Rocky Beach
Apr. 2021
This is a nude "beach" on Lake Travis. Only adults, 18+ are allowed. You pay for parking at the top of the ridge, and you walk down a path to the near the lakefront. The shoreline is all rocks. Getting down to the shoreline does require some agility. If you are not active or mobile, you will have difficulties moving down the "beach" as the cliff has large rocks which you will need to be able to both descend and climb. The waterfront is all broken rocks, not weather worn smooth.

We went on a weekday, and few people were there, and mostly spread out. You can have your privacy. This is not the place to get your kicks people watching. People come for the relaxation of nude sunbathing or skinny dipping.

Wasn't weird!
Apr. 2021
I was a little nervous about heading to Hippie Hollow. It turned out to be a fun day. What I liked best about the day was that it wasn't very busy so you could really just hang out with who you came with. We were mostly alone other than a couple people who walked by. I didn't find it creepy or weird. You really can get yourself secluded from everyone else. We got there, disrobed, and simply hung out in the sun. It was a bit cold that day so we didn't swim. It is very rocky and not very comfortable. We did manage to find a good spot to lay out though. It was a good day.

Texas tradition
Jun. 2020
A Texas tradition. I first went here in the early 1980s. It was free to get in then, but the place is still pretty wild. Bring water shoes or sandals because the rocks are fairly jagged. Overall a place that should be preserved and enjoyed for generations.

Sunday Afternoon in NOV
Nov. 2019
While staying in Austin area for 3 day, we drove here on a Sunday Afternoon. A little cool (69 degrees) and cloudy, but we did lay out for an hour. Not very busy; a few people here and there. Glad we brough our towels and some drinks and snacks. Only thing making our visit better would be to visit a month or two earlier when it's warmer.

One more off Bucket List
May 2019
My wife and I visited in May 2019. We didn't know what to expect so we did not prepare for a long visit and made plans to stay only an hour or two. After going through the pay station, we parked, walked down and as soon it was allowed to go NAKED, we did. Not to many people that day, but all there were nude. It is rocky but if you take a blanket, you can find a comfortable spot. The water was nice, however be careful because it's easy to get in but a bit difficult to get out because of the slippery rocks. We had always wanted to fish Naked and we did. My wife caught two good sized bass and a pretty big bluegill. I caught nothing. You can consume

Most Beautiful Spot On The Lake
Jul. 2019
It is a great place to go to at least once, because you will come back again and again.
Friendly people and relaxed environment.
ALWAYS WEAR WATER SHOES.
BE VERY CAREFUL GETTING IN AND OUT OF THE WATER, IT IS SLIPPERY.
WATCH FOR THE ZEBRA MUSSELS.

Texas Paradise

What a beauty! Definitely my favorite spots in Texas. Very rocky and can get cut so bring some shoes. Bring some tubes to float with. Clean water and nice people.

Hippie Hollow is Magical
Jul. 2018 • Couples
Straight away, you should know you're going to see nude bathers there...so what, live and let live. When I first moved to Austin, my boyfriend at the time suggested we go for a hike and we stumbled upon this place. I fell in love with the scenic views (no, not the naked folks), its just really serene there. I'm European so nude bathing is not a shocker to me, but it rattled him that he only saw naked men, but the women were on the opposite side. I said, "hey look, there's women (he was expecting swimsuit models, but nope) lol. Seriously, its a lovely, shady place to have a picnic and of course, go for a swim...probably not suited for the youngsters unless they are used to this sort of thing. Keep an open mind and check it out, there's not many places you can find freedom like this in our country.

Great day trip
Jun. 2019 • Couples
Not our first trip to Hippie Hollow and won’t be our last. Such a relaxing and quiet place. Sunbathe nude, swim, read, listen to music, or just close your eyes and chill.
