France’s Cap d’Agde is the nudist adventure of a lifetime. Cap d’Agde is a naturist destination for singles, couples, families, gays, lesbians and all nationalities. Heck, you can even bring your dog. Some people do. There isn’t the dog doo madness of Paris, but do watch where you step.
There are over 40,000 visitors annually of all types and nationalities, but there is plenty of space to walk around. With a 2 kilometer beach, you can take a nude walk till your tired, then pull up a seat and do some people watching.
The main visiting season runs June, July & August when there’s lots of visitors, but the weather is the best. Sometimes there is some wind off the Mediterranean, but hey, if you are naked and on vacation on the Mediterranean, it is hard to complain.
On trip report on another website by the president of an Indian naturist federation put it well: “Every naturist who’s been to Cap (for short) longs to go back there; many do, year after year, for a week or two every year, maybe more if they’re retired. And every naturist who hasn’t been there wants to go there some time.”
He goes on to say that Cap d’Agde “is a city, with pools, cafes, restaurants, bookshops, clothes shops, bars, snack-bars, laundries, post-office, estate agents’ offices, marina, bank, supermarket, bread and pastry shops, wine shops, fruit and veg shops, petrol pump, everything a city needs. The beautiful clean beach and the enchantingly blue Mediterranean sea are a bonus. And you have the legal right to be nude anywhere any time of the day. (The nightclubs want you dressed though). This is what the world would be like if it were CO (clothes optional).”
Lying just 25 minutes from Pouzolles, Cap-d'Agde offers everything you could wish for from a yacht charter in the South of France, with its bustling marina, numerous shops, boutiques and restaurants and miles of unspoiled golden beaches leading towards Sete and the historic town of Montpelier.
Take a stroll among the avenues of shops which cater for all tastes, then relax in one of the many exotic cocktail bars and restaurants, enjoy the live music and watch the sun set over the flotilla of glamorous yachts. Cap-d'Agde offers all the glamour and sophistication of the Cote-d'Azur, but at a fraction of the price. The food, even in the most exotic of restaurants, is very affordable while the array of boutiques offer everything for the fashion-conscious at well below high street prices.
The stretch of golden sand between Cap-d'Agde and the port of Sete continues for literally mile upon mile. The area is a haven for lovers of water sports, where you can windsurf, jet-ski, para-sail or water-ski. If you prefer something less energetic, join the locals for a relaxing afternoon's fishing or mix with the kite-flyers as they put an array of exotic creations through their paces. Of course, you could simply lie back on your own vast area of unspoiled golden beach and enjoy the sun! Parking, right by the beach, is plentiful and free!

The Same River Twice is a movie directed by Robb Moss.
Runtime: 78 min. Language: English Country: USA File size: 700 MB
The plot: Hippies do grow up, they really do. And even if you're the kind of crew that would take a month-long all-nude river rafting trip, The Same River Twice proves that you can not only mature, it doesn't have to be awful, either. Robb Moss's documentary begins with footage of the aforementioned rafting trip, which he participated in in 1978. Unearthing that footage, Moss reconnects with a half-dozen of his tripmates to see how their lives have changed from those drugs-and-love-but-not-clothes days.
Film scholar Robb Moss combines home-movie footage from the '70s with current documentary interviews to fashion this intimate memoir of his summer-of-love friends, then and now. The Same River Twice chronicles the lives of Moss and five of his friends, all of whom served as white-water rafting tour guides while in their twenties. In that era, their nudist, free-love ways brought them together; now, Moss learns, many of the couples have split up, or given up their utopian ideals. - Michael Hastings, All Movie Guide
