The only of­fi­cial nude beach near Rio de Janeiro is 25km away in a na­ture re­serve be­neath a panorama of rugged moun­tains. Praia de Abrico is at the far end of Gru­mari Beach and while not ex­clu­sively gay, it is pri­mar­ily vis­ited by men, es­pe­cially dur­ing the week. The nud­ist sec­tion is sep­a­rated from the swim­suit sec­tion by a cou­ple of boul­ders. Be­yond those boul­ders, nu­dity is not only en­cour­aged, it’s manda­tory. Con­sid­er­ing the qual­ity of the lo­cal Brazil­ian fauna, it’s more a gift than a rule. Pho­tos here are also for­bid­den; men­tal im­ages are an­other story.
