I have never been to a nudist beach before. I am always curious as to why and how people flaunt themselves naked in public beaches. Hence, visiting a nudist beach has always been part of my bucket list.
As I listed down the places I want to visit in Cape Town, I find that almost all attractions are interesting. However, one in particular stands out from my list: Sandy Beach, Cape Town’s one and only nudist beach.
Situated along a secluded bay past Llandudno Beach along the road between Cape Town to Cape Point, Sandy Beach is a quiet and tranquil setting allowing naturists to have their own privacy whilst enjoying the untouched natural coastline.
In order to get to Sandy Bay, you have to walk about 15-20 minutes from the parking lot in Llandudno. When you find the “No Nudism along this path” sign, you are on the right track.
The beach is enclosed by sand dunes, high rocky mountains, big boulders and bushy slopes. You can stay either at the cove of boulders or move on to the main beach and enjoy the stretch of white sand.
There are no shops or vendors around, only naked people (mostly men!) wandering around the cove boulders. (I opted not to show them here though!)
Aside from its attraction to naturists, the area is also a nature reserve popular with hikers and conservationists.
The private mansion lying on a low cliff-top overlooking the wide Sandy Beach intrigues me. I wonder if the owner uses a binocular to watch naturists sunbathing naked by the beach. Hmmm…
For those of you who want a quiet and secluded nudist beach, Sandy Beach is the place to go in Cape Town!
Swimming naked in an African Beach is definitely a surreal experience!
