I have just returned from Cap d’Agde where I spent two weeks with my partner and wanted to give you all my views on the experience. I had been wanting to go to Cap d’Agde village since I first heard about it many years ago and it was all in all an enjoyable experience but you need to be prepared that this is not your ‘average’ Naturist resort. The accommodation is spread between apartments and villas and there is also a large camp-site area with log cabins and free ground for bringing your own camper van and/or tent.
The apartments are split into three areas but all in all they essentially look the same, Port Ambonne, Port Nature and Heliopolis are all white, concrete, buildings with large balconies though the apartments themselves are pretty small and basic. A major refit is called for but they do the job of providing, safe, secure, clean accommodation. Hotel Eve used to be the only hotel in the complex but has in recent years be joined by several new hotels such as Jardin Eden.
The beach is sandy, beautiful, wide, clean, with lovely sea but very cold water even in late June. It really is wonderful and is very shallow for a long way out so is excellent for families and young children. There are areas of the beach which have a lifeguard presence also. The beach is split into three main areas, families nearest to the accommodation, then there is the couples area, then the gay area. There are a good range of bars, clubs, shops, supermarkets, boutiques and a fine choice of restaurants.
The resort really caters for every type of visitor. If you are looking for a family holiday Cap D’adge can be a good choice. Another alternative to Cap for families though may also be La Jenny and Cap Nat. The camp ground really caters for the real naturist, whilst the apartment areas sometimes seem to cater for more of a mix of naturists and couples also sometimes visiting Cap d’Agde for the night-life.
There is a variety of shops ranging from a barbers shop, newsagents/souvenirs, several restaurants, bars, a couple of supermarkets, a few clothing shops and a few saunas for adults. Additionally there is a post office, petrol station and more bars and cafe’s.
