Nudists and their rival clothed tourists put aside their dressing differences to help a dolphin in distress at a Formentera beach.
Eyewitness Sebastian Lakwa (28) reported: "A nudist helped the animal first. He got two pots of water and dumped them over the crying animal." With the help of others on the beach, the dolphin made it safely back to the water.
The show of unity between clothed and naked beach-goers was a landmark after the nudist war on Usedom beach, where naked German sunbathers and conservative Poles clashed over the summer.
Located on the German-Polish border, the beach hit the headlines when Polish holiday-makers expressed their outrage about the nude Germans’ free-spirited display. Most recently, a ceasefire was called between the two sides.
