Zipolite

Oaxaca

First thing that comes to our mind when we hear the name of Zipolite is the nude beach located in the Oaxaca State. It is the only beach of this kind in Mexico. It belongs to the San Pedro Pochutla Municipality and is located just a few kilometers from Puerto Angel.

Decades ago in this place nudism was practiced. This is an open beach sea of about 2 kilometers long and 40 meters deep. You can book a tour to enjoy its crystalline water of geen and blue hues.

The name Zipolite means “Death’s Beach” in Zapotec language, and owes its name to a legend that says the Zapotec inhabitants used to bury their beloved ones there.

You can enjoy the lovely weather while you stroll through the riverbank without worrying about anything.

If you are seeking adventure then you can practice different aquatic activities such as surf, recreational diving, snorkeling or fishing. The sea swells are ideal for any of these.

There are plenty of hotels, cottages and bungalows for complementing your visit . You can even camp on the beach.

For eating, if you go to the Adoquín zone you will find plenty of options of traditional food, antojitos, beer and even crafts. By night this is the perfect place for relaxing in a bohemian atmosphere.

As an additional fact, Zipolite hosts the annual Nude Festival, organized by the Nudist Federation of Mexico. Here you can practice yoga, beach volleyball and even compete in a nudist rally.
