Late October Opportunities
My fiancee and I are planning to spend part of our honeymoon in the Cap d'Agde area toward the end of October. In doing my research, I discovered a great deal of information about the Naturist Quarter which has interested us both.
The only thing I haven't been able to determine is if the quarter is accessible at the time we wish to go. Is it too cold to enjoy the nudist experience in October? Is the quarter even accessible during the last week of October? Are the clubs open at that time?
Any feedback that can be offered would be greatly appreciated.
Re: Late October Opportunities
I once went to Agde at the very beginning of November and it was cool but perfectly bathable. However, I would not say that it is possible every year.
Last week of october, most facilities should be open, at least during the week end. Cap d'Agde (including the naturist quarter) is open year round.
Consider that if, unluckily, the weather was not fine, there is a lot to do in the backcountry. If you need it, I will give you some details.
I have been several times to the Naturist camping a long time ago. It was very nice, there were a lot of families with kids coming back year after year. Then, they built a first building with apartments. It began to change from naturist to nudist. Later, they dug the harbor and built new buildings, both in the naturist quarter and in the non naturist part. It changed even more. There was still a part for the naturist camping but narrower and narrower while the nudist buildings were increasing. I do not know if there remain any camping at all. I have not been to Cap d'Agde naturist quarter lately. From what I have heard, it is now a strange place with strange people, as some one wrote in this thread. However, the beach is still there and must still be pleasant. Not all visitors are "strange"!. You can go there if you want to, even for honeymoon (why not?) and have a regular behavior. Swinging or anything else is not compulsary! However, do not be surprised by the look and possibly the behavior of some of your neighbors.
Travel Tips for Le Cap d'Agde
The Naturist quarter in Le cap d'Agde
Cap d'Agde's "village naturiste" is a haven for nudists. It features all the basic amenities of any beach town, within the confines of the village.
The village is guarded and surrounded by barbed wire. You can purchase a card at the entrance that allows you to enter the nudist quarter as you please, which costs 9 euros. They of course only accept a credit card for a purchase 10 euros and up, so have cash.
Once you are in, you will have rules to follow. They are the law, so be careful about breaking them:
Access to the quarter is reserved for naturists or those working there.
Total nudity is obligatory within the quarter and the beach, as soon as climatic conditions permit. Most people dress for dinner.
Photo shots and filming are strictly limited to members of the family.
There are also several laws banning any sort of lewd, crude or pornographic behavior.
You can get to Cap d'Agde by flying into Montpellier or there are connections through Paris to Beziers-Agde-Vias Airport, just a few miles away. From Montpellier, take the train to Agde train station. A bus runs to the naturist quarter. There are also taxis, the cost is about 12-15 euros to the nudist village. Rent a car unless you plan to spend your entire trip inside the nudist quarter. Agde is rather spread out, the nudist quarter is not walking distance to anything. There is a bus line, but its schedule sucks.
The only hotel inside the naturist village is Hotel Eve. This is a hotel providing basic accomodations and decent decor. The hotel closes during the off-season, however, leaving only vacation rentals as the option.
Agence RESID offers a variety of apartments for rent in the naturist quarter.
