Shellness Beach (Leysdown Naturist)

Just under a mile along the coast from the resort of Leysdown-on-Sea, on the Isle of Sheppey, is Shellness. This is a world apart from its rowdy neighbour with just a few ramshackle beach chalets and old, land-bound boats.
Shellness beach is quite well known in these parts, and mainly on account of it being an official nudist beach. In the summer it can get quite busy here, however, for much of the rest of the year it can be quite empty.
Whilst I haven't fact-checked this, it is quite probable the name of the beach refers to the largely sandy beach is covered with small sea shells above the tide mark.
