“Superb beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Sydney have a lot of surprises and in these a lot of charming beaches. Lady Bay Beach is one of these. This beach is a "nude beach" and overall a gay beach, clean and "private". Go there is easy by boat from Circular gay (Watson bay wharf), short walk after. The area around is wonderful to visit and spend your time

“Pleasant Day Out on this Naturist Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2012

Lady Bay or Lady Jane Beach is a small cove which has a mixture of sand and rock, with friendly locals and many visitors (as we were).

Getting here is a pleasant journey in itself, using the ferry from Sydney to Watsons Bay and then a short strole along the headland to the Bay. Final access is via a set of very safe metal stairs.

Because of the position most of the waves are calm making it a good for a quick dip.

As with all naturist beaches make sure you have all necesities with you as the shops are a little way back, though the ice cream man does call during the day. Public loo close by.

On the way back make sure you leave time for Doyles excellent Fish and Chips. excellent.

“Nudist beach for skinny dippers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2009

Lady Bay, or sometimes Lady Jane Beach, is one of Sydney's popular legal nude beaches. It is situated on the south head entrance to Sydney Harbour in the suburb of Watson's Bay.

The beach is a short walk from Camp Cove a safe family beach which itself is a short walk from Watsons Bay Wharf. Watsons bay can be reached by ferry from No. 4 wharf at Circular Quay.

Both beaches are very pleasant, offering views up to the Harbour Bridge. The walk to the nudist beach passes old gun emplacements and a viewing platform of the harbour and the naked swimmers below makes the trip interesting. For those who are game the locals nudists are friendly and welcome visitors and first time skinny dippers
