It’s hard to believe that such a pristine and breathtakingly beautiful beach, often with groups of dolphins swimming or surfing, and occasionally Humpback whales frolicking in the sea, could exist a mere 40 minutes from Adelaide, one of our capital cities.
Voted sixth best beach in Australia……I can see why!

With delightful surroundings and clean, crystal clear oceans, this is a pristine environment to be naked in nature

We are a male/female couple and enjoyed a full day of nude swimming, sunbathing and exploring the beach.

The nude beach has its own car park with steep step access and a toliet block near the beach.

We saw a few other couples and singles. Mainly locals who were friendly and spoke to us for a while.

If you’ve never been to a nude beach, this is a great opportunity. Spacious area and safe, without any unwelcome attention. There’s a clear sign to delineate nude vs ‘normal’ beach area.

Only surprise was emerging from the ocean and finding 3 fully clothed female walkers strolling deep into the nude area. It was surreal having them first of all state and then engage me in friendly conversations and one asked if I could be in a group photo ;) very odd but funny!

All in all, a lively experience. Well recommended

The 1st official nudist beach in Australia (good on ya SA). The stark cliffs and curving bay make this a unique beach. Clearly signed 'nude' bathing areas, and plenty of space for 'non-nude' beach-goers. Definitely worth a look! An easy drive from Adelaide, and accessible by Metro too.

One of my favourite beaches, aqua blue water and a great beach for swimming. Good beach if you want to go topless, I do every time I'm down there and it is no problems.

Maslin Beach is my favourite beach in South Australia, but I may be biased, I've been coming here for over 20 years! It's so clean and the water so clear. The sand dunes that border the beach are stunning, especially illuminated by the setting sun. Magic. It's a large beach so usually it's not too difficult to find your own space. Peak summer time can get a little busier, but it is the only legal nude public beach around, so no surprises there. Once a year in January the Pilwarren Maslin Beach Nude Games are held there and attract hundreds of people. It's a great family-friendly event, free to enter and there are some great prizes on offer. This beach is so worth checking out, especially if you're new to the nudist lifestyle and want to test the waters, so to speak, before going to a nudist club or venue.

This review relates to Maslin (unclad bathing) Beach which is 4.5km by road south of Maslin Beach township.
This is 2 kms. of broad white soft sand Recreation Reserve protected unspoiled beach of spectacular beauty. Unchanged since first charted in the 1840's. Here the southern Flinders Ranges meets Gulf St. Vincent.
Australia's first legal nude bathing beach since February 1975.
If your to do some sun bathing a la natural it is best to access the beach from the carpark at the end of Tuit Road, off Old Coach Road, a few kilometers south of Maslin Beach township/village.
Reviews proclaiming promiscuity by same-sex attracted men is evidentially incredulous.
If you have not experienced an Adelaide summer...beware, prepare and take care.
During winter a bone-chilling on-shore sou' westerly will make your seaside experience as cool as the southern ocean from whence the wind blows.
If you rely on public transport Maslin Beach township is serviced by bus route 741 from 05:00 am to 07:40 pm weekdays.
You can not help but have a wonderful and memorable experience on southern Australia's best swimming beach.
Take only photographs, leave only footprints.
