As you may have picked up here and there, I’ve been on vacation. It was a veritable nakation, a vacation as naked as possible. Where?
In a small town called Charco del Palo on Lanzarote, one of the Canary Islands. (It’s on the right at the top in this map.)
Charco del Palo is about 25 minutes driving north of Arrecife, the capital of the island. It’s gorgeous.
I had booked an apartment at Casa del Sol Siempre, which is run by a Belgian lady and her team. No worries, all languages are supported. It’s a beautiful place to spend time, and they haven’t seen the last of me there.
The views are stunning, the apartments are clean and very well furnished. If the staff there can do anything to help you or make your stay more fun, they will jump through a burning hoop to make it happen. I strongly recommend Casa del Sol Siempre (which mean ‘House of eternal sun’, by the way.)
From the apartment complex you can walk onto the rocky coastline immediately, and walk for miles to either side if you want. And all of that undressed, because Spanish beaches are all clothing optional unless marked differently.
Make sure you wear something decent on your feet when you take a hike there. The rocks are many and most of them are very sharp; they will go through your thin slippers like a sharp knife through warm butter. And your feet will be the butter. Be warned.
Here is a video that I made during a few of my walks along the coastline, to give you an impression of this amazing place:
Next week I’ll try to post some more about my vacation.

Oh i am so stealing that!!
Good! Good! Spread the word, make it known!
maybe a slight edit: Naykation how does that look?
Hmm. Nakation is kind of general use. Also, ‘nay’ is ‘no’ in old English (yay and nay are used in British parliament when voting is done on laws and such). No a naykation might be no-vacation!
Oops! How about nakeyation? Haha nah nakation is prolly the best.
