Tyagarah’s nude beach not so sinister

We are a local couple who are frequent users of Tyagarah nude beach. We have been to the beach several times already in 2018, including last weekend, and have not found it to be a sinister place.

On each visit the beach had a positive and safe vibe and other couples or small groups were in the majority. Any solitary males were minding their own business.

We welcome the police presence at Tyagarah, even if it is occasionally over-zealous, because it has reduced anti-social behaviour at both the beach and at the Grays Lane lake.

In our experience, perceptions of the beach and lake as seedy are out of date. We encourage all locals to grab their partner or a friend and check out the situation for themselves.

    As a representative of both Safe Beaches Committee and Byron Naturists Group, I personally have been involved in issues arising from Lewd Inappropriate Behaviour for some time now.
    Working in with Local Police, Council, Naturists Groups both here in Byron and those from interstate and our local community have all come together to ensure once again that Tyagarah and Belongil Beaches are once again a safe haven to visit.
    On many occasions over the last few months we have witnessed a huge difference in behaviour.
    Over the Christmas, New Years break I personally spoke to many couples who’d confirmed, yes they now felt safe and many who had no hesitation on bringing their children back to such an ideal location.
    Other Naturists Groups both interstate are now set to ensure also to be guardians of our Beaches for future generations to enjoy.
    Our Clothing Optional Beaches are now drawing many naturists couples, families and many genuine naturists single, yes including males who are there for one reason to enjoy being nude as nature intended.
    For those that wish to join us in promoting a safe Naturist Lifestyle in also becoming guardians of Tyagarah and Belongil Beaches please go to Byron Naturist Facebook Page for further information on Family Friendly Social Gatherings.
    Nude Not Lewd.
    Byron Naturists.

    Naturism is the act of going naked in designated areas, either individually or within a social circle.

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
