Armands Beach Bermagui - Bermagui
If swimming and sunbathing in the nude is your preference, visit Armands Beach which was declared legally clothes optional by Bega Valley Shire Council in November 1993.

Armands Beach was named after a man of French origin, Armand Lemmeric, who owned a farm behind Armands Bay and regularly swam nude at the beach. In the 1930s nude cricket matches were held at the beach.
Armands Beach is not patrolled and there are no toilets or facilities. Bring all you need and take away all you bring. Nudity is limited to the extent of the sands of the beach.
