For those of you new to the resort, Agde is a town in the South of France and close to 30 Kilometres south-west of the city of Monpellier. Whilst Agde is a town with its own marina and sometimes used as one of the stops for the Tour de France, the town is more commonly known worldwide because of what is said by many to be the largest naturist resort in the world.
The resort village itself is located on what is known as Cap (meaning the tip much like in the name Cape Town) and hence the name Cap d’Agde. Cap d’Agde is more than just the naturist village in that the area incorporates more than just the resort. This site though of course is interested in the resort itself and everything that goes in the gated areas we all love to call home for a few weeks each summer.
On this site the main information you will need is on the top menu such as hot and where to book accommodation for a stay at the resort (do not forget that you want Cap d’Agde the naturist resort and not the textile areas outside the village which are still considered the cap area), information on nightclubs, what there is for swingers, naturist and all visitors, in addition to the regularly updated news section. In the news section you will find a wide range of subjects covered from what time of the year to visit, to what to wear, all about the camp site and camping facilities, through to the age range, exact location and latest changes at the resort.
One of the great benefits of a holiday location such as Cap dAge in France is the ability to truly let oneself go and feel free and to be in a place and vacation setting in which one is not judged by others. In textile resorts worldwide, there can often be a certain pretension associated with the place i.e. a certain beach politics one might say. In Cap it really does not matter what size or shape you are because this resort really brings together people who have given up worrying about how their bodies look. A visit to the village really means for many people a chance to let go of everything and to relax and feel free.
When you throw into the mix the wonderful summer weather down here in the south of France, a lovely long beach will everyone also enjoys to walk up and down for a stroll each day and throw in a dozen or so nightclubs and bars and restaurants inside the gates and what more can you really want? Oh – and I forgot to mention the foam parties and the great sea-food.
