Although naturism has quite a long history in South Africa, the country never really appeared on any naturist map because the clubs and resorts mostly focused on a national public. But those days are gone, more and more South African naturist resorts are attracting an international public and thanks to the warm(ish) weather year-round, they are becoming pretty successful at this.
Most naturist resorts are within easy driving distance from the largest cities (and airports) in South Africa like Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban, and Cape Town.
Official public nude beaches are non-existing, but there are a number of unofficial ones spread along the coast where you can perfectly drop your clothes and find other naturists. Especially on weekends.
If you ever wondered when would be the perfect time to try naturism in South Africa, it’s definitely today!
