St Osyth Beach

Generally known as St. Osyth naturist beach this shingle beach stretches for a couple of miles between the holiday park and up to the Lee-Over-Sands hamlet. A little off the beaten track, and a 20 minute walk from the nearest parking, the beach here is usually quiet and largely frequented by naturists and dog walkers.

The beach at St Osyth is unofficially divided into gay and straight nudist areas. Sand dunes behind the beach offer a little more privacy.
