Zipolite is a beach in Oaxaca, Mexico on the Pacific Coast. It is a small town full of hippies who stay longer than they planned to. There are plenty of hotels that offer simple accommodation and restaurants. Zipolite is one the few nude beaches in Mexico. Many people swim here, but the strong undertow and large waves mean that you should use caution. Volunteer lifeguards have to make rescues everyday. To reach Zipolite you must take a bus or minibus to Pochutla and then get a taxi or shared pick-up to Zipolite.
