersburg in the early 1960s. In 1992 it was granted the official status.

      "The Dunes" ("Dyuny", in Russian) naturist beach popular in St. Petersburg is located at the coast of the Baltic Sea at a distance of about 30 km (20 miles) from the city centre, by side of "The Dunes" Health Resort ("Sanatory Dyuny", in Russian), and not far from the famous "Sestroretsky Kurort" Health Resort at the Northern coast of the Gulf of Finland near the town of Sestroretsk. During the winter and spring of 2013, massive works were undertaken to restore and pave the near-mouth stretch of The Malaya Sestra river barred by the sea sand in an immediate vicinity of the beach. The beach contours have changed substantially as a result, and the verdure was partly wrecked. Still the beach is well alive, although within an altered landscape, and is full of naturism adepts on hot sunny days. Thousands of people assemble on "The Dunes" naturist beach during the high season. The general atmosphere is relaxed and friendly.  Beside of the usual beach entertainments, such as playing volleyball, badminton, miniten, frisbee, etc., there is a lot of socializing at the beach in high season: various fun competitions, body art presentations, dancing nude, and so on.
