What a wonderful beach and area to visit. We have been many places but really fell in love with this one. Nothing fancy, very laid back and casual, and you don't have to pack many clothes because they are not required! Being a clothing optional...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

Not a great swimming or snorkeling beach, but nice for walking and good restaurants. We walked there from Puerto Angel, a short but demanding walk. Took the Connectivo truck on the return trip for just 8 pesos! An adventure in itself.

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

Drove the hour and a half from Puerto Escondido and found this little slice of paradise. Just what you need to relax, a handful of beach bars and restaurants, long beach and water you can swim in. Not sure if it's like that all year...More

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

Zipolite has a wonderful community of eclectic Foreigners and Mexican Nationals. It's famous for the the clothing optional beach, but well known for it's relaxed, friendly environment. Getting to Zipolite from Oaxaca City is definitely an experience over the mountain switchbacks. Would recommend getting there...More
