What's the difference between nudism and naturalism?
Nudism is simply to remove your clothes. Now naturalism is a philosophy of life, where people live together nude in groups in harmony with nature and respecting one the other.
 
Am I obligated to take my clothes off?
On the beach (streak of sand) it's total nudity. The naturalists who frequent the beach themselves established this rule and they personally police the beach, guaranteeing its fulfillment.

 

Does everybody have to get undressed right at the entrance?
No. There is an adaptation area that goes up to the entrance of the inns and camping sites. In this area, the visitors that are still not naturalists are able to stay dressed as long as they don't enter the streak of sand. This rule is also valid for the guests that can remain in the area of the inn and camping with or without clothes.
 
Can unaccompanied men visit the beach?
Yes. They can visit the beach in the adaptation area and the streak of sand, respecting the limit of permanence for unaccompanied men. However, in this streak the nudity should also be total.
 
Can homosexuals or gay couples frequent the beach?
Yes. However, it is necessary that they remain in the unaccompanied men area
 
Can unaccompanied men lodge in the inns or camping sites?

There are some exceptions in case of single or unaccompanied men, as long as they compromise in respect to the rules of the beach and of the area occupied by the guests.

 
How to proceed in case of an erection?

Try to resolve the situation as quick as possible without constraining other visitors.

 
If I am on my period can I remain wearing my bikini bottoms?

Unlike other naturalist areas in Pinho Beach the entrance with bikini bottoms is not allowed, even being menstruated. In this case the visitor should wear a tampon.

 
Can I take pictures or videotape on the beach?

It is not permitted to film or photograph at the beach, even from far away, without the permission of the visitors.

 
Are children permitted on the beach?

The practice of the naturalism stimulates the nudity in group, with respect, harmony and security directly in contact with nature. With that, the number of families inserting their children to this practice is growing. This way Pinho Beach has received families from all over Brazil and the world that are trying to cultivate mainly between the infants this healthy and with no prejudice habit.

 
Why is there a division on the beach for unaccompanied visitors?

Unfortunately in some cases, unaccompanied men end up creating some uncomfortable situations to the families that lodge at the beach. The most common situations are: besiege of alone or accompanied women; acts of sexual or obscene character; exchange of caresses with others men etc. These cases occur mainly when the man is unaccompanied of a female and end up causing conflicts inside the beach. Therefore, for the beach to be total liberated, it is necessary that there is a change of the visitors behavior. This change should also be cultural because many men are still not prepared for living with the nude in group.

 
How much time in advance can I book my room in the inns with?

Depends on the time of year. On New Year's Eve, carnival and high season (summer)you have to book it with at least 01 month in advance.

 
What is included in my daily rate in the inns?
Room service and use of the common kitchen .
 
What is included in my daily rate at the camping sites?
Use of electricity, washrooms and common kitchen.
 
Are animals allowed on the beach?
