Saint Germain Nude
Saint Germain, France - Officially
Recognised Nude Beach
and Hatainville Plage a little
further north are part of the
vast stretch of safe, unspoilt
sandy beaches and dunes that form
the West Coast of the Cotentin
peninsula, although only St Germain
is officially a nude beach. It
can be reached by turning off
the D650 main road from Cherbourg,
just west of St Germain sur Ay,
on the D306 to Saint-Germain-Plage
village, then heading south as
far as possible.
NUDE BEACH REPORTS:
Plenty of information
including a map at the bottom of
the page showing the nude beach.
by Organisation Naturiste Européene.
The west side of
Normandy's Cotentin peninsula is
known as the Mother-of-Pearl Coast,
with vast, empty sandy beaches,
rolling dunes, wild, windblown headlands
and huge skies, reminiscent of Norfolk,
only generally warmer. St-Germain-sur-Ay
is a huge, empty, unspoilt beach
that's perfect for family picnics.
It's a designated nude beach, but
few people strip off. -
