THE number of Spanish tourists visiting the Almanat nudist campsite in Velez-Malaga has increased over the past few years.
The campsite, which is located in Almayate, was traditionally popular with foreign visitors, but the manager, Juan Antonio Diaz, reports that Spanish tourists are no longer a minority.
This summer, an assembly of naturist associations from Andalucia was held at the campsite, all of whom are potential clients.
Some 80 per cent of visitors at the campsite during the summer are Spanish, mainly from Andalucia, Madrid, Valencia and the Basque Country, as well as French and Portuguese. However, during the low season, from October to May, they mainly receive German, Dutch and British campers.
The average visitor is around 50 years old, although the manager reports that often three generations of the same family visit together. Most families stay between 10 and 15 days, but on occasions up to one month.
However, like any other establishment, they have seen the effects of the financial crisis and there are people who only visit for the weekend, or less than five nights.
