'KZN nudist beach would be a draw card for international tourism'

Naturists in Kwazulu-Natal are going to try once again to have a section of the South Coast beach officially being declared a nudist site.

Chairman of KZN Naturists Association Christo Bothma says there is a big demand for a nudist beach in KZN. He says there are about 50 000 naturists that have holidays abroad and they would like them to come to South Africa to boost the economy on the South Coast.

Naturalism is a family affair. There is nothing wrong with being naked and being social, it's a family thing.

Christo Bothma, Chairman of KZN Naturists Association

We as naturists, we conduct ourselves in a proper manner as if we were fully clothed.

Bothma says they are now going to prepare a new application which will include all the elements the Public Protector said they did not comply with.
