Nudist Beach Near William and Kate’s Home Wants Official Recognition
The beach is patrolled by an ‘irate warden,’ according to local nudists.
Naturists are campaigning for a popular beach near William and Kate’s home in Anglesey to become an official nudist beach.
Newborough Beach, just three miles from William and Kate’s Welsh farmhouse, has been popular with nudists for years, and British Naturism is now seeking official clothes-free status for the beach.
The beach has its own entry on the UK Naturists website, which advises that interference from clothes-wearing beach users – or ‘textiles’ is minimal: “The beach has breathtaking landscape and superb views of Snowdonia and the Lleyn Peninsular. The beach itself is of fine, golden sand, backed by dunes. On-shore winds from the Irish Sea can be a problem at times. It is said that most naturists gather in the area to the south of the car park.
“At high season textiles do walk along here sometimes so just be sensible and don't be obvious. If you see the warden coming along the beach in his 4x4 cover up, he is known to get just a tad irate!”
Local councillor Peter Rogers told The Daily Telegraph that he would prefer the beach not to be used by naturists.
“It would be better either for them to be banned or, if they are going to be there anyway, for there to be proper regulation,” he suggested.
“In other words either stop it or have a properly controlled part of the beach for them, which might benefit the local economy. It’s not the nudists who are really the problem but the people who go and watch them from the trees.”
Locals say they haven’t yet spotted William and Kate strolling along the beach with their dog, although it is within minutes of the home.
