Playa del Amor

Esa página está disponible también en español.

The whole of Zipolite beach is a nude beach, even if clothed people are the majority. But the more secluded Playa del Amor is the most gay (and has the most nudity). It is reached by walking to the far east end of the main beach and wading through a shallow pond (depending on the tide) and the up some stairs and down to the beach. There are two vendors selling beers and some food as well and offering chairs and umbrellas to customers. There are also visits from roaming food vendors. After sunset it can get cruisy.

Unfortunately since 2021 there have been increasing reports of police patrolling the beach and threatening to arrest people who are having sex on the beach. They are not acting against nudity but only open sexual activity and extorting money from those caught. This can happen both on Playa del Amor and the main beach so use caution.
