It may be somewhat of a surprise that there are currently quite some locations where nudists can take pleasure in revealing themselves like nature intended in Africa, as the majority of Africa is quite conservative in its social stance and traditional. Yet, South Africa, Mauritius and Namibia have designated spots for social nudity. South Africa currently has the most significant number of nudist beaches and social sites in Africa, even though, strictly speaking, public nudity remains illegal. But, some areas are identified as “Official Nudist Areas”, where you can go naked without fear of being a target for prosecution. Even at beaches that are not officially licensed, you won’t have any issues with the law. If you are at ease with your body and would like to feel the pleasure of hanging out on holiday in Africa, here are our top 10 places to visit.

Nudism Africa: Mpenjati Beach















Mpenjati Beach is located 140 kilometres south of Durban and was for the last two years a famous “unofficial nudist beach. However, in 2015, it was declared the initial “official” nudist beach and the 500-metre stretch of sand, as well as the nudists who frequent this beach – especially during Easter weekend Easter Holiday weekend – are the site of soccer and other sack racing.

Nudism Africa: Sandy Bay

Nude Africa Sandy Bay














Sandy Bay is another well-known beach for nudists, situated within Cape Town. It was also famous during the period of Apartheid, in which attitudes to the practice of being naked were more strict and still are until today. It’s not easy to access as it is a 20-minute walk from the closest parking lot or a shorter 10-minute climb over the rocks if you are strong and fit enough. However, it is the solitude that is the reason it is so popular and also what makes it an excellent place for nudists to retreat. The beach is surrounded by cliffs and steep slopes, which gives additional security.

Nudism Africa: Secrets Beach

Nude Africa Secrets Beach














It is located just a stone’s throw of Port Elizabeth – called “The Friendly City”- with a view of Cape Recife Lighthouse, which is often referred to as Secrets Beach and, to some locals, ‘Shelly Beach’. Dunes and bushes surround it; it is entirely private from all directions, which is why it is still a popular spot. Even during the oppressive apartheid era, the terrain gave nudists plenty of warnings if the police came near to allow them to hide or leave without being punished. Nowadays, however, the rules are much more tolerant and open in South Africa, and you won’t be faced with this issue here.
