Nudity is not permitted on the land and most of the other restaurants have the same policy. Having Illegal drugs or drinking alcohol on our sacred land is not permitted. Land owners can loose their land if they permit the use of illegal drugs, like marajuana. Drinking of alcohol is permited at our beach cafe below Shambhala which is on zona federal (federal property). Our policy of zero tolerance is for security, peace and harmony.  Please respect our policies, they are for your protection as well as ours.

Zi[polite is a clothing optional beach, however nudity is not allowed openly on Shambhala property and most of the other restaurants that line the beach have the same no nudity rule on the premises. Because of a few disrespectful individuals, Zipolite now has a local law prohibiting sexual acts on the beach day or night. The new ordinance will be inforced by the local police and military patroling the beach. Please do your sexual thing in private!

Other Conditions:

Our facilities are open to the public, but showers and restrooms are for our guests only. Public restrooms are on the beach.

Our Shambhala restaurant is open to the public depending on the leasor's intent, but can also be leased to a private group. When our restaurant is not leased out for public use, it will be closed to the public. The same applies to our beach cafe.  All our facilities can be rented or leased out for public or private use.
