“Often quiet-nice water and sand”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Its nice and if your up for the nudity go for it! Be warned-people may come and try to talk to you and give you their 'nudist' card-so if your shy bring a towel to cover up when they wonder by. Over all its a nice place and big enough that you can have some space. The water isnt too rough and its nicely nestled in front of some clifts.

“One of the most scenically beautiful beaches in South Australia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

We spent a couple of hours at Maslin Beach yesterday. It is a beautifully clean, unspoilt, long beach which has not changed at all in the last 40 years. White sand, an aquamarine blue sea, fishermen casting rods from the shore, people walking, a wedding photo session in progress and large seagulls flying over the sand dunes. Total relaxation. There is a separate, signed section for "unclad" people at the very Southern end of the beach.

“Great Beach !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Great beach, both with clothes on or off - probably Adelaide's best ! Spent many years coming here when I was young but still go here every now and then.

“Not just Australia's first official Nudist Beach.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

There are 2 car parks, the southern car park is the best! Walk to the breakwater and you have the best spot for Mullet around March/April filling your bag limit within an a couple of hours, Walking South into the nudist part is a great sandy beach to catch Bungem worms! These are hard to collect if you are a novice. Once you have the nack you could make a part time living out of them. (Mind you, you need a licence if you sell to a fishing shop.) Walk down to the far Southern end of the Bay and search the soft cliffs (Be careful) Do not climb as very crumbly, but look hard and you could find fossilised shells.
