Swanlake, near Manorbier, Pembrokeshire, South Wales

(South Wales)

Not an official naturist beach! In fact most visitors are "textiles". However, the beach has a small but determined naturist minority who co-exist happily with the textiles, or perhaps it would be more correct to say that the textiles co-exist with naturists. Whatever the case, there is a wonderful feeling of freedom on the beach.

One can walk naked from end to end of the beach with few (if any) problems - naked singles, male and female, naturist families and groups alongside all the textile equivalent variations.

Beach is best accessed from Jameston, while cars may be parked (honesty box) at East Moor Farm. Alternatively, one can access the beach from the cliff path (on which I have met ladies in microbikinis!) from either side.

Perfect first time experience
by: Anonymous

I visited Swanlake Bay twice this week. I have never been nude on a beach before.
On both occasions I parked at Manorbier & followed the coast path.

I was the only nude person there, but the few clothed people I saw seemed unphased by my presence.

I would love to see more nudists there.

Naked bliss
by: Anonymous

This is an amazing beach because textiles and quite blatant naturists co-exist so naturally and in a completely relaxed manner. No textile raises even an eyebrow if a completely naked man or woman walks past them.

Young, old, shaved and hairy - they can all be found. It is possible to walk naked the whole length of the beach past families as well as couples or singles.

If eyes meet and smiles are exchanged, textiles will often chat to completely naked people without any embarrassment whatever.

In how many places does this happen without the police being called? Furthermore, as another has suggested, it would be perfectly possible to walk completely naked from East Moor Farm unofficial car park to beach if one had the nerve.

Marvellous! Excellent for first time beach strippers.

Peaceful co-existence
by: Anonymous

This is a delightful place. Not only is it relatively easy to get to, involving a fifteen minute downward stroll through grassland, but it is a beach where naturists - families, couples and even singles of either gender - co-exist very happily with textiles, neither group interfering with each other.

I mentioned the stroll across grassland. I believe that if one had the courage one could strip off at East Moor Farm (where there is a small car park with honesty box)and walk down to the beach completely naked without problems - although I have not tried that.

Wonderfully tolerant co-existence of naturists and textiles.
