Cap d'Agde Postcard

Cap d’Agde – Naked City

Since the resort town was built in the 1960’s, it has been promoted as the ultimate naturist destination; a place where you can fully live clothesfree and all modern services and conveniences are available. While this area of the city of Agde is officially known as the “Quartier Naturiste” (naturist neighbourhood) it is also often described simply as the “naked city”. In the last few decades it has also been heavily criticised for the open sexuality and preponderance of swingers’ clubs. So is it naturist? We asked Nick and Lins of Naked Wanderings and Dan Carlson, also known as Naturist Dan, of the Meandering Naturist blog about their experiences.

  1. So is CHM Montalivet and Euronat more like Bare Oaks or some of the more active American resorts (I know the sizes are a lot bigger of course, and still have yet been to Bare Oaks. But I’ve been to Solair in CT.), where they are closed off with a gate. So, it’s only accessible to true naturists?

    1. CHM Montalivet and Euronat are enormous resorts. They are closed off with a gate but the sheer size means that there is a greater variety of types of naturism practiced. It’s easier for smaller places to maintain more homogenity. That’s true for Bare Oaks and for smaller places in France.
