We love walking this beach at any hour of the day but late afternoon after the heat of the day is our favourite time. Quite often we will start at one end and work our way to the other, stopping for a beer or a...More

I have been to 80 different nude beaches and Zipolite is by far, my favorite. It is a similar vibe to Little Makaena Beach, Maui. The past 2 years, far more people, all ages, are going nude and there is a comfort level here of...More

Zipolite contrasts with our hotel Bahia de la Luna. Busier - catering for surfers and apparently nudists too! Quite the contrast. Was well served at Place on the Beach where no-one does anything

Great place to be yourself, free and relax. Surfers, yoga retreats and hammock to sleep in at the various accommodations. Total hippie vibe. Great local food and lots of places to choose from on this long stretch of beach. I've been a few times and...More
