Montalivet-les-Bains, France - Two Official Nude Beaches

Montalivet Nude Beach
Montalivet has two nude beaches, north and south of the main town. The northern nude beach is adjacent to the Euronat naturist resort, 4km north of Montalivet-les-Bains, and the southern nude beach is next to the naturist resort of CHM Montalivet, a short walk south from Montalivet-les-Bains. Both beaches offer wide expanses of golden sand, a family-friendly atmosphere and there are even lifeguards patrolling the northern stretch.

  1. Montalivet Beach in France was named #1 Nude Beach in the World by South Beach Magazine.

  2. Among stiff competition, the nude beach resort of Euronat stands out for its clean golden sand, supervised swimming and friendly atmosphere. Thousands of happy families gather here, and the beach is open to both nudist campers and day visitors alike. Other highly regarded resort beaches heading south are Montalivet CHM, La Jenny and Arnaoutchot. From the seaside town of Montalivet-les-Bains, drive north on the D102 coast road. After 3 kms the road turns sharply right inland. Park and walk on to the beach - the main bare area is to the right. - Nick Mayhew-Smith

  3. Travelers looking for an authentic nude beach experience should go to Centre Hélio Montalivet, the birthplace of the international naturist movement. Established in 1950, this nude beach resort on France's Atlantic Coast provides a safe and legal wilderness setting for nudists and their families. Within the complex are more than 1,800 camp sites, 172 bungalows, shops and facilities for art classes, yoga, soccer and more. No other nude beach or camp on earth rivals Montalivet's family-friendly environment. - Melanie Mize

  4. Near Bordeaux, the camp CHM set on huge naturist reserve, established in 1950 and bordered by pine woods & sand dunes. Creating an atmosphere that "spans the generations", a resort complete with supermarket, hair-stylist and clothing shop (?). During high season 12 to 14,000 visitors a day and on the beach watched over by nude life-guards wearing yellow t-shirts. - Steve
