“Cap Dage Naturist Village”

Cap d’Agde Naturist Village
Reviewed 3 September 2011

Stayed there for a week in late August. The weather was warm 6 days out of the seven so we could not complain and we both got a good tan. The village is starting to look a little tired and could probably do with being repainted etc. The beach is very nice and clean. Some of the restaurants are better than others with Le Ghymnos being the best we found. (Large plates of very good food.) As a general rule avoid any where only one or two couples are eating. The bakery and the shops have everything you need food wise. There are several commercial areas around the complex so if you do not see what you want in one move on to the next. The prices are reasonable. What do you wear in a naturist village? In the evening most people put clothes on, however for the ladies anything that you can wear in the UK on a night out will be too frumpy for this place! My advice is take one outfit and that is it. Wear it on the first day see what everyone else is wearing and buy a couple of dresses when you are out there. There are plenty of places selling clothes and the competition ensures that prices are reasonable, (also forget the underwear, you won’t need it!). Guys can get away easier, my advice take designer jeans and black trousers, buy a shirt or T-shirt out there.

Visited Cap d agde in july stayed at jardin d eden , i will start off with the negatives , i went there with my partner , it offers many things to do but having a pretty partner with you can be troubling at times , when we got there the first thing we wanted to do was check out the beach , it was late aftenoon , we went for a walk to the swingers side and have heard of sexual acts happening there behind the sand dunes etc , the shocking thing was that around the beach there is lots of single men hanging around like sexual predators , they will follow you touching there private parts which was a real turn off , we got to see some sexual fun happening and as soon as we were spotted half the men turned thier attention to us even though we were just watching , a very ugly feeling !

When walking around at nights be careful not to run into single guys as they gawk and stare and some (drunk) men may even try grab ur partner ! there was a bar called melrose which you can walk in just off the st which was very busy every night but walking in and just wanting to watch what was happening apparently isnt allowed as you have to buy a drink even though you dont want one ! seeing little kids at night walking around nude wasnt appealing as the dress of fetish wear and other sexual clothing may have made a shocking impression on any child in my view ! late at night at the entrance we noticed alot of young male youths jumping the fence into the village which was distressing making security an issue in lots of ways !

Other then that the positives far outweigh the negatives , restaurants are great if chosen the right one , Ghymnos offers the best value and amazing cuisine the best choice for me ! lots of different retail shops are at your disposal from evening wear to bear necessitys and lots of lingerie , lots of supermarkets are available which was great and all of this done in the nude which was actually very nice to do (if its your first time) atm machines are available . The best club to go to is Le Glamour which is couples only and strictly which was great , in the day it turns into a mousse (foam) party which is full nude and one of the most amazing experiences you will discover , couples only and sex everywhere !

Briefly went to the beach , but when we did we witnessed lots of sexual activities happening which was different but nice to see until all the single predatory men got too close so we left and didnt go back . The couples and people at the village you meet are very respectful and if you decide to want to play (swing) lots of invitations are thrown at you at private apartments making it a nicer experience !

Being naked in your everyday life is an awesome experience especially when the atmosphere is non judgmental and there is lots of activities happening , this place is closed off to the public and you have to pay to get in , its truely a special place in the world like no other !

My partner and I stayed at Le Jardin de Babylone for 10 days during the second part of June and here are our thoughts of our stay.
From the blurb we received from Peng, we thought that Babylone was outside the Naturist village, but like the Natureva Spa, was just inside the security fence.
Our first impression was that ‘Babylone’ was less than 50% full as were most of the other apartments but this was no bad thing as the area had a more relaxed feel to it. The apartments were of a good size and well-equipped but no kettle for us English!
The focal point is obviously the bar and pool area. We were told by more than one person that activity around the pool was at its greatest over the weekend period, numbers increased by couples who, knowing the gate code, simply walked in and enjoyed the facilities available. (Does management change the code at intervals?). Prices at the bar for coffee/wine and food were not too expensive compared with the resort as a whole.
Hopefully you’ll not have noisy neighbours above you arriving back at 4.00am to continue the club scene in their apartment. Would we stay there again? Yes we would, but would want an upstairs apartment.
What about the rest of the resort. To the newcomer it can take a while to work out where the best bars, etc are, and this is part of the appeal, but here are our comments on what we found. In general you can find everything you need within the ‘village’. If you’re into unusual clothing, you’ll be spoilt for choice, as you are with the range of bars and restaurants.
I’ll cover each area in turn.
Port Ambonne.
Has a mini-supermarket, as well as other small outlets but the best bar/restaurant here is Maximes, run by the indomitable Claudette, no doubt wearing her latest acquisition! Have a meal here and watch the drag artistes on a Thursday night. Highly recommended.
Port Nature.
Most of the bars/restaurants are situated here. The Melrose, a large place and virtually empty until 10.00pm, is at the northern end and is where the clubbers meet before ‘going on’ to the clubs of which Le Glamour, next door to the Eden is probably the best. At the southern end is Johnny Wokkers, which despite the name, is favoured by the English speakers. Next door is The Oasis, an excellent but small restaurant where you’ll need to book. Other places here of interest are L’Horizon, on the sea-front, Waiki and Le Mississippi.
Heliopolis.
Probably has the best selection of shops for everyday use. Here is the French-style Bar 1664 where you can have a coffee, croissant and watch the world go by. The excellent Ghymnos, is next door and offers a value for money menu which means it’s virtually full by 7.00pm. Go early for a more leisurely meal.
The Beach.
A wide expanse of sand, raked each morning, stretches for hundreds of yards to the north –east. The stretch from the breakwater to the bar/le poste de la secours, about 400 metres is for all naturists. Beyond the bar is the swingers stretch, always crowded, which then gives way to the gay scene before the ‘textiles’ emerge once more. The sea is shallow and ideal for all.
We enjoyed our time there and cannot wait to return. If you’re staying at Babylone, say hello to Lamy, the night security guard, for us.
Richard & Jane.

We have been four times and it traditionally ends our Euro Vacation. Depending our where you stay apartment or hotel the trip offers totally different experiences. We stay at Le Jardin de Eden which is the finest hotel in the village. It is couples only, but they allow escorted single guests. It is classy with a lifetsyle friendly edge..No..pool lounges..rather a shelf lined with very comfortable mattresses lining the famous "pink pool". If you are shy or a naturist this is not the place for you...They have a small walk up bar and restaurant that serves a small breakfast and a salad and sandwich lunch that is excellent.
It is very Euro and very sexy...the "cream of Euro Lifestylers hang here".....If this is not your thing you should pass, however for the open minded this is a "bucket list experince" and it may be right at the top!...

We have been visiting Cap D'Agde for several years and have stayed in all classes of accommodation. Without doubt the Hotel L'Jardin D'Eden is the highest quality but is full-on when it comes to the swinger community. Hotel Eve is quieter and comfortable. When we have rented apartments we have stayed in most of the various blocks. Although Heliopolis is the best for loaction, we now prefer the blocks at Port Venus or Port Soleil. These have the advantage of being a short walk from all the amenities, but also have their own exclusive swimming pools for residents, lifts to all floors, easy parking and most importantly away from the noise of the Melrose and the other bars/clubs. We like Melrose and the most of the bars, but it is hard to take night after night of noise preventing sleep until 2 or 3 in the morning. We book through Agence CHM Rene Oltra and they have a good selection of apartments in this area at prices that beat Peng and the other UK travel specialists.

Cap D'Agde is not for the faint hearted - you need to accept that there will be sights that shock or please depending on your views. But the atmosphere is always fun and friendly - we have never felt concern or worry about the large number of oddballs who visit the village. Even the Brescoudos Bike week at the end of August when 100's of bikers turn up on their Harleys, the place is unthreatening and fun.

Our special recommended bars and restaurants are:-
Bars: Johnny Wokkers, Bar 1664 or Pilotourie
Restaurants: Calypso, Waikiki (great seafood or Ghymnos.

Whatever age you may be you will feel free and liberated at Cap D'Agde Naturisme
