Beaches and other natural areas[edit]

There are no beaches in South Africa where the right to bathe nude is protected. However, Sandy Bay and the Umhlanga Lagoon and Mpenjati beach are beaches where nudity is accepted and bathers are very unlikely to be prosecuted for simply being naked. Mpenjati beach has been approved as a naturist beach by the local town council in charge of the area.[5][6] The situation at the other beaches is less certain. Nudist beaches are by nature remote and secluded and it is unfortunate that in South Africa this makes them unsafe as criminals find them ideal for their purposes too. Nudists are advised to try to keep in big groups, singles and couples should exercise a great deal of caution if visiting the lesser known nudist beaches.

Eastern Cape[edit]

  • Secrets Beach [a] in Port Elizabeth
  • Lighthouse Beach, Great Fish River [b] between Port Alfred and East London, in 2003 there were plans to make this beach an official nudist beach; the plans never took off.[7][1]
  • The Striptease River Trail[c] at the Tsitsikamma Lodge and Spa. The trail is nudist friendly; the hotel, however, is a textile hotel.[8]
