It's a fun place, much more interesting than the main beach. If it's sunny I can recommend it. It is safe as it's not too hidden away but it has a wall of pebbles so passers by cannot see you. It is mostly gay men,maybe 75% but there are single women, mixed groups of students having bbqs, even some families.... More

Nice beach, great location, plenty of parking, very relaxed vibe. Very gay men dominated with a sprinkling of couples. Shame about the odd perv and weirdo.

My first time to the nudist beach since living here 3 years, beach very stoney but take a towel and it's fine. Lots of people there felt very relaxed and was quite peaceful no pressure to get naked but once I did there was no stopping me. I was loving it a bit too much and ended up with bad... More

The naturist beach is a symbol of liberal , gay , inclusive Brighton. It is very positive that a section of the beach is available for naturists but a combination of the weather and entrenched views means that naturism never really caught on in Britain. I visited in mid July on a sunny day and spotted around 50 naturists 48... More

Stony, weather usually inclement, nothing much else to say about it - not suited for children to the "nature" of the area.

The Naturist Beach Is A Short Walk From The Rest Of The Beach. There Is A Car Park Near By. The Beach Is Stony. Busy On A Hot Day Especially At Weekends. Lots Of People About.

great spot for the naturist people and the ones who are open minded, as this is a mixed place straight, gay, bi, trans people use, its up and down a pebble beach so not good if you got walking issues, it can be quite at times but also very busy and people dressed can just walk by so even tho...

So I needed to fade in my tan lines We popped over to the well signposted and warning posted area It's full off gay men posing about a few dotted about females basking in the sun and a few couples trying out the adventurous side they have new found. Or trying to keep the spark ! Regardless it's a nice... More
