Located only around 10 kilometres from the Italian capital the stretch of coast between Ostia and Torvaianica is largely incorporated into the Litorale Romano State Nature Reserve. A swathe of pine forests, wetlands and dunes this is a pristine area of environmental interest. The reserve is also dotted with various historical and archaeological sites.

All this makes for a lovely and unspoiled backdrop for what is probably the regions finest beach. Part of a stretch of soft pale sand that forms Capocotta, the “Oasi Naturista” is Lazio’s best known nudist beach. 

Translating as Naturist Oasis, the beach is this in both senses of the word. Respect for other beach goers and the local environment are both stressed.

One of the oldest official nude beaches in Italy, Capocotta is well established and has a few rules to maintain the decorum and privacy of beachgoers. There is strictly no photography and behaviour should be appropriate.

Recognized by the International Naturist Federation and is a meeting point for the Roman LGBT community, the Oasi Naturista di Capocotta is a popular spot for the Roman LGBT community.
