This little cove close to Middle Head is well known for skinny-dipping and snorkelling. You'll be nestled safely in bushland and gazing out across the glorious foreshore toward Dobroyd Head.

This short stretch of sand, also known as Little Bay Beach, is one for exhibitionists (mostly male), since tourists on boats often like to gawp as they make their way toward South Head. It's clothing optional, but most patrons are keen to keep it as natural as possible.

Located just off Middle Head, Obelisk is a little nude pocket renowned for its tranquility. It's a decent hike down the stairs to this little salty nudist haven, but it's worth it for the gorgeous views of Camp Cove, Parsley, Watsons Bay and Vaucluse in the distance.

Little Congwong Beach

icon-location-pin La Perouse

While not officially a spot for nude fun in the sun, this relatively secluded beach in La Perouse looking out over Bare Island attracts a lot of clothing optional swimmers. If you want to show off your fancy new cozzies, follow the walking track to its big brother, Congwong Beach, who prefers his visitors clothed.

Werrong Beach

icon-location-pin Wollongong

Located about an hour south of Sydney, Werrong is a truly secluded spot for naturists. The trade-off for the epic remoteness of the spot is the 2km walk to the sand, so you'll want to be dressed in walking shoes at the very least. It's also important to note that rips and rocks make this a challenging beach for swimming.
