This beach is tucked away on the back side of Nelsons bay near 1 mile beach. It is the only clothing optional beach in the region and thus if your offended by nudity do not go. It is pretty secluded only accessed by a 4WD...More

Though the beach is fantastic, its the amount of people wandering nude, very embarrassing going with a family with little kids.

Beautiful beach with 4wd entry. Saw 2 cars bogged. Drop your tyre pressure to 16-18 and take care. Very soft sand when we visited but lovely beach. Nudists around but big beach to enjoy your own space.

Good beach to visit but you will need a 4WD to avoid a long walk from the main road. No facilities whatsoever so necessary to take sunshade, food, water, sunscreen etc for a day's outing. Don't believe all the stories about 'dirty old men' and...More
