A subsection of One Mile Beach where nude bathing is officially permitted, the clean sands of Samurai Beach lies in Tomaree National Park north of Newcastle. It is mainly used by older naturists.
Situated close to the Port Stephens Koala Sanctuary, it can be reached via an unsurfaced track, necessitating the use of a four-wheel drive vehicle.
A beautiful stretch of secluded coastline backed by dunes, Samurai Beach has its own campground, although there are no facilities such as toilets or showers. It requires no permit to drive along, but the dunes backing on to it should be avoided because of their fragile ecosystems.
The beach is never crowded, although it’s popular with both swimmers and ocean anglers. Visitors should note the surf here is some of the largest and most powerful in the area with big southerly swells hitting the beach in the winter.
