In South Africa specific clothing laws exist for the general public. Nudity is treated under indecent exposure. On 3 April 2015 the country's first official clothing optional beach, Mpenjati Beach near Trafalgar in KwaZulu-Natal, opened after the Hibiscus Coast Local Municipality approved the South African Nudist Association's (SANNA) application. Nudity has gradually been tolerated on Sandy Bay in Cape Town although it is not an official legally recognised public nude beach. Partial nudity is also tolerated on other beaches.
