“Once the nudist beach”
Reviewed March 15, 2012

This was a famous nudist beach off the beaten track in the 1980's but not worth a visit especially if you have kids with you do to unsavoury characters. Go to Camps Bay beach instead

“OUR ONE AND ONLY!”
Reviewed March 7, 2012

naked beach. It's a one off experience if you dare risk it! Renown as being a "gay" beach and the walk from the parking lot (fully attired) can still be a little hazardous, depending on who is lurking around!
