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In our experience, perceptions of the beach and lake as seedy are out of date.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.
