Le Cap d’Agde naked city for a naturist vacations
Cap d’Agde is the seaside resort of the town of Agde, France, on the Mediterranean sea in the département of Hérault, within the région of Languedoc-Roussillon.
It can be reached by TGV SNCF train direct from Paris or Lille whilst the closest airports are Béziers – Cap d’Agde en Languedoc, with direct budget airline services to the UK and Scandinavia, or Montpellier-Fréjorgues. Public transport (taxi or bus) is available between Agde and Cap d’Agde.
Cap d’Agde is one of the largest leisure ports on the French Mediterranean. Development as a tourist resort started in the 1970s before which time the only buildings at the Cap d’Agde were small houses typically used for weekends by local people. A local tourist tax is charged per person, per day.
Cap d’Agde has a large family-style naturist resort with about 40.000 visitors on a daily basis during high season (=around 250-350.000 during the whole season)
This resort is a great location and destination resort for a holiday or vacation, considered one the best naturist destinations in the world.
Naked and notoriously naughty, a place where free spirits could spend their days naked 24/7.
As the official site says:
There is nowhere like it in the world, by day a naked city focused on a fantastic beach, by night a constellation of swinging clubs thronged by cosmopolitan libertines.
The naked city is a large fenced-off part at the north-eastern edge of Cap d’Agde, although it is accessible along the public beach from the east. It is a self-contained town (although sometimes referred to as the “Naked City“), where nudity is legal and common in the whole resort, including its restaurants and shops, day or night.
The etiquette is to carry a towel with you and put it on any seat before you sit down – for obvious hygienic reasons.
The naked city is a town by itself, with a 2 km (1 mi) beach, a large marina, 2.500 pitches campsite, apartment complexes, hotel, shops, restaurants, night clubs, bars, post office, bank and ATMs, laundrettes, hairdressers & other facilities. It all sums up to about 180 businesses related to it. You can practically just stay inside the main gate for your whole vacation.
A hundred yards beyond the police station, in front of the dunes, remains the ‘adult beach’. It is easily identified because it has no children and people’s towels are rather closer together than on the rest of the strand. It comes to an end with the much smaller ‘gay beach’.
Until the mid-1990?s the dunes were a popular swinging and exhibitionist spot especially in the early evenings. Now however they are covered with fences and strictly out of bounds while mounted police patrol from a hut next to the café to prevent sexual activity on the beach.
Apparently the police only patrol in the main season, from 1 July to 15th September. Before and after these dates the adult beach returns to its former glory.
The beach is an experience of a lifetime because it holds tens of thousands of naked people on a sunny day. Those who want to show off walk up and down along the shoreline or disport themselves on the adult beach. Here there is the intense feeling of being watched, as couples eye each other up for later.
Cap d’Agde has rules requiring nudity as the norm, which ban photography, the wearing of provocative clothing and the display of indecent items. Signs on the beach in 2008 warned against lewd behaviour. There are clubs and smaller venues including shops and bars. The night-life on this naked city centres on clubs and venues.
Many open only at certain times of the year. On 23 November 2008 the British newspaper The Sunday Times suggested fires at swingers’ clubs were the work of ‘nudist mullahs’ or fundamentalist nudists with a grudge against the echangistes or libertines.
Choosing one of the many restaurants in which to eat in Cap d’Agde is probably the hardest part of the evening. Fresh fish and seafood abound, as you would expect with Cap d’Agde being so close to the sea, but there is also a wide choice of both menus and venues to suit all tastes. Prices are reasonable and restaurants open until late evening, especially at weekends when Cap d’Agde really lets rip!
Cap d’Agde has a great selection of bars, restaurants and clubs to suit all tastes. The many bars in Cap d’Agde range from the likes of the elegant Eros café, with its large screens showing music and sports videos; to Johnny Wokkers, a small busy bar just off the beach with a terrace looking out to the sea beyond Cap d’Agde or the Melrose.
In the evening, when it gets colder, more people are dressed, sometimes in revealing clothes.
Although there is public nudity on a vast scale in the daytime, the evenings are more astonishing. People wear their sexiest gear and can walk around in leather, straps, chains, lycra or PVC creations that often reveal their piercings both above and below.
The club scene in Cap d’Agde really is world class. There are dedicated libertine clubs where literally anything goes. Clubs are squarely aimed at couples, and although one or two will allow single men to enter, they are charged high entry fees. Clubs in Cap d’Agde are normally open until around 5am.
Le Glamour in Cap d’Agde is one of the best-known libertine clubs in the world. An outdoor sushi bar leads in to an elegant dance floor and bar, but it’s downstairs where the action really hots up!
Le Juls is smaller and more intimate, but the separate playroom and showers attract couples and groups into their dark corners. The bar and dance floor are tastefully furnished and comfortable, and the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly.
Clair Obscure where the dress code is restricted to leather, rubber and latex – although they will normally make an exception for black clothing.
Naturist Cap d’Agde is made up of several quarters, each with its own identity, but the jewels in the crown of this swingers’ paradise are the newly established Le Jardin d’ Eden and Le Jardin de Babylone.
Heliopolis is the biggest and most prominent feature of Village Naturiste and is a 4-storey round apartment complex with a diameter of around 250 metres (820 ft) located at the beach. Heliopolis has a shopping area with a supermarket at the ground floor. It has approximately 800 apartment units for 2, 4, and 6 people. Built to Le Corbusier principles, the arc-shaped buildings contained an open centre with a swimming pool, tennis courts, and play areas.
