Georgous weather, beautiful atmosphere, full of naked people!!
Can be very very busy during height of French summer holidays
The nudist capital of the world..........
At the harbor/port you can take a boat to Fort Brescou - a prison island just before the coast of Cap d'Agde and sniff some culture! There is a guided tour, but when we were there it was in French only.. luckily I understand some French :) But even if you don't it's worth a visit!more
This is a water park, full of slides, pools, etc, etc. There are numerous water slides/chutes plus a very very large pool which has a wave machine. Unlike other water parks I have visited this one does have adequate chair/recliners around (although there is a small hire charge) the main pool area, and loads of grassy areas around the slides for you...more
If you like fun, you can't go on holiday and not visit here. this purpose built entertainment site has something for everyone from a casino to a fairground. The fair opens up around 9 pm each night and closes around 1am. The music pumps out quite loudly, but the location is well thought out, as all the noisiness is located on its own island and not...more
Although Aqualand has a section for little children, you may prefer to visit Captain Jaks small water park if you have younger child/ren.This is a very shallow pool with a pirate ship and various slides, swings, etc.Great if you have a child 3-5 years of age as the entrance is much cheaper than Aqualand and you could relax while they are playing in...more
I would really recommend visiting the museum at Agde. Although there was a lack of english signs/information around the exhibits, the staff were extremely helpful. In fact, one of the staff became our own private tour guide and between my very 'petit' french and her rather better english, we understood and enjoyed all the musuem. She even gave a...more
There are over 14 km of sandy beaches in and around Le Cap D'Agde. These beaches have been categorised as Blue Flag beaches since 1987. If you want to avoid a crowded beach head up to the road that goes to Sete, and you will notice by the side of the road, a long sandy beach that stretches for miles. Everytime I have been there, even at peak...more
If you are at all interested in ships, yachts, etc, then Le Cap D'Agde is the place for you. There are many yachts of all sizes along the harbour. Also, you can have a wander around the ship yard at the south end of the harbour where you can see the ships being repaired in dry dock. Can be an interesting walk.more

Do not eat in this restaurant on the boulevard of Cap d'Agde, when you order something cheap of the menu when it's busy you will get bad food. We told the waiter that the food was not done, raw & cold; he told us that we should try another night or another time when it was not busy to get good food... We did not get an appology or a refund, the...more
This restaurant is just off the harbour set in a little square. The place feels so welcoming, and the staff and owners are also extremely friendly. Even though the last time I visited there were 6 of us, (all rather worse for wear) and we must have been a rather rowdier bunch than the usual patrons, we were treated with courtesy and made to feel...more

The harbour front at night really comes alive with many of the restaurants/bars on the front featuring live artists/bands. Although the drinks are not particularly cheap (bottled lagers/shorts/cocktails being quite expensive) it is worth paying for a couple of drinks and taking your time, to watch the yachts, harbour lights, people walking along...more
The nightlife in the nudist quarter isn't always for the faint of heart. While there are typical bars and lounges, there are some with signs pronouncing they are for "couples only." If this is not your cup of tea, you can certainly avoid these spots and your only contact will be reading the signs out front. They are very discreet. Ernest Hemingway...more

Agde is on the same railway line as Beziers and Montpellier; you can view the current timetable at
Look under 'Fiches Horaires' and choose the Marseille - Montpellier - Toulouse route
However the town and station at Agde is about 3 miles from Cap d'Agde. There are local buses and you can find the information at
The regional bus system also serves Agde and Cap Agde
The route map shows that bus 274 runs between Agde, Cap d'Agde and Marseillan but this runs only in summer.
There are many small shops offering many local crafts located in the small, pretty side streets of Agde - the town next to Cap D'Agde. Even if you don't actually buy anything it is a enjoyable way to spend a day. There are also lots of restaurants located between the small streets and the Herault River, where you can get a reasonably priced meal...more
There are four shopping centers in the nudist area, and each features grocery stores, souvenir shops, boutiques selling revealing clothing and beach gear shops. There are several cafes and restaurants in each of the shopping centers, or "centre commercial" spots. Outside of the quarter are markets, icecream shops and a vast collection of beach side...more
The Brescoudos meeting takes place each year, this year was the 18th. It brings together hundreds of chrome plated Harley-Davidsons and Goldwings from all over Europe. Hundreds descend on the harbour area over two days and the event features bike shows at Avant-Port and Centre-port, prize giving for best bikes, blessing of the bikes by the bishop...more
I don't know if this is a local custom or just something my family/friends have created as a 'must do' over the 20 years we have been visiting. There is a little bridge from the mainland to Ile de Pecheur (a small island), from which we jump into the water below on the last day of our holiday. Not for the faint hearted but an adreline rush.more
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...more
In the harbor/Port:Everywhere you see signs with '1 kg. Moules and Frites' for just € 8,00 per person. That sounds cheap (well.. in Cap d'Agde it is..) but first take a look at the chart before you sit down.. in some cases we payed more than € 6,50 for a Coca Cola or a beer. The places with life music are the most expensive to drink something, if...more
If you do wear clothes to the nightspots of the naturist quarter in cap d'agde, I suggest you don't wear your best cashmere cardy!! There are pole dancers on the bar bench tops and they do squirt the crowd with postmix machine nozzles! Highly amusing, but lemon squash doesn't do great things for high cost fabrics!more
Get to the mount st. Loup, there is an entrance-road on the bottom of it (although you can't drive to the top) the view is well worth the 20 minute walk!
Don't forget to bring your camera an pickup some of the beautiful lava-rocks to bring home and decorate your candles or something like that :)
Ofcourse it is entirely free to walk up the mountain.
There are loads of diving shops situated around Le Cap D'agde, and loads of yachts offering diving trips. Unfortunately, even though my friend is a diving fan, when we last visited he was unable to go due to bad weather (well, it was February!) Having spoken to local diving enthuasists, I was informed the scuba diving is not particularly good in this area, but as I havnt ever dived I really can't give an opinion on this.
Equipment: As I don't dive myself, I wouldn't know where to start in recommending any particular place or company to use. Perhaps you could contact the local tourist office for up to date and accurate information, and get recommendations from them. Every time I have spoken to them I have been able to speak English to the person, and they have always been really helpful and friendly. Their website is www.capdagde.com
