Cap d'Agde, France: Naturist Village
Ever dreamed of being able to have a 24/7 nudist experience? Since my introduction to nudism, I certainly have. Resorts are abundant here and many have wonderful facilities, but still you are confined to the grounds of the resort while enjoying nudist activities.
How about Europe? In general Europe is far more progressive where it comes to nudists and have more nude beaches and other venues for nudists to enjoy. Having just visited Europe not long ago, I had such a wonderful time that already Im anxious to return and when I do, this time I definitely will be incorporating clothing optional into my travel plans.
A little research led me to the web site of Cap d'Agde, a naturist village in France, just a few kilometers from Montpellier. I actually passed very close to this area on my previous trip but of course was unaware of it at the time. Cap d Agde boasts that it is one of the worlds best clothing-optional, naturist villages and resorts and one of the ultimate places to spend time in the buff. Based on what Ive read they seem to be right! This naturism resort is an enclosed, self-contained village where nudists can enjoy not just the usual nudist resort fare like sunbathing and swimming but can also do every day things like going to the bank, post office, restaurants and launderette, all while nude. Located on the Mediterranean, guests can also enjoy the 1.25 mile, 100 yard wide, naturist beach, clothes free, just as nature intended.
In addition to the beach, the resort offers a spa, shops, restaurants, bars and cafes I addition to the more mundane facilities mentioned earlier. Principal accommodations are apartments and a 48 room hotel. Camping is also available but probably more convenient for local guests than for tourists.
Here is review submitted by one British couple after their visit that I found published on the web site:
Just a few brief notes on our recent first visit to Naturiste Village of Cap d'Agde.
Impressions are as follows:
Beautiful clean beaches, we are beach lovers who have travelled the beaches of the Med, and these at Cap d'Agde are hard to beat. The acceptance, attitude to and lack of inhibitions amongst the naturists here, are as we have found in the South of France, refreshing and exhilarating.
The village has a great mixture of bars, restaurants and clubs. We particularly like the restaurant Calypso right on the beach for its fresh grilled fish and good salads. (All at sensible prices). We liked the Melrose Bar for it's liveliness, good music, good bar and serving staff, and a great venue for letting your hair down and having fun. We didn't sample any of the clubs, (there's only so much you can see and do in a long weekend), but they look to cater for all tastes.
Accommodation is varied and plentiful, (apartments, hotel and camping). Finally, it's great to have a place where you can live for a short while without clothes if you wish, dress outrageously for the evening if you wish, but at the same time be under no pressure whatsoever to wear or do anything you are uncomfortable with. Travel to the Cap is easy and reasonably priced from the UK, we are lucky as we live only a couple of hours away. Wishing all current and future visitors lots of fun and joy at the Cap. We are going back later in July for more, it really is a great and different place for stays long or short. We'll write more about our next visit.
For Europeans and for any who may have a European trip on their horizon, Cap d'Agde sounds like a delightful destination. I know I will certainly be giving a visit there serious consideration on my next visit to the South of France.
