France is full of many beaches for naturism, more than a dozen allow this practice, while others tolerate it. The most beautiful naturist beaches are obviously in the south of France.
To tan without traces of a swimsuit and enjoy the warm rays of summer, what better than a nude sun bath!
Followers of naturism have an embarrassment of choice. Whether it's near the Mediterranean or the Atlantic, we can access it through a naturist center or by the coastline. Naturally, those connected to a naturist center are protected, and naturism is required.
Naturist beaches in the Mediterranean
It is in the PACA region that we find most naturist beaches, and mainly in the region of the Var. The naturist centers associated with it offer catering and accommodation services. The island of Levant offers entirely naturist beaches. Near the beaches of the eastern Pyrenees, we head towards Sainte-Marie, Elne and Toreilles. There is plenty of space, so the municipalities provide special areas for naturists.
The naturist beaches in Corsica
For the beauty of beaches and landscapes, Corsica remains the best choice. The water is crystal clear, the fine sand and the grandeur of the beach make it a privileged place. The beach of Bagheera of Linguizzetta in the north of Corsica lies at de Bravoe, close to the pool of U Stanolu. This beach stretches over 3 kilometers and is totally naturist. The naturist estate Bagheera rents deckchairs and parasols. Those who do not want to stay at the estate can park on the estate (paid parking) and access the beach to the south of the center.
The naturist beaches of the Atlantic
Near the Atlantic, we can find beautiful naturist beaches on the Gironde and in the Landes. Several beaches are not monitored. Some beaches are dangerous because of the baïnes. Naturism is tolerated there. For those who are looking for security with a rescue station, it is advisable to head towards the beaches of Saint Girons or Hossegor. Several naturist centers located in the Gironde, offer beautiful and long beaches, very often quiet depending on the season. Sometimes the ocean offers super waves to surf enthusiasts!
On the other hand, naturism is forbidden in principle in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques department (all along the Basque coast). We find a unique area where it is tolerated on a beach of Hendaye near the Spanish border.
So for climate and the setting, France offers you a wide range of naturist beaches. Water is an essential part of a beautiful holiday! Have a great time at the beach this summer!
