This beach is stunning and huge (3km) and about half of it is “unclad”. This is a far greater proportion for naturism than most beaches. Good parking by the main beach but a bit of a walk. Cliff top parking a bit nearer the nude...More

Backed by by rocky cliffs at the southern end, this long sandy beach has a crystal clear ocean and is generally calm for great swimming. Clothing is optional and no one really cares which is even better. A great way to really relax. Only trouble...More

What a great way to spend part of your day! It is a beautiful beach to walk on or let your children play or have a picnic as there is a playground there. You can spend lots of time there as it is so peaceful

A beautiful long, wide, flat, sandy, sheltered beach ending in impressive sandstone cliffs at the southern end - the clothing optional end! It can be less inviting on a day with north winds but generally Maslin Beach is an absolute pleasure over the summer months...More

A stunningly beautiful beach with rocky limestone cliffs in strata of orange, white and brown dropping to a wide beach with soft sand, shelving turquoise water and distant views of rolling hills and cliffs to the south.

Stick to the north side of the beach - the south is an unclad beach (unless that's your kind of thing!). The view is breathtaking looking of the ocean and the rocky outcrops to the south. Definitely one for the picture album, especially at sunset.
