We found a secret nude beach only 800 meter – 10 minutes walk – from Barefeet Heaven Hill Naturist Resort!
The beach is accessible only from Sinchai Chao Mai Resort to the east if you walk on the beach and only at low tide. Unless you swim around the cliff or rent a canoe. Once inside, the beach is clean and white with powdery sand. The water is clear. It is spacious … it is gorgeous!
On Google Maps, the beach is called Had Kang Waen, which means Dusky Langur Beach. A langur a monkey species. This one is also known as spectacled langur, or spectacled leaf monkey. The dusky spectacled langur is on the IUCN Red List over near threatened species.
Yesterday, there were no monkeys on Dusky Langur Beach. Well, there was another naturist, our Belgian friend that I introduced in Early morning beach walk.
He has been coming here for years and his naturist lifestyle is well known among the locals who take no offence since nobody needs to come around to this beach anyway. He even walks back to his bungalow outside the private lagoon without clothes, but I would never take it that far.
It has happened, he recalls, that textile tourists in a canoe come paddling around the rocks, but they just smile and paddle on. Once a small football team came to play on the beach. But everybody seems to accept, that this is secluded and hard to access bay where nudity cannot really be considered as ‘nude in public’.
This nude beach will be extremely popular among our guests here, that is for sure!
We will add more photos as we visit the beach.
Update: Today, when the sun was setting and we were about to go home, out of nowhere came four national park rangers.
We got dressed and went over to chat. We asked them how they could come over the mountain and they laughed. There is a hidden trail from the road over the rock and around the mountain, they explained.
They also told us, the name of the beach is not Kang Waen but Ao Bor meaning “Bay of Bor”. Bor is a kind of tree that grows around the edge of the sand before the rock goes up. The funny thing is, that if you pronounce bor slightly differently, “bor” with a rising tone means nude.
