The Presentation of the Naturist Village of Cap d'Agde

The naturist village of Cap d'Agde is the world's leading naturist and libertine destination, offering over 2 km of fine sandy beach. It's a self-contained village with stores, bars, restaurants and plenty of leisure facilities.

History of the naturist village

The history of the naturist village of Cap d'Agde dates back to 1954. Cap d'Agde did not yet have the worldwide reputation it has today since it did not yet exist at the time!

At that time, two avant-garde brothers, René and Paul Oltra, decided to set up a small naturist campsite on the Languedoc-Roussillon coast.

Very quickly, the Oltra brothers' naturist and family campsite welcomed more and more people and became an essential naturist destination.

9 years later, in 1963, the Racine mission, led by Pierre Racine, was created. This is an interdepartmental tourism development mission for the Languedoc-Roussillon coastline in order to create a seaside resort worthy of the name. The objective is to be able to accommodate the growing number of tourists (and naturists!) wishing to enjoy the place.

The naturist village of Cap d'Agde took shape in the Bagnas district. In 1974, Port Ambonne, one of the village's districts, also won the Grand Prix d'architecture for its originality.

Thanks to the Racine mission, Cap d'Agde is today the leading tourist seaside resort in Languedoc-Roussillon. The naturist village of Cap d'Agde is the leading naturist center in Europe in terms of reception capacity.

Where is Cap d'Agde located?

Cap d'Agde is a French seaside resort located in the commune of Agde, in the department of Hérault in the Occitanie region. The city extends to the south of Mont Saint-Loup, formed 750,000 years ago following a volcanic eruption. It develops around the port which constitutes a major center of attraction.

The naturist village of Cap d'Agde is located on the edge of the resort, allowing residents and visitors alike to enjoy the pleasures of naturism with family and friends.

Cap d'Agde naturist beach

The naturist beach is located to the north of the seaside resort. It is accessed via the Port of Ambonne. For naturists wishing to enjoy this beach, but not residing in the village, an access fee to the naturist camp must be paid at the entrance.

What is the most beautiful beach in Cap d'Agde?

Cap d'Agde has many beaches where you can swim and sunbathe. The beaches of Cap d'Agde are distinguished by their azure water and fine sand.

One in particular stands out for its beauty and uniqueness: La Grande Conque . Nicknamed "the black pearl of the Mediterranean", this beach is characterized by its black sand and its unusual access via steps carved into the volcanic cliff.

Located between Plagette and Plage des Falaises, this beach close to the city center is only 200 meters long. Better to get up early to be sure to put your towel down! It is possible to park in the Fortin car park and access it after a 5-minute walk.

The Bay of Pigs

The Bay of Pigs is a fine sand beach for naturists. It is located on the edge of the naturist village of Cap d'Agde. It is also renowned for being a libertine beach, especially at nightfall. The Bay of Pigs is therefore not a historical reference, but rather a pleasant beach where you can swim in Eve outfits during the day and have fun at night.

Officially, the Bay of Pigs beach doesn't allow sexual acts, but exhibitionists don't care!

The naturist camp

The Cap d'Agde naturist camp is separated from the rest of the city thanks to its marina. It has a 2 kilometer naturist beach, numerous accommodations, shops, bars and restaurants as well as several entertainment venues.

The naturist village of Cap d'Agde is Europe's largest in terms of surface area and enjoys a worldwide reputation. Every year, many naturist tourists set foot in the village to enjoy the freedom and festivities.

With its neighborhoods of Port Ambonne, Port Nature, Héliopolis and Port Vénus, among others, the naturist village offers a variety of places to party and feel free. Freedom is an important principle for the village. The freedom to be naked, to walk naked, to bathe naked, to assume one's personality, with its extravagances, but also one's sexuality.

Although the village is essentially swinging, you shouldn't feel obliged to do anything. Here, the word is clear: no means no!
Whether you're dressed sexily, extravagantly or more conservatively, there's no judgment, whatever your body type or age. Photos are forbidden on the beach and in the clubs, to respect everyone's privacy.
