The Naked Truth About Cap d'Agde

 
MS03S Softcover - The Naked Truth About Cap d'Agde
!
Making the most of a holiday in Southern France's celebrated naked city
by Ross Velton
Libertines and naturists alike abound in Cap d'Agde, the legendary nudist resort town in Southern France that attracts 300,000 visitors each summer. Cap d'Agde offers more than a gorgeous wide stretch of nudist beach with some tacky gift shops and overpriced seafood restaurants. It's a full-fledged town with its own vibe and rhythm. Cap d'Agde can be laid back and sensual, exciting and erotic, busy and overbearing, and earthy and rude — but never quite normal, and normally quite surreal. When you see 100 people huddled in a circle on a certain stretch of beach in the Cap, don't automatically assume that they are waiting to buy ice creams. And, yes, you were the only person wearing clothes in the queue at the post office the other day. Cap d'Agde helps you make the transition from the humdrum to the slightly fantastic. This new book, published in April 2003, helps you cut through the media hype of what goes on at this amazing nudist town. Evaluates the restaurants, bars, dance clubs, saunas, and clubs in Cap d'Agde. Explains how nudists, Lifestylers, and gays all find their unique pleasures. The 192-page book is 5½ by 8½ inches with 16 pages of 32 color photos and 17 B/W photos.
