Anyone knows nude beaches in Italy are rare, while much of the attractive coast is also heavily exploited as well. But there are exceptions and one of these is the Oasi Naturista beach at Capocotta, south of Ostia, so close to Rome. At km 9.4 at the Via Litoranea, among a series of 'alternative' beaches with little exploitation, you'll find... More

You have to have patience going here, since you have to take the train from Porta San Paolo/Ostiense without any information, and then take bus number 7, which stops right outside the station Cristoforo Colombo. Then, after a lot of stops, you should step off at Varco 3 or 4 to reach the nude beach. The sand is marvellous, the... More

If it a nice day, it is a nice place to go and to experience a nude beach in Italy. Bus trip form Ostia Lido is about 40 minutes and make sure to get off at the correct bus stop (a bit tricky - lots of cars parked by the road on both sides of the highway.) A big contingent... More

It was so hot in Rome, well over 95 degrees. We could not tour the sites so off to the beach we went. I had general directions and the boys on the bus told us when to get off. It was the stop after the gay beach. We got off, went the restaurant for a quick salad and then to... More

My wife and I wanted to escape the heat wave in Rome, and so a nice nude beach seemed like the perfect answer, and it really was! We've never been to a nude beach before that had services. I guess Europe is just cooler about that. They had chairs and umbrellas for us to rent, and food and drink also.... More

Ok this isn't a place for nudists. While the beach is a legal nude / clothing optional beach most on it are clothed. The Bar / Restaurant was unique when we compared it to the others we'd encountered at other nude beaches in Europe in that you needed to dress to order a drink. The beach, and by this I'm... More

Now that's what I call Government! When will other countries (municipalities) follow Rome's example in organizing nudist beaches in a similar way? Conditions were so good (e.g. toilet, shower, restaurant with no dress code ;) ) it made me and my girlfriend hate and judge prude (i.e. "normal" tanning) people. (Shame on us...) Way to go Rome! Nice to see... More

Our children were 'cultured out' after 6 days of walking around Rome and we decided that they needed somewhere to chill and let off steam on our last full day. We were looking for a clean,quiet,sandy, free beach reasonably close to Rome and read that Capo cotta might be the place. It did do the trick, our 12 year old... More
