Welcome in CAP d'AGDE !

Agde is located in the south of France on picturesque shore of Mediterranean Sea . Founded about 2500 years ago, by Greek settlers, this little town of 10 000 people hosts more than one million visitors during a year.

Beautiful Hérault river runs through the town and connects Canal du Midi with Mediterranean sea. The large laguna known as The Pond of Thau produces excellent oysters and mussels, very famous among connoisseurs for their quality . The whole region is dominated by thousands of vineyards producing superb wine.

The cape of Agde, Cap d'Agde, was made by a lava flow from a very old, extinct volcano. Mt. St. Loup.

Plage de la Grande Conque

The basaltic lava flow from Mt. St. Loup created a very small black sand beach : Plage de la Grande Conque". This is the only black sand beach in France.

Cap d'Agde famous gray sand beaches, caressed by gentle waves of Mediterranean Sea are stretching for over nine miles.

The Naturist Village

The town of Cap D'Agde is clearly divided in two parts. "Textile" part of town, where nudism is not permitted, contains fishing port and recreational boats marina, restaurants, shopping centers, and numerous housing and apartment complexes for people who wants to be close, but not inside the naturist quarter. Village Naturiste, the world largest nudist resort is actually self contained town with it's own restaurants, bars, boutiques, clubs, hotel, marina and a large amount of mostly privately owned apartments, sometime offered for rental to the the public, through agencies like Geneviève.

The Village Naturiste is separated from the rest of town . The only excess through main gate is strictly controlled and requires a 10 € per week pass for residents. "Don't leave home without it", if you are planning to go outside the village.

For nudists and sexually liberated adults, Cap D'Agde represents total freedom. You have to visit this resort to see why.

The Village Naturiste contains much more than just a naturist beach or an ambiance of typical nudist resort. The Village Naturiste is fully fledged town, complete with supermarkets, tabac, restaurants, bars, cafés, hairdressers, beauticians, Brazilian wax shops, boutiques, delicatessens, butchers, bakers, post office, hotel, Internet café, laundry, bank, gas station, pharmacy and the medical center.

Unique architectural design of individual complexes mostly in the shape of terraced circle successfully protect inner swimming pools, from sometime cool sea breeze, extending relatively short season, when sunbathing on the beach is comfortable.

Many apartments are occupied by permanent residents year around, some are used only as a vacation's "get away" by their owners, leaving them vacant for very popular rental, to help to cover owners expenses.

Port Ambonne

Located close to the main gate, Port Ambonne is a large complex, build in the shape of semicircle, . In front of Port Ambonne, large swimming pool is surrounded by several shops, forming shopping arcade. Laundry, souvenirs, sexy dresses, food, wine, butcher, baker, caterer, hairdresser, and the bank. Go shopping with Kiki to get a feeling of the atmosphere !

Special recognition should be given to typical and very popular in French tradition, but unknown in USA : "Café Tabac" These popular "rest stops" are a combination of coffee shop, cigarette and newspaper store, and the tavern. "Café Tabac" are usually serving as a breakfast room in the morning, a bar during a day, and often, as a bistro or restaurant at night. You will always have "un café noir" available there or if you prefer... "une bière pression". Don't miss these places so unique to French culture !

In Port Ambone, there are also boutiques, restaurants, bars and clubs :


Héliopolis is the largest structure of the Village Naturist. Forming almost completely closed circle, with the opening, just few steps from the beach, this complex became the most desirable place to stay. Promenading and visiting several swimming pools, spread around Héliopolis' huge courtyard, it's a favorite pastime for many vacationers. "Skinny dipping" in warm pool is excellent alternative to, sometime cool waters of Mediterranean Sea. Short and easy access to the beach extends possibilities for strollers and "vista" lovers. Similar but larger than Port Ambonne business arcade, with many shops, utility and service places, including grocery stores, boutiques and variety of others, offer large shopping opportunities.

Attention !

Limited or nonexistent attire of gorgeous sales ladies running shops and boutiques, is known to help break codes into many wallets. Men are especially vulnerable to this distracting behavior. Their wives, not only accepting, but sometime even collaborating with this obvious women conspiracy, often ending up with material gain in the form of the new dress

Stores are open for business every day mostly from 9h00 to 19h00, but in the Village, boutiques around clubs are open from 17h00 till very late in the evening...


The best known club of Héliopolis complex Le Glamour is connected with equally known restaurant "La Villa Romaine" creating long remembered "dining and swinging" experience. Elegant surrounding , full of well dressed couple, enhanced by delicious dinner and the bottle of wine, gives a proper boost to incoming evening.
