Nude beaches France



Cap d'Agde -- an iconic nudist resort town in Southern France.


Sometimes called the "Naked City," Cap d'Agde Naturist Village is the world's largest clothing-optional beach resort, attracting as many as 40,000 guests on any given day during high season.

Visitors are free to be naked wherever they want -- restaurants and stores, post offices or banks, sailing their boat or lounging on the long public beach (where nudity is obligatory, even for those not staying at the resort).

Non residents can stay overnight at the naturist hotel, camp ground or rental units.

Cap-d’Agde is the mecca of naturism. Described as the nudist capital of the world, this town doesn’t just have a nudist zone, it has an entire nudist village. Every single part of the Naturist Village is made for those who want to break free from the restrictions of clothing. Here, you can go about daily tasks like doing groceries and getting your hair done, all in the nude.

Because of the unique nature of the village, entrance is highly regulated, and visitors are required to fill in access forms to get permission for their desired length of stay. Once inside, it’s all about enjoying your natural self. But don’t think you’ll be able to share any part of your visit on social media: video and photography are quite restricted.

Where to stay: Stay at Natureva Spa to avoid having to leave the Naturist Village. It’s the perfect uninterrupted nudist vacation.

Plage de Tahiti - France

The French Riviera is another spot where people love to strip off

If you're heading to the French Riviera than this beach is worth a visit.

It featured in Brigitte Bardot's And God Created Women in the 1950s.

One user wrote: “The beach is perfect for those travellers who wish to play it cool and its pristine environment would allow travellers to enjoy their advent in utmost serenity.”

1. Plage de Pampelonne -St. Tropez, France

As with most of the beaches near the beautiful backdrop that is the Mediterranean Sea, Plage de Pampelonne attracts the rich, famous and the nude. Nude or non-nude guests are welcome to reserve a beach bed or parasol to be both comfy and covered from the sun. It is also a bit of a legend that once the sun goes down, the beaches aren’t the only places that allow nudity but nearby clubs as well. Plush greenery and picturesque trails lead to and from the beach that make walking anywhere a delight. Several beachside restaurants give a resort feel, and there are cabins to rent in the area should one wish. The view is certainly spectacular as yachts float about adding to the glitz and glamour the water already provides, and to the many reasons this beach is number one on the list. Class, elegance and fun are at the forefront at Plage de Pampelonne, where nudity is simply accepted rather than a requirement or overbearing necessity.
