It hasn’t been a great beach season on the Sapphire Coast, with heavy smoke, fires, and ash on the sand and in the water still detering many swimmers.
But autumn is known to locals as having the best beach days, with clear blue-green water, warm ocean currents and plenty of sunny days. It’s not too late to capture the last of summer and what better way to celebrate living through an unprecedented fire season than by tossing aside those soggy swimmers and giving naturism a try?
After cancelling their annual Nude Year’s Eve dinner due to fire, Bermagui’s nudists, the Armands Bay Leisure Group, which frequents the only legal clothing-optional beach from Nowra to the Victorian border, Armands Bay, is keen to go ahead with their Family Fun In The Sun day, scheduled for Sunday, 8th March.
“We welcome new faces and there’s no pressure to get your kit off, it’s clothing-optional,” says club president Errol Masterson.
This year, the Bermagui group have had trouble finding someone to lead the games and activities on the day, so the ACT Nudist club has stepped in, providing an experienced facilitator and attending en masses themselves to support their coastal counterpart.
