With twilight comes a flurry of activity with final sunset photos and more and more gay men making their way to Playa del Amor to enjoy a nude swim and to mingle. We are even fashionably late for sunset it seems! 

Nevertheless, after sunset, the music is turned up, candles are brought out, and the drinks and conversations flow. Often, you will find a performance or two, including a naked DJ or a naked fire show on a good night! Now you begin to see why so many people arrive “late.”
