Visitor review:

“A walk along the coast from the cap park brings you to Cape Towns nudest beach in South Africa, Sandy Bay Beach. Known for natural beauty and naturalism. Protected from the wind and enclosed with sand dunes it makes for a good place to escape the crowds, and no you don’t have to be naked to enjoy it, its just an option. The beach is generally known to be gay friendly. A word of warning, wander off into the bushes can be dangerous.”

Sandy Bay Beach is popular gay cruising spot. Most of the cruising takes place at the far side of the beach.

Going Naked in South Africa is not for the Feint Hearted

Amenities: There are no shops and no public toilets.

Crime: Please be warned there have been some quite violent crimes in the area over the years it’s a good idea to go at peak times and always visit as part of a group.  Peeping Toms can be a bit of a nuisence with cameras quite openly used.  Off the popular path you will stumble upon undesireables with binoculars spying on visitors.  This is not a beach for the passive naturist!
