Nude Beach Map. Visited 2023
Sérignan Plage is a purely authentic French nude beach experience and most people have been coming here for generations. We stayed at a campground on the beach, thoroughly enjoying the relaxed vibes and short walk to the beach everyday. The sand is white and fluffy plus the sandhills kind of give it a private tranquil backdrop. You’ll find lots of families and couples on the beach, most staying at nearby camp resorts. It’s one of the few city nude beaches we’ve been to where it was almost impossible to spot textiles on the beach – nudity is the majority!

While nearby Cap d’Agde seems to have succumb to the swingers vibe (nothing against that, if you’re into it) – you definitely will not find people wearing lingerie here or see sex acts out in the open. Inappropriate behavior in public would not be tolerated here. It was a refreshing change coming back here after experiencing a day out at Cap d’Agde. Beware that the whole coastline here can get very crowded in peak season (July-August) and you’d be wise to make reservations well in advance. It is not a secluded or especially tranquil experience on a busy day, but you will find that people are very respectful and friendly.
Sérignan Plage is about 2km long with most of the nude accommodation located in the middle of the beach. It is flanked on one side by nature reserve and the other side by restaurant bars, attracting plenty of windsurfers on the beach. Note that we didn’t see any nudity while at the restaurant bars and they are a fair walk on the sand from the nude section. There is a small grocery store and some smaller bistros located near the nude section, however the Camping Naturiste resort doesn’t seem to allow day visitors – only people with reservations.
We enjoyed traveling into nearby Sérignan for supplies and packed our own lunches for a day at the beach. The nearby city has everything you could need and is much cheaper than the supply stores on the beach. The local wines in this region are affordable and obviously world class (this is prime Languedoc-Roussillon territory!). The city is a quick 5-10minute drive away or you could use a free bicycle if you’re staying at one of the resorts – they all seem to have them. Try and brush up on your French if you can! We tried our best but in some cases had to bring out the phone to translate. Merde! Despite this everyone was friendly and welcoming.
Overall Sérignan Plage is highly recommended. Despite the fact there were lots of European families here, we didn’t feel out of place being a younger solo couple. In fact we were invited (more like ‘friendly forced’) into playing pétanque several times with visiting French families – it was lots of fun! There is a great sense of community and camaraderie at Sérignan Plage, you can tell that this beach means a lot to the visitors that make the trek here each summer. Next time we’d stay at Le Sérignan Plage Nature where it seemed most people ‘camped’ – using that term lightly because it is a very comfortable experience with air conditioned cabins etc.. The resort seemed to have more facilities available and it would be easy to be sans clothing all day if you choose.

While Sérignan Plage is accessible by public transport, it can be a little tricky and spread out. Having your own car will make the experience more enjoyable. The nude section of the beach is located in the middle of the beach, however in peak times it seems as if the whole beach is naked.
There are car parks nearby, although be aware that parking fees apply. The closest parking spot is Parking Serignan Plage - from there it is a 200m walk along a dirt trail. Turn left for the main nude section of the beach.
If you're using public transport, take a train from Montpellier to Béziers, which usually takes about 30 minutes. From Béziers, you can take a bus (line 16) which has several stops in Sérignan. From there, it's a short taxi ride or a longer walk to Sérignan Plage.
If you're flying, the closest airport is Béziers Cap d'Agde Airport, about 15 kilometers away. From there, you can hire a car or take a taxi to Sérignan Plage. Alternatively, you can fly into Montpellier-Méditerranée Airport and either hire a car or take a train to Béziers, then continue by bus to Sérignan.
Le Sérignan Plage Nature - ⭐️⭐️⭐️
This place is like a little nude city located right near the beach. You'll find restaurants, a grocery store, pools and facilities in the complex. It describes itself as a high end camping resort and from what we've seen it doesn't disappoint. There are lots of options for accommodation here - from tent camping to deluxe bungalows. There is also a section for adults only, if you want to get away from the families for a while. Nudity is required here during certain times of the day.
