An eye-opening hour at Kent’s little-known nudist beach on the Isle of Sheppey
The naturist hotspot at Shellness is a short distance from Leysdown
A short distance away from Leysdown beach lies a hidden stretch of shore.
For those in the know, Shellness is one of the most popular nudist beaches in the UK.
It is a true naturist hotspot.
We thought we’d pay it a visit to find out what it’s really like.
As I drove past the main beach at Leysdown, I wondered just how far down the beaten track I would have to go to find it.
The answer was a further half mile of undulating, pothole-pitted, tyre-scraping, off-piste road.
No-one would come down this lane by accident.
Parking my car next to a dozen or so others, I walked up the grass bank to catch a first glimpse of the sea.
The sea was not what I saw first.
Beyond a sign welcoming me to the Swale Naturist Beach strolled a man in nothing but flip-flops without a care in the world.
I walked further in to take in my surroundings.
