Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Swanbourne Beach faces West, it's a great place to view the sunset over the Indian Ocean. The beach is not far from Perth city, it's near Claremont and Nedlands. The conditions are good, the attractive beach is patrolled by the Swanbourne Graylands Surf Life Saving Club. Swanbourne is one of the best-known nude beaches in Western Australia, where swimmers can express their natural bodies.

Took my partner to the nude beach for her first time. She loved it, felt very liberating for her.
Lots of stares as she’s extremely attractive but that’s cool, it was a confidence boost for her and that made me happy.
Didn’t see anyone pulling their pud to her or discreetly filming, but she swears some of the men would give themselves a half chub before walking past.
LOTS of lonesome men. But was nice to see a few couples and younger friends groups.
I left her to walk a million miles back to the car for more water as it was an almost 40oC day and she said no one bothered her.
We avoided sitting close to the dunes as I assumed if there are any creepers, that’s where they’d be.
The only gripe I have is that we need better access to the beach. Maybe a footpath closer to the nude section. But I guess that would encourage more creepers to come have a peep from the bushes.

Swanbourne Beach faces west, it's a great place to view the sunset. The beach is patrolled by the Swanbourne-Nedlands Surf Life Saving Club during the summer season, but the surf is rarely threatening. Swanbourne Beach is known as a nudist beach, you don't have to be young and beautiful, just take off your gear and jump in. By the way, the only people who aren't welome are the pervs who hide out in the sandhills.

Enjoyed a nice stroll on the beach after a filling breakfast. Quite big waves and plenty of small sea shells.

Swanbourne Beach has relatively gentle surf, which makes it good fo swimming, but notgood for surfing. During the high season, the beach is patrolled by the Swanbourne-Nedlands Surf Life Saving Club. The beach is west-facing. In Perth, Swanbourne Beach is known as a nudist beach, You don't have to be beautiful, just turn up and shed your clothes

Swanbourne Beach is best known in Perth as the nudist beach, but in most areas clothing is optional. Not all beach users are young and beautiful, my cousin and her partner -- who were in their 70s -- went to the nudist beach whenever they were in Perth, they swam naked. It's a good beach for swimming, the waves are usually low and the sand is fine and white. It's best to leave before the sea breeze arrives, the waves get choppy and it can get quite cool. Swanbourne attracts locals, tourists and backpackers. The only group who are not welcome are the pervs, who often hide out in the sandhills,

I visited Swanbourne Nudist Beach recently and spent the morning with the swanbourne Beach Nudist Social Group and a really enjoyed the time with a nice friendly group of people who made me feel very welcome and highly recommend others enjoy this liberating experience
Some details below-

“ABOUT THE GROUP”

We are a group of Nudist`s / Naturist`s who meet socially at Swanbourne Beach on Sunday Mornings from Spring into June when weather permits, and welcome other Nudist`s M F (from 18yo, mixed ages) who would like to join us including locals, tourists and backpackers.

In summer we start from 9:00 in the morning until at least 12:00 before the sea breeze and as the season changes, we start later.

The group was formed in 2011 having having met nudists from all over the world, and Members generally tend to be single, with some having partners that are not beach goers.

A great way to meet likeminded people and make new friends in a relaxing environment where you can swim, chat, play volleyball, tan, run, surf or just chill out.

There will be some random weekday meets also for those free!

I love this beach but have had so many unpleasant experiences. I try to set up nearer to couples/women if there are any around. The beach is FULL of men alone and there are a few who will blatantly stare at you and set up uncomfortably close to you even though the beach is huge. Just today a man approached me THREE times on his way to the water, once to ask if it’s cold, once to ask for sunscreen (??) and once to ask for the time.. get f***d. Stop approaching women on the beach!!! I saw him rubbing his pathetic little monkey chode quite a lot too. Not the first time I’ve seen that behaviour.

A well maintained easily accessible beach suitable for swimmers of all standards. This time of year it’s a bit chilly but in summer would be excellent. There is a superb restaurant and facilities on hand also.
