Five Cornish Nudist Beaches To Try


Published at 4:16pm 19th July 2016.

Ever feel like stripping off when the sun is shining?

Well, Cornwall is the place to be with a handful of nudist beaches scattered across the Duchy perfect for naturists.

You can fully embrace the hot weather and say goodbye to clothes in the top 5 unofficial spots…

Sunny Cove

Sunny Cove can be found between Swanpool beach and Maenporth Beach. This small cove is ideal for those wanting a private location and it has been very popular as an unofficial nudist beach. According to Cornwall Beach Guide there was once a sign that read: “Costumes optional”.


Vault Beach

This sandy beach has gentle waves making it a relaxing and pleasant stay for those wanting to leave your clothes behind. The nudist section can be found at the far end of the beach.


Porthmeor Cove

This secluded cove can be found between Land’s End and St Ives (not to be confused with its larger namesake in the town!). It is a picturesque location, with rounded rocks and boulders creating a lovely spot to sunbathe.


Pedn Vounder Beach

Surrounded by rugged cliffs, this sandy beach provides stunning clear water and a great place to relax. You can also bring your dog along all year round!


Greenbank Cove

Between Portreath and Gwithian the north cliffs provide a haven of hidden beaches - perfect for a dip in the nude! It can be quite a difficult cliff to get down to the beach, so please be aware of this before packing your bag for a day in the sun.


Forget about the tan lines ladies and gentlemen!

Do not forget to stay safe in the sun though. Cornwall has been given a heatwave warning for the next two days. You can read advice and guidance here.
