Naturist Beaches

We are in St Austell in a few weeks time and we have been naturists for years. We have not been to the West country for a long time and wonder if there are any official, or indeed unofficial naturist beaches in the vicinity

There used to be one at Polgavor near St Austell which is part of Carlyon Bay beach. However this is now a development site and has been in a state of semi dereliction for a few years now. The beaches are still there of course but whether you would want to go there and take a look is up to you. It was at the far end of Carlyon Bay beach.

I'm not aware of any official naturist beaches in Cornwall. I'm sure you would be able to find if you use any naturist web sites.

If the weather is the same as it is now you will probably want to keep your clothes on!

A good point, although where we are at the moment it is very hot and humid

Thanks for your help and advice everyone. We had a wonderful holiday in Devon and Cornwall, the weather was brilliant, the people were lovely, and the scenery out of this world.

I said to someone, its like going abroad without the hassle of the airport

We found a couple of naturist beaches and they were lovely.

Great holiday
